Variations on this Recipe

This recipe makes enough for a satisfying single serving but if you want to make more, this recipe doubles very easily. If you prefer your edible cookie dough recipe to be chocolate, add in a couple of teaspoons of cocoa and a little bit more milk until it reaches the perfect consistency.

Another great way to make this chocolate chip cookie dough recipe more appealing to chocolate lovers is to add in a teaspoon of chocolate syrup. Add in a little bit more flour if needed to fix the consistency, ensuring the final product has that cookie dough texture we all know and love.

You may also enjoy omitting the chocolate chips or adding in peanut butter cups along with a teaspoon of creamy peanut butter. This is my favorite way to enjoy any dessert, slathered in peanut butter. Yum!

Who else thinks peanut butter makes everything better? I can’t be the only one!
