Monster Cookie Dip

This fun dessert dip is always a huge hit. It is like eating monster cookie dough in dip form and there are so many fun things you could dip into it. Don't worry, I won't blame you if one of those this is a spoon.

     Monster cookie dip is a super fun snack for all of the monster cookie lovers in your life. It is kind of like getting permission to eat cookie dough. Plus you can use fun dippers to do it!  Put this on your must make list for your next get together.

MiMi shared this recipe with us back in 2016.  We were looking for a fun snack to bring to a party, and Little Dude and I decided on this dip.

So we whipped some up and made a video while we did it.  It comes together so quickly and it tastes amazing.  We just knew we should share it again so you could make some for yourself!

Here is the original post from 2016:

       My husband and I always host our friends and family for big football games.  Sometimes its just a random Sunday and our Steelers are playing, or a fun playoff game.  We always have a spread of food and people come and go and grab a bite.

      For the biggest game of the season, we do it even bigger.  We set up two TVs in the living room and another one in the dining room.

    The food spread gets bigger too!  MiMi made this monster cookie dip a few years back and it was a hit.

     So when she asked what she could bring to the shindig this year, of course I suggested this.  While she was at it we grabbed some pictures so we could share it with you!

Here is what MiMi had to say:

      I have been tinkering with the recipe for a little while now.  There were a few versions online that looked good, but I tweaked them to turn them into something the whole family would love.

      When Carlee suggested I make it for a get together, I was more than happy to do it.  There were so many wonderful things to eat that everybody was pretty full by the time we put the sweets out.

   Most of her guests were curious so they put a little on their plate so they could try it.  I happened to be sitting in the dining room where the food was being served.

   It got to be funny watching those that thought they would just want a little taste come back and fill their plates.  This was quick and easy to make and a lot of people had never seen it before, so that made it extra fun.  Now they are going to request it every year!

    We really love serving sweet dips and cheese balls at parties.  They are easier to serve than fancy baked desserts plus they are easier for people to munch on without having to commit to a big piece.

    The fact that they can almost always be made ahead is a big bonus as well!  And the variety of things you can use as dippers is almost endless.  You can use anything from fruit to cookies and pretzels.

    If you are looking for more fun sweet dips, we have some more ideas for you! The red velvet cheese ball is always a fun one to serve.

     Or there is always peanut butter and yogurt dip. We love it on fruit, but it would also be great on any of these dippers!

Do you have a favorite sweet dip?

If you like this, you might also like:

  • No bake monster cookie bites are fun energy balls that are perfect for lunch boxes or afternoon snacks. They are another way to get that fun monster cookie dough vibe without raw eggs.
  • Monster cookies are one of our favorite cookies if you can't tell.  That is probably why we base so many recipes off their dough!
  • If you like cookie dough ice cream and monster cookies, you have to try monster cookie dough ice cream.  The base has peanut butter and brown sugar mixed in and there is a ton of monster cookie dough bites in there too.  (In fact you can freeze the leftovers of this dip and use it as bits in ice cream if you want!) 
  • Coconut Cream Pie Dip gives you the flavor of coconut cream pie without the fuss.  It is a great summertime treat.

    1. I hope he loves it as much as we did! I could live on this kind of stuff! Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for the party.

  12. YUM! You need to tell Mimi that I am pinning this recipe cuz I need to make it!

    I bet she had a lot of fun sitting there watching people come back for more, I think I would have parked myself right there in front of the Dip so I could have my share, most of it. Lol

    1. I am sure she appreciates it. I kept hearing her giggle as people who just wanted to try it came back for more (and more!) It was so darn good. Next time I want to try apple slice dippers, then it would be health food!
