Chocolate Chip, Heath Cookie Dough Dip

Last Thursday I made an appearance on a local news station to talk about my little blog and to share a few different recipes.  The three goodies I made were Samoa Monkey Bread, Snickers Stuffed Skillet Cookie and this dip.  While all three items were a hit, I think this dip was the most popular treat, hands down.  Before we could even present the segment on air, some of the staff couldn't resist, they just had to dive in and see what this was all about.  Then they couldn't stop after one bite, they just kept coming back for seconds, thirds, fourths and so on.  Ever since my interview aired I've been receiving emails and phone calls requesting the recipe for this dip.  Well, the wait is over!
This dip is nothing short of amazing.  First and foremost, it gives you the satisfaction of that raw cookie dough that so many of us enjoy but without the raw eggs.  And it takes less time to throw together too, not that cookie dough takes much time to make anyway.  Now that's a win win if you ask me! 



If you haven't noticed by now, sweets are definitely a weakness of mine.  If it's got chocolate, sugar, butterscotch, frosting...you name it then I'm going to eat it.  While I love being in the kitchen baking my heart out, there are times where I find myself in a bind.  There are times where I need something sweet for a get together or party, but I don't need it to be the typical cupcakes, cake, or cookies.  Then there are those times that I need something to take to a friend's house, but it's last minute and I don't have time to wait for something to bake.  So what's a girl to do in a situation like this?  Dilemmas I tell ya!     


Well, now when you find yourself in such a predicament you can whip up some of this dip.  This dip is extremely easy, pretty much effortless to make and takes no time to put together.  It's a matter of mixing the cream cheese and a few other ingredients, then folding in the fresh whipped cream.  Allow the mixture to chill for a bit and then you're set.  So simple, right?
 This dip is amazing, and amazingly addictive.  You'll find yourself making this all the time, because it is so good and because it's so stinkin' easy to make.  This dip is slightly rich, because of the cream cheese but it's quickly balance by the light, airiness the whipped cream brings to the dish.  You've got it all with this dip; rich, light, sweet, and chocolate.  I love to use pretzels to dip in this dip to add a little saltiness to the plate.  I've also served this with vanilla wafers and graham crackers and they are as equally delicious.  You'll be happy with whatever you scoop this dip with, just be sure you make the did!  I need some fellow addicts!
