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:
- 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!
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!
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!

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip
- ½ cup unsalted butter
- ½ cup light brown sugar packed
- ¼ cup creamy peanut butter
- 8 oz cream cheese softened
- ¾ cup powdered sugar
- ½ cup semi sweet mini chocolate chips
- 8 ounce Reese's peanut butter cup Minis or about 1 1/2 cup chopped Reeses cups
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter and whisk in the brown sugar and peanut butter. Heat until sugar dissolves (about one minute). Remove from heat immediately and allow to cool to room temperature (very important).
- In a large mixing bowl, beat cream cheese with powdered sugar until creamy (about 3-4 minutes, don’t skimp on the beating time). On low, add in brown sugar mixture (that has cooled to room temperature). Mix until combined.
- Fold in mini chocolate chips and mini Reese’s cups. Serve immediately or store in refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy with pretzels, animal cracker and graham sticks.
- 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!
