Since the pandemic began forcing us all to spend more time at home, big brands have revealed the secrets of how to make iconic recipes at home, from Disney’s Dole Whip to Popeye’s Chicken Marinade.

Ben and Jerry's cookie doughBen & Jerry’s

Last week, another legendary fave shared its highly-coveted recipe. We’re talking Ben & Jerry’s edible chocolate chip cookie dough–the same cookie dough that’s frozen into chunks of the addictive ice cream.

The recipe is easy to make and has just seven ingredients. It’s also safe to eat raw since it doesn’t require eggs and the flour is heat-treated to destroy any potentially harmful contaminants. Get the recipe here.  

If you and the kids are guilty of eating raw cookie dough (and who isn’t?), we have even more big news. Pillsbury has just revamped its cookie and brownie dough recipes (yes they make brownie dough, too!) so that they, too, can safely be eaten raw. 


Pillsbury is also now using heat-treated flour and pasteurized eggs so you can safely eat the dough straight from the package. “Families can now enjoy the mischief of stealing tasty bites of raw cookie or brownie dough as a spur-of-the-moment treat,” Tiffany Seelen, brand experience senior manager at Pillsbury, said in a news release. 

We’re sensing a trend here and we’re totally on board. Because you really can’t ever have enough cookie dough while lounging in your PJs in the comfort of your own home.
