Cookie dough week just wouldn’t be complete without ice cream.  Cookie dough ice cream is one of the boy’s favorite flavors and I have to admit, mine too.  There’s just one thing better than cookie dough ice cream however, Monster Cookie Dough Ice Cream.  And better yet – you don’t even need an ice cream machine for this recipe!

The trick to really excellent cookie dough ice cream is flash freezing the little cookie dough nuggets. It IS an extra step – but totally worth it.  Freezing for 30 minutes or so will keep the cookie dough intact when added to the heavy cream mixture.  I used a melon scoop to create my cookie dough balls but a teaspoon or your fingers would work just fine.

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you how much the boys loved this ice cream.  It was pure torture having to wait for it to set up over night.  The good part? This cookie dough is made without eggs and is totally edible.  Scored some major mom points right there.  I served the ice cream in these adorable waffle cups and sprinkled on even more M&Ms for my chocolate-loving family.

I used about two-thirds of the cookie dough in the ice cream. You can use it all if you want lots of cookie dough in there or you can just put the remaining amount in the fridge and enjoy at your leisure.

This ice cream is PERFECT as is but I say everything is better with a little drizzle of caramel…

I do realize that many of you are still coping with cooler weather but I think this ice cream can truly be enjoyed year round, so give it a try!

  20. As a kid (wait, who am I kidding… I still do this) I always saved the cookie dough chunks for last. I’d eat all the vanilla ice cream, and set aside those sweet little morsels with a spoon. My brother actually did the same thing, and one time he smooshed all of them together to bake a cookie! But I still prefer cookie dough over cookies, and adding in all those mix-ins to your ice cream — YUM!
