I adapted this recipe from one I found online a few years ago to better fit my tastes. It doesn't exactly taste like chocolate chip cookie dough because of the use of cream cheese but it's close and it's pretty darn good! Preparing the dip takes about 15 minutes from start to finish, so this is great as a last minute take along to a party or meeting.
Note: Definitely use mini chocolate chips in it, the larger ones are just too big for a dip.
Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
1 stick butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup powdered sugar (up to a 1/2 cup if mixture is too thin)
3/4 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips
In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar and salt over medium heat. Stir continuously, until the brown sugar dissolves. Remove from heat, whisk in the vanilla and set aside to cool.
Beat the cream cheese with the powdered sugar for 1 minute.
Slowly beat in the cooled butter mixture and continue beating for 1 minute. Stir in the chocolate chips by hand. Spoon or pour into a serving bowl and cover with plastic. Keep refrigerated until 10 minutes before serving. Serve with Graham cracker sticks or N'illa Wafers.
