This recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough dip needs to be a staple in every household. It’s loaded with flavor and comes together in under 5 minutes!
In my former life, I used to own a bakery. It seems like forever ago and yet I can still remember how frantic and chaotic those years were. They were also filled with trying to create or find recipes that were easy and could be made ahead.
Cookie Dough Dip was like hitting that jackpot as a bakery owner. And trust me, there were not many jackpots to be won under that title!
We could whip up giant batches of this easy dessert in about 5 minutes total. The best part was that not only could it be made in ahead, it actually tasted better when you did! It’s one of those amazing recipes that is even more flavorful the next day, because all the ingredients have had time to meld together.
This also makes it perfect to take to a party or holiday meal. Throw it together the night before, and no more running around frantically right as you’re about to walk out the door because your cookies are still in the oven. Or is that just me??
In fact, if we’re talking about easy and working ahead, my Hoagie Dip is another perfect choice to take to a party. You can cut and dice all your ingredients the night before and throw it together. Right before you leave, just toss in the chopped lettuce, grab your cookie dough dip and you will be the star of the party.
Seriously. I have never once taken these two recipes somewhere and not been asked for the recipe. They’re addicting. Like ranch pretzel addicting… which is huge. I mean, that’s like the standard, right??
Sometimes I make a reeeally sweet dessert like chocolate caramel cupcakes and the girls love them, but they’re too much for most of the guys. Or I make my jalapeno corn fritters and half the room devours them while they other half declares them too spicy.
But cookie dough dip… cookie dough dip is loved by all. Kids, people who prefer salty, those with a sweet tooth… nobody can resist a scoop or 12 of this dip.

How Do You Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
The key to making this dessert dip is really pretty easy- make sure your cream cheese and butter are both at room temperature. If they aren’t softened properly, you’ll get little lumps throughout your dip.
I try to remember to set mine on the kitchen counter an hour or so before I need to make it. This really depends on the temperature of your house, but if I can press my finger into it and it leaves a thumbprint, then it’s good to go!
If you’re pressed for time, you can always soften them in the microwave too. Just make sure to check it every 7 seconds or so, because you do NOT want to melt it! You just want it soft.
Once it’s time to mix your ingredients together, you can easily use a stand mixer or a handheld mixer. Sometimes I’ve even just stirred it with a spoon! It’s not a finicky recipe! Just make sure it’s well-blended and you’re good to go!
Is it Safe to Eat Cookie Dough?
Ahh, the age old question, right?! Fortunately, this doesn’t even really come into play with this recipe. There are no raw eggs or even flour in this recipe, so you can put your fears aside!
Cookie dough dip is completely safe to eat and you can feed it to your kids without any worries!
