No-Churn Cake Batter Cookie Dough Ice Cream

This super easy No-Churn Cake Batter Cookie Dough Ice Cream is the best of both worlds: creamy cake batter ice cream and cookie dough!

I don’t know about you but I just could just eat ice cream forever and ever. There are so many amazing flavors, it’s hard to pick just one (although Mint Chip will always be closest to my heart). Since I have been making homemade ice cream, I can create flavors like this No-Churn Cake Batter Cookie Dough Ice Cream.

When I first heard of Cold Stone, I was in complete awe over the fact that you could create your own ice cream flavor! Granted I did live in the home state of Ben and Jerry’s, we didn’t have access to such places like Cold Stone.

I always wanted to be a fan of cake batter ice cream, but in most cases, the flavors were far too sweet for me. So I decided that I needed to create my own cake batter ice cream at home. I like this ice cream because it isn’t overly sweet!

Better yet, I added cookie dough, because who doesn’t love cookie dough? I must say that this recipe is LOADED with cookie dough.

This ice cream base is a “no-churn” recipe, meaning that it doesn’t require an ice cream maker! You simply mix together the base ingredients (sweetened condensed milk and Cool Whip), and then add in your cookie dough and freeze. Easy-peasy. I find that homemade ice cream keeps a lot better if you have a good container! This is my favorite Ice Cream Storage container. I bought mine from William Sonoma, but you can find it elsewhere too!

The cookie dough isn’t your average cookie dough, it is also cake batter flavored! It is the same recipe I used for my Deep Fried Cake Batter Cookie Dough Bites and these cookie dough bars. All it takes it a little bit of DRY cake mix added to the batter, some sprinkles and butter extract if you have it. As if cookie dough wasn’t good enough on it’s own, try resisting this cake batter cookie dough!

This ice cream will need additional time to freeze since it isn’t churned, I suggest 4-8 hours. The longer you freeze it, the better in my opinion. However, I also take it out of the freezer at least 15 minutes before serving so that it will soften slightly before I scoop it! It’s a bit dangerous because I tend to just eat it straight from the container with a spoon! Enjoy!

A no-churn cake batter ice cream with cake batter cookie dough. So easy and delicious!


For the ice cream

  • 1 Jar (14 oz) Sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/2 C Yellow cake mix (dry)
  • 1 tube (8oz) Cool Whip

For the cookie dough

  • 1/2 C Unsalted butter (1 stick1), softened

  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Butter extract (optional)
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 C Mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 C Sprinkles


For the cookie dough

  1. Allow butter to come to room temperature or microwave for 10-15 seconds.
  2. Combine butter and both sugars in a medium-sized bowl. Mix with a handheld mixer until smooth. All chunks of sugar and butter should be broken up.
  3. Add flour, dry cake mix and salt. Mix just until combined. Mixture will be crumbly.
  4. Add vanilla and butter extract and milk. Mix until dough is soft. Add chocolate chips and sprinkles last.
  5. Roll dough into balls, about 1 teaspoon for each. Set aside.

  1. Combine sweetened condensed milk and dry vanilla cake mix. Stir until cake mix is incorporated into the condensed milk.
  2. Add Cool Whip and mix until well combined.
  3. Gently fold cookie dough bites into ice cream batter. You can also alternate layers of the ice cream base with layers of cookie dough in your freezer container.
  4. Freeze until desired consistency, suggested 4-8 hours.

    Cake batter cookie dough sounds like stuff dreams are made from. Loaded with butter, sugar, sprinkles, and magic. If I could marry this ice cream, I certainly would.

    Obsessed with Cold Stone. Good thing there isn’t one around here! Two hour drive separates me from the heaven. But now I can make this at home. My hips thank you 🙂

    bahaha! I don’t know why but your little fun fact about living in the home state of ben and jerrys cracked me up! I just imagine you all alone with no options other than Cherry Garcia….which wouldn’t necessarily be all that horrible come to think of it.

    ANYWAYS your ice cream looks awesome. mmm cake batter frozen. pinned.
