I’m not gonna lie, I made this with the intention of eating it before dinner. Actually, I had planned on it being an afternoon conquest. I made the first “blob” and it seemed small so I made a second one and combined them. By the time dinner was ready, seven of us had contributed to the effort and only half of the dip was gone and there wasn’t a whole lot of room left over for dinner. It’s hard to walk away from, eat at your own risk.
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
- 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar (that’s powdered sugar for us normal folks…)
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup (6 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips
- Graham cracker sticks (1 box is not enough)
In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.
Add the sugars and vanilla; beat until smooth.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Chill in fridge until dip becomes firm (approx 30min – 1hr)
Serve with graham cracker sticks.
*Notes: I used an electric mixer so I opted to do all the mixing/beating in a large bowl, I’m not a fan of cleaning cream cheese off of my kitchen walls. I also changed the amount of brown sugar from 2 tablespoons (original recipe) to 1/3 cup. I know, it’s a big jump but it helps tame the tart flavor of the cream cheese.
