We always have a big shindig in our neighborhood and this Patriotic Edible Cookie Dough will be making an appearance alongside these M&M’S® Red, White & Blue Milk Chocolate and Peanut Pantry Jars.
This is THE best edible cookie dough and you can make it a variety of ways
You do not have to use red, white and blue candies. You can use the classic colors, flavored ones like peanut butter or use colors to coordinate with any party.
When I got home, I started to think about what I could make with some of the the M&M’S.
Luckily, I had just been having a craving for something sweet and cookie dough sounded like a great recipe to create.

WHAT IS EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH?
Edible cookie dough is exactly what is sounds like. Edible cookie dough does not contain eggs or any baking elements such as baking powder or baking soda. Therefore, you cannot bake edible cookie dough.
IS IT SAFE TO EAT?
Edible cookie dough does not contain eggs as we know there is risk in eating raw eggs. Some say there can be bacteria in the raw flour that would be harmful to eat it raw. To combat thiswithout, I first went ahead and heat treat the flour, which means I baked the flour before using it.
HOW TO MAKE PATRIOTIC COOKIE DOUGH
First, bake the flour for 5 minutes at 350 degrees.
Then add butter, brown sugar and white sugar into the bowl of your stand mixer or a large mixing bowl.
Beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, followed by salt and flour.
Next, add in M&M’S Red, White and Blue Milk Chocolate Candies
Followed by some chocolate chips and then sprinkles. Mix to combine.
This Patriotic Edible Cookie dough does not contain milk and quite frankly, in my opinion, it doesn’t need any. If you want it a little extra creamy, feel free to add in 1 tablespoon of milk and increase for desired creaminess.
It’s packed full of delicious cookie dough flavor and tons of chocolate and it takes less than 10 minutes to make!

TIPS FOR MAKING EDIBLE COOKIE DOUGH
I suggest folding in the M&M’S Red, White and Blue Milk Chocolate Candies, chocolate chips and sprinkles. I didn’t want the sprinkles to bleed their colors of the M&M’S® pieces to break up too much.
I really love M&M’S Red, White and Blue Milk Chocolate Candies in this Patriotic Edible Cookie Dough. The creamy milk chocolate, coated in colorful candy shells are a fun and festive treat for all your Patriotic celebrations! Perfect for the Fourth of July!
