This luscious dip is a cross between brownie batter and chocolate cheesecake. In other words, irresistible.
- 3 tbsp brick-style cream cheese (45 mL )(11⁄2 oz/45 g), cut into small pieces
- 1 tbsp butter, cut into small pieces (15 mL)
- 1⁄4 cup confectioners’ (icing) sugar (60 mL)
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder (30 mL)
- 2 tsp milk (10 mL)
- 1⁄4 tsp vanilla extract (1 mL)
- 2 tsp miniature semisweet (10 mL)
- chocolate chips (optional)
Pretzels; fresh fruit (apple slices, strawberries, banana slices); graham crackers or animal crackers
To make this recipe you’ll need a 12- to 16-oz (375 to 500 mL) mug.
In the mug, microwave cream cheese and butter on High for 10 seconds or until softened. Stir until blended.
Stir in confectioners’ sugar, cocoa powder, milk and vanilla until blended and smooth. Sprinkle with chocolate chips, if desired. Serve with any of the suggested accompaniments, as desired.
Mocha Brownie Batter Dip: Add 1 tsp (5 mL) instant coffee granules with the cocoa powder.
Coconut Brownie Batter Dip: Use an equal amount of virgin coconut oil in place of the butter. If desired, sprinkle the finished dip with 1 tbsp (15 mL) sweetened or unsweetened flaked coconut.
The cream cheese you choose can be light or regular.
You can use 3 tbsp (45 mL) soft tub-style cream cheese in place of the brick-style cream cheese.
