Yum, yum, yum! Edible cookie dough is one of my new absolute favourite ‘puddings’ and one of the best things about it is how quick and easy it is. Now, there’s the best type of sweet treat – quick, easy and delicious. I thought, as I was making a few little pots of it to take to a socially distanced American themed lunch with my lovely friends, that today I would share exactly how you can make the ultimate cookie dough. I’ve slightly adapted this awesome BBC Good Food recipe and it the best recipe there is for the base of the cookie dough that I have found, so you might want to check that out too! Let’s get going, I’m too hungry to leave it any longer…
What you will need:
For the dough -100g butter, 160g any sugar (soft brown preferable), 140g plain flour, 1 tsp vanilla extract, pinch of salt, 2 tbsp milk, 50g chocolate broken up or chocolate chips
For the extras – 1 pack of Maltesers, 1 KitKat Chunky, 1 Pack of Chocolate Buttons, 1 Pack of White Chocolate Buttons… or any chocolatey toppings you desire!
First, measure out your sugar and butter and mix them together in your mixing bowl. Be sure to get your butter out in advance so it is room temperature, or you will be mixing for a long time! Or alternatively, use a mixer.
Now in a separate bowl place your plain flour, a pinch of salt, the vanilla extract and your chocolate chips/chunks.
Pour this into your main mixing bowl and get mixing again. After you have been mixing for a minute or so add some milk – this will help the mixture stick together. Keep adding milk until your mixture turns into a dough. Be careful not to add too much, but don’t worry if you do just add a little bit more flour to dry the mixture.
Choose what you want to serve your cookie dough in, I chose these cute little teacups! Share out the mixture equally using a spoon.
Now it is time to start decorating. I added Maltesers, both colours of chocolate button and then a chunk of KitKat chunky, but you could add any topping of your choice!
There you have it, your chocolate cookie dough pots are ready to eat. This recipe makes about enough for 4 generous portions or 6 medium ones! We will serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream on top and quite frankly, I cannot wait to get stuck in!
What toppings would be on your dream cookie dough pudding?
