a.k.a. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
from Brown Eyed Baker
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 (8-oz) pkg cream cheese
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
3/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
In a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt the butter and the brown sugar. Stir continuously, until the brown sugar dissolves. It will end up looking like a caramel colored roux. When it's done remove the saucepan from the heat and stir in vanilla extract (It will bubble incredibly so watch out). Set aside and let cool a bit.
In a seprate bowl beat the cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar until smooth and then slowly beat in the cooled caramel mixture. Add the chocolate chips and stir with a rubber spatula. (It truly will look like raw chocolate chip cookie dough.)
Put the dip into a serving bowl and refrigerate until 20 minutes before serving. It needs a bit of time to soften. I'm serving mine with Nilla Wafers but I have read that Graham Crackers would work as well.
I truly thought this would taste just like cookie dough, it doesn't hence me calling it Chocolate Chip Caramel Cream Dip. Doesn't matter either way though it tastes so wonderful. Mmm-mmm-good.
Wonder what everyone will think,
