Reese's Cup Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dessert Dip

Yes, you read that correctly—this recipe is for a Reese's Cup chocolate chip cookie dough dessert dip! The name is a mouthful to say, and the dessert dip is a tasty mouthful of flavors, especially when served with mini pretzels for a bit of salty crunch. Quick and easy to make, this dip is sure to be a smash hit.

You can chop Reese's Cups yourself or buy mini baking Reese's Cups.

Ingredients

The title is long, but basically everything you need for Reese's Cup chocolate chip cookie dough dip is in the name! Here are the ingredients you need:

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 8 oz (1 regular package) of cream cheese, softened at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup mini, semisweet morsels
  • 2 or more Reese's cups, or 1/2 cup Reese's baking pieces

Instructions

1. Place the stick of butter and the brown sugar in a frying pan or skillet. Heat over low to medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until butter is melted and both butter and sugar are slightly browned.

2. Meanwhile, place the softened cream cheese and white sugar in a medium bowl. Cream them together with an electric mixer or fork. An electric mixer is easier, but a fork will do the job as long as you provide sweat equity.

3. Add the melted butter/brown sugar combination to the cream cheese and white sugar. Add the vanilla as well.

4. Throughly combine the ingredients. You can use your electric mixer again, but you can also use a whisky fairly easily because the warm butter makes the cream cheese easier to stir.

Whisk until throughly combined.

5. After the other ingredients are thoroughly combined, fold in the mini chocolate chips with a spatula, soon, or whisk. Lastly, carefully fold in your chopped Reese's Cup or other peanut butter baking chips. Make sure to mix the chocolate chips in first because they are harder and more durable. Peanut butter cups can't stand up to lots of stirring!

6. This is the most difficult step—waiting. If possible, transfer the dip to its intended serving container. It is easier to move now while it is warm. I like to use my Tovolo silicone spatula for tasks like this because it is literally the best spatula I've ever used! You won't waste any of your dip by leaving it behind in the mixing bowl if you use a Tovolo spatula. Cover the dip with plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for at least an hour to allow the flavors to meld. If you taste it right now, it will probably seem warm and strange. Quite honestly, I was slightly bummed when I tasted it right after mixing it up because just sort of tasted like warm cream cheese with chunks of chocolate. When you let it cool and meld, something magical happens and this dessert dip transforms into a magical culinary experience!

Dessert Dip Ideas

This dip is amazing with pretzels, graham crackers, apple slices, or just off the spoon. It also goes pretty well on waffles, bagels, and even toast. It keeps well for a several days in the fridge, making it the perfect fix-ahead dip for a party or game day. Plus, let's be realistic, the guests at your next gathering will be much more enthusiastic about cookie dough dip than anything with spinach in it! This is especially true if you serve your pretzels up in chocolate bowls. Who doesn't want a chocolate bowl?

As always, please let me know if you have any questions about making this dip. I am more than happy to help out.

Do you have any 'cheat says?' If so, this could be the perfect way to indulge!

This looks so good. Though 2013 has brought us a joint health kick, my husband and I just may have to try this soon!

Natasha (author) from Hawaii on March 14, 2013:

Thanks Kasman! It isn't exactly health food, but it is tasty and easy.

Kas from Bartlett, Tennessee on March 14, 2013:

Man, this is probably something I shouldn't eat but I think I have to try it! Looks great, and includes one of my favorite things ever.....peanut butter cups! Great job on the hub and voting this up Natashalh.

Natasha (author) from Hawaii on March 14, 2013:

It's not quite as shocking as you might think. You can always leave the peanut butter cups out, if you're worried.

Maren Elizabeth Morgan from Pennsylvania on March 14, 2013:

It sounds like a complex taste experience!

Natasha (author) from Hawaii on March 14, 2013:

Excellent - please do! Thanks for stopping in.

Rose Clearfield from Milwaukee, Wisconsin on March 14, 2013:

You had me at Reese's! My mouth is watering now. I have seen cookie dough dips before, but this is my favorite. I will let you know if I give it a try.

Natasha (author) from Hawaii on March 14, 2013:

I hadn't heard of it, either, until. I saw a pin for a dessert dip a little while ago. Being me, I instantly saw some ways to 'improve it' and make it even tastier! I hope you enjoy it when you get the chance to try it out.

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on March 14, 2013:

Never heard of it, seen it or tasted it, but I want some right now. I love Reeses....thank you for this and you can bet I'll be trying it.

Natasha (author) from Hawaii on March 14, 2013:

Thank you! I should have brought it to work for sharing, but I ultimately ate all of the batch shown in this tutorial!

Devika Primić from Dubrovnik, Croatia on March 14, 2013:

Incredible! Such a lovely choice of ingredients and looks so good too.
