Kitchen Tips & Tricks For Making Edible Monster Cookie Dough
- The flour in this recipe HAS to be heat treated to at least 160 degrees F. If you skip heat treating the flour, then this dough will be considered unsafe to consume.
- This recipe heat treats the flour in the microwave, but you could also do this in your oven as well. To do so first spread the flour out on a rimmed baking sheet. Then bake it at 350 degrees F for 5 to 6 minutes.
- Make sure the heat-treated flour is completely cooled before adding it to the dough. If you add it when it’s warm it will heat the other ingredients, causing the final texture to be too soft.
- I used creamy peanut butter in this recipe. I wouldn’t suggest using all-natural peanut butter since it has a much runnier consistency.
- Feel free to exchange the M&Ms or chocolate chips for your choice of candy! Reese’s Pieces or even mini Peanut Butter Cups would be a tasty variation!
What’s The Best Way To Store This Edible Cookie Dough?
Store the edible dough in an airtight container in the refrigerator and enjoy it for 4 to 5 days.
Does This Edible Dough Freeze Well?
Yes, it does! To freeze it just place the dough in an airtight container and freeze it for up to 3 months.
When you’re ready to enjoy it just transfer the container of dough to the fridge to allow it to thaw for several hours.
What Makes This Edible Monster Cookie Dough Safe To Eat?
This edible recipe is safe to eat because it omits the eggs and requires the flour to be heat treated before consuming the dough. Both steps prevent the possibility of consuming bacteria that could cause food poisoning.
