I’m not proud of my snacking behavior this week.
My New Year’s resolution was to stop skipping breakfast, and unless you count milky tea, I have definitely broken my resolution. There was the morning I had 3 dates for breakfast (dates, as in the dried fruit, not awkward meet-ups). The next morning, half of a sweet potato. And I’m afraid I sunk as low as leftover cold tater tots yesterday morning.
And as the saying goes, if you skip breakfast, your eating habits quickly decline for the rest of the day as well. And while I should probably be more concerned, I just can’t because this delicious, creamy edible cookie dough dip is the result of some wayward sliding eating habits.
And it is so very good and worth all the things.
It is edible cookie dough. It’s eggless cookie dough meant for dipping and eating raw. It’s heaven-sent.
I had a cookie dough craving, and I solved it without eating a ton of cookie dough. And for that, I should get a medal, don’t you think?
This recipe makes one small heaped ramekin of cookie dough dip. For those of us that cannot be trusted around cookie dough, small batch treats are a gift.
I need to know: what’s your cookie dough behavior? When you make chocolate chip cookies, what ratio of dough actually makes it into the oven? I’m afraid I’m good for about one cookie’s worth of dough on my spoon, raw. I lack the patience to wait for the warm cookies to come out of the oven. Plus, cold creamy cookie dough is pure comfort for me. If you don’t like it, there’s probably something wrong with you genetically, and you should definitely get that checked by a doctor.
This dip has all the lovely components of cookie dough, but a bit softer and more dip-able! You can dip pretzels for that sweet-salty thang, or you can dip vanilla wafers. I switch off–one pretzel, one cookie, and then suddenly, the whole ramekin is gone.
And yes, if you’re a better person than me, you can easily double this recipe and share it with someone on the couch during a Netflix marathon.
I just don’t have it in me to share cookie dough dip. Sorry.
Don’t skip breakfast, or you’ll end up like me, with a plate full of cookie dough dip and dippers. Well, maybe you wanna be a little like me? :)
