Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip Recipe: a crowd pleaser!

Made this recipe this weekend for my niece's Confirmation Party and it was a hit!  If you love sweets, you will love it too.  Even though it is called cookie dough, it reminded me more of a thick frosting...of deliciousness.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
adapted from Jewel Bakes

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar, slightly packed
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 8 oz. cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
The Nitty Gritty:
  1. Medium saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar together.  Whisk together over medium-high heat until sugar is completely dissolved, about 4 minutes.  Remove from heat and add the vanilla.  Set aside pan and let completely cool.
  2. While you are waiting for the pan to cool, cream together the cream cheese and confectioners sugar for a couple minutes.  Slowly pour in the cooled butter/sugar mixture.  Beat on medium-high until mixture is completely combined but not separated.  Stir in chocolate chips at the very end.
  3. Serve with graham crackers, vanilla wafers, teddy grahams, animal crackers and/or whatever your heart desires!
