Cookie Dough Blizzard

Cookie Dough Blizzard recipe!

Let’s hear it!

Who has big plans this weekend?

It’s Father’s Day and my husband has a busy weekend planned for us. We’re fishing in the morning and then grilling out in the afternoon.

My daughter has big plans to put a lemonade stand in the back yard, so she can hit up all the golfers on Saturday. We’re thinking it will be a busy weekend for golfing and she’s hoping to make some bank. She’s quite the little entrepreneur!

We’ll also be doing lots of celebrating with ice cream. It is summer, after all.

I’ve lived in this town for about 15 years now and there is a super popular ice cream joint that everyone just loves. It’s never been my favorite, but only because it’s kind of run down and always super busy. I’d much prefer to drive one town over and hit up the ice cream shop from my own childhood. That’s all changed now, though.

This popular ice cream shop makes the most epic cookie dough blizzards. I had no idea what to expect when I ordered one a few weeks ago. The below photo is what I got:

Yep. That happened.

Needless to say, we’ve been going back almost daily.

The cookie dough blizzard is a new family favorite and my husband is especially fond of it. I thought I’d surprise him with a homemade version of his favorite new treat for Father’s Day and I think I succeeded quite nicely.

I whipped up a normal cookie dough for this. Yes, it totally contains eggs. Before you freak out though, I’m using Davidson’s Safest Choice Eggs. They’re pasteurized, so there’s no risk of salmonella. They’re totally safe to consume raw!

I love using real cookie dough, because for one thing, it just tastes better. For another thing, if there is any left over, I can just pop it in the oven and we’ll have cookies!

The key to making this cookie dough blizzard is to just pile a ton of extra dough on top. Do not hold back. Really load it up! I mean, personally I don’t even eat the ice cream. I eat my cookie dough off the top and then hand the ice cream over to the kids. It’s just more acceptable to eat straight cookie dough when it’s piled inside a cup of ice cream, ya know?

Big thanks to Davidson’s Safest Choice for sponsoring this post!
