We made these into a chocolate chip edible cookie dough recipe but you could use peanut butter chips or make our edible brownie batter too! Love toffee, add 1/2 cup of crushed bits. Heck, add them both and have a sinful bite after dinner. (I won’t tell).

This is what ours looked like (above) once they were done. Actually my youngest two daughters made these without my help at all!! That’s what’s great about this edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe. NO oven, egg, or milk are required. So…let the kiddos help you in the kitchen when you make these treats.

Here she is rolling them up into balls with her hands. No, they don’t have to be perfect. It is nice to have them about the same size, bite sized so you can pop one in but that’s not required. 

  • My girls love to get in the kitchen and create new yummies. I let mine experiment together and make whatever they wanted using what we had in the pantry and this is what they came up with after a few initial test batches. 

They knew the basic ingredients needed to make no bake cookie bites since Miss. middle is taking home ec. in school now. So, they started from there and this is what they came up with.

It’s not every time that they have success but these came out so yummy (and pretty) that I thought I’d share with all of you.

One decided to leave them plain and my youngest decided to doctor them up with a little frosting spot at the top. These are great for experimenting with in the kitchen for all ages really. 

  1. Baking sheet
    1. just for refrigerating purposes
    2. this is the set I love
  2. Electric mixer
    1. if you’d rather have your kids use a spoon that is fine, just comes out smoother this way
  3. Room temperature salted butter
  4. Vanilla Extract
all purpose flour

Consuming raw cookie dough carries a potential risk of foodborne illness. Packaged in the refrigerated section that is supposed to be baked contains raw eggs and uncooked flour in it. Those can contain harmful bacteria like Salmonella and E. coli. Therefore, it is generally recommended to not eat that version as it is not designed for that.

If you want to indulge in cookie dough without the risk of food poisoning, you can make edible cookie dough that is specifically formulated to be consumed raw, like this. Using heat treated flour and no raw eggs we will show you how to make just that.

Here will provide instructions on how to make safe and delicious dough that can be eaten right out of the bowl without heating beforehand. Alternatively, you can bake the cookie dough into cookies to eliminate the risk of foodborne illness.

Edible Raw Cookie Dough
  1. All purpose flour
    1. if concerned about eating this raw here’s how to cook your flour
    2. it just takes 5 minutes at 350 degrees in a preheated oven
  2. Large bowl
  3. Mini chocolate chips
    1. or peanut butter chips, butterscotch, toffee bits etc…
  4. Rubber spatula
  5. Sugars, brown and white

Notes when making these bites

  • Make sure to mix your butter and sugar well so they are as smooth as possible
    • ensuring your butter is room temperature is the key to this
  • Use smaller chips if possible, it makes biting into and eating them easier
  • Create bite size pieces that are all relatively the same size
  • Store in the fridge
    • if keeping for longer than a day put them in an air tight plastic container
  • One or two is plenty
    • keep in mind there is still raw flour inside. There have been recalls in the past so cook flour to help avoid any issues

If you’re not planning on using it immediately, you can store it in the refrigerator or freezer for later use. To store in the refrigerator, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, or place it in an airtight container. Store it in the coldest part of your refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.

To store in the freezer, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap or aluminum foil, or place it in an airtight container. Freeze it for up to 3 months. When you’re ready to use it, thaw it in the refrigerator before consuming as it will become very hard and will hurt your teeth if bitten.

It’s important to label the cookie dough with the date it was made and the type of dough, so you can keep track of how long it’s been stored. Before using always inspect it for any signs of spoilage, such as an off smell or unusual texture. If in doubt, it’s always best to discard it to avoid any potential food safety issues.

  • First preheat your oven to 350 and pour flour on a baking sheet, bake for 5 minutes. Allow to cool. (this step is optional but we prefer to do it because of past recalls on flour) Then use a mixer on low speed to blend together your softened butter, brown sugar and white sugar until smooth.
  • Add your vanilla and cooled flour. Mix until well blended. Add chocolate chips and use a spoon to combine well.
  • Refrigerate for about 30 minutes to stiffen up a bit. Then take a heaping tbsp. full and roll it into your hands to make a ball.
  • Place equal sized, bite sized balls on a cookie sheet. Can create a divot on top of each one and squeeze a bit of vanilla frosting on top if desired. 
  • Keep in fridge on cookie sheet or if keeping for longer than 1 day, put in Tupperware container and enjoy one at a time.
