PHOENIX - Admit it. The best part of "baking" chocolate chip cookies has nothing to do with the oven. It's eating spoonful after spoonful of cookie dough!
Unfortunately, those pesky raw eggs and the risk of salmonella have health officials discouraging us from eating it too often (We know you still do, though!)
Well, on our hunt for delicious and unique treats around the Valley, we found a Tempe-based food truck that is serving up one heck of a decadent dessert -- the cookie dough puffle cone.
Watch the video in the player above to see how it's made.
The cone is made from a mixture of waffle and cake batter and baked in a waffle iron. It is then filled with one or two scoops of edible cookie dough, topped with candy pieces and syrups. You can even pair it with a scoop of vanilla, chocolate or mint-chocolate chip ice cream.
Friends Brandi Airey, a former masseuse, and Angi Cicillini , a hair stylist, founded the "Dough Licious Desserts" food truck earlier this year and officially hit the streets in September.
They have eight flavors of edible cookie cough including chocolate chip, sugar, Snickerdoodle, chocolate peanut butter, and one gluten-free flavor, oatmeal chocolate chip.
The cookie dough is made fresh in a commercial kitchen using pasteurized eggs and heat-treated flour to ensure it is safe to eat, said Airey.
Pricing varies between $4-$6 for one or two scoops, respectively.
Like most food trucks, Dough Licious will be at various events throughout the Valley. You can find their next stop on their Facebook page.
