The perfect dessert table isn’t just packed with cakes, puddings, trifles, and treats in a cup. You need an array of delicious dessert dips to complete the experience and satisfy the most demanding sweet tooth.
Yes, you heard that right. You need sweet dips because dips aren’t just for nachos, buffalo chicken, and other savory dishes. Even desserts need something to up the flavors.
Here, you will find some fantastic dessert dip recipes to complement your favorite dessert recipes. Most of them need just a few ingredients to make, and voila! You have the best dessert dip.
1. Brownie Batter Dip
This brownie batter dip is a perfect brownie in dip form – absolutely decadent and full of chocolate flavors. But unlike brownies, this one’s easier to make, and there’s no need for an oven.
This sweet and creamy dip needs cream cheese, butter, whipped topping, a boxed brownie mix, and milk. For added flavor and texture, toss in a few mini chocolate chips, candies, or even brownie chunks.
This sweet dip sounds perfect on its own, and you can eat it as it is. But if you want, pretzels, graham crackers, and apple slices go perfectly well.
2. Oven S’mores Dip
Do the taste of s’mores take you down memory lane of late-night sleepovers and camping trips? Remember the good times with this easy oven s’mores dip – classic flavors but no need for a campfire, just an oven.
As expected, this s’mores dip contains milk chocolate chips and marshmallows. Contrary to expectations, the graham crackers aren’t incorporated into the dip. Instead, they’re served with it.
To make, melt chocolate chips in a skillet and cover with marshmallows. Toast them in an oven to achieve that iconic smoky flavor. Serve with graham crackers (of course), fresh fruit, vanilla wafers, and more.
3. Banana Cream Pie Dip
This creamy dessert dip from Princess Pinky Girl is irresistible. It captures the essence of a banana cream pie but transforms them into a convenient and tasty dip. It also feels a lot like banana pudding.
But how does it do that? If you have instant banana cream pudding, half and half, cream cheese, vanilla, powdered sugar, and whip topping, you can easily replicate this recipe.
If you want the complete experience, serve with some Nilla wafers, banana slices, and crushed graham crackers. To up the game, top the dip with toasted coconut or eat it with chocolate.
4. Samoas Dip
The girl scouts with their cookies don’t come to town often, so sometimes we must improvise. This samoas dip is one way to do so, as it incorporates the flavors of this countrywide favorite.
Since samoas dip is one of those cream cheese dips, you’ll need cream cheese. You’ll also need sweet shredded coconut, marshmallow fluff, caramel sauce, and chocolate sauce.
Before combining the dip ingredients, toast the coconut first until golden brown. Once everything’s mixed, top with more coconut, chocolate, and caramel sauce. This dip goes best with fruits, cookies, sweet crackers, and more.
5. Turtle Cheesecake Dip
Easy to make and delicious – you cannot pass on this tempting turtle cheesecake dip. It’s an absolutely rich, creamy, and flavorful dip that takes you to dessert heaven.
But of course, we can’t expect anything less from a cheesecake dip. Cheesecakes by themselves are already drop-dead good. How much more in convenient dip form?
The secret ingredient to this dip is Hershey’s Spreads in Chocolate. It provides indulgent flavors that are classic to a turtle cheesecake. Besides that, you’ll also need cream cheese, powdered sugar, cheesecake pudding mix, pecans, caramel sauce, and whipped topping.
6. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
Turning the world’s favorite cookie into a dip isn’t impossible. This simple but tasty recipe proves this. This dip has some classic chocolate chip cookie ingredients, like butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and chocolate chips.
Unlike the usual cookie, though, this one has cream cheese and powdered sugar. You can customize it by adding mint chocolate chips or using dark brown sugar instead of light.
There’s no flour or baking powder because this is a no-bake recipe! With just an electric mixer, you have a smooth and creamy dip perfect for crackers, wafers, pretzels, fruits, and more.
7. Chocolate Hummus
Hummus is typically a savory dip with spices, olive oil, beans, and lemon. It originated from the Middle East. This chocolate hummus is neither savory nor Middle Eastern, but it’s worth the try.
The classic hummus components, like garbanzo beans and salt, are still present in this recipe. What sets it apart from the usual hummus is the addition of maple syrup, vanilla extract, and unsweetened baking cocoa.
Because it doesn’t look like it has beans, most kids gobble it up, thinking it’s pudding. Thus, it’s an exciting and creative way to make them eat beans.
8. Snickerdoodle Dessert Hummus
This recipe from A Virtual Vegan is another sweet and unique rendition of hummus. Instead of chocolate, we’re doing snickerdoodle flavors this time. Snickerdoodle is a classic cookie, just like chocolate chip and sugar cookies.
It’s most similar to sugar cookies. However, while we usually roll sugar cookies in sugar only, snickerdoodles are often covered with cinnamon and sugar.
This snickerdoodle dessert hummus is perfect for fruits, crackers, pretzels, and many other simple snacks. Making this hummus is a breeze. You’ll need chickpeas, coconut milk, sugar, nut or seed butter, vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, and sea salt.
9. Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Dip
You can taste and smell cinnamon rolls from miles away. That may be a bit exaggerated, but really though, cinnamon rolls taste as great as they smell and look.
This cinnamon roll cheesecake dip is no less than its inspiration. It’s the frosting without the pastry, and we all know the frosting is the best part. All the sweet and cinnamon flavors are present.
This dip only has five ingredients: cream cheese, powdered sugar, cinnamon, butter, and sugar. You’ll need an electric mixer to combine some of the ingredients. When done, serve with apples, pretzels, or crackers.
10. Caramel Apple Dip
Making individual caramel apples for a crowd can be a hassle. Instead of going to lengths, just slice some fruits and make this caramel apple dip for a more effortless dessert.
There’s some layering involved in making this caramel apple dip. The bottom is a smooth, sweet cream cheese layer followed by a pre-made caramel dip or sauce.
A layer of toffee bits then tops the entire dish, providing extra sweetness, flavors, and texture. While this dish goes best with fresh and juicy apple slices, feel free to dip pretzels, cookies, and other treats.
11. Tropical Fruit Dip
We can’t have a compilation of sweet dip recipes without a fresh and fruity dip. This tropical fruit dip recipe from Betty Crocker is especially for cookies and fruit.
Although there’s an extensive ingredient list, only four ingredients are crucial for the dip. These are vanilla yogurt, flaked coconut, crushed pineapples, and brown sugar. For the best results, toast the coconut and include the pineapple juice.
You can serve these fruits and cookies with this dip: nectarines, strawberries, grapes, and fudge-striped cookies. However, feel free to pair it with any of your favorite treats.
