Enjoy the flavor of an old fashioned root beer float in a cookie.The white chocolate chips provide the creaminess of the ice cream for these Root Beer Float Cookies.
Is there really anything better than an old fashioned root beer float. I think root beer and ice cream were just meant to go together. One of my favorite summer treats is a Root Beer Whirl which is basically a root beer float all mixed up! And I also love this Root Beer Float Ice Cream.
Favorite Ice Cream Treat
Have you ever thought of putting your favorite ice cream treat into cookie form!? Well, someone did, and when I found this recipe floating around Pinterest I knew I had to try it since I love a root beer float.
I was skeptical at first, a cookie that tastes like a root beer float? How could a cookie taste like a root beer float???
How to Make Root Beer Float Cookies
The cookie doesn’t actually have root beer soda in it. The recipe uses root beer concentrate which you can usually find in the baking aisle, right next to the extracts. It is used to make homemade root beer. The concentrate gives it a subtle yet definite root beer flavor. It is one of those flavors that if you don’t know what it is you may have a hard time putting your finger on it, but once you know, you can definitely taste it!
The cookies taste just like root beer and the white chocolate chips add in the creaminess of the ice cream. The cookies are soft and chewy and have a nice root beer flavor, but not too strong.
Tip for Pretty Cookies
I like to reserve some of my chocolate chips and place three of them on top of the scoop of cookie dough before baking. It makes for a prettier cookie!
So the next time you get a craving for a root beer float try a root beer float cookie instead! It’s kind of fun to chew your root beer float instead of drink it.
