This brownie batter dip tastes just like eating real brownie batter without the raw eggs! Its chocolatey creamy deliciousness. Perfect with pretzels, cookies or fruit!
I love all things brownies, and even a spoonful of brownie batter before baking the brownies. But wanting to avoid consuming too many raw eggs – this brownie batter dip is the perfect thing.
It tastes just like real brownie batter. Its chocolatey, creamy and totally delicious. And it has zero eggs in it and just a little bit of whole milk so its perfect for those with egg allergies or any of us who just love the taste of brownie batter.
This delicious chocolate dip is easy to make too because it uses an actual boxed brownie mix for the base and the delicious brownie flavor. I added in some cream cheese and some cool whip too (so make sure to keep it in the fridge before consuming) to make it super creamy and good.

How to store brownie batter?
If you do have leftovers, cover the bowl in plastic wrap, and store it in the fridge for up to 3 or 4 days. I do not recommend freezing the dip to store.

What about the uncooked flour in the mix?
Sorry I added a note how to heat treat the brownie mix!
Too sweet for us. Ended up trashing it
Joseph Whittemore says
If I just do the brownie mix and milk, would I get a frosting?
Im not sure how that would hold up. I’ve got a recipe for brownie batter frosting in my cook book with butter, milk, brownie mix and powdered sugar.

My husband concerned that it means we are eating raw flour. I just finished making it and it tastes delicious, but I don’t want to cause digestive probs! Please comment and happy new year!
Hi Laurel, sorry Im slow to respond it was a busy holiday weekend. I have never personally had issues with eating raw flour and only recently was it drawn attention to that it was an issue, in the future you can cook the brownie mix/flour in the oven for a few minutes at 350 before making the mix and that should get rid of any bacteria issues the flour may have!
This looks AMAZING, I am totally going to try it with a gluten free mix!
