Why You Should Make This Dessert 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. So it’s no surprise a cookie dough dip recipe is right up my alley.

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 Cream Cheese Chocolate Chip Dip, I knew I’d have to test it. Here are some reasons you should make this cookie dough dip:

  • There are no raw eggs like in standard cookie dough, so it’s safe to eat.
  • The raw flour can be cooked so it is safe to eat, too. It can contain e-coli bacteria which can bring on very unpleasant symptoms.
  • PRO-Tip: Spread your flour on a baking sheet and place in a preheated 350º oven for 5 minutes. The flour should reach 160º which is hot enough to kill the bacteria.
  • It’s absolutely irresistible and tastes a heck of a lot like chocolate chip cookie dough!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Cookie Dough Dip Healthy?

We make it healthier to eat than regular cookie dough by eliminating the chance of food poisoning from raw eggs or raw flour. But it’s a high-calorie, high fat treat, so it’s not considered healthy, just safer.

How Do You Make Cookie Dough Safe to Eat?

Do not use raw eggs in your dip. Instead, the combination of cream cheese, butter, sugar, and vanilla comes close to the texture of raw dough. Do not use raw flour. This cookie dough dip doesn’t contain flour, but this is another reason not to indulge in regular cookie dough. But this cookie dough dip IS safe.

PRO-Tip: If wanting to eat regular cookie dough, cooking the flour first will make it safe. Spread your flour on a baking sheet and place it in a preheated 350º oven for 5 minutes. The flour should reach 160º which is hot enough to kill the bacteria.

What to Serve with Chocolate Chip Dip?

Cookies make great dippers. Biscoff cookies, vanilla wafers, graham crackers, chocolate chip cookies and more will work well. Firm fruit like apples can be sliced for a healthy dipping option.

How to Store Cookie Dough Dip?

With cream cheese as an ingredient, cookie dough dip should not be left out at room temperature longer than 2 hours. After that, cover and keep in the refrigerator.

It should freeze well, though I haven’t tested it. Freeze up to 2 months in an airtight container, and defrost overnight in the refrigerator.

How Long Does a Dessert Dip Last?

As long as there is no double-dipping going on, which could contaminate the dip, it should be safe to consume for up to 4 days. Note that if it was left at room temperature for longer than 2 hours, it should be tossed.

Can You Add Other Ingredients?

Yes, this recipe is easily adaptable. Replace the toffee bits with M&Ms or other small candies, sprinkles, or even crushed cookies. Just use your imagination!

How to Make This Chocolate Chip Dip

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???

This cookie dough recipe is simple and fabulous. 

  1. Blend soft butter and cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla until smooth.
  2. Add Heath bar chunks and chocolate chips, and stir by hand to combine.
  3. Serve with Biscoff cookies and apple slices.

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!). 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 it, too!

Here are a couple of 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. Graham crackers, vanilla wafers, chocolate wafers, even homemade cookies will work.
  • I also like to offer sturdy fruit slices like apples or pears for a slightly healthier option. And if you’re a sweet and salty fan, try pretzel knots or snaps!
