About Cookie Dough Dip

Is it too soon to post another cookie dough recipe?

Yes?

Maybe?

Well, sorry (yet not sorry at all) but I just can’t help myself. This chocolate chip cookie dip simply had to be made.

And I must have had a bigger dose of cookie dough cravings than I thought, because not only did I make (and eat all of) these Red Velvet Cookie Dough Bars, but when we had company come the following Friday and I needed a fast and easy dessert, I whipped up this chocolate chip cookie dough dip recipe.

But 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 if your thing.

Plus, we wouldn’t have been proper hosts to our guests if we didn’t pump their kids full of sugar at 8PM. Because I’m sure their parents just loved us for that.

Though, in my defense, it wasn’t until after this chocolate chip cookie dough dip recipe was already whipped, served, and scooped on to graham crackers that I realized what time it was.  And I did start to feel a little bit bad about it. Really, I did.

But then I watched the parents scoop up their own helping of chocolate chip cookie dough dip and didn’t feel quite as guilty.

As the kids zoomed around the room, all was forgiven in the end (I think), and it was all thanks to this chocolate chip cookie dip.

Chocolate chip cookie dip.

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

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.

Which is totally fine with me – milk chocolate is where it’s at, amirite?!

We didn’t get through all the dip that night, so I packed it up in the refrigerator and snacked on it some the next day. Okay, okay, fine – so it might have been in the morning – but dessert for breakfast is just one of the many joys of being an adult.

And I did have a piece of toast first, so I’m going to go ahead and call my early morning chocolate chip cookie dip binge my second breakfast. And there are no rules about second breakfast.

So, there you have it: an easy dessert dip you can whip up in a flash and can be made in advance. It feels like I’m always stressing when we have company over, but this will easily become one of my go-to dips – and I always seem to have the ingredients on hand!

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.

For this cake batter dip, the ingredients you want to be careful of are the butter and cream cheese.

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.

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.

notes & tips for cookie dough dip

  • The best part about this recipe? You can relive all those childhood memories of licking the beaters without getting those judgmental “don’t eat raw eggs or raw flour” side eye looks that seem all too common these days. 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.

Ingredients 

Instructions

  • Using a stand mixer (or a hand mixer + large bowl), beat butter and cream cheese on medium speed until fluffy, about 2 minutes.

Notes

* 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.

    Made the dip just now but the recipe says beat 2 minutes but now I didn’t do that but 30 second’s still too long.. so beat only for few seconds than add other ingredients

    • Nicki

    I have made this before and it is so good, but I was wondering how it does in the fridge for a day or two? Because I wont have time to make the dip tomorrow evening and was wondering if it would be fine if I made it today.

    • Hey Nicki! 😀 The dip would be totally fine in the fridge, but since it has cream cheese, you would need to let the dip sit out for 1-2 hours so it can become soft and dippable again.

    • Ellie

    I honestly want to eat this so bad. Look so good.

    • Shannon

    Tastes just like cream cheese to me. Nothing like cookie dough! I’m disappointed to say the least.

    • Hey Shannon! Sorry this didn’t turn out like you were hoping 🙁 Cream cheese makes an amazing consistency base for dips like this, but the taste itself is hard to overcome. I’ve been thinking about trying a new cookie dough dip recipe that doesn’t use cream cheese – I’ll be sure to ping you if I can ever come up with a decent one!

    • Crystal

    This is a great recipe, I have made it many times and its always a hit. My son calls it “Cookie Crack”. We think it is better served with pretzels or pretzel chips to offset the sweet.

    • Tonia from TheGunnySack

    This just might be the best dip ever!

    • Tara

    I just made it, I doubled the recipe as I am feeding a large group. I followed it exactly as shown but it tastes terrible. Way too cream cheesey and tastes very tart. Any suggestions on balancing this out?

    • Sorry it didn’t have the taste you were looking for Tara! Dips with a cream cheese base are tricky – cream cheese gives great texture, but the cream cheese taste is always a bit “there.” You could try increasing the powdered sugar 1/4 cup at a time until you get the desired sweetness, but the dip may become more dry and thick if you go beyond another 1/2 cup of powdered sugar.

    • Victoria

    Just made the dip for a book club meeting tonight. I’m a baker and usually bring a bake good, but thought I would give this a try. As always, I have to taste test 😉 before serving to anyone and this isn’t a bad dip for a quick put together. In my opinion it’s a little lack luster, but will serve the purpose for my event. I personally wouldn’t put it out for a dinner party, but I think it’s a perfect sweet dip to have during a football gathering or a casual gathering. I appreciate the recipe!

    • Thank you for the honest feedback Victoria!

    • elise

    Does anyone actually make the recipe before commenting on it? I can see that it looks good, I want to know if it tastes goid!

      • Jeremy “I Actually made this”

      Ha Ha! My sentiments exactly! I DID actually make this, and while it was VERY sweet, I enjoyed it thoroughly. It didn’t seem to have an overpowering taste of butter when I ate it, but with all the sugar in the recipe, a little less butter couldn’t hurt. I will have to try with pretzels next time… once I’m done with my no carb diet that is.

    • Kerry

    I agree with Csitlyn …. Mine tasted too buttery.

    • Thanks for the feedback Kerry. I’ll work on the ratios and see if there’s a better balance.

    • Caitlyn

    I made this. Was good. I felt like there was too much butter in it I could taste it over everything.

    • Thanks for the feedback Caitlyn!

    • Pat

    Have any of you people made this recipe? it looks fantastic, but would love to hear from someone who has made it. Thanks
