If you like cookies and cream ice cream or cheesecake you’ll probably love this dip. It has all of that cookies and cream flavor with the tang of cream cheese. Chopped white chocolate is folded in for extra flavor. Delicious!
This is a sweet dip but if you like a sweet/salty combo consider using pretzel rods, pretzels, potato chips, or Ritz crackers as dippers. Lorna Doones, ‘Nilla Wafers, graham crackers, and chocolate butter cookies are good dippers to use for a major sweet tooth. You can also use strawberries with this.
The cookies and cream dip will turn sort of a light brown color if you over stir it. The chocolate cookies sort of disintegrate into the cream cheese mixture. Fold the cookie pieces in quickly when you are finished making the dip – that should help it stay lighter… if it matters to you.
It goes together fast and easy for Superbowl or any other party. This dip would be great at bridal showers!
