So you've made halal butterbeer from the Wizarding World of Harry Potter and churros from Disneyland. Now what? ? Well, let us introduce you to the next yummy treat that'll be perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth - Ben & Jerry's edible chocolate chip cookie dough! They've recently shared the recipe to this delightful dessert and with only 7 ingredients needed, you simply can't pass up the chance of making it yourself.

Before we dive into the recipe, you might be wondering: Can I eat raw cookie dough? The short answer is yes, you can! You just need to remember two important things while making it: 1) It should be an eggless cookie dough, and 2) The flour should be heat-treated (Don't worry, it's much simpler than it sounds. You'll find out more in the recipe below).

We've swapped the vanilla extract from Ben & Jerry's original recipe with vanilla essence to make it an alcohol-free version, but the taste shouldn't be all that different. Now, let's get on with this halal edible chocolate chip cookie dough recipe! ?

Ingredients (yields 2 cups)

  • 1 cup flour
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1 ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • ½ cup chocolate chips


  1. First, heat-treat the flour. Simply place the flour in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high in 30 second-intervals, stirring in between. Using an instant-read thermometer, make sure the flour hits 73°C throughout. Alternatively, you can also follow Preppy Kitchen's method of heat-treating the flour in the video below: 

  1. With a stand or hand mixer, beat butter and sugar until it becomes light and fluffy.
  2. Add vanilla essence, cream and salt and mix everything together. Then add the heat treated flour and incorporate thoroughly. 
  3. Toss in the chocolate chips and fold into the dough.
  4. Serve and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

And that's it! With such a super simple and delicious recipe, you'll be making this edible chocolate chip cookie dough over and over again ?
