Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip


What a fun and easy dip to make!  This is, in my opinion, a perfect addition to a holiday appetizer buffet.  It will keep the little kids happy and the adults coming back for just one more taste.  I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to take this to a dear friend's house for a simple Christmas get-together.

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
adapted from Macaroni & Cheesecake

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 (12 ounces total) pkgs. cream cheese
1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
3/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

Directions:
In a small saucepan, place butter & brown sugar over medium heat. Stir continuously until butter melts and brown sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. Allow to cool.

Meanwhile, in the bowl of a stand mixer, beat together cream cheese and confectioner's sugar for 1 minute. Once creamy, slowly mix in the cooled butter mixture and beat for 1 minute or so, until fully incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.

Pour into serving dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes prior to serving. Take dish out of refrigerator a little bit before serving so it can soften up.  Serve with vanilla wafers or cookie of your choice.
