What Do You Need to Make This Recipe?

Ingredients 

A labeled ingredient shot for the ingredients needed to make brownie batter dip.
  1. Boxed Brownie Mix: Feel free to use whatever brand you like best. Do not add any ingredients to the mix, you will just be using the powder.
  2. Cream Cheese: Allow your cream cheese to come to room temperature when making this recipe. Full fat cream cheese will give you the creamiest flavor but feel free to use the reduced fat if you want. I do not recommend using any spreadable cream cheese as they are too soft and your dip may end up runny.
  3. Salt: Just a pinch really helps bring out the flavors
  4. Cool Whip: Make sure you leave your cool whip in the fridge overnight or on the counter for a few hours so it can completely thaw before you need to use it. You could use homemade whipped cream but using Cool Whip or premade whipped topping makes it easy and allows the dip to hold up better over time. 
  5. Mini Chocolate Chips: For topping

Tools

  1. Stand Mixer
  2. Large Mixing Bowl
  3. Whisk
  4. Rubber Spatula

How to Make This Recipe

Step One: Heat Treat

Heat treat the brownie mix by microwaving the powder for 2 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Allow the brownie mix to completely cool before moving on. 

Step Two: Whip the Cream Cheese

Place your brownie batter dip in a serving dish and top with mini chocolate chips to serve. Enjoy with graham crackers, waffle cone pieces, oreos, strawberries, pretzels, and more. 

Why Heat the Brownie Mix?

The boxed brownie mix is made with raw ingredients including uncooked flour. It is expected that you will bake these ingredients before eating. 

Since we won’t be baking the ingredients, we need to make sure they are safe to consume. Heating the brownie mix before using it ensures we kill off any hidden e coli and bacteria that may be in the raw flour. 

You can also heat treat your brownie mix in the oven. Spread it on a baking sheet and bake it at 350 degrees for five minutes.

Essentially you heat treat the brownie batter for the same reason it’s not a good idea to eat raw brownie batter or raw cookie dough. Better safe than sorry! 

Expert Tips

  • You want to use just the brownie mix powder for this recipe. Do not add the oil and eggs that make the brownie mix into batter.
  • If you notice any lumps in your brownie mix it may be a good idea to sift the powder before adding it. You don’t want any lumps in the final dip!
  • Allow your cream cheese to come to room temperature before whipping it. This will help it whip up with ease and prevent lumps as well.
  • For even more chocolatey flavor try adding a teaspoon or two of cocoa powder. Don’t add too much or your mix may end up chalky!
  • Use a rubber spatula to scrape all the sides of your mixing bowl well as you mix up your cream cheese. Make sure it is all the way whipped and creamy before adding anything else.

Variations

This Easy Brownie Batter Dip Recipe makes a very easy and versatile dip but you can add whatever you like to take the dip to the next level. Try mixing in more mini chocolate chips, crushed candy bars, mint chips, white chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, mini m&ms, reese’s pieces, peanut butter chips, or a few tablespoons of extra cocoa powder.

What to Serve with Brownie Batter Dessert Dip

One of the things that makes this no bake dessert dip the best is how many different things it can be served with. You can serve it with cookies, pretzels or even fresh fruit. Some of my favorite dippers are:

  • Graham crackers
  • Pretzels
  • Animal crackers
  • Strawberries
  • Bananas
  • Vanilla Wafers
  • Oreos
  • Chocolate chip cookies
  • Marshmallows
  • Apple slices
  • Waffle cone pieces
  • Shortbread cookies
  • Raspberries

Can I Prep Brownie Dessert Dip in Advance? 

Yes, this is a great make ahead recipe. You can mix up this dip and store it in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to four days. Just give it a good mix before serving to make sure your dippers can get a good scoop. You can leave this dip out at room temperature for up to two hours.

This mix is not good in the freezer. The cream cheese and whipped cream don’t hold up well in the freezer and as they melt your dip will separate and turn grainy. It’s best to enjoy it within a few days.

Why is My Dip Lumpy?

Your dip may be lumpy for a few reasons. The first is your cream cheese didn’t get mixed all the way. Make sure you scrape down the sides of your bowl often to ensure all the cream cheese gets whipped.

The other culprit is lumps in your brownie mix. Next time you make this recipe try sifting your brownie mix to remove any lumps.
