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_1376Mix in the chocolate chips.

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

My name's Corinne, and I like cake, cookies, and chocolate! Also, non-c-things such as ponies, Star Trek, and biking. (Over the summer, my bike glove tans will probably become pretty glaring in some of these photos.) I'll be sharing my adventures in the kitchen. Expect lots of recipes to have chocolate swapped in to replace other inferior ingredients.

    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.
