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!

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!

  45. How can I make the brownie batter dip into brownies? I would really like to try it. Do I just add eggs, oil and water, then bake? I’m just really curious. Thank you!

    • Hi, Julie,

      I’m afraid with the addition of cream cheese and mascarpone cheese, you’d need to add eggs and more dry ingredients. Since baking is a science, I’m afraid it would take a lot of experimentation to get it right. Wish I could be of more help. I have loads of brownie recipe if you want to go that route instead. My one-bowl fudgy brownies are easy and taste terrific!

  46. My daughter and I had so much fun making this dip together! It was the perfect yummy treat for movie night!

  47. What a terrific dip especially for my chocoholics here! Can’t wait to try this!
