Heather's Safe to Eat Raw Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

"We are huge cookie fans and possible even bigger cookie dough fans! Realizing it probably wasn't all that great to be allowing my family to devour chunks of cookie dough at a time - I created a SAFE TO EAT raw cookie dough recipe. We keep this in the fridge and grab a hunk whenever we feel the urge - and we also freeze scoops of this stuff to snack on later. Perfect for mixing into ice cream."

Ready In:




  • In large bowl cream butter and sugar until light in color.
  • Add pudding and combine well.
  • Stir in vanilla and milk.
  • Add baking soda, if you choose to & flour 1/2 cup at a time until combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Store in fridge or freeze small scoops in the freezer.
  • Enjoy, WITHOUT the worry of eating raw eggs.
  • You can choose to leave out the baking soda, but it adds a nice flavor to the dough, and I find we miss it when it is not there.

  1. This recipe is awesome! I made a few changes... found out my milk was bad so I used half-n-half instead. I also used all white flour and cook-and-serve pudding because that's all I had on hand. I used mini chocolate chips so only needed 1 cup. I used it to make chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream for my hubby for his Valentine's Day present. It's yummy!!<br/>UPDATE - made this again for Hubby for Valentine's Day this year, only this time I used a cookie cutter to cut it into heart shapes and rolled the rest in balls and flash froze them. Then I put them in a cute Valentine's box and kept it in the freezer until I gave it to him. Now he can take out bites at a time as he wants them.
  2. What an excellent idea! And very tastey! If you take the chips down to 1 cup and use mini morsels there is still plenty of chocolate and this becomes low fat! takes out almost 25% of the calories and 1/2 the fat!
  3. My son and I have tried several different recipes trying to find a raw cookie dough that actually tastes like the real stuff (but without the eggs). I have to say, this is even better than real cookie dough. We made a few changes based on what we had in the house. Here's what we added:<br/>1/4 cup white sugar<br/>1/2 less chocolate chips (we used the mini chips)<br/>2 vanilla jello pudding cups (we didnt have any dry pudding mix so we used the pre-made pudding that comes in cups. we also eliminated the milk. <br/>We formed them into balls, put them on wax paper and then refrigerated the balls on the paper in tupperware. They are so good fresh and even better refrigerated. We will definitely make these again.
  4. We have a definite winner here! I took the advice of some of the other reviews and made cookie dough truffles. I used less chocolate chips than called for since I was dipping them in chocolate almond bark. The truffles would be great at a bridal/baby shower!
  5. This stuff was a money maker! Took this to a dessert auction to raise money for girls camp. Each 10 ounce container auctioned off for $3 a piece! The girls ended up with over $700 that night! Everyone was so excited to have something different to bid on besides chocolate cake, which seemed to be the theme that night. I didn't use chocolate chips in this, instead I used mini M&M's. They give a really fun crunch to the dough. It stays soft and tastes great! I did use the soda too. You were right, it makes it taste perfect. Thanks for the delicious and safe recipe. We have always eaten the "unsafe" kind, playing Russian Roulette with each bite I guess, but this is the answer to our cookie dough eating prayers and we won't end up in the hospital from our bad habit! Thanks again!
