I know what you're thinking. Is Deep Fried Cookie Dough really necessary?? No. Absolutely not. But also, YES. It is ab-so-LUTELY necessary!!! OH MY GAWD. Oh my gurrrrrrrd. I'm not sure how I've survived almost 34 years on this planet without this monstrosity.
Last week, thanks to a friend and thanks to this buzzfeed article, I discovered that Deep Fried Cookie Dough is a thing. A real thing that some (mental) people have actually tried. Of course, I just HAD to join their place in history, as a fellow freak of nature human that thinks this is a good idea. Let me tell you what happens when you fry cookie dough: you are left with a crispy crust, not unlike the edges of a funnel cake, and an ooey, gooey half-baked cookie-like interior.
It's rich. It's intense. It's something you might want to share with a friend. But it's totally worth it. And if you don't think so, then go eat some kale in the corner.
