If you’re like me, you could easily eat an entire pint of Ben & Jerry’s in 10 minutes flat without putting down your spoon once. But sometimes cravings take over, and cookie dough ice cream might just not be enough. We need the real thing, that warm and gooey cookie dough with the chocolate melting in your mouth. All of this can be yours in three simple steps. Read on to learn about the ice cream upgrade of your dreams.

Step 1: Get your cookie dough ready

Any kind will do. I prefer Nestle Toll House cookie dough, you know, the giant tub you get at Costco. Scoop that deliciousness into the bottom of a bowl or mug, whatever you prefer. I like to put in enough to cover the bottom, and then a little extra for good luck.

Step 2: Microwave the cookie dough

Usually all it takes is about 15 seconds for it to get perfectly gooey, without starting to actually cook. Let’s be real, no one actually likes cookies that are cooked all the way through. As soon as the chocolate is melted, you can take that bad boy outta there.

Step 3: Scoop in your favorite flavor

Honestly, anything Ben & Jerry’s is a favorite of mine. There are just too many to choose from. You can’t go wrong with whatever you pick. Maybe even try one of the new Halo Top flavors if you wanna go for a ~healthy~ vibe (which you probably aren’t if you’re reading this). I used Boom Chocolatta! Cookie Core. I clearly had a cookie craving. Surprisingly, there wasn’t too much cookie going on, though. It was a magical experience.

Finally, I like to mix it all together because I like to have equal bites cookie dough and ice cream, but that’s just me. Eat it all, until you can’t tell there was ever ice cream in that bowl. I don’t really need to tell you to lick the bowl clean. It’s that good, you’re probably already doing it.
