Edible Cookie Dough + Chocolate Chunks/Sauce (Vegan, Gluten Free)


I’m not sure I’ve ever met a person who didn’t like cookie dough. There are plenty of recipes for edible cookie dough (no eggs, basically.) But most don’t fit my dietary preferences. Also, I have a ridiculous time trying to find chocolate chips that are dairy free, processed sugar free, and soy free. As usual, I had to get a little creative. 
The chocolate chunks are made from a sauce I created to use to dip fruit, ice no-bake cookies, and as a chocolate “shell” for ice cream. If you want it to remain a sauce leave it at room temp until you need it or reheat if you keep it in the fridge. As chocolate chunks, spread the sauce out on wax paper, and pop in the freezer for about 15 mins. The base is coconut oil, which hardens quickly in the cold. **You must use organic, UNREFINED coconut oil. I’ve tried other “organic” coconut oil and it never hardned properly. I get mine from Aldi and that’s the only type I can personally vouch for. 
The dough base is really simple and only requires a few ingredients. Once the chocolate chunks are mixed in, it’s best to keep refrigerated so the chocolate doesn’t melt. This recipe is vegan, gluten free, soy free, corn free, and processed sugar free.
