This no bake, super chocolatey, fluffy, brownie batter dip is extra creamy and smooth and the perfect treat for any get together. If you’re a lover of raw cookie dough or brownie batter, then this is for you!

Now days, it seems anything chocolate comes in a dark chocolate flavor. It’s great for all the dark chocolate lovers out there. This flavor is more complex and deeper, and this recipe is no exception. The dark chocolate brownie mix and the mini semi-sweet chocolate chips give the depth you are looking for while the cream cheese combined with the cool whip provides the airiness.

Unlike jarred chocolate dip or chocolate syrup dipping sauce, this dip is rich and lighter when combined with the other ingredients. It’s way too easy to sit down with the bowl and scoop it right up with graham crackers. I highly advise portioning it into bowls because you won’t be able to stop at a few scoops, especially if you’re on a chocolate kick and craving it at the moment.

Ingredients in Brownie Dip

Brownie Mix: I like to use dark chocolate for a super rich and flavorful profile. Feel free to use whatever brand is your favorite. Also, experiment with milk chocolate, or fudge as other choices as well. Some brands even come with a packet of chocolate sauce or caramel sauce to drizzle over the top of it. It’s important to note that the brownie mix must be heated to kill off bacteria and e. coli. Doing so in the microwave will make it safe to eat.

Cream Cheese: Use regular cream cheese in block form, not whipped cream cheese. Beat in until it is smooth. It helps if the cream cheese is at room temperature to begin or it can be softened in the microwave for 1 minute.

Butter: Use unsalted if you have it and add 1/4 teaspoon of salt to the mix. If using salted butter, cut the amount in half to 1/8 teaspoon. A little salt will highlight the chocolate flavor even more.

Reader Questions and Tips

How long can I store the dip?

Store the dip in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Remember to place it in the fridge when it’s not be eaten.

What kind of fruit can I use?

Berries like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries are perfect to serve on toothpicks. Other fruits can include pineapple chunks, watermelon, honeydew, cantaloupe, cherries, and apples. Other desserts include a variety of cookies or marshmallows. Potato chips and pretzels are also a great along with graham crackers or other snack type cookies.

Why does the brownie mix need to be microwaved? Can I skip this step?

I do not recommend skipping this step. Flour is raw and must be heated to correct temperatures to kill off bacteria, germs, and e. coli that causes food poisoning.

Flavorful Additions

I like to have a few other bowls out with small spoons that offer each guest the ability to add some toppings. Depending on what time of year it is, you can really get creative by using a sprinkle with a specific color, like white chocolate or pastel color sprinkles at Easter, or crushed candy cane or red sprinkles for Christmas or Valentine’s Day.
