Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip tastes like cookie dough and is totally safe to eat. Easy no bake recipe. Whip up a batch of this chocolate chip cookie dough dip and enjoy as a yummy dip or alone with a spoon!
I love to eat chocolate chip cookie dough by the spoonful. I know we aren’t supposed to eat raw cookie dough, but I’m a bit of a risk taker.
And I’m not the only one who enjoys eating cookie dough straight up. Edible cookie dough has become increasingly popular recently, and there’s even been a surge of edible cookie dough bars popping up all over the country. But at $8-$12 a pint, it’s also extremely pricey!

How to Make Cookie Dough Dip

Tips and Tricks
- You can customize your mix-ins for this cookie dough to your tastes. I prefer using milk chocolate chips and mini milk chocolate chips, because that’s how I make my chocolate chip cookies, but you could just as easily add in white chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, butterscotch chips, nuts, or candy bits like sprinkles, M&M’s or Reese’s Pieces. Whatever mix-ins you like in your baked cookies is probably what you will like in this cookie dough dip.
- Some cookie dough dips call for raw flour, which can be heat treated for extra caution. This recipe doesn’t use flour, so it’s one less step and no need to worry about food safety.
- Since this recipe doesn’t have raw eggs, it is safe to eat as is, but don’t try to bake this dough into cookies. If you have a craving for baked cookies, check out all of my cookie recipes. There are many to choose from and they are absolutely delicious!
You can make this cookie dough dip in advance and store it in the refrigerator for up to five days.
If you store it in the fridge, let it sit out at room temperature for about 30 minutes before eating it since it tends to firm up in the refrigerator. Then your dip will be creamy and spreadable.
You can also freeze this recipe for about three months if you want to save it for later. When you’re ready to eat it, let it thaw completely before eating.
This is one of my favorite dessert recipes to bring with me to a party. You can also have it as a dessert or a sweet afternoon snack. Here are some things you can serve with it/use for dippers:
Crackers- Animal crackers, graham crackers, even club crackers go great with this cookie dough dip!
Pretzels- Whether you choose pretzel sticks, pretzel thins, or pretzel twist, you’ll love that sweet/salty taste.
Cookies- Oreos, Nilla Wafers, Butter Cookies, and Nutter Butters are all great “dippers” for this sweet spread.
Fruit- Apple slices and strawberries are our favorite fruits to pair with today’s cookie dough dip recipe.
A Spoon- Simple. Rustic. Perfect.
