16 Pics That Prove Cookie Dough Isn't Just For Cookies

Diply 21 Mar 2018

Like basically every child, my favorite part of making cookies with my mom was tasting the cookie dough. Her go-to chocolate chip recipe was magical, and I wanted to just eat the balls of dough whole. As I got older and was less carefully watched, I definitely tried this. It was, of course, amazing.

I did, of course, get a stomachache.

Now, however, genius folks are making dough with eggs and heating up raw ingredients like flour to make it perfectly safe to eat large amounts of cookie dough. It's a better world, and these scrumptious photos are the result.

1. Okay, clearly we have to start with this.

Gasp at the Oreo crust, let your eyes absorb the chocolate whipped cream, and imagine the silkiness of the cheesecake. Now remember that it has chunks of cookie dough and fall over, overwhelmed.

These bars look so perfectly chewy, correcting all the issues I have with how the graham crackers in real s'mores crack and make the marshmallow and chocolate fall in the dirt.

Just me?

Umm, why don't they serve deep-fried cookie dough at every fairground? Balls of butter and sugar can only get better when you add tons of oil.

Sorry, do you have any Mars bars to dip in? No? How about gingerbread? How can I get the most sugar per yummy bite?

Boxes of chocolate are infamously fickle on quality, but I would be perfectly content with an entire box of these.

I am all here for the overnight oats trend, mostly because it means I can just stick a spoon in a jar in the morning and start eating. Cookie dough brings this to a whole new level.

I didn't realize before that cupcakes were missing something, but now I know. Cookie dough frosting seems more like a seven-year-old's dream than an actual thing, but here we are.

Sugar cookie dough fudge made with cream cheese, white chocolate, and sprinkles is possibly a fudge so special that it should only be eaten once in a lifetime, but I'm willing to try twice.
