Satisfy your sweet tooth with this homemade Edible Cookie Monster Cookie Dough dessert!

Remember the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street? You know! The blue furry guy that’s obsessed with eating cookies. Yeah, him. That’s who this Monster Cookie Dough is named after. Light blue in color, this dessert is loaded with Oreos and chocolate chip cookies, making it a treat guaranteed to meet Cookie Monster’s standards. 

To be truthful, we’re quite the cookie connoisseurs ourselves. Actually, saying we’re obsessed with cookies is probably a bit of an understatement. With recipes like Ghraybeh, White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies, Chocolate Crinkle Cookies, and so many more, we always have a batch on hand.   

But every once in a while we’d rather just have the dough. So instead, of risking salmonella by consuming raw cookie dough that has eggs or buying the expensive pre-made ready-to-eat cookie dough from the store, we made our own Edible Cookie Monster Cookie Dough. Loaded with cookie chunks in every bite, it’s completely egg-free, meaning it’s safe to eat. So, go ahead and grab a spoon, and let’s dig in! 

Edible Cookie Monster Cookie Dough is a type of homemade cookie dough that is safe to eat raw without the risk of foodborne illness that is present with standard raw cookie dough. Given its name and blue hue, Cookie Monster Cookie Dough in particular is inspired by the Cookie Monster from Sesame Street

It’s safe to eat because the dough is made with heat-treated dough and no raw eggs. As a result, it’s safe to eat right from the container without baking! That way you get all the gooey goodness of cookie dough with none of the risk. Fun to make and eat, it’s a sweet treat that everyone loves! 

  • 10 simple ingredients are all you need. 
  • It comes together in minutes
  • You can customize the add-ins including whatever you like. 
  • It’s completely safe to eat with no baking necessary! 

Ingredients You’ll Need

The base of this Edible Cookie Monster Cookie Dough comes together with just a handful of common, pantry staple ingredients. Here’s what you need: 

  • Flour – Regular all-purpose flour forms the base of the Cookie Monster Cookie Dough. Just make sure it’s heat-treated first! If needed, you can use a 1:1 all-purpose gluten-free flour instead. 
  • Sugar – Granulated sugar sweetens the dough, creating a classic cookie dough taste. 
  • Butter – Opt for unsalted butter to create a rich flavor. For the best results, allow it to sit out and soften before mixing. 
  • Milk – As with most of our dessert recipes, we like to use whole milk for a richer taste. However, any milk you have on hand will work great. 
  • Sea Salt – A little goes a long way to enhance the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Vanilla Extract – Pure vanilla extract adds extra depth, creating the best recipes. 
  • White Chocolate – White chocolate chips add little pockets of sweetness to the dough. 
  • Oreo Cookies – We like to use mini Oreos so you get crunchy pieces of chocolate cookie goodness in every bite. Or, you can use whole Oreos, and crumble them up! 
  • Chips Ahoy Cookies – Using pre-made chocolate chip cookies helps make this recipe super quick. However, if you’ve got the time, Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies make for an amazing addition to this edible cookie dough! 
  • Sprinkles – From cupcakes to ice cream, and everything in between, brightly colored sprinkles help make everything more fun! 
  • Blue Food Coloring – Technically optional, this gives the dough its fun blue appearance, making it truly monster-like. 

How to Heat-Treat Flour

Heat-treating flour is the best way to ensure all your raw desserts like no-bake bites and edible cookie dough are safe to eat. Read more about why and how to do it here. In the meantime, we’ll break the process down quickly! 

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit
  2. Arrange the flour in a single layer on a baking sheet
  3. Bake for 5 minutes. 

This Monster Cookie Dough recipe is even easier to make than standard chocolate chip cookies or peanut butter cookies! Here’s how it’s done: 

  1. Combine the Ingredients. Add the flour, sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, and salt to a large mixing bowl
  2. Beat. Use a hand mixer to mix the ingredients together until smooth. 
  3. Fold. Add the cookies, white chocolate chips, and sprinkles, using a spatula to gently fold them into the dough until they’re well incorporated. 
  4. Enjoy! Dig in right away.

Serving Suggestions

This Edible Cookie Monster Cookie Dough is great served on its own with nothing but a spoon! Or, use it as a dip and scoop it up with cookies, sweet crackers, or pieces of waffle cone. 

Additionally, if you want to get creative, try serving it in a waffle bowl or your favorite ice cream cone or sandwiched between cookies or waffles! 

How to Store 

This Cookie Monster Cookie Dough is best eaten right away as soon as it’s mixed. However, if you have extras or want to make it in advance, it can be transferred to an airtight container and stored in the fridge for up to 1 week. To eat, let it sit out and soften at room temperature for about 15-30 minutes so it’s easy to scoop, dip, and spread. 

For a longer-lasting option, keep it in the freezer for up to 1 month! Let it thaw in the fridge and soften at room temperature before eating.

Do I have to heat-treat the flour? 

Yes, flour is raw and may contain harmful bacteria that could make you sick. Baking it in the oven helps kill any bacteria or pathogens, making it safe to eat. 

Can I bake this cookie dough? 

No, this cookie dough does not contain any leavening ingredients or those that provide structure like baking soda or eggs. That means that it would just spread out and fall flat in the oven and wouldn’t taste super great. However, if you’re looking for baked cookies, we’ve got tons of cookie recipes for you to choose from!
