Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip

It's all in the title: chocolate. chip. cheesecake. dip.  Yum!  This dessert even got my husband's approval (the man claims he's not a big fan of chocolate or cheesecake, so his approval on this is huge)!  I found the recipe months ago on Pinterest and had it filed away on my sweets board.  Speaking of my sweets board: I now have so many pins on this board that it makes for a long search when I'm looking through it for something specific.  So I created a bunch of new "sweets" boards with subcategories, to supposedly make it easier on myself.  This sounded like a great idea and maybe it will be great when I actually get all of the pins moved to their new homes, but who's got time for that?

Enough with my Pinterest rant...back to the yummy dip!  I was looking through my boards for a new but easy recipe to take for dessert to Bible study, and came across this one.  It's easy, quick, and so delicious.

  • 1 pkg (8oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 stick butter, softened
  • 3/4 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • mini chocolate chips - the original recipe calls for 1 cup, but I rarely measure when it comes to chocolate chips, I just pour until it looks good!
  • graham crackers or graham cracker sticks, or anything else you'd like for dipping.  (we also tried nilla wafers, but thought graham crackers were the best)
  • Beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy
  • Add powdered sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla.  Beat until mixed well.
  • Stir in chocolate chips
  • Refrigerate until ready to serve!
