What You’ll Need

Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make edible cookie dough at home. See the recipe card located at the bottom of the post for full details and instructions.

  • butter- I generally use salted butter, unsalted works just fine too.
  • light brown sugar- Make sure you pack your brown sugar when measuring.
  • granulated sugar– This fine white sugar brings sweetness to the cookie dough.
  • pure vanilla extract– For best tasting results, use pure vanilla.
  • all-purpose flour– Flour is the main dry ingredient in the cookie dough.
  • kosher salt- Kosher salt is a coarse salt commonly used in cooking and baking.
  • mini chocolate chips– Find mini chips near the regular chocolate chips.
  • heavy cream if needed to thin dough– Use heavy cream to thin the dough if it’s too dry.

How To Make Edible Cookie Dough

You’ll be amazed by how easy it is to make this recipe. Here’s how to do it:

Prepare Cookie Dough. Place softened butter into a medium mixing bowl. Cream sugars until well combined. Add vanilla stirring well. Stir in flour, salt and chocolate chips until dough forms.

Use Heavy Cream If Dough Is Dry. If dough is dry, drizzle 1-2 tablespoons heavy cream in dough to bring together. Cover tightly with plastic wrap or lid until ready to use. Best if NOT refrigerated unless using the heavy cream.

If dough is too dry, add a small amount of heavy cream to help. Doesn’t take much.

How To Serve Edible Cookie Dough

Serve cookie dough as a sweet side to any dessert table. Delicious by the spoonfuls, or as a dip for graham crackers.

Tips For Making The Best Cookie Dough

  • Don’t alter the recipe, use all ingredients as listed.
  • Always use butter, not margarine.  ALWAYS.  I prefer salted butter for my chocolate chip cookies.  Try it!
  • Don’t try to bake this cookie dough. This recipe is for edible cookie dough, not making cookies! The cookie dough itself is for eating & snacking.

What do I do if my cookie dough is too dry?

If the dough is a bit dry, add a good tablespoon of heavy cream or milk to the bowl.


Store any leftover dough in an airtight container for up to 3 days. If using cream, store in the refrigerator. For best results, keep at room temperature.

    I just made this, but only made 1/4th the recipe. I ate it all in one sitting! So good! I love your website! Best cookie recipes ever!

    This recipe looks delicious! I love cookie dough, so I am going to love trying this out and not worrying about getting sick! I have made this before and have refrigerated it, since I feel as it holds the shape longer and won’t melt too much. Here is another recipe, just as delicious, with refrigeration: https://omghow.com/articles/eggless-cookie-dough . Thanks so much for your insight!

      I made this recipe just as is and it turned out wonderfully! We made it for friends and family for Christmas gifts and everyone raved about it, most eating gobs of it upon opening. Thanks!

    This didn’t work well for me. I made a batch and it was super grainy and crumbly. I figured it had some something wrong so I made another batch carefully following the directions. Sadly, it turned out the same. I badly wanted my dough to taste as amazing as the picture looks but it didn’t happen πŸ™ It’s like eating Moon Sand and isn’t very sweet. I love PP but wanted to share that this didn’t work.

    I have a major sweet tooth and have been trying to find a “better for you” cookie dough recipe and this is SO GOOD even without the chips, not a big fan of chocolate.

    I made this, didn’t have any brown sugar, so I subbed in white and added 1/2 t. molasses. It was kind of grainy, but tasted great. I immediately ate a quarter of it. πŸ™

    ooooohhhh…soooo good!This recipe is absolutely AMAZING! I don’t know why I never thought of it myself.

      My dad and I baked them at 375 f just to see if they would turn out nice. We didn’t time them, we just watched to see when they were golden brown.These cookies,when baked, are almost as good as they are unbaked!

  10. Kristen

    That is great!!! I can’t wait to see what is coming on Monday. My family would definitely all be fighting for this bowl.

    What a fun snack! I don’t know if I’ll be able to stop myself eating cookie dough with raw eggs, but this might help me kick the habit πŸ™‚

  12. Averie @ Averie Cooks

    Love it, and love that you didn’t put cream cheese into it. I know this tastes just like the real deal! Mmmm! πŸ™‚
