This Edible Cookie Dough Recipe is my favorite recipe to bring to parties! A small bite goes a long ways because they are so right, yet the cold chocolate chips give you the perfect crunch to keep you coming back for more.
We are huge fans of dessert at the Sorensen house, there’s no doubt about that. And, hands down, the number one, favorite dessert recipe in our home is cookie dough bars. The first time I ever tried this delicious made in Heaven concoction was a couple years ago to take to a friends house as the dessert. She was making the dinner and I had one job, the dessert. And, these edible cookie dough bars absolutely killed it.
I am a huge fan of easy desserts. We live in a go, go, go world, and therefore, a meal or a dessert that whips up in a short amount of time soon bubbles up the list to the number one spot. And, that’s probably how this cookie dough recipe keeps ending up on the menu. This is a great dessert for showers, and also a great dessert for tailgating. I promise everyone will love this no egg cookie dough!
