Homemade Brownie Batter Dip Ingredients

What you’re going to love the most about our recipe is how few ingredients you’ll need to make it. Just 5 ingredients- and, if you’re big dessert people like us, you probably have most or all of the ingredients already! Here’s what you need:

Homemade Brownie Batter Dip Ingredients.
  • Brownie Mix – We used Betty Crocker brownie mix for this recipe- the 18oz box, specifically. We imagine most other brands will work, just try to get close to the same size box.
  • Cream Cheese – Let this soften before using it to make this dessert dip.
  • Milk
  • Frozen Whipped Topping – Like Cool Whip or whatever store-brand product you can find. Let thaw before using.
  • Chocolate Chips – Mini chocolate chips make for a great garnish or topping for our Brownie Dip. They’re technically optional, but we highly recommend adding them!

How to make Brownie Batter Dip

After you’ve got all the ingredients for the dip, it couldn’t be much simpler to make! Here’s all you’ll have to do:

Using a hand mixer to make edible brownie batter dip.
  1. Pour dry brownie mix into medium bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Whisk briefly and return to the microwave for another 30 seconds. Whisk and microwave another 30 seconds before setting aside to cool.
  2. In separate bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Once smooth, add in brownie mix and milk and beat until blended together.
  3. Add in whipped topping and fold together to combine. Transfer to serving bowl and top with chocolate chips for garnish.


Can’t find some of the ingredients for our Brownie Dip recipe? We’ve got a few substitutions you can give try:

  • Brownie Mix – Brownie mix helps cut down on prep time and extra ingredients in our recipe. If you don’t have any on hand, consider subbing in some confectioner’s sugar and baking cocoa instead- maybe a little vanilla and butter as well.
  • Frozen Whipped Topping – If you don’t have any Cool Whip sitting around, you’re not out of luck! Grab some heavy whipping cream, whip it up, and use it instead.
  • Chocolate Chips – The chocolate chips are, again, technically optional. If you still want a chocolate topping for your Brownie Dip, feel free to chop a chocolate bar into chunks or shave chocolate over your finished dessert dip.


Looking for ways to mix this recipe up? Here’s a couple you can try:

  • Serving – You can serve this dessert dip with cookies, fruits, or even crackers. We served ours with some strawberries, pretzels, and Oreo cookies- other options include animal crackers, apples, or wafer cookies.
  • Other Brownie Mix Flavors – We used this pretty standard milk chocolate brownie mix to make our dip. Consider subbing something in like a dark chocolate or fudge brownie mix to amp up the chocolate flavors.

Storage / Freezing

Storage: While you could serve your Brownie Batter Dip up right away, we think it tastes better if you give it a bit of time to sit in the fridge. Keep in a resealable container and keep for 2-3 days- 4 if you want to push it.

Freezing: Between the cream cheese, milk, and Cool Whip, we don’t think this will hold up very well in the freezer. As things freeze and then thaw, the texture will get grainy and unpleasant. If you’re dead-set on freezing this dessert dip, optionally mix with a bit of heavy cream and keep in a freezer-safe container. It’ll be safe to eat for 2-3 months, but for the best texture we’d recommend using within 1-2 weeks.

Top tip

Be sure to microwave the brownie mix, this step is important.
