Posted by  ·  October 4, 2018  ·  Last Updated: February 3, 2019
Look no further you have stumbled onto the BEST cookie dough dip.  The other night my friend Di made the most fabulous Monster Cookie Dough Dip! We couldn’t put it down and kept fighting over it! I don’t normally like a sweet dip, but this one is irresistible! You will also want to try her Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip.

Cookie Dough Dip

At our house, we love raw cookie dough. I know I know…. you are not supposed to eat it because of the raw eggs.  I must admit we still do. This egg free cookie dough dip is the perfect solution.

This makes a ton! I divided it in half and wrapped one half in plastic wrap forming a ball and put it in the freezer. Now I will have a Monster Cookie Dough Cheese Ball for later. I will just need to thaw.

Read all the comments and you will see this cookie dough dip recipe is a huge hit! I actually think it tastes better than just plain chocolate chip cookie dough. If you want to give it even more candy flavor and make it over the top how about adding in toffee bits1?! I love this dip served with graham sticks but animal crackers would also be delicious. If you like a sweet and salty combo try pretzels.

Tips for Making this chocolate chip cookie dough dip recipe:

  • Use softened butter and cream cheese that has been softened to room temperature before mixing up this dip. This will ensure a smooth creamy mixture that is evenly incorporated.
  • I do think mini chocolate chips and mini m&m’s make it easier to eat.
  • This dip freezes beautifully, remove from freezer to refrigerator overnight. Allow to sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes before serving.
  • If dip has been in the refrigerator allow some time at room temp so it is easy to scoop onto the dippers!
  • A hand mixer or stand mixer is a must for getting the dip super creamy before folding in the oatmeal, chocolate chips and mini m&m’s.

I know you are really going to like this dessert dip.  If you have allergy concerns please read the comments. People have been so helpful with substitution ideas so everybody can enjoy!

      I think it would be plenty for 20 people.

    Just made this. I didn't have m&m's but had marshmallows. My kids LOVED it. The salty of the pretzel compliments the sweet of the dip. I also used crunchy natural peanut butter. So yummy. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    So, I can bake these, right? I love Casey's convenience store's monster cookies so I'm really glad you posted this! Thanks!

      Erica, since these don't have eggs and baking soda not sure how they would bake up. This version is meant to eat raw.

    Tina - I'm allergic to wheat, peanuts, and soy. It's a fun combo; but, I make it with sunbutter (sunflower seed butter).

    Lucy - if you aren't soy sensitive try using a soy based cream cheese.

    I've had a lot of luck with swapping things in and out of this. I really like using craisins and white chocolate chips in it instead of the chocolate chips.

    How can u make this dip without cream cheese? Like what could be the substitute?

      For those of you wanting a cream cheese free version. I almost wonder if it can be left out. Has anyone tried this?
  10. Wednesday, May 28th, 2014
    Love me some cookie dough! Looks amazing!

    I wonder if it would taste nice if you left out the oats and then swirled it through icecream?

    This may be a silly question but do I cook the oats? I'm trying to make this right now and I'm afraid to mess it up.
    • Cindy
      Thursday, October 4th, 2018
      Nope Victoria don't cook the oats. If you want a softer oat use quick cooking oats. I like a bit more texture so I use regular oats.

    Looks good can't wait to try. Is this your original recipe? I thought I seen this somewhere else.

    Okay, what did I do wrong when I made this? I followed the directions and just the flavor of cream cheese (which I really can't stand). No cookie dough flavor that I love so much. Just PB cups mixed into a cream cheese block that now contains brown sugar. Please give my dumb self some guidance!
    • Tuesday, November 12th, 2013
      I am sorry that it wasn't to your liking. I don't think you are doing anything wrong, it may be that you don't like cream cheese? I soften it all and mix it well- it's been a hit at every party! THanks for stopping by.

  20. Sunday, October 21st, 2012

    Great for a weekend of camping! I made it the first time with low-fat cream cheese and the second time with regular... both are FABULOUS! Out camping, one of the others said "soften some vanilla ice cream, put in a little chocolate syrup and mix the dip in... instant Blizzard! EXTRA FABULOUS!

    I couldn't find graham cracker sticks, so I used animal crackers... everyone liked those too.

    Thanks for a SUPER EASY, SUPER FABULOUS recipe!

    I absolutely love this recipe!! It is so yummy. Made it last week for a lady's get-together and they devoured it. The pregnant ladies were hesitant til I told them there were no eggs in it. And then they scarfed it down. Thanks so much for sharing. I shared it on our cooking blog cookingwithwillinghands.wordpress.com

    DE-LISH!! You'll have to try a similar recipe with garbanzo beans- *healthier* than this recipe (with no dairy), but tastes EXACTLY the same as cookie dough!! Google "chocolate chip cookie dessert hummus"

    I have become obsessed with making cookie dough dips... I've made chocolate chip cookie dough dip, choc. chip and heath bits cookie dough dip, cake batter dip, brownie batter dip... I'm always on the look out for new ones to take to parties, so I was obviously thrilled when I saw this picture!

    However... I'm allergic to all nuts (so almond butter isn't an option)... I also can't stand sun butter, at least in things like sandwiches... would it work (be less noticeable) in a recipe like this? Or...any other ideas on a substitute instead of peanut butter?

    I made this and froze half of it into little cookie dough balls. I think eating them frozen is better than eating it as a dip! Will definitely make again :)

    This looks so yummy and sinful! I have never thought to use cookie dough as a dip. The addition of the candy just puts it over the top. I am a new Twitter follower visiting from Tatertots and Jello. Vicky from Mess For Less

    ooh! I think Sunbutter would be fabulous instead of almond butter. We prefer that far more than almond butter when recipes call for PB and we cant have it.

    I made this! http://www.somethingswanky.com/2012/01/monster-cookie-dough-dip.html

    I used a little bit of flour too, and I think that helped taste a little more like cookie dough-- you'll have to try next time :)

    ...like it's not already addictive enough!

    Oh my good grief! This is not what I needed to see first thing in the morning!!! Is it bad that I'm whipping this up now under the plan of freezing it for my party this weekend (OBVIOUSLY not because I want to try it before I freeze it...)
    • Tuesday, February 21st, 2012
      Hi Supahmama,

      I am sure if you are making it for this weekend there is not need to freeze (unless to keep you from eating hehe)
