RECIPE: Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops
I know what you’re thinking, “What are Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops? I can see them in your picture!” Ha ha! I know, I know, I’ll tell you in a minute what makes these cookie dough ice pops invisible, but first, let’s reminisce briefly on the topic of that sinfully delicious dessert called COOKIE DOUGH!
Cookie dough. What can I say about it that hasn’t already been said?
It’s the perfect food; it has the perfect blend of sugar and chocolate that makes it absolutely addicting. In fact, it’s so addicting people love to sneak a bite of it when the baker isn’t looking. Or, at least, they think the baker isn’t looking. But us bakers know. Ha!
Yes, I’m talking about YOU!
And me, actually!
We’ve all done it! We can’t help it; cookie dough is “yummy”, as my daughter tells me.
But to some, it’s referred to as the “forbidden” food. I’m sure you heard it when you were a kid, “You’re not supposed to eat cookie dough. It has raw eggs in it!”
Lindsay Landis, author of The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook, is here to tell you that you can get your cookie dough fix and never have to worry about raw eggs again.
See, here’s her gorgeous cookbook!
The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook is 166 pages of the most extensive cookie dough recipes I’ve ever seen.

What I Love Most
It’s hard to limit my loves for this cookbook to the list below, but these are my absolute true loves.
- Photos – Every single recipe includes a photo!!! If you’ve looked at a few cookbooks in your lifetime, you’ll quickly find that 99% of them never include enough photos. Lindsay took the painstaking effort (I know first-hand) to take gorgeous photos that truly represent her fabulously creative cookie dough recipes. As an overly visual person, I truly appreciate her photos. Without them, I’d be lost. Now I can duplicate her recipes as they should be! Thank you, Lindsay!
- Conversion Tables – Lindsay was considerate enough to include a cheat sheet on the inside cover that includes conversions for measurements, equivalences and temperatures. Need this. Fabulous!
- Tips and Suggestions – Whether it’s how to line a pan with parchment paper, where to find specialty candies or how to get your sugar vanilla-scented, Lindsay has included numerous tips and suggestions for getting the best results for each and every recipe. Yay!
There’s so much more included in The Cookie Dough Lover’s Cookbook that I’d love to share with you, but I seriously recommend getting yourself a copy so you can see (and bake!) these first-hand. Every recipe is truly a unique spin on the classic cookie dough recipe. And for that, I thank you again, Lindsay. A job WELL DONE!
Speaking of recipes, Lindsay was kind enough to let me share with you her Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pop recipe from this cookbook. It’s called “invisible” because it’s not a true cookie dough recipe. Instead, it has the perfect blend of ingredients that tastes just like cookie dough. Now you know how the recipe got its name!
And finally, the Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pop recipe!
As always, ENJOY!

Invisible Cookie Dough Ice Pops
1-1/4 cups milk (skim, 2% or whole, your choice)
1/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons mini semisweet chocolate chips
In a microwave-safe container or glass measuring cup, microwave milk for 30 seconds or until warm to the touch. Add brown sugar and salt and stir until dissolved. Add vanilla.
Place 1/2 tablespoon chocolate chips in the bottom of each ice-pop mold or in small paper cups. Top with milk mixture. Insert sticks and place molds in freezer. Freeze until solid, at least 3 hours.
To release pops, run mold under warm water for 20 to 30 seconds; they should slide right out. (If using paper cups, simply peel cups away and discard.)
