Instead of heating up the kitchen, and the rest of the house, by turning on the oven Yeh’s Monster Cookie Dough uses the microwave. Heating up a small amount of flour in the microwave is the only cooking element to this recipe. 

“The only cooking that’s actually required in this is heating up the flour,” Yeh said on Girl Meets Farm as she prepared the no-bake dessert. She microwaved the flour for approximately 90 seconds to “make sure there are no germs living inside of it.” 

The rest of the recipe involves combining ingredients in a bowl and, voila, the Monster Cookie Dough is ready. Yeh used a standing mixer on Girl Meets Farm to make the process that much easier but it can also be done at home with a wooden spoon or a hand mixer. According to Food Network, the recipe should take 25 minutes to prepare from start to finish.

The beauty of Yeh’s edible cookie dough is how versatile it is. She uses M&M’s in hers but any candy will work. Swap the M&M’s for something else or toss them in with a few other kinds of chocolate. Basically, follow the dough recipe and choose whatever mix-ins to add at the end. 

How did Yeh develop this recipe? She shared on Girl Meets Farm the recipe came about when she was pregnant with her now-2-year-old daughter, Bernadette. 

“I craved cookie dough when I was pregnant but I couldn’t eat it because it had raw eggs,” Yeh said. “So I subbed out the eggs, I cooked the flour, and I came up with this edible dough recipe.”

This recipe from the Girl Meets Farm host is a popular one. It averages five stars on Food Network’s website at the time of publication 

Reviewers love how easy and delicious it is. “Absolutely amazing! My family couldn’t keep their hands off of it!,” one person wrote. Another: “Tastes great and super quick and easy!” One reviewer called it the “best cookie dough recipe” they’ve “ever had.”
