How to make Viral Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip 

  1. Combine for creaminess: In a mixing bowl, whisk together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  2. Peanut Butter Fusion: Introduce the peanut butter to the mix, followed by powdered sugar and vanilla, and continue to blend until the peanut butter mixture is smooth.
  3. The Fun Part—Mix-ins: Gently fold in mini peanut butter cups and chocolate chips, saving some extra peanut butter cups for the final topping.
  4. Serving and Storing: Transfer to a serving bowl, sprinkle the remaining candy and chocolate chips on top, and it’s ready to serve! If, by some miracle, there’s dip left over, it’ll hang out just fine in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Note: This dessert dip recipe is moderately sweet at first taste. But once you add a dipper like a cookie or an apple to it, the sweetness is noticed. Be careful not to jump the gun and add extra sugar. 

Create Your Signature Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Dip

Transforming this classic dip into something distinctly yours is a piece of cake—or, in this case, a scoop of dip!

  • Peanut Butter Varieties: Venture beyond the creamy classic. Crunchy peanut butter adds texture, while almond or cashew butter can bring a new flavor profile to the mix.
  • Sweeten It Your Way: Adjust the powdered sugar to your liking. A little less makes it more peanut-forward; a little more for those with a sweeter tooth.

  • Flavor Twists: Swap out the vanilla extract for almond or maple extract.
  • Mix-in Magic: Stir anything from crushed cookies to chopped nuts or cereal for a fun texture.
  • Topping Tricks: Finish with a drizzle of homemade fudge sauce, caramel, or even a sprinkle of sea salt for a gourmet touch.

Remember, there are no rules in the dips world—only delicious experiments waiting to happen.

Preserving Reese’s Dip

Enjoying your dip to the fullest means storing it properly. Here’s your guide to keeping it as fresh as when you first made it:

  • Airtight Is Right: Oxygen is the enemy of freshness. Seal your dip in an airtight container to keep it from absorbing fridge flavors.
  • Chill Out: The refrigerator is the optimal spot for your dip, keeping it chilled and extending its life.

  • Time Frame: Ideally, enjoy your dip within three days for the best quality. Past that, it’s still safe to eat, but the quality may decline.
  • Serving Suggestions: When you’re ready to indulge again, let the dip sit at room temperature for 10–15 minutes for easier scooping.

Sweet Treat Tips for Dessert Dip

  • Texture Options: Peanut butter can significantly affect the dip’s texture. For a velvety smooth dip, use creamy peanut butter. If you prefer a bit of crunch and contrast, opt for a crunchy variety.
  • Whipping the Base: To achieve a light and fluffy consistency, beat the cream cheese until it’s airy and smooth before adding other ingredients. This step is crucial for a dip that’s not too dense.
  • Sweet Balance: Gradually add powdered sugar to taste. It’s easier to sweeten the dip than to correct oversweetening. Vanilla extract complements the sugar and should be mixed enough to enhance the dip’s flavor without overpowering it.

Choosing the Perfect Dippers 

When it comes to what you can dunk into your Peanut Butter Cheesecake Dip, the sky’s the limit! Here’s how to select a favorite dipper for this perfect party dip.

Sweet Sensations:

  • Graham Crackers: A classic dipper, they add a honeyed crunch that pairs beautifully with the creamy richness of the dip. Animal crackers are also a great choice. 
  • Cookies: Oreos, chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, nutter butter, vanilla wafers, or shortbread can be a delightful contrast to the dip’s smooth texture. Mini cookies work great!

Savory Meets Sweet:

  • 🥨 Pretzels: Their saltiness contrasts perfectly with the sweet dip, creating a satisfying balance. (my personal favorite for a fluffy dessert dip)
  • Salted Crackers: A buttery cracker with a hint of salt enhances the flavors in the peanut butter and chocolate.

Fresh and fruity:

  • Apple Slices: The freshness and slight acidity of apples cut through the richness of the dip. Try with green apple slices, too! 🍎
  • Banana Slices: Bananas and peanut butter are a time-honored combination; dipping them enhances this classic pairing.
  • Strawberries: Their tartness and juiciness offer a refreshing bite that cleanses the palate between dips.

For the adventurous:

  • Bacon Strips: If you’re feeling adventurous, the smoky flavor of bacon dipped into the sweet dip makes for an unexpected yet delicious choice.

Equipment

  • mixing bowl
  • Rubber Spatula

Ingredients
 

  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese softened
  • ¼ cup Unsalted Butter softened
  • ½ cup Creamy Peanut Butter suggested: Reese's Peanut Butter Brand
  • cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
  • 1 cup Mini Reese's peanut butter cups + extra for garnish
  • ¼ cup Mini Chocolate Chips + 1 tablespoon for garnish

Dippers

  • pretzels, graham crackers, Nilla wafers, strawberries, apple slices suggested.

Instructions

  • Before Getting Started:—-> About 20 minutes before making this recipe, pull out the cream cheese and butter and unwrap them so they soften up. This makes mixing a lot easier.
  • Blend the Base: In a bowl, combine the cream cheese and butter until they're well integrated. We use a rubber spatula.
  • Sweeten and Flavor: Add peanut butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla, continuing to beat until the mixture is silky smooth.
  • Mix-In Magic: Gently fold the chopped Reese's peanut butter cups and mini chocolate chips.
  • Ready to Serve: Transfer the dessert dip into a serving bowl, sprinkle with the extra chopped peanut butter cups and chocolate chips as a topping, and it's ready to enjoy! If not serving immediately, cover and refrigerate.

Serving Suggestions

  • Pair this creamy dip with a variety of dippers, such as pretzels for a salty crunch, graham crackers for a sweet crunch, or fresh fruit.

Notes

Note: All dip recipes made with cream cheese will harden up once back in the fridge (as cream cheese does). To keep this dip easily dippable, it should be pulled out of the fridge for 10–15 minutes before serving.
Dipper Pairings: The fun part is choosing what to dip. Apple slices add a crisp, refreshing bite; animal crackers introduce a playful crunch; and a variety of cookies can offer sweetness to every mouthful. Choose dippers that will hold up to the dip’s thickness and complement the peanut butter flavors.
Try topping it with sea salt for a more gourmet touch.
