I stumbled on a recipe for chocolate chip cookie dough dip earlier today. Stumble brings me a lot of recipes I want to make, but none seem to haunt me as much as this dip did. The entire time I was writing that last post, I was thinking about this dip. I don’t know why I just didn’t make it before, I bought the cream cheese for it when I was grocery shopping, so I had full intentions to make it. Now my biggest problem is that I don’t have a lot of gingersnaps left and that’s the only cookie I had to dip it in.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cups 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. I added the chocolate chips at this time so the mixer could break them up into pieces. You can so that, or just fold in the chocolate chips.
- Garnish with additional chopped chocolate. Serves with fruit, cookies, crackers, pretzels or a spoon.
