       This delicious, quick, and easy Cookie Dough Frosting is a fantastic (and quick!) way to indulge your cookie cravings!

    Creamy Cookie Dough Frosting (No Egg!)

    Cookie Dough & Raw Flour

    This recipe has been very controversial on my blog… and not because of raw egg because there is none of that. But because of the “raw” flour. After doing extensive research I have concluded that this is not something I consider a risk to my family. You will, of course, want to make your own best-educated choice.. (See Yes, it’s OK to Eat Raw Flour for more information.)

    If you have any hesitancy at all about eating raw flour, simply place flour on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes at 350°F. Easy peasy!

    No matter how you make it, this Cookie Dough frosting has the texture of silk and completely melts in your mouth. And because it is so fast, you can quench any chocolate chip cookie craving is just moments!

    How to Make Edible Cookie Dough

    You will see that I wrote 16 tablespoons in the recipe.  As annoying as that is, I found that I liked the texture better when the milk was very slowly incorporated.  You can certainly just add in 1 cup of milk all at once.

    I used far more milk than the original recipe suggested.  The reason I did this is that the frosting was being used in a layer cake and it was far too hard to spread as-is.  So I doubled the milk to achieve a much creamier and smoother frosting. I highly recommend that for use on cakes!  If you just want to put a big dollop on a cupcake, try halving the milk and seeing if you prefer that consistency.

    Edible Cookie Dough Recipe

    As I mentioned above, this cookie dough recipe was modified so that I could use it on cakes. If you use less milk, you will see a more “traditional” cookie dough, one that needs to be scooped rather than spread.

    You can also play with this recipe to your heart’s content! Try adding sprinkles instead of chocolate chips, or white chocolate chips and finely chopped macadamia nuts, or a bit of cocoa for a chocolate chocolate chip cookie dough!

    I prefer semi-sweet (or even bittersweet) chocolate chips in this frosting.  The slightly bitter chocolate compliments the sweet cookie dough quite nicely.

    I used a Easiest Chocolate Cupcake recipe to test out my frosting on. It was a match made in heaven of course!

    I cannot wait to try some of your creations. YOU ARE CREATIVE!:} please, continue.

    I just made this frosting! It is soooo good! I used a cake mix for the cupcakes, but there is way too much frosting left over. Can I refrigerate it for any period of time?

    I do not understand the issue of using “raw flour”. I need to be educated.

    U AI amazing ad good. Need cake book.

    Would you change anything for gluten free flour? Increase or decrease measurements?

    i cant wait for my 11 year old to make this.yummy

    I made the frosting and used dark sugar because I did not have light. I made it and not only was it runny but had a strong flour taste. Please let me know what I did wrong. And can I put nuts instead of Choc chips?

    Thank you.

      Put it in the refrigerator. I bet you butter was to warm.
