Do You Need To Heat-Treat the Flour?

Heat-treating is process of heating flour to kill the bacterias. This process is typically done when making edible cookie dough. Because our recipe does not call for any raw eggs, we did not heat treat the flour. However, you can take this extra step for safe measures. Heat-treating flour in the microwave is the easiest method.

How to heat-treat flour in the microwave:

1 — Place the flour in a microwave safe bowl and heat for 30 second intervals.

2 — Stir with a spatula in between. Make sure none of the ingredients have harden or burnt. This can quickly happen with flour. Make sure the flour has reached 165°F throughout.

How to Make Frozen Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Sundaes

1 — In a large bowl, cream together your softened butter and brown sugar. Aim for a light and fluffy texture by beating for about 2 minutes with an electric mixer (or good old-fashioned arm power!).

2 — When fully blended, thoroughly mix in the vanilla extract, water, flour and chocolate chips.

At this point, it might look crumbly. If this is the case, mix and mold the dough mixture with your hands to make it less crumbly. If it still doesn’t gel together, add a little bit of water.

3 — Stuff the mixture in a squared ice cube tray. And then, freeze for at least 2 hours or until completely solid.

4 — Take out your frozen cookie dough bites. Drizzle your Smucker’s Chocolate Magic Shell over the entire sundae. Watch as it hardens into a decadent chocolate coating, a delightful textural contrast to the creamy ice cream and chewy cookie dough.

5 — Top with whipped cream and cherries!

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • If your brown sugar is clumpy, break it up with a fork before creaming it with the butter. This will help it incorporate smoothly.
  • Avoid overmixing! Overworking the dough can make the cookie dough tough when frozen. Mix until there are no streaks of flour remaining.
  • Want to get extra fancy? Add chopped nuts, sprinkles, or a drizzle of caramel sauce for an over-the-top sundae experience!
  • Instead of using an ice tray, you can also mold your sundae into a ball with an ice cream scooper or your hands.
