Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Frozen Yogurt

This can also be called the Man Grabber Frozen Yogurt. Or maybe the Happy Wife Frozen Yogurt. I found this recipe in the Better Homes and Garden Bridal Cookbook.  They sure had a winner in this one making both the wife and husband happy through cookie dough. Cookie dough that is safe and refreshing to eat.

Mr J's first response was that it really does taste like cookie dough. More cookie dough than frozen yogurt to be exact. Well yea! Silly man.

After making the dark cherry chocolate chip Greek frozen yogurt last week in the ice cream maker I decided to try a new method for this go around. Mix all of the ingredients together and then simply freeze. No machine necessary.

The results were a much creamier, smoother consistency.  One I enjoyed more than the ice cream maker version. However, this was much more dense. It makes about two cups or four servings.  

As for the happy wife and husband. We have spent a few nights eating together on the couch out of the same bowl.  Those smart folks at Better Homes and Garden sure know how to bring a couple together. Quite literally.

  7. This sounds so yummy! I once tried to simply freeze yogurt to make frozen yogurt (no machine) but it didn't turn out so well. Maybe I need something in it like cookie dough to make it less icy.
