Sugar Cookie Dip Ingredients
For your convenience in making this recipe, I’ve added shop-able ad links where possible. Read our disclosure policy here.
- Heavy whipping cream — chilled
- Cream cheese — softened
- Dry sugar cookie mix — You’ll use one package of cookie mix, depending on brand that will be 1 ¾ cups – 2 cups
- Vanilla extract — Optional, but adds a richer flavor
- Christmas sprinkles — Optional, for a festive touch. You can also switch this up for other holidays, such as Valentine’s Day!
Kitchen Tools Used
- Stand mixer or electric hand mixer with large mixing bowl
This is such an easy recipe that ANYONE can make it! It really only takes about 5 minutes to mix everything into a sweet treat fit for a party!
However, it will be easier to mix if your cream cheese is already softened, so plan ahead a little bit. Leaving the cream cheese out on the counter for 30 minutes to 1 hour should be plenty of time.
Mixing time is 5 minutes. Total time, including getting your supplies together, is probably about 10 minutes. Doesn’t get much faster than that!
- Add heavy whipping cream to a large bowl and beat on high with electric mixer until stiff peaks form. You can also use a stand mixer for this recipe.
- Add softened cream cheese and vanilla extract (if using) and beat on high for 1 minute.
- Add the package of dry sugar cookie mix, reduce speed to medium, and mix for one more minute (or until combined).
- Scoop dip into a serving bowl and top with sprinkles. You can fold the sprinkles in, or simply leave them on top for decoration.
How to Store Cookie Dip
Because it includes dairy ingredients like whipping cream and cream cheese, you’ll want to keep your Christmas cookie dip refrigerated until you’re ready to serve. It also tastes fabulous chilled!
Any leftovers should be covered or placed in an airtight container and back in the refrigerator. Generally, dips like this can stay good in the fridge for a few days. It kind of depends on the condition of the leftovers. If it was something you served after dinner and portioned out with a spoon, keeping the leftovers should be fine. If it was left out on a table at a party and kids were double-dipping in it, you might want to just toss anything that’s left.
What to Serve with Sugar Cookie Dip
I mean, it’s tasty enough to eat right out of the bowl, but if you’re serving this at a party, you’ll want some snacks to go with your dip! Here are some of my favorite ideas:
- Graham crackers
- Vanilla wafers
- Pound cake
- Pretzel twists
- Jumbo Marshmallows
- Chocolate graham crackers
How Long Can Dessert Dips Stay out at Room Temperature?
Just like savory dips made with cream cheese, this sweet dip should be kept refrigerated. Of course, when you’re serving to guests, you’ll want it easily accessible.
It’s fine to have your cookie dip out on the table for an hour or two. After that point, bacteria growth is possible. (Yea, that doesn’t sound pleasant, but it’s the reality of food safety!)
I recommend storing your dip in the fridge until after dinner or whenever you plan to serve. It tastes great chilled anyway! If it’s an appetizer, place it back into the fridge during dinner and bring it back out afterwards. You get the idea!
