It's Happy Snacking!, our recurring feature that teaches viewers the art and science of manufacturing delicious foodstuffs at home.

You might want to go ahead and chug some pre-emptive Pepto now to lay down a good base coat: The Internet's own Randy Cleveland is about to demonstrate how you can make a tempting batch of "No-Bake" cookies in just one easy-to-follow step. There's no place like Happy Snacking! for the holidays!

First, you usually don’t keep the tubes frozen, but refrigerated until use.
Second, you don’t slice the tube, you roll the dough into balls and put it on the cookie sheet to bake.
In other words, yer doin’ it wrong.

Finally, Mogwai rules!

I laughed because I *used to* eat raw cookie dough and hamburger and a bunch of other stuff when I was little away back in the 70's. That said, if you now eat it, it could KILL you.

BarfBlog had an article just last week about e-coli in the flour in nestle's cookie dough--check it out.



Dear god, I sound like my mother, except it couldn't be my mother because she was feeding me raw cookie dough, raw hamburger and undercooked chicken.

I always sliced the roll-style refrigerated dough.

Unfortunately, modern food and medical practices have resulted in much sturdier and robust versions of bacteria/viruses (virii?) than the versions which existed back in the olden days.

Just a few days ago I heard a report of a bunch of people getting sick from eating raw cookie dough.

Unbelievable what Woot comes up with for their weekly videos. I'm amazed every time.

It could be easier - if you had someone to open the package for you...or maybe go to the store and buy the cookie dough and THEN open it for you.

Where are those robot slaves we were promised at the '64 Worlds Fair when you need 'em?

Sugar 'em up and send 'em home

Here's my no-bake cookie recipe:

1. Find someone who bakes cookies. (Ideally, you live with or very near this person.)
2. Have them bake cookies. (Again, ideally, they just bake cookies anyway, but you may have to hint.)
3. Eat the cookies.
4. Thank them profusely. (This is the key step for consistency and repeatability.)

Also: holiday cookie decorating parties.

I'm just hanging out, really.

The only problem with that? You wind up eating cookies that have been baked.

Mmmmm. Cookie dough.

Yeah, thats really not top secret info there. I am such a big fan of "no bake" cookies I have to make a double batch everytime I make chocolate chip cookies because I will eat half of the dough before it ever sees the inside of the oven.......

Do not follow me, I walk into walls!

Pepto Bismal anyone? Maybe you should drink these with coffee instead of whiskey to offset the sugar comma.

I'm impressed. A 3+ minute video describing a single step feat of culinary... uhhh... yeah. Ok, maybe 2 steps with the whiskey being step one.

Um, yea. Probably not the best timing for this particular "Happy Snacking" episode. This month's Journal of Clinical Infectious Disease has the final findings on a multi state outbreak of toxogenic E. coli that was caused by eating raw cookie dough. For those of you interested in such things, the original MMWR issue with the report may be found here

When setting up our podcast schedule, we ALMOST ALWAYS check it against what's in the current Journal of Clinical Infectious Disease to avoid embarrassing coincidences like this. There was just an oversight this week. We regret the error.

Maybe if you mix the whiskey with the dough the alcohol would kill the E-coli?

A. ewwwww
B. could you just stick it in the microwave or boiling water for a bit?
C. I hope that he didn't really eat all that.

Still single, can't imagine why.

ewwwww? Also, I don't think it would work like you expected.

I have done this, and it is fun.

Apparently it's fashionable to have a signature.

I have it on good authority that they went through 6 rolls of cookie dough to perfect that video...

(j/k ...but if the gamer group got together, I could totally see that happening ;o)

You only think that because you keep coddling your immune system.

Your stomach is definitely the ideal place to mix it. Imagine how bad cheap cookie dough with chunks of chocolate chips would taste when 'watered' down with rye whiskey. Pretty bad right?

Somehow it actually tastes worse than that.

Economics Teacher: Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
Simone: Um, he's sick. My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at 31 Flavors last night. I guess it's pretty serious.
Economics Teacher: Thank you, Simone.
Simone: No problem whatsoever.

When I saw the tube at the beginning of the video, I thought I knew what was coming. In part I did, but it was so much more than I expected.

I can't believe he (apparently) ate the whole thing. Even I can't do that in one sitting. Although I have had a Sam's Club size tub of cookie dough that never saw a temperature over 98.6 degrees. Just not all at once.
