Chocolate Chip Dip

I got this recipe from my sister's friend, Kirsten Moxey. It is very yummy and a sure crowd pleaser for any party or get-together.

8 oz. cream cheese, softened (if you use light or fat-free, it turns out very runny)
1 stick real butter, softened
3/4 C powdered sugar
1/4 tsp. vanilla
2 T brown sugar
3/4 C milk chocolate chips
3/4 C chopped pecans (optional)
Graham Cracker Sticks, Cinnamon Wheat Thins

Beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until fluffy. Add sugars and beat. Stir in chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate 2 hours.

Place mixture on large piece of plastic wrap and shape into a ball. Refrigerate 1 hour. Before serving, roll ball in chopped pecans. Serve with Graham sticks or Cinnamon Wheat Thins!

***The options for this recipe are endless! You could use mini-chocolate chips in place of regular, you could chop up a candy bar like Heath or Scor. For Christmas, you could chop up a candy cane or peppermint patties. Be creative and use holiday-appropriate M&M's colors!***

I love this dip! For those milk drinkers, this dip with graham cracker sticks and a tall glass of cold milk is THE BEST!!!

Did anyone see me finishing this off on Saturday? Yep, that was me scraping the plate with the last 2 graham crackers. I would have picked up the plate and licked it if I thought I could have gotten away with it.
