It’s super easy to make these little balls of fried bliss. You just mix together the cookie dough and freeze it in balls while you prep the batter and oil. Then it’s fry time…

Once I fried and tasted my first one, I had to keep telling myself “just keep calm and fry on”! 😉 Mmmm-AZING!!

Fried chocolate chip cookie dough for the ultimate indulgent dessert!
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 16
  • Dough:
  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • ⅓ cup light brown sugar
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • Batter:
  • 1 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour, for dipping
  • 4-5 cups vegetable oil, for frying
  • powdered sugar, for dusting
  1. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Cookie Dough: In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the vanilla and milk and beat until well combined. Stir in the flour until just combined and then the chocolate chips until distributed throughout the dough. Scoop two-teaspoon sized balls of dough onto the parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for 20 minutes while you prepare the batter and heat the oil.
  3. For the batter, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the milk, oil and vanilla. Add to the dry ingredients and whisk until thin and smooth.
  4. Heat the oil in a large frying pan to 375°F.
  5. Remove the cookie dough from the freezer and shape into smooth round balls with your hands. Place ½ cup flour in a small bowl. Roll each ball of cookie dough in the flour and then dip in the batter, using a fork to roll it around in the batter and transfer it to the hot oil for frying. Fry each ball of dough for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown all around and crisp on the outside. Remove to a paper towel and dust with powdered sugar before serving. Best served immediately.

    I had some problems. I dipped the ball
    Into the flour than the batter. I had to force the batter to stick to the ball and as they were frying all of the cookie dough came out and became a huge mess in the frying pan.

      Hi Teri! Did you coat the cookie dough ball completely in flour? Was the batter thick or thin when you dipped the ball in it? If for some reason your batter was too thick, it would have a harder time sticking. Did you follow the ingredients exactly? Would love to help troubleshoot what went wrong.

    Hey I was wondering if I could use any chocolate chip cookie recipe? Or does it have to be this one?? Thanks!

      Hi Charlotte! I’ve only tried it with this cookie dough recipe, but I think any eggless cookie dough recipe that’s thick enough to hold it’s ball shape when frozen should work. Enjoy!
