Lets be honest, the yummiest thing ever is unbaked cookie dough! A friend said that most cookies actually taste better in their raw dough form than in their baked form, and I had to agree!
Another friend mentioned that she had made a cookie dough dip for a party, and I was intrigued! The eggs are omitted from the recipe so that it is safer to eat, and I wanted to give it a shot! Why am I using so many exclamation marks!?! Haha....oh boy...
I made a batch of the cookie dough dip from a recipe I found online, and it was not so good. Well, it was good-ish. Butter, sugar, flour, chocolate chips, what's not to like? Well, mainly, the gritty sugar! Think about it, creaming butter and sugar, for any amount of time, will never get the sugar to dissolve fully.
So then I found another recipe that had cream whisked in with the sugar, then you added butter and mixd it all up, but that still didn't do the trick.
So, I decided to melt the butter and sugars together to get rid of the grit...but then I accidentally made fudge. Don't worry, I just ate it out of the pan with a spoon.
Usually I would give up on something that was being so stubborn, but gosh darn it, I love chocolate chip cookie dough and I was determined to get it right!
The next problem was that you need to add regular flour to the dough, and I wanted to make it gluten free so that my Caleb could partake, but just swapping out regular flour for gluten free doesn't always go well.
Such dilemmas! I'm very dramatic when it comes to dessert related issues. :)
Well, let me tell you, I figured out such a tasty chocolate chip cookie dough dip that is not only smooth and not gritty at all, but it is gluten free-and flour free! What? I know, I know....I am amazing....I can hear the applause... :)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
I can't seem to get rid of this one down here.....just ignore it....
So, this dip is veeeeeery sweet. Fair square warning. So, if you wanna, and if you have some on hand, or you don't mind paying for this, you can use cream cheese instead of the marshmallow fluff.
You will need to really cream it properly with the icing sugar though, so a hand mixer would be needed. I've tried it both ways (cream cheese was on really cheap, and that's the only way I'll buy it!), and I liked it a lot. It is a little more rich, and there is a bit of that cheese-y taste you expect from cream cheese; it was more like a no-bake chocolate chip cheese cake dip, I guess.
Anywho, whatever way you make it....it's goooood. And not gritty! Hazaaa! Oh, I'm excited about this dip!
Next week I'll share what my twisted treat-day mind did with the dip to send it over the edge of deliciousness!
Have a great weekend!

You should be banned from posting recipes during Lent. I am making this on Sunday and dipping regular Ruffles in it. Awful!
