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.

    This is basically a Cream Cheese Frosting recipe. The only real difference is the brown sugar and chocolate chips. Where is the dough part?

    This is one of the worst recipes ive ever made. It tastes nothing like cookies and was a huge disappointment. Call it what it is! This is just glorified sweetened cream cheese. It tastes like crap and is a waste of time and ingredients. Im warning everyone else DONT MAKE THIS GARBAGE.

    • Tracy Canfield

    Just made this … Amazing!!

    I’ve made this several times and it’s delicious! The tart cream cheese flavor is delicious in this. I recently used this to frost sugar cookies and it was ridiculous (in a good way)! My an old friend of mine even loves this dip and he is soooo picky.

    SOOO GOOD!!!I made this for a party and it was gone in seconds!

    I just made this for a get together. It tasted very cream cheesy. Not a bad thing since I like cream cheese, but it wasn’t as “cookie doughy” as I’d imagined. I added more powdered sugar to cut the tartness and that helped.

    • Vencee24

    SO amazing – tastes like cheesecake. Also tried it with Reese’s pieces instead of chocolate chips & OMG, so good!

    • Suzi

    I just made this for a picnic for my dish to pass and of course I had to taste test it, and honestly, i am not a fan. All I can taste it’s cream cheese and I even put in a fan auld 16oz of brown sugar and confectionery sugar. Won’t make this again…????

    • Alicia

    I have made this dip probably 4 times now, and it is so delicious every time! I’m eating some with pretzels as I write this. I only used 1/4 cup butter this time, and I always use mini semisweet chips. I’m not sure why some people have a problem with the cream cheese taste – it’s like chocolate chip cookie dough cheesecake, people! It’s fabulous!
    Thank you for this recipe.

    • Hannah

    I just made this and words can not describe how delicious it is!! SO yummy. I did cut back a bit on the butter but kept all the other measurements the same. It was light (not in the calorie sense), fluffy and I didn’t find the cream cheese over powering at all. Perfection! Making it again tomorrow for a potluck.

    • fryerstarter

    on an off note sugar does not make kids hypercative, thats caffiene.

    • Carlee

    I made this dip yesterday. It was yummy, but it in no way tasted like cookie dough. It was much closer to a chocolate chip cheeseball.

    • Howard

    Wow great idea on another fun way to make cookie dough front and center.

    • Nadine

    Made this for a teen gathering. My kid and her friends ate it up! It was a hit. All the kids asked for the recipe. 🙂 I did follow the tip and used 1/3 cup butter instead of 1/2.

    • Thanks for writing in, Nadine! I’m so glad everyone liked it 😀

    • Kendra

    Was good, but was more of a cheesecake dip than a cookie dough dip. Maybe instead of cream cheese it can be substituted for Dream/cool whip?

    • I think that could work, Kendra! Cream cheese is a great base for dips like this because the consistency is good, but it is very hard to cover up the taste.

    • Debi

    I am absolutely going to make this. I’ll try not to eat it all myself! Just one question: is it necessary to add the butter? What do you think of leaving it out? After all, I am watching my calories?

    • The butter is good for consistency and taste, but I’m not 100% sure it’s required. Essentially, this dip is like a big bowl of frosting – and there are frosting recipes that don’t include butter, but many use shortening instead (which still isn’t very diet conscious). I can’t say for sure how it’d turn out, but might be worth a shot? If nothing else, you could use less butter (1/4 cup).

    • Karen

    How in the world can anything be TOO BUTTERY?

    This looks great; I shall make it this week for 10 of my grandchildren. They are cookie-dough hounds! : )

    • Haha, I kinda feel the same way as you do about the butter, but to each their own 😀

      I hope the grandkids enjoy it, Karen!

    • Aznative

    This is very good. I did use less butter but it was a hit. I will definitely make this one again. Thank you for sharing!

    • Thank you so much for writing in! I’m so glad you liked it 😀

    • Whitney

    Does it have to be unsalted butter? I currently have salted butter on hand. :/

      • Kathleen Lewis
      • 1 star

      Use salted butter and don’t add the salt to the recipe.

    • Megan Johnson

    Oh my goodness!!! This dip is so good! My whole family loves it! My cousins birthday is tomorrow and I am planning to make it! It’s so quick and easy to make! Thank you Homemade Hooplah for coming up with this delicious recipe!!!?
