Cookie Dough Dip

So I guess it’s been about 3 months since I last updated. Work has been really busy. I barely ever have time to cook anymore. How sad is that?

I don’t even know what to write. A ton has happened since December. So I’m just going to talk about the last week or so. I spent last weekend (March 2-4) in Williamstown visiting college friends. It was quiet and relaxing, but it was so nice to get away from Madison for a bit and catch up with old friends.

After that I went to Birmingham for a few days for a work trip. Did some floor support, at some bbq, did lots of work at the hotel… all in all a pretty uneventful trip.

In other news, I hate daylight savings. It was so nice last week when it was light out when I got up for work. Now it’s all dark again at 6:30 and it’s so much harder to wake up.

Anyway, on to the dips. The dips were for church on Sunday. They were all pretty good, but in all honesty I was a little disappointed. The cream cheese flavor was a little overpowering. But they were all still pretty tasty on animal crackers and vanilla wafers. Maybe a bit of a sugar overload though.

Recipe from How Sweet It Is

Ingredients (per batch– I made 3 batches total)
For the base:
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 8oz package of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar

For chocolate chip cookie dough dip:
3/4 cups chocolate chips

For snickerdoodle dip:
2 tbsp cinnamon

For chocolate fudge dip:
1/2 cup cocoa powder
3/4 cups chocolate chips

In a saucepan, melt the butter. Whisk in the brown sugar until all the sugar dissolves and the mix starts to bubble. Take off the stove and add the vanilla extract.

With a spoon, mix the cream cheese and the powdered sugar together. Add the butter/brown sugar/vanilla extract and mix well.

For regular chocolate chip cookie dough dip:
Fold in chocolate chips.

For snickerdoodle dip:
Mix in cinnamon.

For chocolate fudge dip:
Mix in cocoa powder and chocolate chips. For more chocolate flavor, melt chocolate chips in the microwave and mix in until the desired chocolate-y-ness (yes, that’s a word) is reached.
