Cookie Dough Dip

This is a must make!!  This will knock your socks, pants, shirt, under-roos off!!!  I found this on one of my favorite food blogs ( http://www.howsweeteats.com/ ).  This gal makes some amazing things!  Unfortunately, they are typically not on my diet plan but when Mike and I found out that we were going to be going over to a friend's for a super bowl party, I knew exactly what I wanted to make!  Not only is it delish, it's also really easy to make!  Next time you have to make something or if you want to splurge some calories on a tasty treat, make this dip!

What you need:
  • 1/2 c butter
  • 1/3 c brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 8oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 c powdered sugar
  • 3/4 c mini chocolate chips
  • pretzels, vanilla wafers, animal crackers, fresh fruit (optional sides)

Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. When just melted, stir in brown sugar.  Stir constantly until the sugar is dissolved.  Make sure not to over cook or you will get caramel and that is no bueno!

Set aside and let cool slightly; when cooled, add in vanilla

In a separate bowl mix together cream cheese and powdered sugar

Mix the butter/sugar mix into the cream cheese/powdered sugar mix with the blender on slow

(btw, the godiva coffee in the background is sooo good!)

Once everything is mixed together, stir in the mini chocolate chips

Place mixture in the fridge for at least an hour before serving.  It allows the mixture to stiffen and the flavors to mingle.

We served it with vanilla wafers and pretzels.  Pretzels were Mike's idea and it was a stroke of genius!  It combines this girl's dream snack of sweet and salty.  I think that fresh fruit like apples and strawberries will be tasty, too.  I cannot wait to make this recipe again!

  1. I made this today for the first time, and I'm addicted!! Thank goodness I took it somewhere, because if I just made it for home, I'd eat it all! The pretzels were a great suggestion too!! Salty with sweet, the perfect combination!
