Chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream recipe

This cookie dough ice cream is so perfect for summer. It’s a no-churn recipe and it’s super simple to put together. No-churn ice cream is a lifesaver in the midst of peak summer heat.

Not only is it no-churn but it’s also gluten-free. The edible cookie dough is made with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour. It doesn’t contain eggs and the flour is toasted so it is safe to eat.

The ice cream base is made the same way as my blackberry ice cream. Heavy whipping cream or heavy cream is whipped to stiff peaks then mixed with sweetened condensed milk. I also mixed in some mini chocolate chips.

Once the ice cream is fully assembled, just pop it in the freezer for about 6 hours.

Why this recipe works

  • The cookie dough bits are soft! I used milk in the dough so it remains soft even when frozen.
  • There are no eggs in the dough or the ice cream base.
  • The flour is heat-treated so it is safe to heat and offers a lightly toasted flavor.

Edible cookie dough ice cream ingredients

There are two parts to this recipe. The chocolate chip cookie dough and the ice cream. Let’s go over what you need.

  • Butter: Like with any cookie dough, this one starts with unsalted butter.
  • Sugar: Brown sugar and regular granulated sugar offer the familiar flavor classic chocolate chip cookies.
  • Milk: Milk will help keep the dough soft.
  • Vanilla: A splash of vanilla goes in both the dough and the ice cream base.
  • Salt: A pinch of salt keeps the dough from tasting too sweet.
  • Flour: Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1-to-1 Baking Flour is used so everyone can enjoy the ice cream. Be sure to toast it first!!
  • Chocolate chips: I used mini chocolate chips because they soften quickly after being frozen.
  • Heavy cream: Use heavy cream or heavy whipping cream. Regular whipping cream will not work as well.
  • Sweetened condensed milk: I often use store-bought condensed milk but you can use a homemade version if you prefer.

To make this ice cream you’ll need:

  • Mixing bowls: These bowls are my favorite. I use them regularly.
  • Handheld electric mixer: You need a handheld mixer to whip the cream for the ice cream.
  • Freezer safe container: I usually use a metal loaf pan covered in plastic wrap. But there are reusable ice cream containers available online.

Heat-treated flour

It’s important to heat treat the flour before you use it in a raw recipe. Spreading it on a baking sheet and bake it at 350°F for 10 minutes.

Let it the flour cool completely then sift it to remove any clumps.

How to make cookie dough ice cream

This recipe is simple and straight. There are not a lot of steps involved.

The Cookie Dough – The dough is mixed up in one bowl but needs to freeze for about 15 minutes before using it. This makes it easier to break pieces off to add to the ice cream.

The Ice Cream Base – The base comes together quickly. Just whip heavy cream to stiff peaks then mix in vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and chocolate chips.

Step 1: Make the gluten-free cookie dough

Melt the butter and both sugars in a microwave-safe bowl. It takes about 30-45 seconds in my microwave. I suggest heating in 15-second intervals, stirring after each one until the butter is fully melted.

Melting the butter and sugars will prevent the dough from feeling gritty.

Mix in the milk, vanilla, and salt. Then whisk in the flour. At this point, you’ll want to feel the dough and make sure it isn’t too hot before you add the chocolate chips or they’ll melt.

Once the dough is cool the touch, fold in the chocolate chips.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and freeze for about 15-30 minutes, until the dough is firm enough to handle.

Step 2: Make the no-churn ice cream base

In a large bowl, whip the heavy cream to stiff peaks. Be careful not to over whip or the cream will curdle and possibly turn to butter.

Add the vanilla and slowly add the condensed milk while mixing on low speed. Once all the condensed milk is added whip on medium speed until the mixture is thick.

Use a silicone spatula and gently fold in the chocolate chips. Be careful not to knock too much air out of the whipped cream.

Pinch of small pieces of cookie dough, roll them into balls, and scatter them over the whipped cream. I do this in about 3 additions, gently mixing after each one so the dough pieces don’t stick together.

Step 3: Freeze

Transfer the mixture to a freezer-safe container, cover it tightly, and freeze for at least 6 hours.
