Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

I love cookie dough as much or more than cookies! Many times I’ve made the huge sacrifice of giving up cookie dough for the long, long 40 days of Lent.

The hubby gives me “that look” when he sees me eating raw cookie dough. I usually roll my eyes right back at him, telling him I’ve been doing this for decades! I wish 40 days of deprivation would rid me of this not so healthy habit, but it doesn’t. (By the way, you can’t really become immune to salmonella, darn it!).

With my metabolism slowing as I age (gasp), I don’t think spoonfuls of the mixture of butter, sugar and raw eggs are the best thing for my waistline either.  But that doesn’t mean that I must totally deprive myself. So when I saw a recipe for Cookie Dough Dip, I knew I’d have to test it.

Easy Sweet Dip Recipe

There are gobs of dessert dip recipes around the web. This Dunkaroo Dip is basically 3 ingredients! Can you see why this category of sweets is so popular???

My cookie dough dip recipe is simple and fabulous.  Butter, cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla are mixed together, then Heath bar chunks and chocolate chips are added. I served this with Biscoff cookies and apple slices.

A group of our neighbors spent the weekend at a historic hotel south of Indianapolis, and I brought along this chocolate chip cookie dough dip for our midnight snack. My friends went nuts for this, so I bumped my favorite meatloaf off today’s post so you could enjoy, too!

This is one of the easiest desserts you’ll ever make! It’s just as appropriate for a girls’ night out as it is for game day (you need to balance out all those salty chips and dips!). Here are a couple hints for making this dessert dip.

  • Make sure your cream cheese and butter are at room temperature. It will be much easier to mix they’re not fresh from the refrigerator.
  • I like to buy whole Heath Bars and chop them myself. If you’d prefer, you can buy bagged toffee bits.
  • You can serve with any cookie to use as a dipper, vanilla wafers, chocolate wafers, even homemade cookies.
  • I also like to offer fruit slices for a slightly healthier option.

Here are some things you may need to make this easy dip recipe:

    Thanks for sharing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nice pic of you and your friends.!

  4. I had no idea something like cookie dip existed! It looks gorgeous and the idea of a double sweet treat (cookie+dip) is very appealing. Lovely photo!

  5. Oh Wow! I have given up sweets and alcohol for Lent. This is totally making me wish I hadn’t given up those sweets, man!

  6. Liz…you know how to put a smile on my face, as I could probably eat more cookie dough than cookies. This is my kind of treat!

  7. My Sister just was talking about a cookie dough dip, I will have to show her this recipe:-) It looks, and sounds way too yummy! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hugs, Terra

  8. Love the photo of you! Wow you all look relaxed and having fun!

    The dip sounds like the kids would really love this at a party…. I am sure.. I am not a fan of sweet dips but I would sure give this a dip… who can resist.. can you believe I have never eaten raw cookie dough ever… for you to eat it raw is telling me its time lol! must be great!

  9. Giving up cookie dough for lent? You must be incredibly strong! My favourite part of baking is sneaking extra spoonfullls of batter. I’ve never made a cookie dough dip before, but this sounds just like my thing. Yum!

  10. I never have cookie dough dip,but the whole plate looks so tempting ๐Ÿ™‚

  11. darn, I gain 5 pounds just reading your posts ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. Giving up cookie dough for Lent?
    I must try that, too. I’m sure it will be good for our waistline. Ah, I love food;-)

  13. I’m totally unlike you, Lizzie, I think I’ve never tasted anything while cooking or baking ๐Ÿ™‚
    PS love the bottom pic, you gals look very regal on that chair ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Lovely pic that you posted Lizzy. Just like your friends, I am also going nuts with this cookie dough dip. However, this is totally a new discovery to me and wow! something new on food to add to my knowledge.

  15. This is so much better than meatloaf! I think this would be so great for a kids or teens party, too.

  16. OMG, bookmarked! Totally making this over the weekend!

  17. I saw your tweet this morning for the Cookie Dough dip and I went to the store bought the heath bars and made the dip. Just waiting for the flavors to meld a little bit before I dip my cookies in. I have company coming soon so I thought I’d try the recipe first ๐Ÿ˜‰

  18. Now that is my kind of late night snack!

  19. I have been planning to make this dip for a long time – your delicious mouthwatering pictures are just egging me on ๐Ÿ˜€

  20. I adore cookie dough dip, but have not tried it with heath toffee, yum!

  21. Good move to bump meatloaf in favor of cookie dough. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Amazing, as always, Liz.

  22. When I first saw the title, I thought this would be a watery type thing, I was delighted to find it to be the sturdy texture that it is! Definitely something that would disappear quickly at a party. Tasty post!

  23. PS regarding the Google change, as far as I can see they still have not made a decision on if they will roll over friends if you are set up with blogger, so I am playing the waiting game. Hopefully they will.

  24. Love the photo of you and your friends! I’ve never had a sweet dip so I’m having trouble picturing whether or not I’d like it. But I wouldn’t insult you by not trying it at your party ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. Wow, I can see why this dip was a hit! I have never been big into eating cookie dough, but know a few people in my family that go nuts over it. In fact I freeze cookie dough in balls so Mr. Hubby can eat it straight out of the freezer. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ll save this one for our next gathering. Yum!

  26. I saw this recipe! It looks so fantastic and I love that it is egg-free.

  27. Oh YUMM! And the biscoff cookies are so, so enticing on top of that ๐Ÿ™‚ Great, enticing recipe.

  28. That cookie dough is one of the most unique and tempting things I’ve seen since I started to blog. It looks so delicious, like ice-cream and lovely presentation as always. You’re not only a versatile cook and baker, you’re extremely creative with your presentation as well.

  29. Cookie dough dip! Wow! What a wonderful idea and your presentation of it is just beautiful. Great item to serve at any gathering in my books.

  30. I have never made a dip like this…totally intrigued!
    Cool ladies..

  31. OMG what a killer and dangerous recipe. Who does not love eat cookie dough. The presentation is gorgeous too.

  32. Yum! This is one amazing cookie dough dip recipe, Lizzy! Have a great day!

  33. Good for you to find a cookie dough substitute!! I would definitely dig into this dip–although I must admit I have never eaten raw cookie dough. Are you gasping, Lizzy? Well, since I never really baked cookies there wasn’t much cookie dough around. LOL! I have not decided what I am going to give up yet for Lent… maybe what I need to give up is “laziness” and start exercising again. That would be a win-win. ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. holy cow, this looks AMAZING!!

  35. O-M-G!! I’m not one for raw cookie dough personally, so I’m glad you got ride of the eggs. Now I need to come up with a reason to make this where I won’t be the only one eating it! =)

  36. It looks like you had a great time with your girlfriends–and I love how this dip looks like an old-fashioned cheese ball! I’m sure it is very tasty…could be a good dish for an Oscars party this weekend.

  37. I honestly haven’t tried cookie dough dip! Poor me…can’t believe what I’ve been missing!

  38. Drooolll! This sounds amazing! I’ve been wanting to try a similar recipe since January (I’m a little behind)! But I love the heathbar addition, I need to get on making this stat!

  39. Oh my! This dip looks amazing, Lizzy! I think I could just eat it with a spoon!

  40. Oh, I so badly want to make this for Hubby. I made him get off the raw cookie dough thing when we got married because he has enough stomach issues already. This will enable him to have his cake and eat it too (per se). Thank you for improvising your Lenten season and coming up with this!

  41. love, love, love this, Liz. I’m a sucker for cookie dough!

  42. Hmm, I can see how this dip would delight! Lovely idea!

  43. Dip looks insane! Any excuse to eat cookie dough is a good one!

  44. Cookie dough dip would last five minutes here. Do you know I was in my 40’s when I learned that you could have what you gave up for Lent on Sundays? (Thanks to my savvy children) Gave up politics! And still thinking about giving up carbs… and love, love the sweet photo at the end! Just fun!

  45. Yum, yum, and yum! I could take a scoop of this each day as a special treat to myself. I think I would just go in with a spoon…not classy but I would do it without the friends part.

  46. And I thought that’s a cookie ice cream hahaha Delicious !!! Gorgeous presentation , too !

  47. Cookies dipped in cookie dough, sounds delicious. No flour and eggs in this one, I guess we can indulge without worrying about salmonella.
    BTW I misunderstood the eating between meals fasting, now I know what you meant. When I read it, it seems half of my brain cells were hibernating!

  48. Oh wow, now this is a recipe. I’m having a dinner party this weekend and I could see everyone gorging themselves on this. I’m printing this off now.

  49. hey dear..every day u made awesome and tsty recipes….ur clicks are awsome..i loved ur presentation..

  50. Giving up cookie dough, you are a brave woman! I would totally miss it! This dip sounds wonderful and glad you could indulge one last time before saying goodbye for 40 days :)!

  51. This is a wicked dip and I so want, to be wicked with it.

  52. Cookie dough you’re supposed to eat raw? Sounds wonderful to me! This is a great idea for a party. I can’t think of anyone would could resist cookie dough.

    Your waistline will probably be happy the next several weeks. Good luck!

  53. Lizzy, when I first saw the picture I was “no way” thinking that it was really cookie dough ๐Ÿ™‚
    This dip sure looks and sounds awesome…
    Hope you are having a wonderful week!

  54. Liz – as soon as I saw the post I knew it was your sacrifice! The dip look amazing and what delicious late night snack for you and your friends! Best of luck for the next 40 days!

  91. I believe cookie dough dip will have to be made when lots of people are coming over or I’d eat it all. I too love cookie dough. No eye rolling. ๐Ÿ™‚

  92. I’ve been thinking about you Liz, now that the Packers are out of the play, I’m so, so, so sorry. But at least you get your house back!
    JT always glares at me when I eat cookie dough…we did this all the time as kids (and maybe even every now and then) and never got sick. I’m afraid I would love this a little too much and there would be no one else to share it with.

  93. Yes please, this sounds like the perfect midnight snack to me!

  94. OK my comment is still there from 2012 lol, and I was still Cheap Ethnic Eatz, weird to see. And liek this recipe just as much now as I did back then. I feel I would need to pair with apples for a healthier option.

  95. I love the idea of using the cookie batter as a dip! Very original!

  96. Thanks for bringing this one back around – I need to try it for our next gathering. So easy and it sounds delicious. FUN!

  103. This looks like a huge crowd pleaser, Liz!
