Cookies are my all time favorite dessert, that is no secret. Well, my second favorite dessert is frozen yogurt. So when I saw Anna’s recipe for Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt my eyes almost popped out of my head. My two favorite treats combined in one recipe—a dream come true! And the best part? You don’t even need an ice cream maker to make this dreamy frozen yogurt. It is so easy to make! The hardest part is letting it chill in the freezer. I am not patient, especially when desserts are involved. But I promise this Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt is well worth the wait!
Let’s get started! To make it, you will need: butter, dark brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, flour, baking soda, salt, chocolate chips or chunks, and vanilla yogurt.
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the butter and sugars.
Beat until light and fluffy.
Add the vanilla extract and mix until smooth.
In a small mixing bowl, combine flour and baking soda.
Add in the salt.
Whisk all of the dry ingredients together.
Add the chocolate chips and stir.
Add the flour and chocolate chip mixture to the butter mixture and fold gently.
Stir until combined.
Add the yogurt.
Stir until smooth.
Place in a container and cover with a lid. Freeze until set, preferably overnight.
Remove from the freezer and serve.
The frozen yogurt is rich, creamy, and oh so sweet. It tastes just like cookie dough but in frozen form. I love how simple it is to make. I am going to have to keep our freezer stocked with this frozen yogurt! It is the perfect cool-down treat for a hot summer day.
