Go ahead, eat the cookie dough

more dip

If there were only one food left on the world to eat, and I get to pick which one, ands down, it would be chocolate chip cookie dough.  That’s right. Raw as rain.

Everyone thinks Ben and Jerry invented Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, but it was really moi.  I discovered the combination when I was still wearing saddle oxfords and pig tails.

I usually have to double the recipe for cookies if I want any left to pop in the oven.  I still prefer the dough raw and never


really worry about salmonella – just about blowing up – to the size of a house.

Imagine my delight when I visited the Christmas open houses and discovered a shop was serving chocolate chip cookie dough dip with graham crackers for dippers.  Oh, sweet Betty Crocker, I’d died and gone to heaven.

I never made to any other open houses and had to get someone to drive me home for a nap.  The shop owner winked at me as I pushed my way to the front of the line and she whispered she would get the recipe for me.

Good to her word, here it is-

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

1 package of cream cheese (8 ounces)

1 stick of butter

1/4 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup confectioners sugar

2 tablespoons brown sugar

3/4 cup mini chocolate chips

chopped pecans

Cream the cream cheese and softened  butter until fluffy – add remaining ingredients except pecans.  Refrigerate two hours and sprinkle with chopped pecans to taste.  Serve with graham sticks.

  1. This sounds great. Will try it. Wondering…does anyone have a really good recipe for Lemon Squares?

  2. This may well be the recipe of the YEAR!!!!!

    I think this tops “OoeyGooey” Cake!!! Yes there is a cake called that, but, you probably do know that!! LOL,



  3. Emily, have you made the crockpot candy with peanuts and chocolate? So easy and so good. Just dump ingredients in crockpot. Let it cook 2 hours, then stir and spoon onto wax paper.

  4. Can you put it on the blog – our readers need to know about this. I have the recipe somewhere – probably in the bottom of a purse somewhere.

  5. Crockpot Chocolate Peanut Clusters
    16 oz jar dry roasted unsalted peanuts
    16 oz jar dry roasted salted peanuts
    12 oz package sweet chocolate morsels
    package of German Chocolate break into pieces
    large package of white almond bark if this is one large plank, break into pieces
    Turn crockpot to low setting and put ingredients into crockpot in the order listed. This is very important!!! Do not mix. Put lid on and cook 2 hours or until chocolate is melted. Stir well and drop onto lightly buttered or sprayed wax paper. Allow to completely harden (takes about an hour) and place in covered containers.
    Emily, I have seen so many cooks on the tv shows put cinnamon and coffee in their chocolate, am thinking I may add those two ingredients to this candy when we make it this year.
    Still waiting on someone to share a good lemon bar recipe!!!
