Everyone knows the best part about Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream is, of course, the cookie dough. But what if you added MORE cookie dough and what if that cookie dough was on the outside of each bite of delicious ice cream. Yep, we’re talking about Cookie Dough Ice Cream Bites.
We spotted a recipe for this fantastic creation online and we knew immediately that we had to create these tasty bites of heaven here in the Turkey Hill kitchen. Below is a photo of our handiwork along with the instructions.
And, yes, the cookie dough used in this recipe is 100 percent safe to eat uncooked, because it doesn’t contain eggs. In other words, if you have any dough left over, feel free to snack on it while your Cookie Dough Ice Cream Bites are chilling out in the freezer!
COOKIE DOUGH ICE CREAM BITES
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3 tsp. milk
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
A pinch of salt
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 stick of unsalted butter, softened
1 carton of Cookie Dough Ice Cream (or whichever flavor you’d like to use)
Combine all wet ingredients (except for the ice cream) in a mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add in all dry ingredients and stir until dough forms. Place the dough in the fridge for 15 to 30 minutes.
Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Scoop out ice cream into 10-15 single circles (about the size of a quarter in diameter) and place them on the paper. (You may need to do some shaping with your fingers and hands to make the ice cream balls a little rounder.) Place the tray with the ice cream into the freezer for 20 minutes.
Remove the dough from the fridge. On a separate piece of parchment paper, place one tablespoon of dough roughly six inches apart. Roll out each piece until it’s about 1/4 inch thick. (You can use a rolling pin or just used your hands.)
Remove ice cream from the freezer. Place a ball of ice cream in the center of each piece of dough. Wrap dough around the ice cream until you can no longer see the ice cream. Place on a baking tray, and set back in the freezer for two hours. Enjoy!
