5 Sweet Ideas for Using Ben & Jerry's Snackable Cookie Dough

I scream, you scream, we all scream for cookie dough sans ice cream. No spoon necessary!

No doubt people have been eating raw cookie dough for as long as they've been baking cookies. As long as you follow a recipe to make it safely (with heat-treated flour and no raw eggs), there's no reason not to enjoy this delectable treat. Over the last few years, some food companies have made it even easier with ready-made cookie dough bites. One of our favorite kinds is Ben & Jerry's Snackable Cookie Dough.

It's available in three flavors: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. The most obvious way to eat this dreamy creamy snack is by inhaling it as-is, and we're in full support of that exploit. And while they're not specifically meant to be baked, there's no reason you can't pop them in the oven and bake them into sweet little chip-like crispy cookie bites.

But what really intrigues us about these snacks is that they would also work as an easy (and indulgent) addition to other sweet treats. Here are five ways that Ben & Jerry's Snackable Cookie Dough can make an existing food even yummier.
