A baker has created a recipe for cookie dough balls that taste exactly like Ben and Jerry’s best-selling ice cream.
It’s the latest recipe from social media sensation Eloise Head, a London baker who became ‘Instagram famous’ during the first lockdown by sharing photos of her handiwork on food blog, FitWaffle Kitchen.
Made from simple supermarket ingredients and without eggs, the treats are a ‘copycat’ of Ben and Jerry’s new ‘snackable cookie dough’.
The bite-sized chunks – which are essentially the pieces of dough that run through the iconic ice cream, without the ice cream – launched in Australian Ben and Jerry’s kiosks earlier this year.
But those without an outlet nearby can make their own instead with Ms Head’s ingeniously simple recipe.

To make them, Ms Head mixes 55 grams of butter with 50 grams of light brown sugar and 75 grams of granulated sugar.
She stirs in a tablespoon of milk and half a teaspoon of vanilla extract before sifting in a pinch of salt and 75 grams of plain heat treated flour.
Flour can be heat treated by microwaving it on a high heat for 90 seconds or spreading it on a tray and baking in the oven at 160 degrees Celsius for five minutes.
Ms Head mixes in 70 grams of chocolate chips before freezing the mixture for one hour – it’s that simple.
The quantities in the recipe are enough to make 60 bite-sized cookie dough chunks
Photos and videos of the cookie dough, which have racked up almost 35,000 ‘likes’ since they were uploaded online on March 5, have set mouths watering around the world.
‘Oh my god will be trying this later,’ one viewer wrote.
Another said the recipe could easily be tailored to be vegan by swapping butter and milk for plant-based alternatives.
