Hi! Here is a super easy mid-week recipe for you. I made this for a get together and I don’t have many photos of it, but a few people REALLY liked it, so I wanted to post in on the blog.
I came across this original recipe on How Sweet Eats. It sounded pretty good – she called hers Cookie Dough Dip. I thought if this tasted like cookie dough, I was all done. Put me to bed. But, turns out, it is more like a cheesecake dip. Nonetheless, it is still good. I made only one minor change.
It does look like cookie dough doesn’t it?
Cookie Dough Dip via How Sweet Eats with minor changes
makes about 1 1/2 cups
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 – 1 cup chocolate chips
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and whisk until sugar dissolves and mixture starts to bubble. Set aside to cool, and whisk in vanilla.
Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar for 60 seconds. With mixer on low speed, add in brown sugar and butter mixture. Mix until combined. Add chocolate chips.
Garnish with additional chocolate chips. Serve with animal crackers, graham crackers, apple slices or your finger.
If you like cream cheese, you will like this cookie dip. It is kind of fun to dip something other than just chips.
I think the lucky ones get a chocolate chip when they dip too. Kids love this recipe! Enjoy.
