Soft and chewy edible cookie dough is given a crispy coating when deep-fried and topped with powdered sugar.


For the Cookie Dough:

  • 1 ¼ cups (175g) all-purpose flour, heat treated
  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, softened
  • ½ cup (95g) granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup (73g) light brown sugar, packed
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons (45ml) milk
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) vanilla extract
  • ½ cup (90g) mini chocolate chip

For the Batter:

  • 34 C Vegetable oil for frying
  • 3 C Crushed Corn Flakes
  • 1 Large egg
  • 1 C Water
  • 2 C Dry pancake mix
  • 23 tbsp Powered sugar
  • Additional powdered sugar for dusting


For the Cookie Dough:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake the flour on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper for approximately 10 minutes, or until the temperature of the flour reaches 160°F. Stir the flour halfway through and allow it to cool completely. Sift the flour through a fine mesh sieve.
  2. Soften the butter in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until creamy.
  3. Add the heat-treated flour, salt, vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon of milk. Beat together until the dough starts to form. Add additional milk as needed until the dough reaches your desired consistency. Mix in the chocolate chips.
  4. Roll dough into balls, about 1 1/2 tablespoons for each. Set aside.

For the Batter:

  1. Preheat oil to 365°.
  2. Use a food processor to crush Corn Flakes into small pieces. Set aside in a medium-sized bowl.
  3. In a separate medium-sized bowl, beat the egg with a fork. Add water.
  4. Add 1 cup of dry pancake mix and powdered sugar and whisk together until smooth.
  5. In a third bowl, place the remaining dry pancake mix.

For Assembly:

  1. Roll dough in dry pancake mix, then dip into the wet batter, and lastly, roll in Corn Flake crumbs.
  2. Place dough ball in the oil and fry for one minute and 30 seconds.
  3. Remove from the deep fryer and tap off excess oil and place on a paper towel to dry the dough ball and absorb the remaining oil. Allow them to cool for several minutes before eating.
  4. Sprinkle with powdered sugar or drizzle with chocolate syrup.
