If you love sneaking bites of cookie dough, this Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip is decadent and drool worthy. Serve it up with pretzels or apples and watch it disappear!
I’ve got an insane recipe for you today. Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip!
First, a disclaimer: this is not a ‘skinny’ recipe. There’s nothing low fat, low sugar or especially nutritious about it. Except in that it’s going to nourish your taste buds and your peanut butter loving soul.
This dip has it all: chocolate, peanut butter, cookie dough. All mixed together for the ultimate decadent scoopable dessert.
Why this Recipe Works
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!
I’m not sure I can do this peanut butter cookie dough dip justice through words alone. You have to taste it for yourself!
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.
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!
Yes, salted butter will work just fine in this peanut butter cookie dough dip recipe.
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.
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.
Yes, you can make this dip up to 2 days in advance. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve!
