Wow. Honestly…that’s all I can say.

They say a person’s true character is revealed by what he does when no one is watching…

I guess I’m a self-indulgent, ravenous Monster.

Monster Cookie Dough Dip eating fool…

I made this dip around lunch time and could not stop eating it. I ate so much I just decided to call it lunch. Hey…peanut butter has protein in it.

I managed to save a little but for my husband to try after he came home from golfing.

My husband, the personification of self-control said, “Why can’t I stop eating this?!!”

I spotted this on Something Swanky. You can customize it to be thinner like an actual dip or thicker like cookie dough which is how I like it. Serve it will graham crackers, apples, pretzels, or just a spoon (again…how I like it).

Author: Christy Denney
  • 1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • ½ cup butter , slightly softened
  • 1 cup creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ½ cups rolled oats , old fashioned or quick (see Note)
  • 2/3 cup plain M&Ms (give or take)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  1. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter until smooth.
  2. Add in the powdered sugar, brown sugar, flour, and vanilla.
  3. Using the paddle attachment on your stand mixer or just a wooden spoon, mix in the oats. You may want to use more or less here. I really like the oats in it and a thicker dip so I added a lot. Remember that the dip will also firm up a bit in the fridge.
  4. Add the M&Ms and chocolate chips.
  5. Store in the refrigerator until serving. Serve with pretzels, graham crackers, or apple slices. You can dip or spread this depending on how thick you made your dip. Try not to eat it all like I did!
  6. Note: You can use more or less oats to adjust the thickness of your dip. Start with about 1 1/2 cups oats and keep adding until you reach your desired thickness. If you use quick oats you might use less since it's finer and will make the dough thicker.
Recipe Notes

slightly adapted from Something Swanky

Monster Cookie Dough Dip - peanut butter, chocolate chips, m&ms, oats all in a dip. I've eaten a whole bowl by myself.

Speak Your Mind



  1. Oh my goodness! I would eat the whole batch for sure!

  2. OMG this website raises my blood sugar just looking at it!

  3. Um. This just might be my favorite post! Can you post a good monster cookie recipe too??

  4. Forget the cooked cookie, give me the raw cookie dough!! YUM.


  5. WOW!!! That’s all I can say 🙂

  6. I imagined you laughing an evil genius laugh the entire time you put this post together…because this recipe and that photo can only come from a really wicked Evil Genius!

  7. Yikes, looks dangerously delicious! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Oh my…I love Monster cookies. I think I would like this dip better than the chocolate chip cookie dough because I love that it has the oats and peanut butter…and M&M’s of course!

  9. Mmm this is packed with yumminess! Love it!

  10. Is it sad that I have all of these ingredients in my pantry/fridge? And that said block of cream cheese has been taunting me trying to make me come up with something to include it in?

    Wowsa. I think I’ve found dessert for Mother’s Day! LOL

    About how much does this make?


  11. This is insane. I would totally destroy that whole bowl of dip. Daintily, of course!

  12. I could definitely destroy a bowl of this. There’s oats in it, it’s healthy…

  13. I copied this immediately! My kids are going to love you, I already like you a lot! 😛

  14. @Jenn,
    It’s not bad. I actually had all of the ingredients too! I want to say that this made around 5 cups worth. Hard to say because I kept eating it. I’ll have to make it again soon to give a better answer. 🙂

  15. Hey this looks so yummy! Did you use dark or light brown sugar?

  16. I want this for dinner tonight! Amazing!

  17. Why didn’t I know about this when I was younger…I was the girl who could eat an entire cookie dough log while watching a movie…I’m sure I have some residual salmonella or something. I have to make this immediately…this will be dinner for sure!

  18. I think I just gained 10 lbs. looking at this! I can never make this, b/c I would eat the entire bowl.

  19. @Kaylah,
    I used light brown but I think you could use either.

  20. I’m allergic to peanut butter (and treenut/seed butters) Do you think or know if this would work without the peanut butter?! (Of course, I could make it for my kids WITH the peanut butter, but what fun would that be?)

  21. Wow! Er, I don’t want to sound too much like a star-struck blog stalker, but… omg-I-love-your-blog-and-I-can’t-believe you-made-my-dip-and-I-love-your-blog.

    Photos look awesome! And I’m glad I’m not the only one who had a compulsive eating problem with this one…

  22. @Maria,
    You can definitely make it without the peanut butter. You might need to cut down on the oats since it won’t need as much.

  23. @Something Swanky,
    I love your blog and I’m stalking you…so we’re even!

    Thanks for the awesome recipe!!

  24. Can this be baked like a cookie

  25. I hate you for this, aka I love you for this. Hello 10-mile redemption run!

  26. Yeah, just made it for a dinner party tomorrow. It would make a fun dessert for a Thursday night so, I am serving it with apple slices, pretzels and graham crackers. I have been thinking, it has oats for fiber, sugar for energy, peanut butter for protein, cream cheese for calcium, and chocolate for anti-oxidants. Really this is health food… 😉

  27. Awesome! Just made some. The hubby approves. Thanks!

  28. Going to try this tomorrow, yum! Andrea, I make 30 dozen monster cookies every year at Christmas time and this is the recipe I use. The cookies freeze beautifully by the way.
    Cnksmommie, I don’t think the dip recipe can be baked like a cookie, it’s missing the eggs and baking soda from the cookie recipe, I can see it turning to a puddle of melted goo on your cookie sheet (but delicious goo!)

  29. Oh WOW! I was looking for fun finger foods for my son’s party and this is PERFECT!!! Thanks for sharing!

  30. @SixMonthsofKetchupSoup,
    Thanks for the recipe! I want to try it out!

    I answered your question earlier but I guess it didn’t go through. Just like said above, you can not bake these because there isn’t egg in them.

  31. This is awesome! Someone had asked if you could replace the peanut butter and all I did was add another brick of cream cheese. I added more powdered sugar and some milk to thin it out a bit because I did want it to be more like a dip. I served it with nilla wafers and spoons to everyone could just scoop it out. I did forget what else I needed and ended up with mini oreos so I chopped them up and threw them in as well. After sitting overnight they kind of desolved into this oreo ribbon of heaven. You could put anything in this and it is just incredibly yummy!

  32. This looks fabulous. Can’t wait to try it. The red polka dot bowl is adorable….where did you get it?

  33. @Christina,
    I got the bowl from my mother-in-law who got it at Homegoods.

  34. I need some of this STAT!

  35. Yum!!! Hope to try this soon!

  36. This recipe is AMAZING! It will be featured tomorrow as the “Daily Nosh” on I’ve paired it with Root 1 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Simply delish ~ Cheers!

  37. *Passes out on the floor!*

  38. My husband wanted something sweet after dinner and I had been eyeing this one for a while- quick and easy and I had everything on hand. We ate about half of it before we made ourselves put it away! It’s like your dream of eating all the cookie dough raw coming true without the stomachache!

  39. Hey! Can I freeze this? or How long will it last in the fridge?

  40. Hey! Can I freeze this? or How long does it last in the fridge?

  41. @Gege and babemalo,
    I haven’t tried to freeze this but it has the same components as a similar recipe that I freeze so I think you could. It will keep in the fridge for a while. It firms up in the fridge so take it out for a while if you want to eat it. I would say 3-4 days in the fridge would be fine.

  42. Mignonmichelle says:

    I made this today for a jewelry party I was hosting and it was a hit! I pretty much had the party just to have an excuse to make this!! So, so yum! I had to pass the recipe along to several ladies! I have also been enjoying many of your other recipes! Thanks for a great blog and incredible food ideas!

  43. Making this for my daughters birthday party, and wanted to know if you can make it the night before? i like to try and make and prep as much as possible so day of i’m not a monster! thanks!

  44. @Anonymous,
    Yes, you can make it the night before. You are funny!

  45. Do you think the flour is absolutely necessary? My daughter is gluten free and if I took out the flour it would then be a gf recipe. 🙂

  46. @Paula,
    Absolutely! It will be a little creamier but still taste awesome!

  47. Second recipe to try from your blog. Another hit! Absolutely loved this and will definitely be making it again.

  48. Can u replace the peanut butter with something non nut? Allergic.

  49. @Anonymous,
    For me monster cookie dough is made by the peanut butter so I’m racking my brain for some substitute that would still be great in there and am having a hard time. Sorry. Still thinking…

  50. Use soynut butter! I’m allergic to peanuts and it came out awesome : )

  51. Your blog is amazing, so many yummy recipes, i can’t even keep up! Love them, thanks for sharing!

  52. Question: Of you make this the night before, do the M&M’s coloring come off in the mix from the coldness of the fridge or once taken out to thaw, the “sweating” of moisture? I imagine it will taste better next day, but I’m worried about the M&Ms colors bleeding, and looking yucky! Lol 🙂
    Thank you!

  53. I don’t do oats, is there a replacement?

  54. @Anonymous,
    I’m not sure what you can use to replace oats. Maybe flaked cereal like Cornflakes would give you a good texture?

  55. Yummy. I’m making this for a Halloween party

  56. I saw this recipe last week and could NOT get that picture out of my mind. Was going to make it for a party next week, but could not wait. I have been abstaining from anything delectable for a couple of weeks (doing really well) and expect this to be my downfall. Well, at least I’m taking everyone at work down with me! I made it this afternoon and of course it’s as great as I anticipated. Now to ignore it until it’s all gone! (I only licked the bowl!)

  57. Hi! Do you use Twitter? I’d like to follow you if that would be okay. I’m absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts.

  58. Kathi Hoffman says:

    This sounds awesome! I have had the chocolate chip cookie dough dip and could not stop eating it………WHEN I make this, I am in trouble!! LOL! Thank You!

  59. Katelyn's Mom says:

    I have to make a dip for the church Christmas party, I was looking for something besides the normal ranch and veggies dip. This is a perfect idea! I’m sure that everyone will love it!!

  60. Katie steimle says:

    Where did you get this stoneware

  61. this sounds awesome,can you make it without creamcheese?
    I love cream cheese but it is not something I have around house all the time

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      I’ve never tried it with cream cheese. It could be good but it might come out too thick without the cream cheese.

  62. oh my! this recipe sounds amazing!

  63. I saw this floating on Pintrest and I immediately had to plug it into the recipe builder on the Weight Watcher site to see if this was something I could sneak in.
    I exchanged the full fat cream cheese for Neufchatel (basically it’s the same is 1/3 less fat cream cheese) and used light butter instead of full fat and it STILL comes out to 168 points value. Granted that’s for 1 serving, but even if I could get 20 servings out of this, and I mean really who can; it would still be 8 points. This looks amazing though and I may just have to make it and then bring it to a party!

  64. I tried this recipe tonight and while it was good it made soooo much. I’ve got 6 people to feed tomorrow and I swear I’ll still have 2/3rds of it left. I should have known to at least half the recipe. Hopefully I can add an egg and some baking powder into the remaining dough and bake some cookies out of it. =)

  65. For anyone who wants to know, I make this (far too) often, and I always freeze half and keep the other half in the fridge/spoon it directly in to my mouth. It freezes REALLY well, and thaws out fairly quickly, too. When thawed, it’s only slightly thicker than when made fresh. Color of M&Ms doesn’t run at all, and it’s still just as delicious! It also keeps me from eating it all right away, and then I have a backup treat if there’s nothing else in the house and I HAVE to have something 🙂

  66. Brie Cordoneir says:

    I made this this past summer after i had foot surgery and it was so good!!! So good that when I woke up it was all gone-my dad found it and ate the rest of it while I was sleeping!!! Best thing I’ve tried from Pinterest!

  67. If this is a dip what do you eat it with?

  68. I just got some butterscotch peanutbutter this sounds like the perfect use for it1

  69. Wow! I’m one of those people who prefer to eat the batter/dough over the baked product. This was like eating the best cookie dough ever!! Can’t wait for everyone else to try it later tonight. Thanks for posting.

  70. I just finished making this for a dip potluck at work tonight. It turned out great! Tastes amazing, quick and easy recipe, and I am sure there are countless ways to add your own spin to it. I want to try using nutella or Jiff’s mocha spread in place of the peanut butter. Thanks so much for posting a great and easy recipe. Love it! Yum Yums!

  71. How many servings is this?

  72. I have a gluten allergy do you think gf oats would work ?

  73. Best idea ever!! Seriously excited to make this!

  74. this is amazing! have to try it.

  75. how much flour should i add if i were to convert it into cookies?

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      I’m not sure. Without baking soda and eggs I’m not sure how they would turn out.

    • Ingredients
      3 eggs
      1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
      1 cup granulated sugar
      1/2 teaspoon salt
      1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
      1 12 -ounce jar creamy peanut butter
      1 stick butter, softened
      1/2 cup multi-colored chocolate candies
      1/2 cup chocolate chips
      1/4 cup raisins, optional
      2 teaspoons baking soda
      4 1/2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or nonstick baking mats.
      In a very large mixing bowl, combine the eggs and sugars. Mix well. Add the salt, vanilla, peanut butter, and butter. Mix well. Stir in the chocolate candies, chocolate chips, raisins, if using, baking soda, and oatmeal. Drop by tablespoons 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
      Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Let stand for about 3 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool. When cool, store in large resealable plastic bags

  76. I come to this post ALL THE TIME just to look at it! I made it once for me and my friends..after a taste bud bursting taste, we were practically shoving and biting to get to the bowl first!-

  77. I’m about to make this!! I love cookie dough!! I never get sick from eating raw dough 🙂 im not a fan of oats,do I have to use oats? would like to make this today!!!

  78. How many calories do you think are in this? I’ve been craving it so badly but curious about how much I’ll have to workout after lol

  79. I made this today, and the only thing I changed was adding a few pinches of sea salt (added one pinch at a time and tested until it was just right). Really made a difference! The salt cut any bitterness in the chocolate and melded the flavors nicely. Delicious recipe!

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      I totally agree that a pinch of salt can bring out the best in anything. I will try it next time. Thanks for the tip Heather.

  80. how long will this last in the refrigerated for? I have a party in two days and want to make sure t lasts

  81. Just made this last night! Turned out great, however all I can taste is peanut butter…any recommendations on how to make it taste more like actual cookie dough and less like you’re eating plain peanut butter! Still was very good!! 🙂

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      Weird. I didn’t notice the peanut butter taste that much. You can definitely add less.

      • Brenda Beabout says:

        I like the grainy texture that the brown sugar gives chocolate chip cookie dough, so when I make it, I am going to decrease peanut butter a bit and increase brown sugar a bit.

  82. I just wanted to share what I do with this recipe. I make it just the way it is, but then press it into a 9″ round baking pan and stick it in the fridge. It’s my top layer to my brownie cheesecake cookie dough cake. It works perfect and is amazing!

  83. THE BEST cookie dough dip recipe I’ve ever had. Not lying when I say I could definitely eat the entire recipe! Really good with vanilla wafers, or eaten just by itself.

  84. I know this is one of your older recipes, but I love it! We are having a “Spooky Dessert Potluck” at work this week, and I am bringing this to share with everyone. I’m sure everyone is going to love it as much as I do.

  85. A co-worker made this and substituted the peanutbutter with sunbutter for those with peanut allergies. Everyone loved it! She served it with mini vanilla wafers. Thank you for this great recipe!

  86. i was excited to make this, but a bit disappointed that it doesn’t really taste like cookie dough. It’s very peanut buttery and that overwhelms the taste. Any suggestions to make it taste more like cookie dough and less like a peanut butter dip? I’m not sure if just leaving out the peanut butter would work.

    • Christy {The Girl Who Ate Everything} says:

      You could use less peanut butter and more flour or oats to give it more of a cookie dough texture instead of a creamier dip.

  87. Hello

    I was just wondering if you heat this with anything or just by itself?

  88. Hey Christy! I just wanted to let you know that for a YW cooking activity, I had the girls make their own Monster Cookie Dough Dip and it was so amazingly delicious!! We had such a fun time making this recipe but eating it (especially with sliced apples) was absolutely the best part of the night! Love it!

  89. AWESOME!!! I made this for a friend’s birthday party last Saturday and it was fun to watch everyone’s eyes get real big with that first bite! Everyone loved it and I ate too much. I will be making this for a family Easter gathering! Let the fun begin! Thanks for a delicious recipe!

  90. Monster edible cookie dough is awesome. I recommend it.

  91. If I were to try to make this with pb2, how much do you think I would use? Enough to make 1 cup, or just enough to give it some peanut butter flavor?

  92. Brenda Beabout says:

    Can’t wait to make.

  93. I have made this numerous times and it is ALWAYS a hit! I now grind the oats in a blender first before adding them for a smoother cookie dough texture. I grind 2 cups and put all in recipe.

  94. Is there something I can put in place of the peanut butter my son is allergic.

  95. Chance Watkins says:

    I would need a spoon for this it looks so yummy lol! Thanks for sharing this with us; Jesus Christ Bless! 😉

  96. I know this is an OLD post, but I make this recipe ALL THE TIME, including this last New Years Eve. I’m sharing this on my blog (website listed below), and will be linking my (limited) viewers to your page! Thanks for a great recipe! 🙂

  97. Thank you for some other informative web site. The place else may I am
    getting that type of information written in such an ideal
    manner? I’ve a project that I am simply now operating on, and
    I’ve been at the look out for such information.

  98. This was good, except I followed the recipe exactly and the cream cheese taste was overwhelming. I could hardly taste the peanut butter.

  99. Sorry but I’m not english, Do I have to cook oats?

  100. I just ran across your post for monster cookies (which was amazing by the way!) and it led me to this gem. I know that I will not be able to make this recipe for monster cookie dip because I will eat it all. I will just have to stare and drool at this beautiful picture. And eat those monster cookies I just made! (:

  101. Any idea how long this could safely be stored in fridge ? Love the recipe, thanks.

  102. I have family with PB issues. Can this be made without the PB and would I have to change any of the measurements?

    • Ooh. That’s a tough one. Peanut butter is one of the main flavors in peanut butter cookie dough and without it, it tastes entirely different. On a side note, if you want a good dip that doesn’t quite taste like a monster cookie but still good, I think you substitute almond butter or Cookie butter!

  103. Excellent blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspliring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little los on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so mmany options outt there that
    I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Thanks!

  104. try putting coconut instead of oats 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

  105. That looks so good…

  106. I needed to take some time expressing my gratitude towards this website that was brilliant and you!
    Loving it!

  107. Wow I had never heard of someone using cookie dough as a dip and you are actually the second site I’ve seen today suggesting it.

    I think it’s an awesome way to use more cookie dough … which is never a bad thing.

  108. I recently couldn’t keep without saying thank you in the bottom of
    my heart after looking over this wonderful website!

  109. Wow! This website definitely clicks with me and that
    I may say nothing significantly less than I enjoy it!

  110. I’m not a big fan of peanut buttery stuff, so I wasn’t a huge fan, but it was still good. Although I wasn’t a big fan, the rest of my siblings absolutely loved it. We added dark chocolate m&m’s instead of the regular ones.

  111. This blog was… how do you say it? Relevant!! Finally I’ve found something that helped me.
    Many thanks!

  112. I wanted to take the time expressing my appreciation towards you
    and also this blog that was amazing! Caring it!

  113. After looking over this wonderful blog I just could not leave without saying thanks from your base
    of my heart!

  114. An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto
    a coworker who has been doing a little homework on this.
    And he actually ordered me breakfast because I discovered it for him…

    lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!!

    But yeah, thanks for spending some time to discuss this subject here on your web site.

  115. Appreciating the commitment you put into your website and
    in depth information you present. It’s good to
    come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated
    rehashed information. Great read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to
    my Google account.
