Deep Fried Cookie Dough

Deep Fried Cookie Dough
Deep Fried Cookie Dough is a mouthwatering dessert that’s crispy on the outside, but soft and melty on the inside, with intense cookie dough flavors. One of the best treats you’ll ever eat!

It’s battered cookie dough bites fried to a fluffy, golden perfection for a sweet treat that melts in your mouth. This recipe is inspired by the Texas State Fair, where is has appeared several years according to reports.
But the question remains on how to make it at home, since we wouldn’t want to limit our intake to once per year! This dessert is so yummy for Cheat Days, midnight snacks, spring break. Heck, we’ve even made it on Mother’s Day.
See when you pull apart these balls, they are full of melty chocolately goodness that nobody can resist!

We like to serve them warm on a platter stacked in two layers. You can also give them a dusting of powdered sugar and drizzle with chocolate sauce.
This is one of the easier deep fried recipes out there. Simply start with your favorite cookie dough batter, either homemade or store bought. We used chocolate chip here, but it works for oreo or peanut butter dough too.
Then use a scoop to make about 24 cookie dough balls about 1 1/2 inches in size:

The final step before deep frying is dipping each ball into a batter that is similar to pancake batter. Some people have asked if raw eggs are an issue, but the balls get fully heated in the deep fryer so no worries.
