  • Brownie mix: I prefer Ghirardelli or Duncan Hines for their rich chocolate flavor. Since brownie mix contains raw flour, we’re going to microwave it for a few seconds to make sure it’s safe to eat.
  • Cream cheese: Room temperature softened cream cheese blends more smoothly.
  • Cool Whip: At room temperature, to fold easily into the mix. Make your own homemade cool whip if you would like!
  • Optional Add-ins: Jazz up your brownie batter dip with some vanilla extract and a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness. Mini chocolate chips add texture to the smooth and creamy dip.

Dip Add-Ins

I love when I can add a twist to recipes to switch things up from time to time and this brownie batter recipe is no exception! Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Coffee kick: Coffee lovers can add a teaspoon of instant coffee or espresso powder to give your dip a mocha flavor.
  • Make it nutty: For crunchy mix-ins, sprinkle chopped nuts like pecans or walnuts on top of the dip before serving.
  • Extra sweet: Stir in some mini marshmallows, mini M&M candies, reese’s pieces, peanut butter chips, or white chocolate chips.
  • Topping: Finish the dip off with a drizzle of chocolate or caramel syrup for a little added decadence.
