If you’ve ever made cookies (please, let everyone have made cookies at least once!) you’ll know that there comes a time when you’re not sure if the cookies will actually be made; that time is once you’ve assembled the cookie dough. Making cookies from scratch or making them from a store-bought package results in deliciously sweet cookie dough that almost makes us forget about the final product.
As kids, indulging in the raw cookie dough was (and continues to be) our favorite part about making cookies, so we decided to find a way to turn the cookie dough into the main event. This cookie dough dip is the perfect treat that brings all those fun memories rushing back and is easy to whip up. Served with graham crackers or biscuits, this is the yummiest snack that will always brighten up your day…enjoy!
