Cheesecake Dip

I think it's going to storm again. That coupled with the fact that it is Super Bowl Sunday, and I am a cooking maniac today. I couldn't decide what to make. I had several different recipes I wanted to try and so instead of spending wasted hours narrowing my selections down, I just made them all.

This dip comes from Mommy's Kitchen and it is a sweet dip in contrast to the savory dips we usually have. It is insanely delicious. The Girl ate it by the spoonful, completely ignoring the fact that a dip traditionally is, you know, dipped onto something. A cheesecake dip. Can't really go wrong there, can you?

Add a stick of butter to a block of cream cheese. Both should be at room temperature.
Add 2 tablespoons of brown sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla.
Add in 3/4 cup powdered sugar. The second time I made this I accidentally added granulated, but in the end, it didn't make any difference. Your powdered sugar will mix in a little better. Warning!! DO NOT sample the mixture here! You will never get to the next step!
Mix in 3/4 mini chocolate chips.
Stir well. Tina says to refrigerate and then form into a ball. We didn't get that far.
Serve with graham crackers, Teddy Grahams, Scooby Snacks, vanilla wafers, what ever you have on hand.
Can you say "inhaled"??? Like I said, The Girl ate this with a spoon.
