Monster Cookie Dough Dip FAQs
Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
Yes! Not only is this recipe quick to throw together, but it's also easy to make ahead of time. Just mix everything together and store in an airtight container until you're ready to serve your dip! You will want to let it sit out for 20-30 minutes before you are ready to serve so it can soften up a little bit.
Can I use gluten-free flour?
Yes! If you prefer to use gluten-free flour, feel free to swap it out for almond, coconut, or even oat flour. Whatever you have on hand should work fine. You will still want to toast the flour off to kill anything in it.
Why do I need to toast raw flour before making this?
Raw flour can contain harmful bacteria that can make you sick if not killed off before eating it. By baking the flour, it kills anything in the raw flour that may be harmful, so it's safe to consume this cough dough dip.
