I have this thing for brownie batter….dare I say it’s almost as good as baked brownies? I always try to resist taking a taste because of those pesky raw eggs. This brownie batter dip is an eggless delight that’s ready in minutes. Add a dose of holiday sprinkles and you’ve got a fun dessert that’s perfect for any Christmas party! This is always the first thing to go when I bring it to gatherings, there’s just something so fun and unique about a dessert dip, especially when it’s full of chocolate.
This brownie batter dip is made with a simple mixture of ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. The base is made of whipped cream cheese, with a little flour, butter, cocoa powder and brown sugar to recreate the flavor of brownie batter. I add a generous amount of mini chocolate chips to really amp up the flavor.
This dip is can be made up to 2 days in advance, but is best served at room temperature. I like to serve this dip with strawberries, apple slices, graham crackers and gingerbread cookies, but you can really get creative with the dippers. Other great options would be pretzels (regular or chocolate covered), vanilla wafers, pears, or even marshmallows.
You’ll need a mixer for this simple recipe to whip the ingredients into a light and creamy treat. You can either use a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a hand mixer. In addition, you can use as much or as little milk as you want, depending on the consistency you prefer for the final product. I prefer a thicker dip, almost like a spread, but it’s sure to be a hit no matter how you serve it!
