Reeses Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip
If you love cookie dough, have you ever thought about skipping the baking process and just making it a part of your favourite dessert? This recipe for Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Dip will show you how to do it. Then you can add cookie dough to just about any sweet treat you fancy – graham crackers, animal crackers, pretzels, fruit, ice cream, pie, doughnuts, cupcakes, cake, and, of course, even cookies.
This cookie dough recipe is reminiscent of two favourite things we enjoyed as kids. Do you recall when you used to make cookies with your grandma and she’d give you the bowl to scrape out when you were done? Remember how good that cookie dough used to taste? Almost better than the cookies that came out of the oven, right? And remember Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups? How they melted in your mouth, their flavours complementing each other and blending together perfectly? Now you can relive those nostalgic sensations with this amazing dessert dipping sauce that’s easy to make and even easier to eat.
One of the best things about this dessert recipe is that it doesn’t include eggs like real cookie dough would, but uses cream cheese, instead. For food safety reasons, it’s always a good idea to completely cook your eggs before consuming or serving them. When we look at cookie dough, we often forget there could be raw eggs in there, but thanks to cream cheese, this “cookie dough” recipe is completely egg free. Cream cheese is such a versatile recipe ingredient. It’s one that can be uses in sweet dishes as well as in savoury ones, simply because it tends to take on the flavours of other ingredients mixed with it. In the case of this peanut butter chocolate chip cookie dough, it adds to the creamy texture of the peanut butter while blending with the brown sugar and vanilla flavours, providing a luscious contrast to the big chunks of Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups and smaller chocolate chips mixed throughout. You also have a hint of cheesecake in there, especially if you spread this dip onto cake or graham crackers. Whether it’s for game night, a potluck, sleepover, or a kids’ birthday party, this surprisingly original dessert condiment recipe will hit a home run every time, making virtually everything you dip into it taste even better. Once it’s done, be sure to store it in the fridge to keep it properly chilled so that it will stay fresh and retain it’s creamy texture.
