Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough

Posted on

Disclaimer: These may clog your arteries, or indeed kill you. But it would be a rather tasty death, if that is any consolation.

Cookie dough is apparently one of the many things they like to fry at some state fairs around the country. I didn’t notice a ton of deep fried things at the Utah state fair, but maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough. I’ve heard tell that someone deep fried beer. But I digress.

These were tasty, but a touch too sugary for me. I’m glad I didn’t put the chocolate syrup on them. Don’t get me wrong though, they are really tasty.

Gooey insides.

I also deep fried a Thin Mint because K happened to bring them. I would have deep fried some Twix too, but I discovered that I had already eaten them. You can deep fry pretty much anything your heart desires with this batter. So feel free to experiment.

The other nice thing about this recipe is it doesn’t have any eggs, and it doesn’t make a lot of dough. So if you get the hankering (yes I just used that word) for cookie dough, you can eat this guilt free. (Free of the guilt that you are putting yourself at risk of salmonella that is.)

Deep Fried Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (from taylor takes a taste.)
Makes 12 servings


4 tbsp softened butter
1/4 cup light brown sugar
3 tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup  flour

1/4 cup chocolate chips
1-2 tbsp water
corn starch for rolling dough in

In a large mixing bowl, cream together light brown sugar, sugar and butter. While mixing, add vanilla and 1 tbsp of oil, followed by slowly adding the 1/2 cup flour. Add salt, followed by second tbsp of oil. The dough may be dry and crumbly. While mixing, slowly add enough water to give the dough a moist but not overly wet consistency. Mix in chocolate chips.

Remove from mixer and roll dough between your palms into ping pong size balls. Roll in corn starch, shake to remove excess flour.

1 Egg
1 cup Ice Cold Water
1 cup Self Rising flour
2 tbsp Confectioners Sugar

With a fork, mix together egg and water. Add flour and sugar to egg and water mix. Dip cookie dough balls in batter, make sure that the dough is completely covered in batter so that they won’t leak out dough when frying. Using a slotted spoon or mesh spider quickly place 3-4 at a time in 375 F oil for 1 and a half to 2 minutes minutes until golden brown on the outside.  Serve in paper trays and top with chocolate sauce and powdered sugar.

  1. So glad you enjoyed my deep fried cookie dough! I tried deep fried beer at the Texas State Fair. It was really gross, so you aren’t missing anything!

  2. If you think that’s bad, have a look at what’s frying at the legendary Texas State Fair, first held in 1886,
    and where the corn dog was invented in 1942. They dip Honey Buns in batter and deep fry them, then top with a light dusting of powdered sugar to serve…

    Chicken fried bacon (?!?!?) is thick sliced peppered bacon dipped in batter and breading and deep-fried, served with ranch or honey mustard sauce; the fried banana split combines bananas and honey peanut butter rolled into balls, which are then battered, deep-fried, and served with a selection of toppings; the fried grilled cheese is filled with both American and cheddar cheeses, then is dipped in batter and bread crumbs, and deep-fried. These are served with potato sticks, pickle spears, and tomato soup dipping sauce (now that’s inspiration!). Texas Fried Jelly Belly Beans; deep-fried s’mores; Fire & Ice is a deep-fried battered pineapple ring topped with banana-flavored whipped cream that’s been frozen with liquid nitrogen and topped with strawberries and syrup; fried chocolate truffles; chocolate-covered strawberry waffle balls; the Fried Pop Rocks Fundae Blast; fried dinner roll; fried cake on a stick; green bean fries; Texas Bar-B-Que Eggrolls; jalapeno deep-fried gorditas; Fried Apple iPie (topped with an edible mp3 player); fried snowballs; fried honey buns; deepfried apple bites; bread pudding with rum sauce; Mini Chopped BBQ Slider; Mini Chicken Fried Steak Slider; Dessert Shooters; Jalapeno Tamarittos; Ignited Moon Pie…
