Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip
Seven ingredients and five minutes are all you need for this rich and decadent peanut butter cup cheesecake dip! Perfect to share at parties and tailgates, this make-ahead dip is full of chopped peanut butter cups and delicious with pretzels and graham crackers.
Day Two of our Super Bowl Party week, and we’re going sweet. Really sweet. Like, over-the-top decadently so, with a rich and creamy (yet oh-so-easy) peanut butter cup cheesecake dip!
Do you love peanut butter? Do you love cheesecake? How about peanut butter cups? Then you are going to love this dip!
I know appetizers and finger-foods are key for football parties, but people love desserts, too! I’ve made this chocolate chip cookie dough dip for many football parties in the past, and people rave about it.
Dessert dips are totally the way to go when it comes to hosting a big crowd. Easy to make, make ahead of time, and you can snack one handed while crowding around the TV.
The Easiest Dessert Dip
Seven ingredients. Five minutes. That’s all you need to make this peanut butter cup cheesecake dip. Perfect for your Super Bowl party.
To make this dip, you need:
- cream cheese
- brown sugar
- peanut butter
- vanilla extract
- heavy cream
- peanut butter cups
That’s it. I’d also recommend things to dip into it, but you know, fingers, spoons, etc., are all just as delicious. The vehicle you use to get the dip into your mouth really doesn’t matter all that much.
Make Ahead Cheesecake Dip
Not only does this only require seven ingredients, you can make the whole thing ahead of time! Days ahead of time. Make it on Wednesday after work and enjoy it on Sunday for your Super Bowl party.
Nothing makes entertaining easier than checking things off your list way in advance.
You can serve the dip right out of the fridge, but it’s pretty hard and stiff. As the cream cheese and butter chill in the fridge, the dip gets more solid. It’s hard to scoop some up with a graham cracker or pretzel without it breaking.
My advice: let it sit out at room temperature for 20-30 minutes, then give it a quick whip with an electric mixer. Store it in tupperware, scoop it into your mixer bowl (or any bowl to use with a hand mixer), whip it back to a fluffy state, and scoop into a serving bowl.
Arrange some dippable things around it, and you’re done.
What to Serve with Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip
A spoon. That’s all you need. (Ha.)
In all seriousness, basically anything that you would eat with peanut butter is delicious in this dip. Graham crackers. Vanilla wavers. Chocolate chip cookies.
The salty-sweet combination is the best so I love pretzels with a big scoop of this cheesecake dip. Maybe even potato chips?
Want to add a little fruit to your dessert table? Apples or frozen banana slices are amazing with this dip. (And basically makes it a health food right? Right….? No, okay fine.)

Dont feel bad i dont lie cheesecake either! But looks like a great dip for parties, have alot of friends getting married, having babies this year. So lots of parties! Also I couldn’t stand kool-aid or jello during pregnacy and still don’t
This dip looks so good. Bet it would be perfect with apple slices and graham cracker sticks! I don’t think there was anything that I didn’t want while pregnant, thankfully!
UMMM Yes please! Cheesecake dips are a weakness of mine… perfect timing for the Super Bowl!
You’re not crazy, I’m not a huge cheesecake fan, either! But I know lots of other people who would go crazy for this dip, especially with the peanut butter factor! I’m really glad my pregnancy aversions did not carry forward, because that would mean a life now w/o coffee or red wine, and I’m not sure I could countenance that. 🙂
Wow! Looks like a delicious indulgence all the way around. I bet the flavors are amazing!
This looks so incredibly tasty! I think I’d be slapping people’s hands away from the bowl when they came near it!
Giiiiirl! This looks TO DIE FOR. Reese’s are THE BEST and so is cheesecake. What a great sweet, tangy treat!
If you can whip up something delicious like this dip in 5 minutes, you are good to go and enjoy the game yourself too (not just the boys). I am coming over! =D
Wow, this looks amazing, so decadent. What a nice treat for myself, so quick too, thanks for sharing!
I have a good friend who would go bonkers for this dip!! It does look so creamy and decadent…thank you for sharing!!
Yes, I love Peanut Butter Cups! Yes, I love cheesecake! Who doesn’t love cheesecake?! 😉 Seriously though, my whole family would go nuts over this dip on Super Bowl Sunday. Thanks for the idea! And Go Eagles! 😉
This must taste incredibly satisfying, all these goodness in one dip! I know my kids would just eat this from the bowl with their spoons !:)
The sweet and salty combination of this dip and the pretzels has me drooling. I always favor those kinds of treats and I want to make this for every party I ever attend!
I’m thinking that I happened to stumble across this wonderful dessert dip right on time! We are hosting a birthday party tomorrow and I have a feeling this is going to be a huge hit. I have all the ingredients and am happy it goes together in just a few minutes! Thanks for sharing.
This might be the best thing I’ve ever seen! Cheesecake, peanut butter cups, what more could I want? This would be so great for entertaining!
I made this for a dip contest at work and it won Best Overall! Great recipe and super easy. I like it best with pretzels.
Awesome to hear — congratulations!! So glad you (and the judges!) liked it so much. 🙂
