brownie batter dip

I made this quick dip to bring to my niece's birthday party a little while back. Not as chocolaty as a straight up chocolate dip, and not as cloying as frosting, it really did taste like brownie batter and made for a different little dessert.

I served it with store bought marshmallows (gasp!), pretzels, apple slices and princess sugar cookies.

Brownie Batter Dip
recipe source: Stick a fork in it

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
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-4 tablespoons milk

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.
