Brownie Batter Dip

By Debi Manfre

A luscious dip that tastes just like brownie batter!

brownie dip in a bowl  with crackers


8 oz cream cheese, light or regular, softened to room temperature

1/4 cup softened butter

2 cups powdered sugar

5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

5 tablespoons cocoa powder

2 tablespoons packed brown sugar

2-4 tablespoons of milk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Pretzels, strawberries, graham crackers, animal crackers, etc. for dipping


In a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer or in the bowl of an electric stand mixer, whip together the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.

Add 2 cups of the powdered sugar. Mix well.

Add the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of milk. Mix until fluffy and smooth. Add additional powdered sugar and/or milk, if needed, until desired consistency is reached. The dip should be soft enough to easily dip a pretzel in without breaking it, but not so soft that it spreads out instead of holding its shape. The texture should be like a slightly stiff whip cream.

Put the dip in a decorative bowl. Put the bowl on a platter and place dipping items around the bowl.
