So, last night’s Super Bowl was … less than gripping? Let’s face it: it was a blowout. Which is great if you’re a Seahawks fan, and really awful if you were rooting for the Broncos. For the rest of us who had no real emotional stake in the game, it wasn’t terribly exciting. Even though the game wasn’t riveting, the food was pretty darn good. Here’s one of the dips that I served last night to some friends.
I found this recipe on the blog Something Swanky.
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 1 stick butter, softened
- 5 tbs all purpose flour
- 5 tbs cocoa powder
- 3 tbs brown sugar
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2-3 tbs milk, divided
- 2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips, plus more for topping
In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the cream cheese and butter together until smooth.
Add the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, salt, vanilla, and 1 tbs milk. Beat again until it’s relatively smooth.
Add the powdered sugar and beat again, starting out on low so that the sugar doesn’t fly out of the bowl and get everywhere. Add another tbs of milk. If you feel like the dip is still too thick, you can add the last tbs of milk.
Add the mini chocolate chips. Serve in a bowl, topped with a few more chocolate chips.
You can eat this with whatever you want: graham crackers, apples, etc. I followed Something Swanky’s lead and used pretzel chips, which were awesome with this.
