People are stuck at home missing their favorite foods. Luckily some brands have been sharing their fan-favorite recipes. Now Ben & Jerry’s is stepping up to satisfy our sweet tooth. 

Ben & Jerry’s just shared their edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe which is the same one used for the frozen balls found in their popular ice creams.

Cookie dough


8 tbsp. unsalted butter (1 stick), room temperature

1 cup brown sugar, packed

2 tbsp. heavy cream

1 tsp. vanilla extract

½ tsp. kosher salt

1 cup flour

 ½ cup chocolate chips

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time:  15 minutes 

Total Yield: About 2 cups


Step 1: Gather all your ingredients.

Step 2: First, heat treat the flour to ensure it is safe to eat. Do not skip this step, untreated flour can contain contaminants and is not safe to eat. Place the flour in a microwave safe bowl and microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring in between. Use an instant-read thermometer to ensure that the flour reaches 165°F throughout.

Step 3: In a stand mixer or using a hand mixer, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Step 4: Add the vanilla, cream, and salt. Mix to combine. Then add the heat treated flour and mix to incorporate.

Step 5: Fold in the chocolate chips.

Step 6: Serve and enjoy! 

Store your uneaten edible cookie dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to one week, or in the freezer for up to six months.
