Cookie Dough Pops

What have I done?
Does a person need to be munching on frozen cookie dough right before the holidays hit?
When turkey and dressing and cakes and pies inundate our lives?
What possessed me to place butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer and send it whirling away?

To add Greek yogurt and vanilla extract?

Why did I add flour, baking soda, and salt?

How did those semi-sweet chocolate chips get in there?

What’s with the popsicle sticks?

And why—why in the name of George Washington’s baloony trousers—did I dip them in dark chocolate?!

We may never know.

Cookie Dough Pops
Recipe adapted from “Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls” by Joy the Baker
Printable Recipe

1 stick unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup Greek yogurt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoons salt
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips, melted for dipping

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, blend the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about three minutes. Add the yogurt and vanilla, blending to combine.
Whisk or sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the wet mixture and stir together. Toss in the chocolate chips and gently stir.
On a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper, drop spoonfuls of batter and then freeze for a few hours or overnight.
To dip in chocolate, melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler or in the microwave. Remove pops from the freezer and quickly dip in the melted chocolate. Return to the lined cookie sheet and freeze for the chocolate to harden.
Serve cold from the freezer.


  1. Out of curiosity, why did you ad baking soda to a recipe you fully intend to never bake?

  2. Good question! It's just for that authentic cookie dough taste. :D

  3. OH MY! This is a dream come true!!! What HAVE you done?! My brother-in-law will die when I serve these! No matter the occasion, his number one request is for frozen cookie dough balls that he can eat right out of the freezer. Great post!

  4. I'm hungry just looking at the photos.....not good for me. Fun post, Koci!

  5. Lord have mercy! Is this part of a conspiracy to get me to gain a ridiculous amount of weight this season???

  6. I love this post, Koci! it's so fun, light and a bit...mysterious? Your posts are always a delight. I love the George Washington baloony trousers!

  7. Oh, wow! I can barely handle how delicious these look. This is genius! Anything with cookie dough and I'm all over it. Put it on a stick and dipping it in chocolate? Forget about it! I'm saving the recipe.

  8. Oh yes. This is definitely going to get made over the holidays. Frozen cookie dough pops will be perfect for our summer days!

  9. Oh my goodness, thank you! You've discovered a way for me to completely legitimize my chronic cookie-dough habit :]
