Brownie Batter Dip

Matt and I have seemed to become the go-to dessert people for our monthly small group get-togethers. (I'm not complaining...dessert is one of my favorite things to make!! ;) Last week, I made Brownie Batter Dip....yes, you read that correctly. And, yes, it was as delicious as it sounds. Plus, it was super easy!! You could use all different types of food for dipping (we used jumbo marshmallows, pretzels and strawberries) and really mix it up.

8 ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour
5 tablespoons cocoa powder, regular or Dutch-process
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-4 tablespoons milk
Chocolate chips for garnish (optional)

Pretzels, strawberries, marshmallows, graham crackers, animal crackers, or apples for dipping
Using an electric mixer, whip the cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes. Add the powdered sugar and mix well.  Add the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla and 2 tablespoons milk. Mix until smooth. Add additional powdered sugar or milk if needed, until the desired consistency is reached. You want the dip to be soft enough to easily dip a pretzel without breaking it, but stiff enough to hold its shape and not be runny. Garnish with chocolate chips, if desired.
I mixed chocolate chips in rather than use as garnish.
