Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip

When I came across this recipe on Bella's Bistro, I knew it was the perfect dessert to bring to "Girl's Night In" at Allison's house this weekend. It reminded me of hanging out with girlfriends as a teenager, eating cookie dough straight from the container. This grown up version was delicious and really easy to make!

For an appetizer, I brought the Ham and Cheese Pretzel Bites that I prepared on Friday and they were definitely worth the work because they were a HUGE hit!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip
from RecipeZaar inspired by Bella's Bistro


1/2C. Butter
1/3C. Brown sugar
1t. Vanilla extract
1 (8 ounce package) Cream cheese, softened
1/2C. Confectioners’ sugar
3/4C. Semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
1/2C. Chopped nuts (optional)
Nilla wafers and/or Graham crackers sticks for dipping


In a small saucepan, melt the butter with the brown sugar over medium heat. Stir continuously, until the brown sugar dissolves.

Remove from heat, whisk in the vanilla and set aside to cool.

Beat the cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar for 1 minute. Slowly beat in the cooled butter mixture and beat again for another minute.

Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts, if using. Pour into a serving bowl and refrigerate.

Garnish with additional chocolate chips or nuts, if you choose.
