It tastes like a slice of Reese’s cheesecake– only in dip form.

The best part is, just like cookie dough dip, hot chocolate dip, and funfetti dip, this sweet cream cheese dip only takes a few minutes to make.

Simply mix the ingredients together, top with some chocolate sauce and chunks of Reese’s, and enjoy with your favorite dippers.

Ingredients

This section includes ingredient notes and substitution options. Get all measurements, ingredients, and instructions in the printable recipe card at the end of this post.

Ingredients for Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Dip
  • Cream Cheese— Softened cream cheese is the base of this no-bake cheesecake dip.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk— Can be found in the baking aisle of the grocery store. Be careful not to pick up evaporated milk by mistake- they are two very different things,
  • Peanut Butter— Opt for creamy peanut butter rather than chunky peanut butter for this Reese’s dessert.
  • Vanilla Extract— Adds to the flavor.
  • Cool Whip— Cool and creamy whipped topping adds a lightness and a bit of fluff to the dessert dip. Be sure to allow it thaw in the fridge overnight before making your dip!
  • Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups— It wouldn’t be Reese’s dip without including the classic peanut butter and chocolate candies. You can use regular size or mini Reese’s.
  • Chocolate Sundae Syrup—To drizzle on top of the dip.

Substitutions & Variations

  • You can substitute the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups with a store brand version.
  • You can substitute homemade fudge sauce for the chocolate sundae syrup.
  • Use “light” cream cheese instead of full-fat cream cheese (although this will affect the taste).
  • Can’t get Cool Whip where you live? Use my recipe for stabilized whipped cream without gelatin instead. It is easy to make and a perfect cool whip replacement.

Supplies

  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mixer
  • Serving dish

How to Store

Cover any leftover dip or transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to three days. 

Recipe Tips

  • Make sure the cream cheese is softened to room temperature so it will be easier to mix with the sweetened condensed milk. If it’s too chilled, it will be lumpy and will take longer to mix.
  • A 24 ounce dish is perfect for serving this easy Reese’s cheesecake dip. 
  • Don’t let the dip sit out more than 2 hours at room temperature for food safety reasons.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I make this dessert dip ahead?

Yes, you can make this dip in advance up to a day before you want to serve it. Store it in the fridge until ready to serve.

Can I freeze the dip?

I don’t recommend freezing Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Dip because of the cream cheese.

  1. Made this for an adult birthday party. Served it with apple slices, graham crackers and nutter butter cookies. Apple slices were the favorite dippers. I used one can of sweetened condensed milk which was slightly less than what the recipe calls for but it was great, NO leftovers and lots of requests for the recipe!
