If you’ve ever been one to not eat the raw cookie dough because of the pending risk of raw eggs making you sick … yet longed for the sweet, sugary, and crunch of the cold chocolate chips that raw cookie dough brings to your tastebuds and tongue, you’re in luck. This cookie dough recipe is fantastic. Just absolutely fantastic, with no raw eggs.

And, I must say too that, much like fudge, one piece goes a long ways. An 8×8 dish lasted awhile around here because even a half by half inch piece was so amazing and rich that you only need a couple pieces to last you awhile, so rest assured, you’ll have plenty to enjoy.

In fact, out of an eight inch by eight inch dish you really could make about 60-70 bite size pieces. Don’t miss this dessert – it will be the talk of your night.

Gather your ingredients:

  • ½ c. (1 stick) butter, softened (salted or unsalted is fine)
    ¾ c. packed light brown sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla extract
    2 c. all purpose flour
    1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
    1 c. chocolate chips
    1/2 cup mini m&m’s
    ½ cup creamy peanut butter
    ½ cup milk chocolate chips



And, here’s how you whip this amazing dessert up:

Line an 8×8 inch pan or dish with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the softened butter and brown sugar until fluffy for about 2-3 minutes. Next, add your vanilla until combined with the sugar mixture. Alternate your flour and sweetened condensed milk until combined.

Cover your bars with foil and refrigerate for 3 hours or until firm. If you’re in a hurry you can use the freezer. Next, flip the cookie dough over into the pan, taking it off of the parchment paper.

Once cookie dough has set up and hardened, you’re ready to make your topping. Combine the peanut butter and ½ cup chocolate chips in a microwave safe bowl, stirring every 30 seconds until smooth. Pour and spread over the top of the chilled dough and chill again at least for 1 hour until firm in the refrigerator or freezer.

    Hi this looks delicious but how would I do it without peanut butter? We have an allergy in the house? 😦

  2. Heather says

    Do these need to be refrigerated to hold up? We go to the lake every weekend & I’d like to take these but I’m afraid they’ll turn gooey.

  3. Vanessa says

    They look amazing!! I can’t wait to make them with my boys this weekend! Thank you for sharing!

    • Kate Sorensen says

      Hi Marie,

      You can definitely leave the peanut butter out, and yes, they would likely become too messy if not refrigerated.

    • Heather says

      Yes, GF flour will work in this recipe. The GF flour I used was a bit gritty, so the texture wasn’t as smooth, but it didn’t stop me from eating them. 🙂

    Instead of making bars I scooped the dough out with my cookie scooper onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. After they were chilled I dipped them in melted chocolate. I haven’t tasted the finished product yet but I’m so excited to!

    It is a misperception that raw egg is the problem with raw cookie dough. It is the flour. It’s back in the news again with the General Mills recall. This recipe is not safe.

    • Julie says

      As a Quality Assurance Food Safety Manager/Coordinator, I have to partially agree with Susan.
      Eating raw dough of any kind is not recommended!
      Why anyone would want to take a chance with theirs or their family or friends lives is beyond me.
      Whether it’s raw eggs, or raw dry ingredients, it is not safe to assume they will not make you sick.

        I’ve read and listened to all the hoopla about raw eggs and flour. I have to laugh loudly! My kids played outside and then ate without washing their hands. Played in mud puddles. Ate Sunday lunch leftovers for dinner after sitting out on the stove all day long. Germs and building antibodies are good for us. That’s why kids nowadays are sick all the time. Throw away all that chemical based hand cleaner and let them get dirty. This recipe sounds just fine to me. Not as good as regular old raw dough but okay anyway. I will give it a try after I make a good old batch of homemade ice cream with raw eggs.

        • Debbie says

          Thanks Pam!!! You hit the nail on the head. Just stop picking about the food and enjoy eating again. Children now a days are so spoiled and fussed over no wonder they can hardly eat anything.

        • Jade says

          Seriously…I grew up eating raw cookie dough. Every time I make cookies now I eat a good amount of the cookie dough raw! Never once have I gotten so much as an upset stomach. I think I will continue eating it as I wish and when I have kids I’ll let them do the same! People are so over protective these days.

      • Heather M says

        Any “raw” is bad….but so are things like M&M’s what people dont understand is things like Listeria are EVERYWHERE!! My husband’s work as it, Hershey’s has it, etc etc it just has to be kept at a safe limit. I mean you have E- coli in your bathroom, everywhere, and you dont get sick but you will if you eat a turd. You are at the mercy of the companies you buy from because it is on them to keep up with the disinfecting, testing and if any recalls.

        I feel testing should be mandatory…you hear every year about strawberries, oranges, spinach, etc etc being recalled like a MONTH after they were sold and most likely eaten why? Because the company doesnt test often enough. My husband’s work has had 1 or 2 recalls since he has been working there that the product didnt even leave the coolers at his facility! Then there is Dole who knew for a year and a half about their dangerous listeria count and didnt do anything!!! We need to be harder on these companies when it comes to testing, cleaning up and then proving that they did so with a clean testing before continuing production.

        If we have to be scared of flour, nuts, sugar, peanut butter, ice cream etc etc because of the risk of a contamination then what are we suppose to eat?
