There are many things I love about the holidays, and one of them is all the fun and festive food. I find myself spending more time in the kitchen than ever before this time of the year, and while it’s generally a good thing, sometimes I don’t have the time or energy to spend 2 hours on a complicated creation. I created this Christmas cookie dough dip when I needed a last minute dessert for a holiday party and it was a HUGE hit! It tastes just like sugar cookie dough, but without the eggs so you can dip to your heart’s content!

How do you make Christmas cookie dough dip?
This recipe is so simple – traditional cookie dough ingredients like butter, sugar and flour get whipped with a mixer and combined with cream cheese and Chobani® Non-Fat Vanilla Blended Greek Yogurt for a smooth and creamy dip that’s irresistibly delicious. I added a generous helping of sprinkles in holiday colors but you can make this dip year round with other sprinkles too. Best of all, this dip comes together in just 5 minutes!
The secret ingredient here is really the Chobani® yogurt – it’s what gives the dip its texture and adds a bit of a pleasant tang to counteract the richness of the cookie dough flavorings. It’s also lighter substitute for something like sour cream.
I buy the larger 32-ounce container of yogurt, my kids love to eat it for breakfast. I love that this yogurt is all natural, high in protein, low in fat and has no artificial flavors or sweeteners. In fact, I used the yogurt I had left over from this recipe as part of their breakfast and topped it with a pinch of leftover sprinkles, they thought it was the best thing ever!
I used a variety of fresh fruit, pretzels, miniature gingerbread men and graham crackers as dippers for this cookie dough dip, you can use whatever you like best. My favorite was actually the sliced apples.
This Christmas cookie dip is the perfect addition to your menu for Christmas day. Serve it as a snack while opening presents, as an appetizer before the big meal or as a sweet finish.

It should be 1/4 cup dip per serving.
Hello. I was thinking of making this recipe with my oldest two boys for Christmas. It looks fairly easy enough. Will there be a difference in consistency if I do not have a mixer and I hand stir it?
A mixer is the best way to make sure the cream cheese is completely smooth in the dip, you can stir by hand but the dip might be a little bit lumpy!
Will the dye in the sprinkles “run” if you stir or electric mix in? I don’t want the dip to turn brown from the colors spreading.
It depends on what kind of sprinkles you use. The “jimmy” type of sprinkles are coated and don’t run, but the tiny non pareil sprinkles might run. I’ve never had an issue with the colors running. As long as you avoid the non pareil sprinkles you should be fine!
how far in advance can you make this dip and how long Will it last in the fridge or freezer?
You can make it up to one day in advance and store it in the fridge. You should add the sprinkles on top right before serving. This dip won’t freeze well!
Just made this for my ladies church group meeting tonight! Tastes fabulous! I added some red glitter sprinkles to make it festive (I now have a pretty pink dish to take)! I hope everyone love it!
I added a small scoop of plain protein powder to the flour and used coconut flour (kept the measurements the same)! Worked beautifully!
This recipie is awesome I can’t wait for me and the love bug to try it.
My husband did not care for the yogurt either. I put in 1/2 of the small tub of cool whip instead and it worked out fine. This is a great recipe. Just made the change for personal tastes.
Cool whip is a great substitute for the yogurt!
Stupid question…is it unsalted butter or regular?
You can use either, I often use salted because it helps to offset the sweetness a bit.
Anything to take the tart away? I like it but family doesn’t like the after taste.
Did you use vanilla Greek yogurt not unsweetened? You could try adding another tablespoon or two of sugar to offset it.
Hi, this dip sounds great in theory, however, raw flour is a no-no, and can cause bad belly pain! The flour would need to be toasted at the very least, or left out entirely. This recipe is just not safe as is. I might give it a try, and toast the flour first.
You can omit the flour if it bothers you!
I thought the same thing. The FDA warms against eating raw flour due to contamination.
You can bake the flour at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes if you’re concerned, that will kill any potential bacteria!
So you got the gingerbread cookies at Walmart too??
Yes I did, in the holiday area!
