Cookie Dough Dip Reviews

I went to a family party a few weeks ago and my husband's aunt served some Monster Cookie Dough Dip. It was really good and I decided to explore cookie dough dips myself. I wanted to do some side by side comparisons of different varieties. The perfect opportunity came up with my son's birthday party. He decided to invite a few buddies over for an all day video game & food fest. Instead of cake he wanted cookie dough. My kids always want to eat cookie dough but I won't let them because of the raw egg! I came up with 4 different flavors and served them with regular & chocolate animal crackers and vanilla wafers for dipping.
For Chocolate Chip I tried this recipe which uses cream cheese. It was good, but didn't taste like cookie dough. More like a creamy pie filling with chocolate chips and M&Ms. My taste testers liked this but not as cookie dough. 2 days later and we still have a little of this in the fridge. I will not make a cookie dough dip recipe with cream cheese again.
I bookmarked a recipe for Double Fudge Cookie Dough Dip recipe and when I went back to bookmark it I could not find it. Luckily I had written the recipe down. Instead of chocolate chips I added Reece's Pieces. This one was VERY yummy and actually tasted like cookie dough. The consistency was right too. It was my FAVORITE and I'll eat it right off the spoon! I will definitely serve this again!! No more of this left!!!
Double Fudge Cookie Dough Dip

1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon vanilla
milk or heavy cream
chocolate chips or candy

Combine the butter & sugars, mix the flour, cocoa, & salt in another bowl
and then mix in with the wet mixture. Add vanilla. Add milk or cream a very
small amount at a time until it's the consistency that you want. I guess that I used 
about 1/4 cup of heavy cream. Add your chocolate chips or candies. Refrigerate.

I also did this Sugar Cookie Dough recipe. I divided the batter in half and put sprinkles in half for sugar cookies and cinnamon in the other half for snickerdoodles. This recipe was the least favorite. The snickerdoodle idea was a dud! I had to throw it out after the party. This is more of a cream dip, like the one you use for fruit, rather than cookie dough. The rest of the dough (without sprinkles or cinnamon) is still in my fridge. Sweets never last around here!
I am going to check out a few more recipes or maybe even mess with the Chocolate Fudge recipe and see how it turns out. Memes I link to listed here.
