Just when we thought we couldn’t possibly love our social-justice-slinging, anti-racist, ice-cream-scooping fake boyfriends Ben and Jerry any more, they went ahead and published the recipe for Ben & Jerry’s edible cookie dough to seal the deal. (This even beats the time they launched edible cookie dough bites.)
You’re probably like, um, isn’t all cookie dough *technically* edible lol, and while that’s not untrue, it’s also pretty risky to eat raw cookie dough willy-nilly, since it contains raw eggs and flour—a recipe for contracting salmonella and E. coli if we ever heard of one. Thankfully, the Ben & Jerry’s version has a workaround to make the dough safe to eat without baking, and it’s super easy. The recipe is eggless but it does contain flour, however, it gets heat-treated in the microwave to reach a bacteria-eliminating temperature of 165°F.
According to Ben and Jerry, you could technically bake this dough into actual chocolate-chip cookies if you wanted to…but do you really want to? We didn’t think so. Without further ado, here’s how to make the Ben & Jerry’s edible chocolate-chip cookie dough at home.
