Why this Recipe Works

I’ve got an insane recipe for you today. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip!

This dip has it all:

  • chocolate
  • peanut butter
  • cookie dough

All mixed together for the ultimate decadent scoopable dessert.

Peanut butter cookie dough dip gets its soft, creamy texture from cream cheese. Beaten with powdered sugar, it provides the perfect base the Reese’s bits and chocolate chips.

You end up with an amazing contrast of smooth and chunky textures to deliver all that great chocolate-peanut butter flavor to your mouth.

Scoop it up with pretzels and graham crackers or Nilla wafers. It takes a lot of willpower to resist just digging into the bowl with a spoon!

If you can’t resist eating the cookie dough when making Peanut Butter Cookies, this dip is created for you!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients needed to make Reese's peanut butter cookie dough dip.

Chances are you have most of these ingredients already in your pantry! Stock up some Reese’s and you’ll be ready in minutes.

Peanut butter. Smooth creamy peanut butter works best.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I used the mini peanut butter cups. Full sized Reese’s chopped into bite sized chunks will work too.

Chocolate chips. I prefer the texture of mini chocolate chips in the dip, however regular chocolate chips are fine if that’s all you have.

Cream Cheese. Make sure it’s softened first!

Step by step ingredients to make peanut butter cookie dough dip.

Tips and Tricks

  • Light brown sugar is best to keep the dip a lighter color and help the peanut butter flavor shine through. You mix this with peanut butter and butter while warming on the stove.
  • Let the butter mixture cool completely while you beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar. Only add the butter mixture to the cream cheese once its fully cooled.
  • Add Reese’s and mini chips at the end. Be sure all the other dip ingredients are well combined, before mixing in the candies.
  • Serve immediately OR store in the fridge. It’s delicious room temperature or chilled!

Recipe FAQs

Can I use salted butter instead of unsalted butter?

Yes, salted butter will work just fine in this peanut butter cookie dough dip recipe.

Why is my Cookie Dough Dip a darker color?

The dip may turn out darker if you use dark brown sugar. If the brown sugar mixture is still warm when you beat it into the dip, it will also cause the chocolate to melt into the dip a bit. This can result in a darker brown color.

What do you serve with cookie dough dip?

This Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip is amazing with all kinds of dippers. Pretzels, animal crackers and graham crackers are my favorite! Nilla wafers and apples are delicious choices too.

Can this recipe be made ahead of time?

Yes, you can make this dip up to 2 days in advance. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve!

Comments & Reviews

  1. If you cut up the Reese’s peanut butter cups into smaller chunks (or pieces), you could use this as an icing on a CAKE!!

  2. I’m ALWAYS ready for butter, chocolate and Reese’s, no exceptions! I love this because while I grew up eating cookie dough and still do, I don’t let me kids do it. It’s like once you read something is dangerous, you can’t unread it. It’s too late for me (that’s what I tell myself as I gorge on dough), but I keep them away from it, so this is a great dessert to share the experience still.

  3. OMG! I am over skinny things too! Why not indulge myself and reece peanut butter cup is my daughter’s favourite too. So making the dip this weekend!! thank you.

  4. I just came across this on facebook. Unfortunately for me, I have little self-control and will soon be making these to satisfy my appetite. Thanks for sharing this.

  5. Hi I really wanted to make this. It looks amazing but reading through the directions it says to melt the butter and whisk in the sugar, but there wasn’t a measurement for sugar. Just powdered and brown. But both of those are used later just wondering what the sugar amount you used was. Thanks love your recipes

    1. To the butter, you’ll add the brown sugar. Later in the recipe you add the powdered sugar. ENJOY 🙂

  6. Making this right now for the wife and friends, and i hope after we eat it all we aren’t in a diabetic coma for too long lol. Worth it!!!!!!

  7. I made this for my co-workers last week. It was a MAJOR hit, spread on animal crackers, craham crakers or even straight out of the bowl. Thank you for this recipe

  8. I think it tastes too much like cream cheese I thought with all the sugar and peanut butter it would be hidden. My bf loves peanut butter and tried to taste test it with a spoon and just said it doesn’t taste like somethings wrong it just tastes like cream cheese.

  9. I have made this dip before and LOVE it. Always a big hit. Was wondering if I could use salted butter and everything turn out fine? I just bought a huge thing and don’t want to go buy more. Thanks!

  10. Mine didn’t look anything like your picture, but it was still amazingly delicious! I made a half batch so I wouldn’t feel so bad if my husband and I ate it all. 😉

  11. Made this for a cook out and it was delish! Everyone devoured it within seconds. Looked exactly like yours! Thanks for the awesome recipe!

  12. Fun recipe. I made this for a party using dark brown sugar, since I didn’t have any light, and a bit less butter (5T), and a bit less powdered sugar. It came out just like the photo, only a bit darker (due to the dark brown sugar). Other recipes don’t call for melting the brown sugar, which results in a gritty texture – more like cookie dough, but I like the creamy consistency of this recipe. I served it with pretzels and animal crackers, but pretzels were preferred. Both kids and adults ate this stuff up! Next time, I might use the mini peanut butter cups from whole foods – they are a bit smaller than the Reese’s brand and size-wise would pair better with the mini chips. For me, this was a bit too rich (serving with pretzels helps with that), but it sure got gobbled up by the masses. Thanks for such a great recipe!!
