Godiva Cookie Dough Recipe

This recipe offers you all of the decadent flavors of Godiva and traditional chocolate chip cookies.

  • Author: Anna
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hr 10 mins
  • Category: dessert

Ingredients

Scale
  • 7 ounces GODIVA Large 72% Dark Chocolate Bars
  • 1 ½ sticks butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup + 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 ½ cups heat-treated all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons milk

Instructions

Heat-Treating Flour

  1. Before you begin making your edible Godiva cookie dough, it is vital that you heat-treat your flour. To do so, consider warming your flour in a microwave-safe bowl at 30-second intervals until the flour reaches 165 degrees Fahrenheit (use a food thermometer to check, or look for steam).
  2. Allow the flour to cool completely before using.
  3. No microwave? No problem! If you want to use your oven to heat-treat your flour instead, simply spread the flour in a thin layer on a lined baking sheet and pop it into a preheated oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 7-10 minutes. Remove the flour from the oven and allow the cookie dough to cool off before proceeding with the next steps. Be careful not to burn your flour when heat-treating it this way!
  • Using a knife, chop up your Godiva chocolate bar into small chunks. Then, set it aside (away from heat).
  • Mix your butter and sugars, along with your vanilla and a dash of cinnamon.
  • To this mixture, add your flour and salt. Use a hand mixer if desired to get all of the ingredients fully combined.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of milk until the dough pulls together. 
  • Portion the dough into bite-sized balls and line them on a prepared baking sheet.
  • Chill or freeze the Godiva cookie dough balls for at least one hour before eating. You can also enjoy them at room temperature!
