I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like cookie dough. I can still remember as a teenager buying a roll of Toll House® Cookie Dough just to sit on the couch with my girlfriends eating it with a spoon, while watching the latest episode of Dawson’s Creek. It’s amazing that I never got sick from either too much sugar or Salmonella.
Well, if you’re like me and want a safe way to eat cookie dough or if you’re on a restricted diet due to allergies or sensitivities then this recipe is for you. These are my vegan, gluten-free, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Shooters! It’s free of the top-8 allergens: dairy, egg, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, and gluten/wheat. With it being egg-free, you never have to worry about Salmonella. This is every pregnant woman’s dream!
I recently made these for my oldest’s 6th birthday party. I found these cute little plastic shooters and layered the cookie dough with the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. I added a cute little spoon and the kids loved them. To say they were a big hit is an incredible understatement – it was the first time during the entire party that the house was silent. Plus they are super easy – no baking! You can make them in advance and refrigerate them until it’s party time. WIN-WIN-WIN!
So go on, whip up a batch of cookie dough, and call your friends over for a binge watching session of your favorite television show.
*This recipe makes 8-12 shooters – depending on the size of your shooter glass*
- ½ Cup Dairy-free, Soy-free Butter, melted
- ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
- ½ Cup Brown Sugar
- 4 TBS Water
- ¼ Tsp. Salt
- 1½ Tsp. Vanilla
- 1 Cup Gluten-Free Flour Blend
- ½ Tsp. Baking Soda
- Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips
- In a large mixing bowl, add the melted butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, water and salt. Mix well.
- Add in the flour and baking soda. Mix until all is combined. If the dough seems a little stiff, add a little more water until it reaches the desired consistency.
- Fill shooter cups alternating the dough with Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips.
Be sure to read all of your labels. I have found many spices and other products (i.e. garlic powder) that include additional ingredients like soy.

You should always check with the manufacturer to confirm that your child can have their product(s). The products that I list are items that I’ve been using for awhile and have proven to be safe for my boys (their allergies are dairy, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish, shellfish and sesame).**
