Ben & Jerry’s Shared Their Secret Recipe For Edible Cookie Dough And It Looks Dough Good



Finally, a fearless way to eat cookies in their truest form.

By now, we know that the raw eggs and untreated flour in cookie dough can make us sick. By now, we also know there’s no resisting the urge to sneak a taste of that delectable dough right from the bowl it was mixed in. We are only human! Well, there is a way to enjoy all the raw cookie dough you want by simply omitting the eggs and heat treating the flour and luckily for us, Ben & Jerry’s just shared their scrumptious looking secret recipe.

First things first: how the heck do you heat treat flour? According to Ben & Jerry’s official website “there are two main ways to heat treat flour so that it’s safe to eat in edible cookie dough. The easiest method is to microwave your flour on high until it reaches 165°F throughout. Use an instant-read thermometer to make sure that it has all reached 165°F, then stir it into your edible cookie dough recipe as usual. The other method is to heat your flour in a conventional oven. Spread the flour out on a rimmed baking sheet and bake it in a preheated oven at 300°F in 2-minute intervals, checking the temperature after each interval until it reaches 165°F throughout.”

Sounds simple enough! The edible dough making process is actually altogether simple, plus it will keep in an airtight container for one week in the fridge or six months in the freezer. Who has that kind of self control to wait six months to enjoy the deliciousness?


Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time:  15 minutes
Total Yield: About 2 cups

  • 8 tbsp. unsalted butter (1 stick), room temperature
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 cup flour
  •  ½ cup chocolate chips


  1. Heat treat your flour. Do not skip this step!
  2. Using a stand mixer, beat the sugar and butter until fluffy.
  3. Add in the vanilla, cream, and salt and mix to combine.
  4. Add the heat treated flour and mix to incorporate.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips
  6. Enjoy! No more worrisome dough eating!

This recipe is definitely a game changer and with the seal of approval from Ben & Jerry’s you know it’s going to be delicious!

Check Out All The Viral Foods Trending Now!



See the recipes for the dishes Wendy Williams and Brian tried on the show.

From TikTok to Insta to Twitter, nothing goes viral faster than something delicious…. or weird!

Here’s the segment, and below that, where you can find the recipes for all the things we talked about today!


Whenever you can find a unique meat substitute for bacon – or anything bacon related, for that matter… you’re going to pique some interest. The Salted Table is one of the social media destinations that has developed BACON made out of BANANA PEELS! The secret is in the marinade! CLICK the link to learn more, or watch the segment, which I will be posting after the show has aired across the country!


Here’s a simple truth – chips, crackers, cereal – if you like the flavor of these things, they’ll probably make a delicious breading for something you plan to fry. (People have been using Corn Flakes for their fried chicken, for example – so it stands to reason that DELICIOUS cheetos could be a great breading . But could you ever have predicted LOBSTER TAILS? @dashofblancoo did – and here it is!

You probably have seen the ranch flavored pickles that went viral (Wendy Williams and I tried them together on my last appearance!) This follows the same recipe! It’s simple – take a jar of dill pickles (preferably spears or precut pickles) and mix in a packet of taco seasoning. Let is soak in overnight – and you’re done!

Take a look…

This summer beverage was a shock to me – and I wasn’t so sure how I’d like it – I was pleasantly surprised!
Take cream, strawberry flavored drink mix (@goldenxclouds used KookAid) and whip it up. Then take a dollop of it and put it on top of your favorite lemonade! Mixing whipped cream and lemonade was an unexpected twist for me – but if you’ve got a sweet tooth – you’ll love it!
