This seemed like the thing to do.
This recipe was born out of necessity. A while ago I ordered some chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream from an ice cream place and the ice cream:cookie dough ratio was like 4085329:1, so I made us a more favorable ice cream:cookie dough ratio. What is that noise? That is the universe rejoicing. Gosh. So dramatic.
Now. I tried a version of this with peanut butter in place of the butter, but it just wasn’t the same. So I recommend this recipe as is. I mean, YOU do you, but I’m a fan of this recipe as is. I also made this recipe one time and packed the dough into a square and then cut it into smaller squares and kept it in the freezer to pop a piece as I pleased. So that is always an option.
Another option though is to make the cookie dough into cookie dough cups for your ice cream. Life needed a more exciting way to serve ice cream. Right? Right.
It’s a pretty simple recipe. Only 7 ingredients are needed. Most of which I imagine are things that are laying around your kitchen – brown sugar, flour, butter, chocolate chips – ya know, the basics. Also into the mix goes a pour of Almond Breeze Almondmilk to bring the dough all together.
I feel like this cookie dough would make a delicious layer for a popsicle. I’ll get on that.
For now, here’s a frozen treat to keep you super cool this summer.
Cookie Dough Ice Cream Cups
Yield: make 2-3 cookie dough cups
5 tablespoons flour
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons butter, softened
2 tablespoons chocolate chips
1-2 tablespoons Almond Breeze Almondmilk
In a bowl, combine all ingredients except your the Almond Breeze Almondmilk. Add in the Almondmilk one teaspoon at a time until a cookie dough consistency is reached. Turn over a muffin tin and cover the bottom with plastic wrap. Take a 1/3rd (or 1/2) of the cookie dough and roll it into a ball. Press the cookie dough over the muffin tin to make a bowl shape. Place in the freezer for at least 3 hours or overnight. Once hardened, wiggle the cookie dough cups off the bottom of the muffin tin and add in a scoop of your favorite ice cream.
