Whipped topping, milk, block of cream cheese, mini chocolate chips, and brownie mix.
  • Brownie Mix – opt for a high-quality brownie mix without any chocolate chips or mix-ins for the best results.
  • Cream Cheese – full-fat cream cheese serves as the base of the creamy dessert dip.
  • Whipped Topping – whipped topping, such as Cool Whip, adds a light and fluffy element to help balance out the rich flavors of the brownie mix and cream cheese.
  • Milk – I recommend whole milk or 2%
  • Chocolate Chips – miniature chocolate chips are the perfect size for the dip, however, regular-sized chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips) can be used as well. If using regular-sized chips, consider chopping them into smaller pieces using a knife or food processor.

Equipment

  • Large mixing bowl
  • Hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment
  • Rubber spatula

What to dip in brownie batter dip

I like serving the dip with a variety of dipping options. You can try any one (or more) of these delicious dippers:

  • graham crackers
  • pretzels
  • vanilla wafers
  • chocolate chip cookies
  • animal crackers
  • strawberries
  • apple slices
  • other fresh fruit
  • potato chips (I know, this sounds odd but the salty-sweet combination is perfection)

Storage

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Uncover and allow the dip to come to room temperature before enjoying.

Additions and variations

  • Switch up the chips. Swap white chocolate chips or peanut butter chips for the regular chips for a whole new flavor twist.
  • Add some mix-ins. Try adding crushed nuts, mini M&M candies, Reese’s pieces, sprinkles, mini marshmallows, or a swirl of caramel sauce.
  • Experiment with flavor. Consider adding different a little bit of vanilla extract or peppermint extract to enhance the flavor.

Expert tips & tricks

  • Do not skip heat-treating the brownie mix. Brownie mix contains raw flour which can harbor harmful bacteria. Heating until the temperature of the mix reaches 165°F will make it safe to consume.
  • Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature for easy mixing and a smooth texture in the dip.
  • Beating the cream cheese, brownie mix, and milk together first minimizes the mixing once the whipped topping is added. This will help prevent the dip from “deflating.”
  • It is important to gently fold in the whipped topping so it doesn’t deflate. 

Recipe FAQ

Can I use any type of brownie mix?

Yes, basically. Just look for a brownie mix that does not contain chips, chunks, or syrups.

Can I use homemade whipped cream instead of Cool Whip?

Yes, you can use homemade whipped cream if you would like. However, keep in mind that whipped cream isn’t stabilized like whipped topping is, which means it deflates easier and doesn’t keep as well.

Can I make this recipe into an actual brownie?

No, this recipe is not intended to be baked into brownies. However, you can use a second box of brownie mix to make regular brownies according to the package instructions, and then use the brownies as dippers for the brownie batter dip.

Can I make this dip ahead of time?

Yes, you can make the easy brownie batter dip ahead of time and store it in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Just make sure to let it come to room temperature for just a bit before serving, so it’s not too cold and stiff.

  1. What if I do not have a microwave? How would you recommend heat treating the brownie mix?

    1. Hi Maryann. You can heat treat the brownie mix in the oven instead. Spread the brownie mix into a thin, even layer on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 5 minutes, or until the temperature of the mix reaches 165°F on an instant-read thermometer.
