Chocolate chip cookies are the bread and butter of the dessert world.
They may not be as exciting as an elaborate chocolate cake or a batch of these caramel pretzel brownies, but everyone likes them, and they get the job done!
Chocolate chip cookie dough, on the other hand, is in a league all of its own. No matter what recipes you make out of it, nothing is quite like eating cookie dough raw just for the gooey, chewy, illicit thrill of it.
We all know it’s not good for us, but who among us can truthfully say that they’ve never come home from a bad day and cracked open a roll of Toll House? I know I’m not the only one.
That’s why we’re constantly innovating to find treats that are just as delicious as cookie dough, but without the raw-egg risks, up to and including the ever-popular cookie dough ice cream.
But with all due respect to Ben and Jerry, we think we might have discovered the cookie dough dessert to rule them all. Humbly, we present the deep-fried cookie dough ball.
