It’s not every day that you come across a recipe that literally melts your taste buds and has you over cloud nine. Over the weekend, I discovered a recipe off Pinterest, and I can NOT believe how delicious and heavenly it was.

Deep Fried Cookie Dough is a combination of edible cookie dough and funnel cake batter, fried in a shallow to the deep pan until golden brown. Despite the level of crispiness, it’s the gooey interior that really has you abuzz! The second time I tried this recipe, I experimenting with ways I could personalize this dessert/snack/breakfast/every meal of your entire life, to my own taste.

Below, you’ll find the recipe to these amazing delights. Try them yourselves!

DEEP FRIED COOKIE DOUGH BALLS

cookie recipe

Ingredients:

For the Cookie Dough Interior
  • ½ cup Brown sugar
  • ¼ cup Butter or margarine
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • All-purpose flour (try coffee flour!)
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
For the Funnel Cake Batter
  • 1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup Milk
  • ¼ cup Powdered sugar (for the smooth batter)
  • Pinch salt
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil

PROCEDURE

In a blender, combine all the ingredients together, adding the all-purpose flour last. Pour into a bowl once smooth batter forms.

In a separate bowl combine all the ingredients together and fold in the chocolate chips until you have a medium-moist dough. Form 2 inch sized balls out of them.  You can add a bit of flour to your hands if things get sticky. Place the cookie dough balls in the fridge for 30 mins.

AFTER 30 minutes

Heat a wok or a shallow frying pan at low to medium heat. Allow the oil to heat up for a few minutes.

Take out the cookie dough balls out of the fridge and dip them one by one into the batter. Place in the frying oil and let fry until golden brown. It should literally take a minute.

If you have leftover batter, you can make a funnel cake by pouring the batter in a spiral shape and let fry in the oil until golden brown on both sides.

Serve either as is, or you could top with chocolate syrup, cinnamon-sugar powder or whipped cream.

Ice cream works too!
