Brownie Batter Dip

Once again I had a bunch of cream cheese to use up, and this time it wasn’t going away without bringing a billion calories with it. Luckily, this dip is really delicious, but not something you need to eat a giant amount of to be content, so you can share the fat with your friends. Or at least pretend that you’re going to, and then eat it all yourself over a few days.

IMG_1379Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons milk, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • something to dip in the dip

In a large bowl, beat together the cream cheese and butter until smooth. This is much easier if you do actually take them out in time to become room temp.

IMG_1374Beat in the brown sugar, cocoa powder, flour, vanilla, salt, and 1 tablespoon of the milk, until smooth.

IMG_1375Beat in the powdered sugar and a second tablespoon of milk, until smooth again. You can add the remaining tablespoon of milk if you’d prefer a thinner dip, I didn’t find it necessary.

IMG_1377Serve with cookies, pretzel thins, or maybe some apple slices? Or just, of course, spoons.

    Hmmm, given that this is not actually baked, I am almost sure I could make an (almost) allergen-free version of this. I should try that — as soon as I find vegan cream cheese again.
