It’s time to get out of bed and into the kitchen, because there’s another crazy TikTok recipe to try whilst you’re stuck at home in lockdown.

Food trends are huge on TikTok right now. With most of the world in lockdown, everyone is becoming a professional baker as they turn to their kitchen for a bit of at home entertainment. 

Everybody is continuing to try TikTok’s Whipped Coffee as an alternative to their usual Starbucks iced coffee on the go. But the newest recipe that everyone is trying for themselves is Edible Cookie Dough!

The world is going crazy for TikTok’s easy cookie dough recipe, and it’s completely safe to eat. If you want to give it a go for yourself during quarantine, here’s just how to do it. 

What is Edible Cookie Dough?

Everyone loves making normal cookies and eating the mixture whilst you’re making it. But did you know this actually isn’t very good for you. Lots of cookie recipes contain eggs, and eating raw egg can be really dangerous as it can contain the bacteria Salmonella, which can cause food poisoning. 

So instead, the new and much safer trend is to make the cookie dough without making the actual cookies. The edible cookie dough doesn’t contain any eggs or raw ingredients that will harm you, and there are loads of recipes online.
