Simple Ingredients

This Christmas Cookie Dip recipe is quickly assembled in 10 minutes, making about 2 cups of dip. While sweet, this dip is not as dense as other dips, so it’s smooth and pairs well with graham crackers.

  • butter
  • cream cheese
  • vanilla Greek yogurt
  • flour (see note on flour)
  • powdered sugar
  • vanilla
  • sprinkles
  • Teddy graham or graham crackers

  1. Beat butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer until smooth and fluffy. You can always whip by hand if completely necessary, but I find that it takes so much longer and is harder to incorporate with the cream cheese. Plus, everyone likes to lick the beaters!
  2. Add yogurt, flour, sugar, and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  3. Manually Stir in 1/3 cup sprinkles (alternatively, mini chocolate chips).
  4. Spoon your cookie dough dip into a bowl and sprinkle top with the remaining 1 tablespoon sprinkles for color and decoration.
  5. Serve with apples, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, or pretzels.

Common Holiday Dip Questions

What kind of Sprinkles work best in cookie dip?

We like the look and texture of nonpareils, as shown, but jimmies, sanding sugar, confetti sprinkles, and round quins all work great for decorating.

Can flavored yogurt be used?

I used vanilla Greek yogurt with this dip, but as seasons rolled around, many fall-flavored yogurts hit the market. Try pumpkin spice, gingerbread, or any other flavor to mix this dip up, or make more than one kind for your party.

How to store Cookie Dip

Refrigerate any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 3 days.

I thought we couldn’t eat raw flour.

There is always a small risk that raw flour could contain salmonella bacteria. If this risk concerns you, put flour on a baking sheet and back for 10 minutes at 350 degrees before adding to a dessert dip.

Expert Christmas Dip Tips

Best way to soften Cream Cheese – Cream cheese can be softened in several ways.

  • The first is the most obvious – unwrap the foil around cream cheese and leave it on the counter for 15-30 minutes at room temperature.
  • The other method is to cut the cream cheese into smaller slices, which helps it reach room temperature even quicker.

How to bake flour to ensure zero salmonella – While it’s common to use bits of unbaked flour in dessert dips and other recipes without baking it, modern baking and cooking have highlighted that salmonella may be present in some uncooked flours.

To be ultra cautious, it’s best to make sure to use HEAT-TREATED flour or heat treat the flour yourself to kill any live bacteria. 

  • Oven – Spread flour into a casserole dish in a 350-degree preheated oven for 10 minutes. 
  • Microwave – Flour goes into a bowl and is heated in small 30 seconds. Stir and then check for temperature. Once the flour has reached 165 degrees, it is ready to be used. Be careful not to overheat the flour as it will harden.
