Doesn’t the thought of freshly baked cookie dough that’s hot, warm and gooey make you so happy? I’m a big fan of cookie desserts like this hot cookie dough recipe, served with ice cream is a dream come true.

A Copycat Pizza Hut Cookie Dough Recipe
If you’ve ever been to Pizza Hut here in the UK, then you’ll probably know you can get delicious hot cookie dough as a dessert. I decided to make it myself and here it is with this recipe! You can also get hot cookie dough in restaurants like Creams and Kaspas.
If you’ve never had hot cookie dough from Pizza Hut before, it’s basically a deep-dish cookie filled with chocolate chips. It’s baked to perfection where it’s gooey in the centre, slightly crispy around the edges and served with ice cream.
I of course deviated from the original by using white chocolate chunks instead of milk chocolate chips. What’s so good about making hot cookie dough is how adaptable it is, you can add in your favourite ingredients and flavours. Chocolate chunks cut from a chocolate bar gives you pools of melted chocolate once baked – you can’t miss this! Chocolate chips won’t give you this effect.
I recently made raspberry and white chocolate cookies; this flavour combination will also taste amazing made into a hot cookie dough.
Watch How To Make It
You’ll only need the 7 ingredients below, most of which you’ll probably have at home already:
- Butter: You can use either salted or unsalted butter.
- Sugar: This recipe uses half caster sugar and half light brown sugar for a slightly chewy cookie around the edges. You can use all caster sugar or all light brown sugar.
- Egg: One small egg.
- Vanilla: For extra flavour.
- Plain Flour: Helps to bind the wet and dry ingredients together.
- Baking Powder: For a gentle rise.
- Chocolate: I used white chocolate, feel free to use any type of chocolate you like. It’s best to use a bar of chocolate chopped into chunks using a knife for pools of chocolate. Alternatively, you can use chocolate chips.
Do I Have To Use A Skillet?
Nope! The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t need a skillet to make this hot cookie dough. I baked this dessert using a regular 7″ baking tin.
If you do want to use a skillet, make sure the one you get is oven-proof! Stainless steel skillets or cast-iron skillets are suitable for baking in the oven. Avoid using any with a wooden or plastic handle, it’s best to read the description or label making sure if it’s oven-safe before buying or using one.
Should Cookie Dough Be Room Temp Before Baking?
You can bake cookie dough at room temperature or straight from the fridge. With this recipe there’s no chilling involved. Placing the cookie dough in the fridge helps the cookies to hold their shape and expand more slowly in the oven. For this recipe, the dough is baked in a baking tin or skillet, so we don’t need to worry about the cookies spreading.
