Dip, Baby, Dip

I remember when I was a kid and cookie dough ice cream came out. It was like the most amazing thing in the world and kinda still is. Well until now.

This Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip that I discovered via How Sweet It Is is seriously rad. It's like eating the cookie dough without worried about uncooked eggs.

I tested this awesomeness out last Wednesday and was like - ehhh it's okay. Then, I let it sit in the fridge for the night and...angels were singing when I took the lid off this bad boy on Thursday.

I've pasted the recipe below directly from How Sweet It Is. You will see above, I dipped in graham cracker pretzels (crazy, right?), but I also bought some animal cookies to dip in a future batch.

Cookie Dough Dip
makes about 1 1/2 cups
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cups chocolate chips
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and whisk until sugar dissolves and mixture starts to bubble. Set aside to cool, and whisk in vanilla.
Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar for 60 seconds. With mixer on low speed, add in brown sugar and butter mixture. Mix until combined. I added the chocolate chips at this time so the mixer could break them up into pieces. You can so that, or just fold in the chocolate chips.
Garnish with additional chopped chocolate. Serves with fruit, cookies, crackers, pretzels or a spoon.
