Deep Fried Cookie Dough made with homemade chocolate chip cookie dough, dipped in batter, and fried to golden crispy perfection!

You might as well call these deep fried balls of HEAVEN. They are pure decadence in the best possible way and I’m so excited to share these with you.

Jared and I tackled this recipe together, actually, because deep frying while filming is a balancing act I’d rather not juggle alone. Seeing my expensive camera anywhere near 360°F oil makes my heart skip a beat! It was a fun recipe to conquer together, and we certainly enjoyed the fruits of our labor. These deep fried cookie dough balls certainly make a bit of a mess but they are so completely worth it!

Here’s some extra help and advice in case you think you’ll need it. I’ve tried to answer every possible question so you can be wildly successful when you go to make these babies in your own kitchen. As always, feel free to ask any other questions in the comments below!

I prefer homemade to store-bought any day of the week, and the cookie dough in this recipe is no exception! If you really wanted to, you could use store-bought cookie dough and proceed with the batter and frying. However, if you are worried about the possibility of consuming undercooked eggs, then I recommend you use pasteurized eggs. The cookie dough in this recipe does not fully cook through. If you can’t find pasteurized eggs, you can omit the egg and replace it with 3 tablespoons of milk. The texture won’t be exactly the same, but I understand it’s a must for some people.

The Batter

Use the batter to fry the cookie dough soon after making it. The batter may look really thin, but I promise it will puff up and offer a nice light yet crispy coating once it’s fried.


I used vegetable oil, but any mild oil with a high smoking point will do. I always use a deep fry thermometer to track the temperature of the oil, both for safety and for the best possible taste and texture. Oil that’s too cold will yield a greasy product. Oil that’s too hot will overcook and burn the outside. Bits of batter getting stuck in your oil is pretty much inevitable, so I like to use my mesh skimmer to remove any larger pieces of batter or debris from the oil as I fry.

We randomly discovered that one of my chocolate dipping tools worked beautifully for picking up the batter-coated cookie dough and placing it in the hot oil. When we used our hands not only did our fingers pull away the batter, but it’s just not safe to place your hand that close to the oil (even if you see pro chefs do it all the time). Deep frying is already dangerous, no need to risk unnecessary oil burns! We always keep our fire extinguisher out when we deep fry.

Make Ahead

The balls of cookie dough can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 days before frying. Unfortunately, once these babies are fried they need to be served soon after. They’re not the kind of treat that will stay good for days on end. However, you can keep them warm in a 175°F oven until ready to garnish and serve.
