If you love cookie dough, you are going to absolutely love this quick and easy cookie dough dip.

This time of year, I love to have delicious dip recipes for serving when we get together with family and friends, tailgating events, and the holidays. I knew I needed something in addition to my usual spiced caramel apple dip and immediately knew I’d make this dip, but with a little bit of a change.

The Best Cookie Dough Dip Recipe

Oh my heavens!

It was delicious before with just the chocolate chips, but with the little something-something that I added it is out of this world!

Wanna know what I added?

Toffee bits!

That little bit of crunch and toffee flavor tipped this already delicious dip right on over to out of this world!

I’ve served my cookie dough dip with chocolate graham crackers, honey graham crackers and apple and pear wedges. But y’all, this dip would be heavenly just licking it straight off the spoon. You just need a cracker or apple slice to look dignified while you are gobbling it up. So, the choice is really yours on what you serve with this dip.

Here’s how I make it.

Toss in your chocolate chips. I personally like to use milk chocolate chips, but you can decide which you prefer the best.

I think dark chocolate chips are my second favorite, followed by semi-sweet.

But go with your favorite.

And then some of these little babies.

They give this dip that extra little bit of something to take it from great to Oh My Stars!!!

Mix it all together until well-combined and then watch out.

I think it is the best cookie dough dip in all the land.

You really do need to make this stuff soon. Do note that it does contain cream cheese and therefore the taste is not like taking a big heaping spoonful of cookie dough from the mixing bowl when making cookies. It does taste out of this world delicious though.

I promise!

Here’s the recipe for the BEST Cookie Dough Dip! I highly recommend bookmarking this baby or printing for your recipe box so that you can make it again and again and again! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. This is incredible!!! If I could only have one sweet dish for the rest of my life, this would be it! Thanks for sharing!!

  2. Maybe try switching your cream cheese to one of those brands and see if it works better for you. For those who love sweet and salty taste try using Ritz Crackers with the dip! It still turned out amazing! wow !!

    1. Oooh Latisha! I LOVE the idea of using Ritz crackers for that sweet and salty taste! I’m definitely trying that next. I bet pretzel chips would be good, too.

  4. Hi! I tried this today and it was very tasty! However, I thought the cream cheese flavor was a little overbearing, (I think it’s just my personal taste though, my family loved it) This may seem like a dumb question, the obvious solution would be to just add less cream cheese, however I’m not very good at making food so I’m wondering if I added 6oz instead of 8 would that throw the whole recipe off?

    1. Hi Sandra, I’m so glad everyone liked this! It is a favorite of ours! I don’t believe it will majorly change the recipe to reduce the cream cheese a touch. You may want to increase the amount of confectioner’s sugar to make sure you have the right consistency. You also may want to try refrigerating the dip overnight as I’ve noticed that reduces the cream cheese flavor a good deal.

      Let me know how it turns out! I can’t wait to hear!

      1. I didn’t like the “bite” from the cream cheese that I still tasted using this recipe so I added more of both sugars and a little more vanilla. Adding more brown sugar gave it the raw cookie dough taste an texture (gritty like). You just need to taste and add when you get it all combined ( but before Heath chips and chocolate chips). Just my thoughts…. But this is a new fave of our nonetheless!!! Thanks for sharing!!!

  5. Hi Robyn,

    You show this recipe with graham crackers. What else would you use as the “vehicle” to get this delish stuff to your mouth?


    1. Hi Nickie!
      I like to use any number of different “vehicles” depending on my mood at the time. One of my favorites though are crisp apple slices. YUM!
      Other ideas are pretzels, vanilla wafers, or other types of cookies. Really though, a spoon works pretty well! LOL!

  6. I just wanted to let you know I did a review of this recipe on my blog, I linked everyone to this site to get the recipe….! I love it and will be making this over and over again for different events!

  8. I want to make this because My boyfriend loveS cookie dough but he hates a lot of chocolate (white, milk, dark) but he can do the heath bar bits. What would be a good replacement for the chocolate chips?

    1. Hi Brittany, you could change the chocolate chips out with peanut butter chips. Some days I wish I didn’t like chocolate nearly as much as I do! ๐Ÿ™‚

  9. I’m thinking about making this. What should I eat with this dip? The picture shows chocolate graham crackers but is there anything else?

    1. Hi Alex, I like to eat crisp apples, graham crackers – chocolate or regular, or even animal crackers are delicious. I can’t wait to hear how you like it!

    1. Hi Monica,
      You definitely can make it the night before. I think it actually allows the flavors to deepen just a bit. Be sure to keep it tightly covered or in an airtight container. I hope you enjoy it!

  10. Saw this on pinterest. Made it for Easter. Served with apples, bananas, graham crackers, and grapes. Delicious!!!

    1. YAH! I’m so glad you liked it, Linda. Love that you served it with all sorts of fruit, too. It really is scrumptious with fruit, I think.

  11. 5 Thumbs up! This dip is spoonworthy! But if not using just a spoon, chocolate graham crackers are the best! I recently took it to a scrapbooking weekend where they give a prize for the best homemade snack…guess who won??!!!

  13. I made this the other night and did not read about the reduced fat cream cheese. Well I bought 1/3 less fat (NOT fat free!) and there were NO issues!
    With that in mind, the calories for the whole recipe is 4417. I estimated about a total of 3 1/2 cups made. per tablespoon.. 70 calories. Way less than I thought!

  14. Hello….I live in Australia, do we have something like the toffee bits here? I have never seen anything like it before….Help???

    1. If you can’t find the toffee bits in the baking isle beside the chocolate chips, then you can use a Heath candy bar and just crunch it up!!

  15. Hey I just found this recipe on Pinterest a few days ago and decided to try it last night. I was disappointed that it didn’t taste like cookie dough. Not in the least. I used full fat Philadelphia Cream Cheese, and real butter. It’s good, but it’s not cookie dough. ๐Ÿ™ So sad…..

  17. i suggest serving with vanilla wafers – the vanilla in the cookie really helped masked the final bit of “cream cheese” taste. i also added more sugar and vanilla, small batches at a time, until i got it a little sweeter. i’m not crazy for that cream cheese taste, so i wanted to mask it a bit more. like everybody above, when i brought this to a party people went crazy! i doubled the recipe and it still went!

    1. So glad you all loved it, Sheila! It has definitely been one of those well-loved recipes around here, too! Thanks so much for letting me know.

  18. Just made this and it was delish! It tasted a bit too buttery though. I used salted butter – could that be the culprit?

  19. Omg this cookie dough dip is so amazing! I first had it at my friends house at a forth of july get together. I am 11 weeks pregnant and once I started eating it with apples I could not stop I think I sat in front of the bowl the rest of the night!

    1. Hi Kara! I’m so glad you like it. Congratulations on your baby. How exciting!!! I have to tell you though. I’m NOT 11 weeks pregnant and have been caught a time or two sitting in front of a bowl of that stuff. I have to give it away or I eat it ALL!

  21. Yum! I’ve had this on my Pinterest list for way too long, and I finally made it today to take over to a friend’s house for dessert. It was a hit with the adults AND kids! I took animal crackers and chocolate graham crackers for dipping, and I’m still not sure if I like dipping things in it or just eating it by the spoonful better! There were six adults and six kids, and this made plenty for everyone (plus extra that is dangerously sitting five feet away from me in my fridge right now!). Thanks for the recipe – I’ll definitely be making it again! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. I’m so glad y’all loved it. It is seriously addictive! I have a variation that I just made that I think you may also like. Actually, it posts in the morning. YUM!

  22. This stuff was amazing!!!! The toffee bits really made the dip! I’m not a chocolate chip fan so I left those out and added walnuts! So good!!! I tried them with the chocolate graham crackers and it was a little bland so I switched to the apples and man o’ man… Flavor explosion!! So good!! Thx for the recipe!!

  23. Couple quick questions. I totally want to make this for a pot luck wondering though. Can it be made the night before and refigerated?? Also wondering I can’t find chocolate graham crackers. Okay to use original graham crackers?

    1. Hi Kim,
      Absolutely – it really tastes even better the next day after being in the refrigerator overnight. It gives it longer for all the flavors to meld together. Yes! Regular graham crackers work just fine with this dip. I also like to serve it with apple or pear slices, pretzels, or a Biscoff cookie. Oh my gosh! Now, I’m craving it! Hope you enjoy it!

  24. love this. I used the chocolate toffee bits and added a splash of lime juice and I plain to make this and put it in a graham cracker pie crust for Thanksgiving. Yum
