Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

What girl doesn’t have a memory of licking the beaters or eating finger-scoops full of chocolate chip cookie batter while their mom was baking cookies? It just felt right. Then, “they” started saying we were going to die from doing that because of raw eggs. Well, that just ruined all the fun. Then last year a friend of mine introduced me to a dip that tastes EXACTLY like cookie dough. All the sinful fun without the raw eggs!

Each month the women in my neighborhood get together for a “girls night” and enjoy some non-men, non-children fun. We rotate host houses and everyone brings a snack to share and their beverage of choice and we sit around and gab. I thought this cookie dough dip would be perfect for such an occasion. And it was – almost every single girl at the get together asked me for the recipe- it was a huge hit!

Be forewarned – this is super sweet and incredibly addicting!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip (adapted from Recipezaar)

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 (8-oz) pkg cream cheese
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
3/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Stir continuously, until the brown sugar dissolves. (You can also do this in the microwave but watch it closely. The butter/sugar mixture will boil over fast. Stir every 30 seconds or so.)

2. Remove from heat, whisk in vanilla extract and set aside to cool.

3. Beat the cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar for 1 minute.

4. Slowly beat in the cooled butter mixture and beat again for another minute.

5. Stir in the chocolate chips.

6. Pour into a serving bowl and refrigerate.

7. Garnish with additional chips, if you choose.

Serve with Nilla wafers (my choice) or graham crackers.

**Note: after refrigerating the dip it will be pretty solid and un-dippable so make sure to remove it from the refrigerator about 15-30 minutes before you plan on serving it, so it has time to soften up.

    this looks so amazing. i loooove cookie dough so i will have to give this a try sometime. and your girls nights sound like a blast! i need to move to a neighborhood like that ;-)

    Yum! I love this recipe. You are right, once you refrigerate it is pretty solid.

    One cute thing I do with this is to crunch up the nilla wafers and add some melted butter then I push that into the bottom of a cupcake liner and then put the “dip” on top and refrigerate. I always get raves when I do that!

    This looks so stinking good. I could go for a big scoop full of it right about now. I will be starring this recipe in my reader.

      Are you using real butter? Not margarine? And Philadelphia Cream Cheese…?

  17. Martha on February 9, 2011 at 9:34 pm

    I make a similar version but just soften the butter and cream cheese and blend it all together, then chill and serve with graham crackers or the chocolate wafer cookies sold by the ice cream toppings. I’ll definitely try the nilla wafers !!


  18. Sarah on February 16, 2011 at 11:38 am

    I made this for a Superbowl party I was going to – even doubled the recipe!! SO GOOD! – Just didn’t need to double it because it was so rich, even with using light butter & FF Cream Cheese! Delicious and will definitely make again – it’s gone into my “Busy Mom’s Cookbook” binder of all my go-to recipes.

    I just made this and it tastes great. But mine is a beige color. I am not sure I cooked the brown sugar long enough. How do you know when the sugar/butter mixture has cooked long enough?


    • Michelle on October 26th, 2011 at 5:20 pm

      Hi Debbie, Just until the brown sugar is completely melted.

    Can this be made ahead of time then frozen? Once needed just thaw it out?


    • Michelle on January 30th, 2012 at 5:28 pm

      I have never done that, but before freezing I would recommend just making it a day or two in advance and keeping it covered and refrigerated if you need to free up some time.

    I made this recently for a little get together. It is so simple to make and my friends loved it. But I am not sure I did it right… the brown sugar was not dissolving into the butter like I thought it should. It wasn’t a problem, however, once I blended everything together… it still mixed in nicely.

    Also, I wanted to use graham cracker sticks but couldn’t find them at the store so I settled on the Nilla Wafers for dipping and LOVED THEM with this recipe. Thanks!

    Made this for the Super Bowl – so so good!! Didn’t taste like cookie dough to me – you could taste the cream cheese too much. But it was still so delicious!!

    My brown sugar melted waaaay before the butter did. Next time (oh yes there will be a next time!) I will cut up the butter so its smaller than a big stick and will melt faster.

    I made something similar to this, using 1/2 cup softened butter, 8 oz softened cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar, 2 T brown sugar, 1 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1 cup chocolate chips. I just creamed it altogether and thought that’s how I was going to use it but I thought it tasted too much like the cream cheese. So, I saw a post somewhere else that suggested adding flour and white sugar so I did. I added like 1/2 to 3/4 c flour and about 1/2 c of white sugar. It made it more the consistency of regular cookie dough and was it ever yummy. I’m taking it to a church picnic for the first time tomorrow so we’ll see how it goes!
