Monster Cookie Dough Dip (the original recipe)
My very favorite sweet dip (and the first one I ever posted on my blog). Loaded with peanut butter, oatmeal, M&Ms and chocolate chips. This dip is a cinch to make and even easier to eat!
This Monster Cookie Dough Dip is a recipe from very deep, deep, deeeeeeeeep in the archives and is very near and dear to my heart. For a few different reasons… first, because I have a soft spot for all things monster cookie. monster cookies remind me of my Grandma and Christmas time, and there's just all sorts of nostalgia wrapped up in that for me.
Secondly, because this recipe was my first popular post on Something Swanky! It didn't go viral by today's standards, but considering how small my following was way back then, it did reallllllly well. It was the first glimmer of hope that maybe this little blog of mine might amount to something one day.
It was also the first original recipe I ever created. Up until this one, I was solely relying upon Betty Crocker, Allrecipes.com, and Food Network for recipes that I posted to the blog. And although I still enjoy using those sources from time to time, this dip kickstarted my passion for recipe development.
Also: it's insanely good.
This dip is literally like spooning a mouthful after mouthful of monster cookie dough in your mouth. And it's acceptable, because it's a dip.
Hey– I don't make the rules. But I'm happy to follow when it involves socially mandated cookie dough eating. ????
Here's what you'll need:
Cream cheese and butter. Can't be bad with a start like that!
Peanut butter. I like creamy for this, but crunchy is yum too.
Brown sugar, flour, vanilla, and salt. Just as if you were making actual cookies.
And finally: oatmeal, M&Ms, chocolate chips, and more M&Ms.
This creamy peanut butter dip is LOADED with texture from the oatmeal, M&Ms, and chocolate chips. And you know me– I'm such a texture freak. I just love biting into something. And this dip really delivers on that.
Plus it tastes like monster cookies. And not all cookie dough dips actually taste like cookie dough, amiright? Have you tried the massively popular cookie dough dip? Super good, but also super-doesn't-taste-like-cookie-dough.
This recipe does. It's amazing.
- Use an electric mixer to beat together the cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter in a medium mixing bowl.
- Mix in the powdered sugar, brown sugar, vanilla, and oats.
- Mix in the M&Ms and Chocolate Chips.
- Serve with pretzels, graham crackers, and spoons!
I think this dip is really best when it's served immediately after making it. You can absolutely make it ahead and chill it (it will be still taste good!), however you may find that the dip is too firm once chilled to be a "dip." And if you let it thaw, you'll run into an issue of the M&M colors bleeding.
