How to make Oreo dip from scratch?

  1. Make the whipped topping: First, in a large mixing bowl with an electric hand mixer or the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, whip the whipping cream, milk powder, two tablespoons of powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until stiff peaks form. Put the cream in a separate large bowl and place it in the refrigerator until needed.
  2. Whip the cream cheese: Then, using the same cream bowl, beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar for two minutes or until it is smooth, light, and fluffy. Carefully use a spatula to fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until it is combined.
  3. Smash Oreos: Next, place Oreos in a plastic bag and use a rolling pin to crush them into smaller pieces. After, gently fold it into the cream cheese mixture.
  4. Top with remaining Oreos: Finally, scoop the delicious dip into a serving bowl and top with more crushed Oreos if you want. Serve your sweet treat with your favorite dippers.

Recipe variations:

  • Instead of classic Oreos: Try using a different Oreo flavor for new and unique flavors. We suggest mint Oreos, golden Oreos, or chocolate cream Oreos.
  • More chocolate: For even more delicious flavor, add some chocolate chips to your dip.
  • Crunchy dip: If you want a crunchy dip, toss in some chopped peanuts, walnuts, pecans, or walnuts.
  • Other flavors: This delicious dessert can also be changed to other flavors with different extracts like chocolate, peppermint, or hazelnut.
  • Lower fat: For less fat, you can use low-fat cream cheese, but it will not be as creamy.
  • Add butter: Too sweet for you? Add 1/2 cup butter to your Oreo dip to balance out the sweetness.

Frequently asked questions

What other cookies can I use?

Rather than using Oreo cookies, you can make cookies and cream dip with any kind of chocolate sandwich cookie. If you do not want chocolate, try using vanilla wafers, graham crackers, or vanilla sandwich cookies. The sandwich cookies are great for this because the cream in the middle adds extra creaminess to your dessert dip.

How can I make this sugar-free?

You can still have a creamy dip if you are diabetic or are on a keto diet. In fact, Oreo makes sugar-free cookies, you can use powdered sugar substitutes, and there are several options for cream cheese. Neufchatel cheese is one of the best with less than one gram of sugar. Mascarpone is another great choice, but it has one gram of sugar and more fat. Sour cream would be good too with just 0.3 grams of sugar.

Who invented Oreo cookie dip?

This dessert dip recipe could have been made long ago but nobody has written the recipe until recently. It was Sam Porcello who invented the Oreo cookie and he was a scientist, not a chef. Speaking of dip, we are not sure who was the first to dip Oreos in milk either. It could have been Sam Porcello, but he did not like them dunked in milk. In fact, he did not really like cookies much at all.

How is this different from Oreo fluff?

This creamy sweet dip is very similar to Oreo fluff, but Oreo dip is made with a cream cheese mixture instead of pudding. Fluff also has cream cheese but with the pudding, it tastes different than Oreo dip and has a different texture. They are both made with crushed Oreos and powdered sugar, and both are incredibly delicious.

How to store leftovers:

  • Store: You can store your leftover dip in an airtight container in the fridge. It will stay fresh for up to five days.
  • Freeze: Although you could freeze your Oreo dip for up to three months, the texture may turn grainy. Be sure to put it in a freezer-safe airtight container.
  • Thaw: For the best texture and flavor, thaw in the fridge overnight before using.

Recipe tips:

  • To save prep time, you can use Cool Whip or another store-bought whipped topping instead of making your own homemade whipped cream. Then, you only need three ingredients: Oreos, cream cheese, and powdered sugar.
  • You want chunks of Oreos, not fine crumbs. That is why you should use the bag method instead of a food processor or blender.
  • For a more intense cream flavor, add an extra teaspoon of vanilla extract or a bit of vanilla syrup.
  • According to the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, American servings have doubled in the past 20 years. Even this Oreo dip should be eaten in moderation.
  • If your dip is refrigerated for some time, let it sit out for about 30 minutes to soften for easier dipping.
  • Make sure your cream cheese is softened to room temperature before using it.
  • Do not skip the whip! For smooth and creamy Oreo dip, you have to whip the cream cheese before adding the rest of the ingredients.
