Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Chocolate chip cookie dough ice creamEvery time I learn a new trick or skill in the kitchen I can get a little obsessed! Now that I know about homemade ice cream my brain is thinking about what flavors I want to try next. This week I tried out chocolate chip cookie dough. I used my cream cheese ice cream recipe as a base and added big chunks of cookie dough. I really love cream cheese ice cream because it is SUPER easy to make and deliciously rich like cheese cake!Cookie dough ice cream recipeChocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, makes about 1/2 quart.

Needed: 8 ounces softened cream cheese, 1 cup whole milk, 3/4 cup sugar, a pinch of salt, 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 2 cups prepared or store-bought* cookie dough.

In a bowl blend together cream cheese, milk, sugar and salt. Sometimes I blend the cream cheese on it's own for a few seconds before this step, this helps to ensure you don't get any lumps. But even if you end up with a few, lumps of cream cheese aren't so bad! Now add in the heavy whipping cream and stir until mixed. Cover and allow to chill until the batter is very cold (2-4 hours or overnight). Then pour batter in your prepared ice cream maker. During the last few minutes of mixing add in the cubed cookie dough.

*Most store-bought cookie dough contains eggs. If you feel uncomfortable about using uncooked eggs then I would recommend making your own cookie dough. Just use your favorite recipe but leave out any eggs. Chill and then cube for the recipe.Homemade ice cream recipeNote- The cute container I used here is from Garnish.

I often like to serve ice cream over warm cookies, brownies or a slice of cake. Duh. But hey, you do what you like. Enjoy! xo. Emma

  • Oh my gosh, you making all this ice cream and sharing it is not going to be a great thing for my diet!

  • Having never found the appeal in cookie dough icecream, I would not normally go for this as a desert…. however I would be willing to give anything a try on one of those delicious looking cookies!! Oh how I wish I had more time (and skill) for baking!

  • I am now hungry.. For cookies!

  • 1- cookie dough ice cream on cookies, genius.
    2- I just figured out how to use the house’s ice cream machine/maker and was looking for recipes. thank you. I think this one just put me on the fast track to nanny of the year.

  • This looks unbelievably delicious! I need to try it

  • This looks divine. I have been meaning to try and make peanut butter and chocolate ice cream- so many options. Could be a dangerous hobby 🙂

  • These food post are always very interresting. Not only because of the recipes but also because they show the fundamental differences between the US and Europe concerning food and cooking. Why would one have a problem with not cooked eggs? I don’t get it.

  • Your killin’ me smalls! This looks amazing!


  • OMG YUM! Heaven

  • I’d love to get into ice cream making! My favourite is having ice cream over a hot dessert! Delicious!

  • Gosh does that look yummy! I am also a huge fan of cream cheese ice cream and gelato, it’s just so rich and delicious!! 😉

  • o my, that looks so delicious! Absolutely love B&J Cookie dough, so i think i’m going to try this one out!

  • This looks SO good, especially as hot as it is here where I live! I can’t wait to try it — it looks like it could be a promising first attempt at making ice cream… Wonderful recipe! 🙂


  • It looks wonderful! I can only imagine how glorious a cookie dough and cheesecakey rich ice cream would be like, but it sounds like a dream! 🙂


  • It looks so yummy!! Thanks for sharing!
    Merrily Merrily,


  • This looks glorious! I could always do with an excuse to make cookie dough, especially without an oven!

  • That is one drool inducing recipe. Love cookie dough ice cream (who doesn’t). Great base ice cream recipe. Can’t wait for more ice cream recipes!

  • No offense but I personally have never seen the appeal in eating raw cookie dough. That being said though, this dessert looks so good, due to the gorgeous baked cookies! They look delicious. I’ll take one of those with some plain cream cheese ice-cream!

  • Yummy! I bought an ice-cream machine this year and have had SO much fun with it! 🙂

  • Yum!!

    I’m the same; when I learn something new in the kitchen, I can get a little obsessed, too. 🙂
    And I love to serve ice cream over pancakes, apple strudel etc. I LOVE ice cream!!

  • Oh, damn. This looks SO good. I bought the Ben and Jerry’s cook book when I went to the factory in Vermont, but I have yet to buy an ice cream maker and it’s just a shame! You’ve given me another good reason to fix that situation!


  • Yum! Sounds delicious. I had a chocolate chip cookie cupcake recently that I can’t forget. ♥
