While most cookie dough dips are not healthy, they are a safe alternative to raw cookie dough. Once you get the hang of making dessert tips, you'll be able to customize them as you please and have fun experiment with different dipping foods. Enjoy!

Dangers of raw cookie dough

I did not write this article to preach about the dangers of eating raw cookie dough. However, one of the reasons that I love the idea of making cookie dough dips is that they are much a safer option than raw cookie dough. It is important to understand the risks of raw cookie dough.

  • E. coli and salmonella. The biggest risk of eating any type of raw cookie dough that contains egg is the possibility of an E. coli outbreak or salmonella.
  • Harmful ingredients in baking mixes. While many baking mixes contain pasteurized eggs these days, they may contain other ingredients that are harmful. For example, some baking mixes have flour that has not been heat-treated.

In general, it is best practice not to consume any raw food that is intended to be baked or cooked before eating. Baking mixes and refrigerated doughs come with specific preparation instructions for a reason.

How To Make Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip Recipe

Chocolate Chip

As chocolate chip cookies are one of the most popular cookies around, it is not a surprise that chocolate chip dips are also very popular. It is easy to customize this recipe with the chocolate chips of your choice (i.e. semi-sweet, dark, milk chocolate) or to change up the recipe with different chips or other mix-ins. For example, some people opt to mix in crushed candy bars instead (Health and Butterfinger are great choices).

Reese's / Peanut Butter / Peanut Butter Cup

If you love the chocolate / peanut butter combination, then you have to give this option a try. Most people choose to chop or crush regular or miniature Reese's cups. You can also use Reese's Pieces, peanut butter M&Ms, and/or a combination or chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and/or peanut butter.

Loaded Cookie Dough Dip Recipe

Monster

I had never heard of monster cookies before I lived in Iowa and don't know if all regions of the country use this name. It's a general term for an "everything" cookie that includes some combination of M&Ms, peanut butter, chocolate chips, and oatmeal. Some people opt to serve this dip at Halloween parties and play up the monster aspect of the snack with a special bowl, signage, and/or food coloring.

Sugar

It's best to mix up your dip ahead of time and let it chill so the flavors can blend. Otherwise the dip may be a little tart. One of the easiest and most fun ways to customize this dip is with colored sprinkles. Consider choosing sprinkles that fit the particular season, holiday, or occasion (i.e. school colors for a graduation party).

Snickerdoodle

For some reason, snickerdoodle dip seems to be a popular choice for skinny or healthy recipes. Do people who enjoy snickerdoodle cookies like to eat healthy? The originally recipe isn't more unhealthy than any other cookie dough dip. The second and third options here are marketed as skinny or healthy. If you choose a regular recipe, don't skip the toffee that many recipes include.

Gingerbread

Gingerbread cookie dip is a classic choice for Christmas parties, but of course you don't need to feel limited to this. Homemade or store-bought gingerbread cookies are a fun seasonal dipping option.

Mint Chocolate Chip

People who love mint chocolate desserts will enjoy a new dessert option: mint chocolate chip cookie dough dip. There are lots of wonderful mint chocolate chip desserts that you can pair with it or serve alongside it.

Chia Cookie Dough Dip

Healthy / Skinny / Sugar Free

If you spend any time on Pinterest, you have probably come across at least a couple healthy, skinny, or sugar free cookie dough dips. They are not for everyone, but if you are looking for a healthy alternative, many of them are worth a try. As many skinny dips have a chickpea base, they are often marketed as dessert or sweet hummus.

That stinks, Natasha. :( I really didn't want to start a debate about that topic in the comments section, but I feel like it needs to be said.

You're welcome! Gingerbread dip does seem really inspired, especially for the holidays. How it can be bad with marshmallows?

sarifearnbd, thanks! That's great.

I have only recently heard of cookie dip, but this looks great! Thanks for showcasing many different varieties.

I am awful when it comes to eating cookie dough, but I have been more aware lately. My boyfriend says that if I got sick from it even once, I would never touch it again!

Thanks for sharing this with us. The layout is very pretty, and there's a flavor for everyone. This would be something unique and popular at a party or cookout, I think.

Have a fantastic weekend!

It does seem to be a newer recipe or maybe it's just really taken off lately. I'm glad that you enjoyed the variety of options here. You're right that cookie dip would be both unique and popular for a get together.

For many years cookie dough was considered perfectly okay to eat, and I did it all the time when I was little. More recently there have been a lot more risks associated with it. It's better to be safe than sorry.

Take care!

Hi, Rose. I love the way you have covered this concept in such great detail and the childhood memories it brought back for me. I have never been a lover of sweet foodstuffs but I do remember as a child siblings/cousins fighting to scrape the bowl when cakes were being made and me standing back aghast and uninterested, wondering when the cheese or the meat was coming out... I probably missed out on a lot through my tastes.

I'm going to e-mail this direct to a couple of friends in particular, one of whom was talking to me in the pub only last week about the arguments his kids have over issues like this. Thanks on his behalf! :)

randomcreative 3 years ago from Milwaukee, Wisconsin Author

Thanks, Gordon! I have never been huge on sweets either, but raw cookie dough was a treat in our house when I was little. I appreciate you forwarding this along to people who have been discussing the issue. Hopefully it will be helpful for them.
