Say it with me know. Brownie. Batter. Dip. As in, a perfectly acceptable reason to eat brownie batter, without worrying about eating raw eggs. It’s sweet, but not too sweet, silky and chocolate-y, and seriously tastes just like brownie batter. It’s uh-mazing. Serve it with strawberries, pretzels, vanilla wafers, marshmallows, animal crackers and/or apples. Or, just grab a spoon. I won’t judge. 🙂
Brownie Batter Dip
Serves: 8-10 servings
8 ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
5 tablespoons cocoa powder, regular or Dutch-process
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-4 tablespoons milk
Chocolate chips for garnish (optional)
Pretzels, strawberries, marshmallows, graham crackers, animal crackers, or apples for dipping
Using an electric mixer, whip the cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and mix well. Add the cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla and 2 tablespoons milk. Mix until smooth.
Add additional powdered sugar or milk if needed, until the desired consistency is reached. You want the dip to be soft enough to easily dip a pretzel without breaking it, but stiff enough to hold its shape and not be runny.
Garnish with chocolate chips, if desired.
