I brought this wonderful, creamy dip to a picnic and it was a hit. This is good served with fruit, Nilla Wafer cookies, graham crackers or pretzels.
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
shaved chocolate, optional for garnish
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and whisk until sugar dissolves and mixture starts to bubble. Set aside to cool, and whisk in vanilla extract.
Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar for 1 minute, or until well combined and smooth. Add a pinch of salt. With mixer on low speed, slowly pour in brown sugar and butter mixture and mix until combined.
Fold in mini chocolate chips with a spatula.
Transfer dip to a bowl or ramekin. Sprinkle with additional chocolate chips or shaved chocolate.
