About Cookie Dough Dip

You guys. This chocolate chip cookie dip simply had to be made.

And can you blame me? It’s a cookie dough recipe we’re talking about here. And graham crackers. Or maybe pretzels, if that sweet and salty combo is your thing.

As for the dip itself, it has a very sweet, rich flavor, which makes it a prime candidate for a crowd-pleaser. Its sweetness also makes it a perfect pair for a salty dipping option like pretzels.

It’s an easy dessert dip you can whip up in a flash and can be made in advance.

What more could you ask for?

What to serve with cookie dough dip?

After making as many dessert dips as I have, you start to get a feeling for what goes best with these ultra creamy treats.

Below are some of my best suggestions. Feel free to try one (or as many) as you like!

Can you make this dip in advance?

One of the most common questions I get about dessert dips is whether or not you can make them in advance. I totally understand why someone would want to do this, as it’s easier to prepare treats for a party the night before than scrambling to get everything done the day of the event.

The good news is that the answer to this question is almost always yes. BUT, each dip has its own considerations depending on the ingredients.

To refrigerate this dip: Add dip to a bowl with a sealable lid. Secure lid and store in the refrigerator for up to two days. Before serving, allow dip to soften a bit at room temperature.

Can you freeze cookie dough dip?

Butter and cream cheese are okay to refrigerate, but dairy can be tricky to freeze. Because of this, I do not recommend freezing this dip.

How long can you leave out a dessert dip?

As with any appetizer or dessert, you should keep track of how long it sits out at room temperature.

For most foods, the general rule of thumb is that a perishable item should not be in the “danger zone” for more than two hours. And by “danger zone”, this is usually at or just above room temperature, which is how this dip will be served.

As the party goes on, you can move your dip back to the refrigerator once you get past the two-hour mark. If your guests still want more dip, let it chill for at least 30 minutes before bringing it back out again.

notes & tips for cookie dough dip

  • The best part about this recipe? You can relive all those childhood memories of licking the beaters without judgemental “don’t eat raw eggs or raw flour” side-eye looks because this recipe is eggless and flour-free. So enjoy it to your wildest content!
  • This dip is made using softened butter and cream cheese to make mixing easier, and it also makes for an especially creamy dip. However, if you’d like the dip to be a bit firmer, put it in the serving bowl of your choice and refrigerate for 1-3 hours, checking the consistency until it’s as firm as you’d like it to be.
  • For this recipe, I highly recommend using a stand mixer or a hand mixer. This isn’t a recipe you can make by hand with a whisk.
  • If making the dip in advance, refrigerate in a covered container overnight, then allow the dip to soften on your counter until it has a firmness you’d like for dipping.
  • As for the chocolate chips, you can use any type that you prefer. I took a small survey while throwing the ingredients together and (the kids) voted overwhelmingly for milk chocolate.

Instructions

* Some commenters have suggested using 1/3 cup butter. I tried this version and also liked it, so it’s a solid option if you’d like to go a little easier on the butter.

    I made this recipe for a New Year’s Eve work friends get together and I think some people were afraid of it for some reason 🤷‍♀️. I doubled the recipe and have a ton left over now lol. My bf and I love it though. Maybe the cream cheese flavor can be too much for people who are expecting traditional cookie dough flavor?

    I melt the butter, whisk in the brown sugar until fully incorporated. Set aside to cool, add to whipped cream cheese and continue to whip until smooth, add chips and mix in with spoon. I do not add 10X sugar. Great with fresh strawberries! Vanilla paste bumps up the flavor and has visible seeds.

    it was really good! I recomend adding more sugar and flower so the cream cheese taste isn’t so strong but overall It was amazing!

    I made this for a bbq and just about flipped when I tasted it!! AMAZING!! I used salted butter and I have to say I thought it tasted very very close to cookie dough! The party goers couldn’t get enough!! I served it with sliced green apples and sliced pink lady apples, along with Nilla Wafer cookies. Best dessert I’ve had in a long time!!!

    I made this for bible study, when we did a taste test, my an old friend of mine freaked and wanted to run away with it! It goes really good with not only Graham crackers, but also animal crackers! Amazing recipe, thanks so much we love it!!

    Sorry, but all I tasted was the cream cheese! It was VERY overwhelming! But it was still good, what I did was had some white chocolate chips (along with milk chocolate) and used some pretzels..

    My dip came out a little bit thin and the cream cheese is definitely strong but it’s not really a problem because I like cream cheese. I will definitely do again!

    I made this for a Christmas party at work. When I taste-tested it, I agree with other commenters that the cream cheese taste is overwhelming & I would not call this a cookie dough taste. I added a flour like another person suggested & that really helped downplay the “cheesecake” flavor & bring it more close to a cookie dough taste. Very good! I’m going to call it “cheesecake cookie dough dip” & serve it with Graham crackers.
