Chocolate Chip Cookie Coffee Creamer

Love Chocolate Chip Cookies? Love Coffee? You’re going to flip for this new creamer recipe! Chocolate Chip Cookie Coffee Creamer is a tasty way to start your morning.

I may or may not be addicted to homemade coffee creamers! It all started with this Pumpkin Coffee Creamer. Our traditional french vanilla coffee creamer soon followed, have you tried it yet?

Why this Recipe is Best

Since I found out how to make coffee creamer, I’ve created dozens of variations.

From Almond Joy Coffee Creamer to simple French Vanilla Coffee Creamer, they’ve saved me so much money and time!

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Coffee Creamer is no different. I took the brown sugar, vanilla and chocolate flavors I love in the classic chocolate chip cookies and blended them into a rich creamer.

Using a combination of sweetened condensed milk and regular milk gives the creamer a delicious consistency. It’s sweet without being cloying.

Perfect for adding to hot or iced coffee!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed for chocolate chip cookie coffee creamer.

Making today’s recipe is simple enough with ingredients you may already have in your pantry. Be sure to scroll down all the way to the recipe card for a complete list with exact measurements.

  • Milk. You can use any kind of milk for today’s coffee creamer recipe. I usually opt for skim (or fat free). Whole milk will make it even richer and creamier. Nonfat would work too!
  • Vanilla extract. Make sure to use a real pure vanilla here. I love adding my homemade Vanilla Extract to creamers.
  • Brown Sugar. Adds the perfect sweetness and gives it a caramelized flavor like a cookie!
  • Sweetened condensed milk. Sweet and rich.
  • Cocoa Powder. Use unsweetened cocoa powder for this recipe. Ghirardelli is my favorite, as it blends well and has a rich flavor.

Tips and Tricks

  • Always use a small saucepan with milk over low heat when you’re combining milk with cocoa powder. It only takes a few extra minutes, but it makes a world of a difference. You don’t really want a chalky cocoa powder taste to your creamer, right?
  • Add the vanilla extract to the creamer after removing it from heat. Make sure to whisk in the vanilla until well combined.
  • Store your creamer in a mason jar or covered container. You’re going to want to be able to give it a good shake before using. The sweet milk (and the chocolate) tends to settle to the bottom. Shake Shake Shake.
  • When determining your “use by” date, go by the date of your milk. I can use a batch of this creamer in about a week and a half by myself. But I drink a lot of coffee. If you need to know how long this creamer will last, check your date on your milk. That’s the date to determine your expiration on this creamer.
  • Feel free to use fat free condensed milk and fat free milk to make this creamer a little bit healthier. Or, go fully indulgent and use regular sweetened condensed milk with whole milk (or even heavy cream). YUM.
  • Serve over iced coffee for a refreshing treat!

Recipe FAQs

Can I use dark brown sugar instead of light brown?

Yes, you can. Dark brown sugar has a deeper molasses flavor and darker color so it will affect the flavor and color of the creamer accordingly.

Can I heat the milk in the microwave instead?

I don’t recommend the microwave for this recipe. Whisking the cocoa powder into the milk while it heats helps it get fully incorporated so it’s smooth and not lumpy. It’s also more difficult to control the temperature of your milk if you microwave it. Scalding the milk by accident can result in an “off” flavor in your creamer.

What can I use instead of sweetened condensed milk?

I haven’t found any substitutes for the sweetened condensed milk that give the creamer the same heavenly taste. Although, I have used fat free versions of condensed milk with great results!

    Comments & Reviews

    1. I love this creamer! the flavor is perfect! But is there any way I can make this thinner?? I don’t really like thick textured creamer but I’m not quite sure how to thin it out.

    2. Just tried making this and my cocoa powder clumped together at the bottom. Has this happened to anyone? Not all of it was clumped, but I whisked for 15 minutes and there were still some chunks at the bottom. How long did you whisk for?

      1. Did you whisk it while you heated it? I make this all the time with no issues. Wonder if maybe it’s the brand (or date) of your cocoa powder?

    3. hey there…ive been searching forever for a good recipe for choc chip creamer that tastes just like the coffeemate one. is it possible to substitute soy milk or whatnot if you are lactose intolerant, or just want a healthy version? thanks 🙂

      1. Soy milk will definitely change the flavor, but play around with the other ingredients and you may find you love it 🙂

    4. I have got to tell you!!! I love your recipes! The choc. chip creamer was awesome! but being the crazy kitchen lady that I am I had to put my own spin on it so….. I love the mocha peppermint creamer. I am always trying to be a little healthy (Had wt. problems a good part of my life & lost 75lbs!) So I studied & continue to study nutrition just for fun. (I’m a nurse by profession) I made the 2nd batch of choc. chip creamer with the sweetened condensed milk, whole milk, cocoa powder & instead of adding more sugar by using the br. sugar I added just a smidge of stevia! Then I added 3-4drops of peppermint candy oil (because I had it) and Waalaa! (spelling?) haha! Anyway I was so excited I had to let you know! This is the 1st comment I’ve ever left on a blog in my life & I’m old! 🙂 51 if you want to know the truth! Anyway THANKS for the recipe & inspiration!

    5. That creamer you saw in the store has been my favorite for a very long time now…and they’ve discontinued it. I’m so upset over it!!! I even went online to amazon and bought 540 little creamers to get me through. Lol. My husband found this and is going to make it! So thankful he found it!

    6. I love your creamer recipes, and I heard using the sweetened condensed milk is way healthier than the store-bought creamers, yessss!! You must tell us how you stay so skinny with all of your delicious treats!
      I might have to make a trip to the store just so I can make creamer, lol!!

      1. I usually use skim milk (fat free) with the fat free condensed milk. But any milk will work (it will just be thicker and richer…not a bad thing!)

    7. I’ve been buying this for months now. It is quite expensive to keep up my addiction. So terrible I haven’t even checked the ingredients. I am so tickled to see this recipe. I’ll be trying this and many more in the coming weeks. Thank you!

    8. My Favorite now is the Cinnamon Vanilla Cream from Coffee Mate so I am going to try the Cinnamon Coffee Creamer you posted today but I also really like the toasted Hazelnut … do you have a Hazelnut Coffee Creamer?

    9. I couldn’t seem to get this to work. 🙁 It tasted chalky and sort of left a sour aftertaste. I’m not sure where I went wrong, it certainly didn’t taste like chocolate chip cookies. Help! I don’t want to drink chemical laden oil to get my cookie fix! 🙁

      1. Yikes. That doesn’t sound right at all. By heating the ingredients in a saucepan, it will combine the cocoa so it’s not chalky. Maybe it didn’t heat long enough, or wasn’t fully whisked into the other ingredients? Good luck.

    10. I finally had the opportunity to make this fantastically delicious Chocolate Chip Creamer. This is SOOO GOOOD! Thank you, Aimee, for posting it! 🙂

    11. I admit! I saw the one at the store and bought it. I started making my own creamer months ago and hate buying it, but I didn’t have time that morning. Pretty good. But, I also immediately came home to search Pinterest so I could make it myself. So, I made yours this morning (and added some chocolate chips for an extra kick).Yummy!! I will never buy that chemical-laden one again! I make my condensed milk as well. I’m loving this! Thank you.

    12. I saw this at the groc. store this am and looked at the ingr. and couldnt pronounce them along with the preservatives so I came home and immediatedly made this. OMG so easy and tastes AWESOMEEEEEEEEEEEEE. im thinking I can even put some into my homemade brownies. Cant wait for it to cool down and add to an ICED COFFEE tomorrow. IM HOOKED NOW and love your easy recipes. TKS

      1. Awww reading your comment made my night!! That’s why I love making recipes at home. So easy. So delicious. And you can pronounce everything in them 🙂 Glad you enjoyed the coffee creamer (and yes, it tastes amazing in Iced Coffee too :))

    13. You seriously make the best coffee creamers! Each one of them has me drooling! Love this CCC version – I could totally drink this all on it’s own 🙂 Pinning!

    14. I thought I was the only one that would see something in the store and have my brain run wild with recipe ideas. Apparently it’s a food blogger thing! This coffee creamer sounds fantastic. I must give it a try!
