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.

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.
