Chocolate Chip Dip “Blob”


Chocolate Chip Dip Blob

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.

Welcome to Mystery Dessert Theater 3000!

This is my wife’s fault. You can thank her or blame her but ultimately she encouraged me to start this blog.

I’m a dessert enthusiast, always have been. However, it wasn’t until recently that I discovered the stress relieving qualities of dessert making. I try out recipes from all over the internet and feed them to my family on Sunday nights. They’re good people so I don’t always know if the dessert really tastes good or if they’re just being nice.

Anyway, I will be sharing each week’s dessert experiment here, along with my brief commentary on the recipe and preparation process.  I will credit the source of each week’s recipe to the best of my ability.

I don’t have a catchy “sign-off phrase” so for now I’ll just tell you that it’s OK to have dessert first.
