Simple sweets

I’ve always been more of a cook than a baker.  Recently, I’ve made it a point to challenge myself in the baking department…stepping out of my comfort zone and taking on recipes I normally wouldn’t have tried before.

Still, once in a while, I revert back to my more simpler ways.  And sometimes, the simplest sweets are the ones that people dive into and wipe out in minutes.

This is one of those sweets.

This really should come with a warning label on it.

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip
slightly adapted from Shugary Sweets

8 oz cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup butter, softened
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Beat cream cheese and butter until fluffy, about 3-4 minutes. Add vanilla and powdered sugar and beat an additional few minutes. Fold in chocolate chips. 

Serve with graham crackers, animal crackers, pretzels…even strawberries.

    This dip sounds totally spoonable. Meaning I don’t need any graham crackers…just a spoon.

  4. I gotta agree with Joanne! Spoon, please!

    I, too, am more of a cook than a baker, and have a tendency to make “safe” sweets, things I know I can’t underbake, overbake, or just plain ruin! This will be one of them!

  6. I’ve had something similar and you are completely right – it should come with a warning label. Just addictive.
