Chocolate Chip Dip

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas.  It's always sad to say, but I'm so glad the holidays are almost behind us. I mean, it's crazy how stressed and rushed we become during this time of year, and the fact that we got cheated a week between Thanksgiving and totally screwed me up. I kept thinking I had way more time to do stuff, so of course I didn't get to do everything I wanted to get done. Oh well. There's always next year, right?

One easy thing I did do this holiday season was make this chocolate chip dip. It's super easy and quick to put together, perfect for those remaining holiday parties.

Chocolate Chip Dip
Recipe from Taste of Home

1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips

Food for dipping like graham cracker sticks, pretzels, apples, etc.

In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and butter until its light and fluffy.  Then, add the both sugars and the vanilla extract and beat until smooth.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Serve with your choice of dippers, such as graham cracker sticks, pretzels, etc.

This makes 2 cups.


  1. Gosh, this looks like something I could plant my face in right about now! Weird question...can you taste the butter? I've seen savory & sweet dips that have lots of butter and get worried that you can detect it. I love me some butter, but it skeeves me out to think about eating it straight up. I'm weird, I know.

    1. Honestly, I can't taste the butter. The cream cheese and chocolate chips are the only thing I taste really. Make it!! You'll be eating it by the spoonful. I've had to hide it from Harper :)

  2. Oh yum! This sounds fabulous! You can't go wrong with cream cheese and chocolate!

  3. A friend of ours had us over for dinner this week and for dessert she served something similar but it was made with ricotta and marscapone dippers necessary!!! I could've eaten it by the spoonful!!
