Raise your hand if you’re a bowl licker.

I could eat brownie batter all day long, like it’s my job. And then stay for overtime too.

So obviously, this brownie batter dip (which tastes just like brownie batter, only sans eggs) is one of my favorite treats! It’s awesome for parties and crowds, and always such a hit!

I created this recipe a little over a year ago, and since then I’ve seen it explode on the internet! Some of my blogger friends have even made and posted the dip on their blogs, and it seems to be popular wherever it goes! I definitely consider this recipe as one of Something Swanky’s “greatest hits.” Which means… make it! You’ll love it!

My favorite dippers are pretzels (I love sweet and salty)! But it’s also really good with apples, graham crackers, strawberries, and lots of other yummy dippers!
Also, just a side note– there are so many variations you could create with this recipe! Sub in Nutella or Peanut Butter for the butter! Add M&Ms or Reese’s cups! The sky is the limit!
Brownie Batter Dip


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. butter, softened
  • 2 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 5 tbsp. all purpose flour
  • 5 tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 3 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. In a stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese and the butter until smooth.
  2. Add the brown sugar, cocoa powder, flour, vanilla, salt, and 1 tbsp milk. Mix until mostly smooth. (mine stayed a little lumpy until I added all the other ingredients)
  3. Add the powdered sugar and another tablespoon of milk. Beat until smooth. Add another tablespoon of milk if the dip is to thick for your liking, but I usually stop at 2 tablespoons.
  4. Mix in the chocolate chips. Serve with dippers.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving. Serves 8-12

  18. I have been wanting to make a brownie batter dip for awhile but couldn’t quite wrap my brain around how to do it.

    It’s pretty obvious I don’t need to figure it out, I just need to follow your recipe!! Looks absolutely delish.

  19. So yummy!! Amazing dip recipes, can’t wait to try them!! =)

  20. I made this! Loved this! Blogged about this and gave credit back here. Just wanted to let you know. Thank so much, Maria http://caribbeanmissionarywife.blogspot.com/

  21. Found this recipe on Raising 4 Princess! She gave you original credit :) I made this a few night ago and it is AMAZING!!!! I am posting this recipe on my blog. Thank you for sharing :) I am now your newest follower! I have a cooking blog and would love for you to stop by anytime. Have a wonderful, blessed weekend!

  22. oh. my. goodness. Who needs pretzels? I’m just diving in!

  23. I’m new here…..what’s AP flour? Thanks in advance for letting me know. WOW!!! Can’t wait to try these new recipes……

  24. Beside pretzels, what else do you prefer to dip with it? Thanks! I want to bring this to an office party.

    • Oh, it’s good with pretty much anything! But I think strawberries, graham crackers, apples, and ritz crackers (really) are especially good with it. You can also use it as a frosting on cakes, cupcakes, or cookies!

      Hope you like it!!

  25. Just made this (found via pinterest a while ago) and it is SOOOO sinfully good! I am sure it will be a hit at Poker Night tonight!

  26. SO GOOD!! I was fearful I’d eat a ton because it’s delicious. But, it is not too sweet and rich so it filled me up quickly.

  27. I think I love you and your “let’s turn a delightful dessert into an even better dip” ways. Adding this one to a list of items I’m making for a girls weekend this week. Thanks!

  28. MMM can’t wait to make this for my sister’s baby shower! How many people does it serve?

  29. Oh my goodness, I will have to make this for my teenage daughter and her girlfriends!!

  30. Something is missing in your instructions…brown sugar! I’m sure it’s a great but if you follow as is: it’s tastes like flour and if you add the brown sugar at the end too grainy :(

  31. Made this today and it is awesome!!

  33. I am so excited to make this next week for my play group! Can it be made ahead, like overnight? Thank you!

  34. This brownie batter dip looks sooo delicious! It’s preggo-safe too, so I can indulge.

  35. This looks dangerously delicious! Love the idea of subbing peanut butter for the butter!

  36. Made a 1/2 batch of this dip today and LOVED it! Thank you for a great recipe.

  37. absolutely no need for the butter in this or the cookie dough dip recipe..

  38. I’m unsure of the need for the flour in the dip. What is its purpose? Wouldn’t everything be creamy enough without flour as glue?

  39. Just made this. It is sinful but soooooo good. I used nutella rather than butter and left out the brown sugar because I don’t have any. Still delicious. Going to serve it with salted mini pretzels. It is like your mom giving you permission to eat the whole bowl of brownie mix. I can now cancel my counseling sessions and just make/eat this instead.

  40. I made a double batch of this for my daughter’s sweet 16 party. We had a lot of it left, so I thinned it a bit with milk to make it a spreadable consistency and used it to frost a cake for tonight. Double awesome.
