We had some friends over last night to watch the Superbowl. This was one of the many sweet treats we had at our party (but the only one I can take credit for). It was ridiculously good! Everyone just loved it…don’t tell them, but I even used fat-free cream cheese! There was almost nothing left at the end of the night.
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.
