Nestle was a staple of my childhood, thanks to the chocolate chips, and of course, the classic recipe for chocolate chip cookies on the back of the bag. I loved coming home after school to find a batch of fresh-made chocolate chip cookies, set on the table to cool.
What if there was a way to have an after-school (or after-work) snack without having to do much more than turn on your oven? Costco has you covered with this enormous bucket of chocolate chip cookie dough!
This Is What You Need to Know
The 5-pound buckets of Nestle Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough have been found on Costco’s Instacart. You read that right—five pounds. That’s enough to make 81 Nestle chocolate chip cookies! Just grab a cookie scoop and a Taste of Home baking sheet, and you’re only minutes away from fresh-baked cookie goodness.
You can find the tubs of joy in the freezer section at Costco, though there’s no guarantee they’ll fit in your kitchen’s freezer. Hmm. It might be time to find a second freezer for the garage.
What to Do with the All That Dough
Personally, I would pick up this tub to create quick treats for my friends. But if you’re handier in the kitchen than I am, try using the dough as a dessert base. Find a recipe that starts with a cookie dough base and go to town! You can start with cream cheese cookie cups or this gorgeous chocolate chip cookie delight. In my house, neither dessert would last for long.
The dough is good for up to 2 months, so no rush to do all your baking at once. The only thing you won’t want to do is stick a spoon in the bucket for a bite of raw dough, which can be dangerous.
How Much Is It?
The bucket should be around $8, which is about half the cost of this 7-pound bucket of Nutella. For whatever baking adventure you choose to take, this huge tub will be there for you. It might even be one of the best value things you can buy at Costco. So, remember to look for cookie dough next time you’re out shopping. And don’t be afraid to comb through the aisles. Who knows what you’ll find?
