We love cookie dough in any shape or form. Here’s a cookie dough frosting recipe you can use to top virtually any kind of cake or cookie or, better yet, eat it by the spoonful. :-)
Cookie Dough Frosting Recipe
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt
4 Tbsp milk*
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Mix all of the ingredients well in the order listed. Add milk gradually until it makes the consistency you want. Then fold in the chocolate chips. This recipe frosts about 12 cupcakes.
*Add less milk and you can use it as a dip for cookies, cake or graham crackers.

May I suggest editing the recipe to read: Mix first five ingredients. Add milk a bit at a time to desired consistency. Then add chocolate chips.” Otherwise inexperienced cooks may end up with a mess.
I know this from experience. Although I was a good cook, when my mom told me to pour all of the ingredients for cheese cake in the bowl and mix like crazy, I did exactly that. It looked curdled because I haven’t creamed the sugar with the cheese before adding the eggs and sour cream. The guests ate it all gone, but I would have been happier with more explicit directions.
That is why I said to mix in order and not mix all ingredients together.
We LOVE this recipe! When we crave something sweet, we break out the mixer and mix up a batch. Favorite items to cover are Nilla wafers, graham crackers and this icing is really good on brownies. For a different twist, sometimes I leave out the butter and substitute the same amount of creamy peanut butter. Mmmmm
Adding peanut butter really sounds yummy Brenda. Thanks for the suggestion.
