30 Best Dessert Dips (+ Easy Recipes)

Just imagine the looks on your guests’ faces when they see a dessert table loaded with caramel, chocolate, and peanut butter yumminess.

Serve these with everything from cookies and brownies to piles of fresh fruit. You really can’t go wrong!

1. Caramel Apple Dip

This might look like nothing more than a baking dish full of thick caramel, but there’s a hidden layer of sweetened cream cheese, too.

Caramel alone is super sweet, and though I love to dip apple slices into a fresh batch, it can get sickly after a few bites.

That’s why this recipe is so dangerous. The creamy layer on the bottom balances it out perfectly, so you can enjoy it even more.

2. Tempting Turtle Cheesecake Dip

This tempting turtle cheesecake dip has everything you love about the candy and flips it into a luscious, scoopable treat.

It all starts with cheesecake, of course. Into that, you’ll swirl chocolate and caramel syrup before finishing it off with mini chocolate chips.

3. Chocolate Hummus (5 Minutes!)

If you’ve ever made chickpea blondies, you’ll know that when they’re blitzed with the right ingredients, you’d hardly know they’re there. 

In this case, the richness of the chocolate and peanut butter, along with a dash of maple syrup, masks the chickpea flavor, leaving nothing but smooth, sweet hummus.

4. Oven S’mores Dip

If you want something warm and ridiculously easy, this s’mores dip should be at the top of your list. 

It’s as easy as layering chocolate chips in the bottom and covering them with marshmallows. 

Bake and serve in a cast-iron skillet to keep it warm and the chocolate melted.

5. Four Ingredient Funfetti Cake Batter Dip

I can’t get over how adorable this dessert dip looks! Those confetti sprinkles really bring it to life, so I highly recommend using them if possible. 

Of course, regular jimmies will look amazing, too. After all, it’s more about how this tastes. And thanks to the Funfetti cake mix, it tastes just like cake batter.

6. Oreo Peanut Butter Dip Recipe

Sweet peanut butter and rich Nutella come together in this dessert dip to make something you won’t be able to stop eating. 

Add a generous helping on crushed Oreos, and this might be one you won’t want to share. 

7. Luscious Brownie Batter Dip

Do you like the lick the spoon after making brownies? Me too! So, needless to say, this is one tasty dessert sip. 

It’s lighter than real brownie batter but just as rich and flavorful. That said, you could omit the Cool Whip if you want it thicker. 

8. Cheesecake Dip Recipe

If you want to offer your guests the creamy and delectable taste of cheesecake without the hassle, you can’t beat this cheesecake dip. 

Serve it as is, or go ahead and make it your own with everything from a cinnamon sugar or mango compote swirl to cookie dough chunks or M&Ms.

9. Nutella Cheesecake Fruit Dip

Like caramel, Nutella can become cloying after a few bites (in my opinion). But if you want that fantastic nutty and chocolate taste, all you need to balance it out is cream cheese. 

For a lighter version, add Cool Whip once everything is blended. 

10. Salted Caramel Pecan Cheesecake Dip

There’s nothing I don’t love about that title! From the buttery and crunchy nuts to the smooth and sweet caramel, this might be my favorite. 

Toast the nits first to boost their flavor, and try sprinkling some sea salt over the top. It makes all the difference. 

11. Raspberry Cheesecake Dip

With its stunning pink hue, this would be the perfect dessert dip to serve for Valentine’s Day. Although, I would happily eat this any time of the year.

It’s so sweet and fruity, and I think it’s even better if you add some fresh berries to the mix. 

Try using frozen raspberries and a dash of honey in place of jam to cut down on the sugar. Alternatively, look for sugar-free preserves. 

12. Banana Cream Pie Dip Recipe

Is this essentially banana cream pie served in a bowl instead of a pie dish? Yes. Is it unbelievably scrumptious and addictive? You bet!

As tasty as this pie can be, not too many people want to mingle with a big slice of pie. Instead, this dip gives your guests the freedom to move and enjoy their dessert on the go. 

Serve with fresh banana slices and plenty of vanilla wafers.

13. Warm Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake Dip

Nothing can compare to a fresh, warm cinnamon roll smothered in cream cheese glaze. But this dessert dip comes close!

Not only is it served with hot and tender cinnamon rolls (made right out of the can), the filling is warm, sweet, and perfectly gooey. 

I suggest you cut the cinnamon rolls in half, so there’s more to go around. Also, maybe serve another plate on the side since I’m sure they’ll go fast.

14. Strawberry Cheesecake Dip

This lightened-up dessert dip isn’t as thick as some others, but that doesn’t mean it’s not as tasty.

Using fresh chopped strawberries adds a ton of natural flavor and fun texture, and the low-fat cream cheese just means you can have an extra helping or two.

15. Mint Chocolate Chip Dip

Are you looking for something to stand out on a crowded dessert table? How about a bowl of refreshing mint chocolate chip dip?

Loaded with mini chocolate chips, this dip has a terrific texture. Of course, you could also use chopped dark chocolate for something more subtle.

I prefer the smaller pieces because the bigger chips can be harder on the teeth once chilled.

16. Coconut Cream Pie Cheesecake Dip Recipe

This dip comes together in just five minutes, but there’s one key ingredient: you MUST use real, full-fat coconut cream. 

This stuff is thick and creamy and packed with incredible coconut flavor. 

The toasted coconut on top is optional, but I really enjoy the crunch.

17. Unicorn Dip

This is, without a doubt, the most fun and magical dessert dip around. And I bet the grown-ups will love it just as much as the kids. 

I have to warn you that it’s pretty sweet, but that’s part of the fun!

To keep the colors from blending too much, I like to add them into a piping bag as though you’re making rainbow cupcakes. Remember, the colors will blend with each dip of a cookie.

18. Watermelon Cheesecake Dip

This unique cheesecake dip is so fun and perfect for your next summer BBQ.

Though it doesn’t taste like watermelon, the fun colors, and mini-chocolate chips are sure to win over the crowd. 

19. Cherry Cheesecake Dip

Cherries are known to be slightly tart, which is why you’ll add marshmallow fluff to this dip. It’s sticky, sweet, and makes this super light and fluffy.

Luckily, the most you need to do is blend the fluff with cream cheese and Cool Whip. From there, just open a can of cherry pie filling and enjoy!

20. Oreo Dip

This cookies and cream dip is velvety smooth and intensely chocolatey. Oreos have the best flavor, so they stand out so well against the sweet cream cheese. 

Crush half of the cookies until they resemble breadcrumbs so that fantastic flavor will pop in every bite. Keep the other half chunky for added texture.

21. Red, White, and Blue S’mores Dip

This recipe uses edible spray to turn regular marshmallows red and blue. They’ll look far neater lined up if you can find the square kind. 

Or, if you’re feeling adventurous, why not try making your own marshmallows? That way, the color will be all the way, though, and not just on the top. 

22. Easy Fluffernutter Dip Recipe

If you grew up snacking on this peanut butter and marshmallow Fluff sandwich, you’ll go nuts for this Fluffernutter dessert dip.

It’s so sweet and creamy with just the right amount of nutty, salty goodness to cut through the Fluff. 

23. Heath Bar Apple Dip

Heath Bars are wonderfully crunchy and loaded with toffee and almonds. They’re creamy, crisp, and offer an outstanding balance of salty and sweet.

The best way to capture that for a dessert dip is to use the real thing! Heath Bits ‘O Brickle Toffee Bits will give you everything you’ll need, including crunch.

Raw cookie dough can be controversial, and though I eat it, I know plenty of people who would prefer not to eat raw eggs. 

The good news is that you can omit the eggs entirely in this cookie dough dip and still have that same nostalgic flavor. 

After all, it’s more about the blend of brown sugar, butter, and chocolate chips, right?

25. Gingerbread Cheesecake Dip

I think I want to make this just so I have an excuse to buy those adorable gingerbread sprinkles! How fun are they?

Aside from that, this spiced, brown sugar cheesecake dip is so good, you’ll need to make double.

26. Peanut Butter Dip

If you need a healthier dessert dip that still tastes like something sinful, this is the one to try. 

Peanut butter is smooth and brimming with wonderful flavor. So much so that you don’t need to add heavy cream cheese or whipped cream. 

Instead, why not try it with tangy Greek yogurt and a touch of maple syrup or honey?

Like monster cookies, this dip is jam-packed with colorful and crunchy M&Ms.

It’s nutty and chocolatey, plus, it’s full of oats for a nice chewy finish. Feel free to use crunchy peanut butter, but I wouldn’t advise organic, as it’s often quite oily.

28. Cannoli Dip

I adore cannolis, and I’ve seen a few recipes that claim to be cannoli-inspired dips. But, unfortunately, they almost always use cream cheese. 

You need both mascarpone and ricotta cheese to make a real, authentic cannoli dip. It’s that blend that makes this the best!

29. Eggnog Dip

Eggnog is already super creamy, thick, and perfectly spiced. So why wouldn’t you use it in a dessert dip?

Cream cheese is essential for this; otherwise, it won’t set enough to be scooped, but you can omit the rum and keep this kid-friendly if you prefer. 

30. Easy Key Lime Pie Dip

Here’s another terrific, light, and fluffy dessert dip that is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. 

You’ll use Greek vanilla yogurt along with cream cheese for something super tangy and luscious, plus plenty of fresh Key lime juice.

If you can’t find fresh Key limes, try online for bottled juice, or just use regular ones.
