You Need More of Ben & Jerry's Snackable Cookie Dough In Your Life

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. There's even a keto-friendly, gluten-free version.

One of our favorite kinds is Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough Chunks, which is 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 as-is, and we're in full support of that exploit. But in recent months the company started combining its dough chunks with candy and calling it Cookie Dough Mixes. For example, they added mini peanut butter cups to the Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. This excellent idea made us want to try something more creative (read: indulgent). Why not try one of these cookie dough ideas?

  • Drop some dough bites into your hot chocolate. They'll melt, and so will you.
  • Stir a few chunks into your morning cereal. Because, breakfast of champions.
  • Pop them in the oven! They'll bake into sweet little chip-like crispy cookie bites.
  • Mix into your own favorite flavor of ice cream (chocolate chip cookie dough Cherry Garcia, anyone?) for the most meta dessert.
  • Use them as a cake or cupcake topper.
  • Mix them into brownie batter... or waffle batter.
  • Leave some out of the freezer for an hour for a freshly mixed-dough texture you can dip a spoon into.
  • Separate one cookie from an Oreo, plop a dough bite into the icing, and re-cookie the outside. It's the sandwich of every inner eight-year-old's dreams.
