Our Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip came about one day because of something terrible I saw at the store. I just can’t wrap my head around it!

I was shopping at a certain warehouse store one day. You know the one, it’s huge, everything is bought in bulk and although you only went in for toilet paper you left having tried 50 samples, bought half of the stuff and you really didn’t need any of it. Ahem, salted chocolate covered caramels and taquitos, how did you get in my cart?! And, AND!!!!!! You somehow spent $500!

Where did that come from?! I’m pretty sure there were only 5 items in this huge cart, but there goes my money!!!

Focus, Focus, Focus

Ok, so there I am, pushing that big ol’ cart around when out of the corner of my eye I see something that stops me in my tracks. I was just approaching the section of soups, pesto, pasta and hummus, you know what I’m talking about here, and I see the most atrocious thing ever, Cookie Dough Hummus. 


Not just cookie dough hummus, but brownie batter hummus too! YOU GUYS!!! What is happening here? (Side note, “I see what’s happening here…” from Moana is now running through my mind. Not only am I a food blogger, mom and shopper, but apparently I’m also 6 years old.)

Who eats cookie dough hummus?!

Cookie Dough Hummus

I’m seriously so confused. And no, no I did not buy it just out of curiosity. I couldn’t even make eye contact with it! 

Do you eat it with cookies? Or treat it like hummus and pita/veggie it up?

I’m bothered. 

I’m disturbed. 

I am making real easy chocolate chip cookie dough dip when I get home. And I did. 


Easy Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

I really had no choice. Don’t you agree? I had to get rid of that image in my head and that weird flavor trying to creep into my mouth. 

This easy chocolate chip cookie dough dip is the real deal minus the eggs which could possibly kill you.

All you need to make this dessert dip is:

  • Butter
  • Cream Cheese
  • Vanilla
  • Powdered Sugar
  • Mini Chocolate Chips

Death By Cookie Dough

By the way, the eggs have never stopped me from eating cookie dough. In fact,  growing up my sister, who was much older and could drive when I was still in Elementary school, would trade me, she’d pick up a Blockbuster if I’d make the cookie dough.

Done and Done. 

If that’s the way I’m going to die, let it be so. In fact, I want the word spread that I was really happy and alone, and watching Netflix. 

Actually, ugh that’s horribly morbid. I’m not ready to go. Let’s keep eating the cookie dough with fingers crossed. 

Can You Use Neufchatel Cheese In Place of Cream Cheese?

This is the age old question isn’t it, can you substitute low fat, or Neufchatel cream cheese in place of regular cream cheese?

Heck yes, buddy! American Cream Cheese and American Neufchâtel can be used interchangeably!

Neufchatel cheese has a smooth texture and it tastes like cream cheese, so there’s no issue there for sure. 

Neufchatel has less fat and calories than cream cheese which means you just got to take a double spoonful.

Is Powdered Sugar the Same As Confectioner’s Sugar?

If you ever watch the Great British Baking Show you hear them use all sorts of names for different sugars. So is powdered sugar the same as confectioner’s sugar? 

Yes, you bet! Confectioners’ sugar and powdered sugar are the same thing.

Confectioners’ sugar, or powdered sugar is granulated sugar that has been ground to a fine powder.

In fact….

What to Use if You Don’t Have Powdered Sugar

Oh man, I hate when I’m short just one stinking ingredient! If you don’t have powdered sugar you can actually make it! 

Stick sugar in a blender and let it fly until you’ve got confectioner’s sugar.

Are Vanilla Wafers Gluten Free? 

It’s always a tricky thing when a crowd is coming for a party. You want to be sure there’s something for everyone which these days involves watching out for allergies. Vanilla wafers are made with wheat flour, so unfortunately Vanilla wafers are not gluten free.

But don’t worry, head down the gluten free section and you can find plenty of substitutes. 

Vanilla Wafers

Actually, did you know they are actually called, Nilla Wafers? “The more you know…”

easy cream cheese dip that tastes like cookie dough!


  • 1/4 Cup Butter unsalted
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 8 oz Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Cup Chocolate Chips semisweet mini


  • In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and continue to cook until just starting to brown.
  • Remove from heat and pour into another bowl to cool.
  • Beat the cream cheese, brown sugar and powdered sugar for 1 minute, or until smooth.
  • Add in the vanilla and beat again.
  • Slowly beat in the cooled butter mixture and beat again for another minute or until all ingredients are properly combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Place in the fridge to set.
  • Serve with Vanilla Wafers or Graham crackers.


When you pull out the dip it will be pretty solid so make sure to remove it from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before you plan on serving it. This way it has time to soften up and guests can easily serve it up.
This dip will keep for several days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

  • Oh wow, that looks SO yummy! I know what you mean about making stuff that you don't even get to try. I made muffins on Sunday for a group of friends and I couldn't have them because they had so much sugar in them. But everyone else loved them. 🙂
