Dessert dips aren’t just for dessert, they make a tasty snack for any occasion. Easy to whip up and fun to customize, they are perfect for hosting your next party, spending a night in, or just craving something sweet.
Different than the traditional cheesy and hearty dips I like to serve, I have a monster sweet tooth that has me craving dessert all the time.
I know I am not alone, so I am going to share some of my favorite easy dessert dips. This way you can control that sweet tooth if you have one too.
One of the best things about them is that they are most often a quick no bake dessert recipe!
What is a dessert dip?
A dessert dip is a sweet, creamy mixture, often with a base of cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, whipped cream, cool whip, or yogurt.
They can be flavored and colored and garnished with all sorts of fun things like sprinkles, chocolate chips, and chopped peanut butter cups.
Once they are ready, serve them with dippable snacks like cookies, fruits, or pretzels.

What are popular flavors for dessert dips?
Popular flavors include chocolate chip, peanut butter, cookie dough, cheesecake, and fruit-based dips like lemon, strawberry, or key lime.
What can you dip into dessert dips?
I like to use just about anything, including a spoon or my finger, but here are my favorite dippers:
- Fresh fruit
- Cookies (Chocolate Chip cookies, or other cookies)
- Graham crackers
- Animal crackers
- Vanilla wafers
You can dip fresh fruits (like strawberries or apple slices), cookies, pretzels, graham crackers, marshmallows, or even brownie bites.
How long can they sit out?
Since most of the recipes have a dairy base like cream cheese or whipped cream, I don’t recommend leaving them at room temperature for more than an hour. If you need to have them out longer, I recommend placing the serving bowl on ice or another chilled serving platter.
How long do they last?
Most dessert dips can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3-5 days.
Can you make them ahead of time?
Absolutely! Many dessert dips can be made a day or two in advance, making them perfect for gatherings or events.
Can I make dessert dips healthier?
Yes, many dessert dips can be made using Greek yogurt or low-fat cream cheese as a base. You can also incorporate fresh fruits and natural sweeteners to cut down on sugar.
Serve them with fresh fruit instead of cookies and other sweet crackers.
