Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

This chocolate chip cookie dough dip taste just like cookie dough!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

It’s time for a little confession. I realize this may get me shunned (especially in my hometown of Pittsburgh!), but….I don’t like football.Β I don’t like to watch it, I never liked playing football with my friends, I don’t even like playing catch with a football. If there was one thing Mike could change about me, I’m pretty sure this would be it.

That being said, I will watch the Superbowl. I like the party atmosphere (check out these food ideas!), I like that the Steelers are playing, but most of all, I like the food. Food like this delightful chocolate chip cookie dough dip you see here.

I saw this recipe on Jessica’s blog and made it the very next day.Β When it comes to chocolate chip cookie dough dip, I don’t waste any time. πŸ™‚

This stuff is awesome and really does tastes like cookie dough! I served it with animal crackers, but I think graham crackers would be a good choice as well. Or you could just eat it with a spoon, I won’t tell. Although if you serve it at your Superbowl party, a spoon might not be the best option. πŸ™‚


P.S. I recommend also trying other dessert dips such as this amazing S’mores Dip and this delightfulΒ Red Velvet Cheese Ball recipe!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 to 1 cup powdered sugar (*to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips, plus extra for sprinkling


  1. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the brown sugar until it dissolves and the mixture starts to bubble. Stir in vanilla and set aside to cool.
  2. In a separate bowl, cream the cream cheese and powdered sugar together for 60 seconds. With the mixer on low speed, add in brown sugar and butter mixture. Mix until combined. Stir in the mini chocolate chips.
  3. Garnish with additional mini chocolate chips. Serve with animal cracker, nilla wafers or graham crackers.

  1. Well, at least you admitted you will watch the Super Bowl! πŸ™‚ This dip is sinful!

  2. oh what yummy goodness this is! I will definitely have to try it! πŸ™‚

  3. Wow Megan……it looks yummy πŸ™‚

  4. Sometimes I think I should stop following you. Naughty…but oh so yummy. I am so making this for the Superbowl party I'm going to. I can always count on you for the best recipes. I look on your blog before I try any other online cooking resource. Thanks ~Jessica

  5. Megan, another thing we have in common. I have no interest in football whatsoever but I look forward to making something tasty. I want to take some snacks to a housefull of 16 year olds – boys and girls, I think. This just might be the ticket. Thanks for yet another SuperRecipe πŸ™‚

  6. I made a few versions of this and they were all delicious! Agreed that it would be terrific for super bowl.

  7. With a dip like that…I think you can be forgiven for not liking football!!! OMG that looks absolutely decadent!!

  8. Evil, I tell you… I could sit and eat bite after bite after bite!!

  9. I have been making this dip for 14 years, and everywhere I bring it, I never have leftovers.

    Its awesome. Its also yummy if you add some peanut butter to it.

  10. I remember this from Jessica's site. Can't wait to make it!

  11. WOw! I may want to make this for the SUperbowl! nom nom!

  12. I'm the same way with football and the Superbowl. It's just an excuse to pig out and not be judged by all your friends πŸ™‚ This dip looks great!

  13. Wow what a great recipe!! I'm definitely making this for Sunday!

  14. Wow! That looks really good! πŸ™‚

    This is a “must try” — not that I'll be watching the Super Bowl. I'm not a fan of football either. I might even make this one today for a fun little snack.

    Thanks for sharing!

  15. I too made this dip for a holiday party and it is so very delicious!
    I love cookie dough better than the baked cookie!

  16. Ahh, I want it so much!.. ~ xoxo

  17. Um, wow! That's all I can say about this dip!

  18. Megan, this looks unbelievable! Pure decadence, and I bet it tastes delicious. Thanks so much for sharing. I'm so glad to have found your beautiful blog and look forward to seeing more! πŸ™‚ – Georgia

  19. I’m always looking for great β€œfun” dips for the kids when they have parties and special overnight guests.
    This would be great to surprise them with. (I’ll probably β€œtry” a little myself.) πŸ™‚

  20. Oh man, this looks AMAZING! I love cookie dough more than anything!!

  21. I think my heart just stopped a beat when this beauty of a picture came up on my screen!! What a beautiful picture and recipe! I wonder if I can vegan-ize it?? Hmmmmmm

    Have a great weekend!


  22. Yum! I saw this on Jessica's blog, too… and I think it looks absolutely fabulous!

  23. I think I am going to make this for the super bowl party tomorrow. hehe.

  24. I want to make this so bad, but I'm on weight watchers and need to figure out what kind of dent it will make…can you give me an idea how many servings per recipe this is, and what size serving to expect? Thanks so much for another great recipe!

  25. OH MY GOODNESS!!! A Gluten free “cookie dough”!!! I'm super excited. I just recently had to cut gluten out of my diet, and I was sad to miss out on chocolate chip cookies!! This dip made my day!

  26. I am SO making this tomorrow!

  27. Ooo I saw this over on Jessica's blog too–sounds like heaven! I teach a cooking class next month all on chocolate, so this'll be perfect to add to my menu!

  28. I LOVE this recipe – I make it for every party we have; I could eat it with a spoon by myself πŸ™‚ LOL

  29. Oh my! This looks ridiculously delicious!!!!

    Love your blog! xx

  30. Every time I see this recipe on a blog, I feel simultaneously devastated and relieved that I never have cream cheese in the house. I know that if I made it, nothing would come between it, me, and a spoon…

  31. I'm from Pittsburgh too, and I don't like football either. I was sad we lost, though. The city is a nicer place when we win.

    The recipe looks tasty πŸ™‚

  32. That looks positively divine! I don't know if I could NOT eat the whole bowl. πŸ˜€

  33. you have absolutely out-done yourself, megan! this is fabulous!

  34. A sweet dip! I like it!

  35. Haha, I love it. This is amazing. I think I shall try it in sandwiches πŸ˜€

  36. I made this dip with butterscotch chips instead and it was awesome. I used animal crackers as the dipping tool and some people used saltines and liked those too, the sweet and salty was a good combination. thanks for posting!

  37. Ginny – So glad you liked this! Thanks for stopping back to let me know. Butterscotch chips sound like a great addition!

  38. Only time will tell when I will get a new pair of pants

  39. This is a fun idea. I imagine it's very addicting.

  40. I wonder if you could put this in a cookie crust and top with whipped cream and serve it as a kind of pie?

  41. Anonymous – I would think this might be a little too much for a pie. Maybe a tart with a cookie crust like you mentioned, and a very thin layer of this dip. This stuff is pretty rich! Let me know if you try it πŸ™‚

  42. I would eat this entire thing!

  43. Mmm I tried this exact recipe from her blog a few months ago. It's amazing and I keep getting requests!

  44. this taste nothing like cookie dough.

  45. I just stumbled upon this today. Superbowl is long gone. Now I need another excuse to make this. It looks terrific!

  46. I made this over the weekend and it is deadly… I cannot have this in my fridge! I just keep eating it! So yum. I'm down with any cream cheese dip.

  47. Is there something that can be substituted for the cream cheese, one of my friends is lactose intolerant but loves cookie dough! I would love to make this for her but she can't eat it. It would be great if there was an alternative.

  48. Cream paste can be used on the top i guess.

  49. Ryan – Unfortunately, I have no idea what could be used in place of cream cheese. It seems like a pretty integral part of the dish. You might do a google search for a vegan version of cream cheese?

  50. I made this for a party the other night, and I got compliments from everybody who ate it! I was literally offered money and sexual favors for this recipe. I didn't tell them that I got it off the internet and made it in 10 minutes πŸ™‚

  51. Allyson – I'm so glad it was a hit! But next time send all your friends to my blog πŸ˜‰

  52. Hey Megan!
    It should not really be a hit!
    how many more people should become
    reality is, slim people have to pay for their health problems!!!
    i only get sick by that!

  53. My friend referred me to your site yesterday, and I made this dip for a baby shower this morning. It looks (and tastes!) amazing! I'll be blogging about everyone's reaction later today.

    Thanks for the great recipe!

  54. Michelle – So glad you like it! I hope it's a hit at the baby shower as well πŸ™‚

  55. What is this insanity!! whoaa! Sounds awesome! Maybe with chocolate graham crackers?

  56. The pregnant mamas LOVED it (and so did everyone else!)

    Thanks so much! Love your site!

  57. This looks delicious! My hubby and I are originally from Pittsburgh, and he hates the Steelers (does love other football teams though). So you aren't alone! πŸ™‚ We joke that all the Pittsburgh local news stations cover is the Steelers!

  58. its disgusting. tastes nothing like cookie dough. It taste like caramel.

  59. Delicious! My mom's group had a “Dip It” night where everyone made and shared dips. This was a big hit.

  60. Ohhhh my… Just made this and I can give all of you a tip πŸ™‚
    It works wonders if you use it as topping for a carrotcake πŸ˜› Wery addictive πŸ™‚

  61. I am also from Pittsburgh – I just stumbled upon your page! I can’t wait to make this for the next game I am forced to sit through! Thank you Megan!!

  62. Oh I am in BIG trouble with this recipe!!

  63. Creme cheese?! Whoa, now I really won’t ever be able to stop eating cookie dough straight from the mixing bowl.

  64. This is fabulous! We are having a tea party next weekend for moms & daughters! This dip will work perfectly! The girls will love it! I am also from the Pittsburgh area and can do without football! Thank you for passing it on!

  65. Yummy…I want to eat this right off the screen!

  66. Sweet dips are so much tastier than savory ones! I could eat this with a spoon! Holy moly!

  67. needs deep-frying.

  68. Could use consistency. Made w/ choc/peanutbutter swirls choc. chips.. however tastes like cream sugar cheese and a 30 minutes on the elliptical. Better with animal cracka’s! Thx for the ingenuity tho.. needs improved.

  69. OMG Megan…this is wicked! My heart stopped for a second, but I can’t wait to try this out. Thanks!

  70. This looks so yummy! I just stumbled upon it. Thanks for sharing!

  71. WOW … YUMMY I love chocolate…so im in love with this dip… thanks for sharing dear! πŸ™‚

  72. this stuff is disgusting!!! it tastes like cream cheese and its horrible!! don’t waste your time or ingredients!

  73. This recipe doesn’t taste like chocolate chip cookie dough… all you can taste is the cream cheese. I wasted my time, and my money on something that was advertised wrongly. I wouldn’t suggest this recipe to anyone.

    • Sorry you didn’t like this! I think it’s either you love it or hate it type of recipe. Thanks for commenting to let me know, though – I always appreciate feedback.

  74. This taste purely of cream cheese, disgusting. Do not waste your time. I’m never using this blog again, and I will let my friends know of the horrible recipes indicated on this site. Whoever made this recipe obviously has no taste. I’m very disappointed.

    • Sorry you didn’t like the dip! I truly hope you won’t judge all of the recipes on here by this one recipe – clearly different recipes appeal to different people. Thanks for the feedback, however. I appreciate the comment.

  75. Whoa, some grumpy people out there slamming a freely given recipe on the internet…

    I must say, I was intrigued by one of the previous comments where they talked about the sweet/salty combo with saltines. I will be trying this one and use pretzels…CAN’T WAIT!!!! YUM!!!!

  76. This dip looks divine- I’ll have to try making it soon:) Thanks for the recipe!

  77. This recipe was a very good idea, but when I made it, the cream cheese tasted too strongly. Is there any substitute for the cream cheese? Other than this recipe, I love your site. Thanks Megan !

    • Sorry you didn’t like it! I’m not aware of any substitute for the cream cheese, but I”m sure you could play around with it and try to figure something out. People seem to either love or hate this recipe, which is interesting! I do think it tastes better cold, which hides the cream cheese flavor a little better. Thanks for your feedback!


  79. I think I’ll try this one! It looks amazing! πŸ™‚

  80. So glad to come across this. I will be featuring this on Best Friends For Frosting so be sure to check the homepage. Too cute!

  85. I HAVE to make this! Thank you!

  86. I can imagine how delicious this is gonna be, thanks for sharing πŸ™‚

  87. love this stuff! ive made it for several parties! your recipe is best! love to serve it with chocolate animal crackers!

  88. This looks so great. I cant wait to make it. Thanks for sharing.

  89. This dip looks absolutely amazing! I thought a chocolate fountain was great until this…We’ll be featuring this on our Weekly Roundup this week so all of our readers will get a chance to see this wonderful creation! Thanks for sharing and check out Thursdays!

  90. Well, it doesn’t taste like cookie dough, but it does taste great as an apple dip!

  91. Made this tonight for the most epic wish ever and it was a hit! It tasted absolutely delicious!

  92. I think that there are many men in my life who would love this, and then blame me for the fact that they got fat.

  93. Does this say 18 ounces of cream cheese? Excited to try this!!

  94. i made it and it had the consistency and look of a thick pancake batter – what did i miss? tastes great, though!

    • hmm…I’ve never had that happen so I’m not entirely sure. My best guess would be for you to double check your measurements. Other than that, maybe put it in the refrigerator and hope it thickens up? Sorry I’m not more help! Glad it tasted good though πŸ™‚

  95. Wow, A dip! Look out cookie lovers…

  96. Has anybody made it yet?? what wud u use cookie dough dip for?? πŸ˜€ looks unrealll

    • If you check out the comments, you’ll see that a lot of people have made this and liked it. πŸ™‚ Cookie dough dip is great for get togethers, girl’s nights, or anything where you’d have snacks πŸ™‚

  97. Do you need to dip things in it? I mean, would it be considered gauche if I just ate it with a spoon? Because I totally want to.

  98. I’ve been making this for years and we serve it with chocolate graham crackers….that is the absolute best!!

  99. Oh and usually we treat it like a cheeseball and wrap it in plastic wrap to make it into a ball and serve it at parties.

  100. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe! A friend of mine posted it on her Facebook wall and I knew immediately that I had to try it out. Made it for a Christmas party tonight, can’t wait to see what my friends think πŸ™‚

  101. it’s yummy

  102. Tasted like i was eating cream cheese, looks better than it tastes

  113. Just made this for a Christmas party. LOVED it before I put the brown sugar/butter mix in. Tasted it after and it had a little bit of a caramel/brown sugary taste to it (might tweak the recipe and use granulated sugar versus brown sugar next time). It’s still amazing though! I’m serving with a medley of animal crackers, Nilla wafters, and graham crackers. I’ll let you know what my guests think. (Wonder what it tastes like cold, too!). Thanks for sharing! =)

  114. This looks unbelievable! This would probably be an amazing dip for fresh fruit.

  115. While this doesn’t taste much like cookie dough, it is yummy! I do miss the grittiness of cookie dough. I wonder if adding some brown sugar last minute might help?

  118. How many people does this serve? I am going to make it for a party with around 20 people. Should I double the recipe?

    • It would depend on what other food you’re serving. If there are other snacks, etc, I wouldn’t double it. I’m not sure how many it serves, but I would think it would make enough if served alongside other food.

  119. Thanks Megan! It made plenty so I didn’t have to double. It was a hit!

  123. Hmm I have to wonder if the people saying that it tastes purely of cream cheese, put 18 oz in lol! Since the other poster thought it was 18 oz. I’m going to try this tomorrow since I have most of the ingredients here right now. Just need choc. chips & cream cheese. πŸ™‚ looks Yummy!!

  124. Made it tonight… Finally got to the store lol! It’s good. I am going to cut back on the brown sugar next time & only use 1/2 cup. But otherwise I like it a lot.

  125. I first saw this dip at a family reunion last summer. My cousin made it & served it with Teddy Grahams…different flavors. The kids thought it was pretty cool & the adults loved it!!

  129. I was so excited about this recipe! I made it tonight and it turned out really thin and the chocolate all melted – so it was chocolatey! I think I did something wrong – I think the cream cheese was too hot and the brown sugar mixture wasn’t cool enough. That’s what I get for being greedy! I am sure it will still be yummy – who doesn’t love chocolate and cream cheese??? At any rate – we are eating it and it’s yummy! I wil try again later!

    • I’m glad you like it, even thought it wasn’t exactly like you hoped! Yes, next time try cooling the brown sugar butter mixture more. If it is too hot it will melt the cream cheese and melt the chocolate. Let it cool completely, and then it will hopefully look more like the picture. Although if you like the chocolatey version, maybe just make it that way every time! πŸ™‚

  132. didn’t really taste like cookie dough. just tasted like cream cheese frosting. ended up putting it on top of cupcakes. didn’t make a good dip at all but was pretty good for frosting.

  133. I just made your dip and it is delicious!!!

  134. I don’t like football either. I have better things to do with my time than watch millionaires in tights chasing a leather ball across a finely manicured lawn and then slapping each other’s butts and saying that people who don’t do what they do are gay. This recipe looks amazing, by the way.

  137. Hi! First-time commenter here wanting to say thank you for all the delicious-sounding recipes! I came for your Bugs Bunny Bars (yum!) but can’t stop exploring! I’m definitely going to try this recipe, but possibly with sour cream instead of cream cheese. Brown sugar stirred into sour cream is a favorite snack of mine when craving something quick and sweet. Never thougth to add chocolate chips though!

  138. Ohhhh yum, yum, yum! Can’t wait to try this!

  139. This cookie dough dip has become a party-time staple in my house. Anytime I have friends over to my house they are all asking “where’s the cookie dip?” and “you made the dip didn’t you?” Needless to say it is a big hit and everyone loves it! Thanks for another good recipe.

  140. Question!!! What if it’s too liquidy??? Will it harden in the fridge??

    • It should stiffen up a little in the fridge due to the butter. But it shouldn’t be liquidy at all really. Maybe try adding a little more powdered sugar? other than that, I”m not sure. Sorry – I hope it turns out ok!

  143. Amazing! I just made this and it is beyond delicious. I served it with graham cracker sticks, nilla wafers, and honey wheat pretzel sticks. Next time I might try 1/2 chopped M&Ms and 1/2 chocolate chips.

  144. Delicious! For those who find it too cream-cheesy, I suggest substituting yogurt for part of the cream cheese. I did this and it worked great – not too rich, and the perfect dipping consistency!
