Easy Brownie Batter Dip

I first made a scrumptious Cookie Dough Dip a few years ago. I packed it up in a cooler and brought it on a road trip with some couples from our neighborhood. They went hog wild over it. And, as a cookie dough lover, I was thrilled that it was egg-free and extremely swoon-worthy.

I’ve been meaning to taste test a chocolate version, so grabbed a box of brownie mix to make a super easy chocolate dessert dip. Mixed with cream cheese, butter, my homemade mascarpone cheese (you may certainly use store-bought or even Greek yogurt or sour cream) plus a few more ingredients created a magnificent indulgence!

Pop a few candies on top of this brownie dessert dip to make a seasonal treat perfect for any of your upcoming holiday parties. Or use your team colors to make a fun, interactive game day treat! I shake up these Patriotic Brownie Cookies with different colored M & Ms depending on the holiday.

Tips for Making a Chocolate Dessert Dip

  • Use your favorite box of brownie mix. Since you only need one cup, place the leftovers in a sealed bag and store in the freezer for your next batch.
  • This is easily made gluten-free by using a gluten-free brand of brownie mix.
  • Garnish with your favorite candies like toffee bits, chocolate chip or any chopped candy bars.
  • If it’s hard to find mascarpone cheese in your area, feel free to use Greek yogurt or sour cream instead.
  • By swapping out these holiday-colored M&Ms, you can use this dip for game day with team colors, or pastel candies for Easter. It’s the perfect treat for any occasion!
