With the holidays coming up, we’re looking for any sense of familiarity and comfort with the state the world is currently in. Between you and me, nothing’s more comforting than a mouthful of cookie dough.

Ben & Jerry’s has released two new seasonal flavors ahead of the holiday season in the form of Cinnamon Bun Cookie Dough Chunks and Gingerbread Cookie Dough Chunks.

Made with pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour, the cookie dough bites are safe to eat and ready to go from bag to mouth. The idea behind the Cinnamon Bun and Gingerbread releases was to evoke nostalgia for the holidays and bring you back to a magical time in your life.

The new flavors launching join Ben & Jerry’s existing lineup, which includes Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, and Half Baked.

Ben & Jerry’s Cookie Dough Is Now In Bite-Sized Snack Form

Ben & Jerry’s cookie dough is a favorite among fans, being found in several of their ice cream products. Well, now you can skip the ice cream altogether and just eat the dough on its own.

Ben & Jerry’s has announced the release of its new frozen Cookie Dough Chunks, that can be snacked on in bite-sized form.

“Fans have been asking for ‘just the chunks’ for a while now,” Ben & Jerry’s innovative manager  Jody Eley said. “During a short market test in Vermont last summer, fans snatched up the dough in record time.”

The cookie dough snacks will come in three different flavors: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough and Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough.

Fans of Ben & Jerry’s non-dairy options will get a familiar taste, as the cookie dough is the same that is used in the vegan ice cream pint options.

The bags come in half pound sizes, and needless to say, they are safe to eat raw.

We had a chance to try them in the office and nothing but thumbs up on our end. It’s hard to argue against B&J’s cookie dough, in any form.

“As someone who can’t eat gluten or dairy, Better Bites is my savior!” says Foodbeast’s Analiese Trimber. “I’m so used to products that sacrifice taste just to meet the buzzwords behind dietary restrictions.

Take Cookie Dough On The Go With This Low-Carb, Protein-Packed Crunchwrap

I love eating cookie dough straight from the tub. That sweet guilty pleasure has its consequences on my waistline, though, so I can’t do it too often. It’s also difficult to do anything else while spooning up buttery, sugary batter to eat.

This Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Crepe Crunch Wrap gets rid of both of those problems, and allows me to indulge a little more in my favorite treat. It gives me cookie dough in a portable form AND is super low in carbs and sugar.

The one-hander cookie dough treat was made by Zach Rocheleau, aka the @theflexibledietinglifestyle on Instagram. His version looks like a decadent delight, but actually contains fewer carbs than fat OR protein thanks to the incorporation of protein powders and Legendary Foods Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip nut butter.

Just 6 of the 17 grams of carbs in this crunch wrap come from sugar (another 5 are from fiber). 29 grams, or roughly half of the calories in this dessert, are from protein. So while you may regard this as a sweet treat, it’s low-carb and packs in some serious gains.

If you’re looking for a protein-packed cookie dough that you can take on the go, look no further than this recipe below.

Macros for WHOLE Crepe Crunch Wrap w/Cookie Dough Stuffing: 246 Cals, 17g Carbs (5g From Fiber, 6g Sugar) 18g Fat, 29g Protein

Recipe serves up to 2 people.

Ingredients
For the crepe
10g (2 tsp) Protein Powder
16g (1 Tbps)  Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Legendary Foods Nut Butter
50ml (2oz)  Egg Whites
1g (1/4th tsp) Stevia
For the cookie dough
16g 1 Tbsp) PB Chocolate Chip Legendary Foods Nut Butter
10g (2 Tbsp) Vanilla Protein Powder
5g ( 1¼ tsp) Coconut Flour
5g (1¼ tsp) Mini Chocolate Chips
1g (¼ tsp) Stevia
Water till consistency of cookie dough

Directions

Step 1
Add a glass of cold water with ice to your freezer for about 5 minutes. We will make the cookie dough first. Add your dry cookie dough ingredients except chocolate chips to a bowl and mix to avoid clumping. Then add nut butter and mix to incorporate. Take that ice water out of the freezer and slowly add a tiny bit of water at a time (like 20ml) and mix with your hand mixer. You can always add more water so be careful not to add too much. Mix and repeat till you have a cookie dough consistency. Put in the freezer to chill.

Step 2
Preheat medium frying pan on medium heat. Add dry crepe ingredients to a bowl and mix together to avoid clumping. Next, put egg whites in a separate bowl. Add your nut butter and mix together. If a spoon is not mixing it as well and you still have chunks, take a whisk and mix with that. Now dd your dry ingredients to egg whites/PB mixture and mix.

Step 3
Spray pan with non stick butter spray and add the crepe mixture to the pan. Do your best to do a circular motion with the pan so the crepe batter makes its way all across pan. It’s ok to use a spoon to spread it out but try not to make any holes in the crepe. Add cover on pan and cook for 2 minutes until bubbles start to come up to the top.

Step 4
Once bubbles are showing, take a spatula and gently pull up the edge of the crepe and then flip it over. Cook for 15 seconds on that side and then take off pan.

Step 5
Right when you take it off the pan is the best time to fold into a crunch wrap. So take it off and then it’s time to add your cookie dough. Place a dollop of cookie dough to the middle, making sure to leave plenty of room around the edges. Fold and pinch each side. (This is very hard to explain without a visual) Just think you are going in a circle folding over the edges 5-6 times until the all the outside folds are pinched in.

Step 6
Spray the pan with butter spray and add the bottom fold to the pan to seal it. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Then flip over and cook the top for 1 minutes. Once done, take off and enjoy!

Edible Oreo Cookie Dough Now Exists, Here’s How You Can Get It

The Cookie Dough Café Oreo Gourmet Edible Cookie Dough! Found at: Mariano’s #thejunkfoodaisle

A post shared by The Junk Food Aisle (@thejunkfoodaisle) on

If you’re a huge fan of Oreos and are the kind of person who’d walk around eating a tub of cookie dough, you’re in luck, because the two are joining together for a brand new product.

The Cookie Dough Cafe, an online wholesaler and producer of tons of decadent safe-to-eat cookie dough flavors, has teamed up with Oreo to create a flavor that’s laced with the chocolate cookie sandwiches that you’ll definitely fall in love with. First reported by Instagram food hunter The Junk Food Aisle, it was later independently confirmed by Thrillist that The Cookie Dough Cafe had launched the product and was getting ready to go national with it.

Currently, you can only purchase jars of the Oreo cookie dough at Mariano’s, a local supermarket in the Chicago area that’s owned by Kroger. The Cookie Dough Cafe, however, will begin selling their new sweet treat via their website on August 23rd. They ship nationwide, so once the cookie dough is available, you’ll be able to get it regardless of whether you live near the Windy City or not.

We’re counting down the days until the 23rd comes so we can snag some of these awesome jars of edible Oreo cookie dough for ourselves.
