Monday Munchies: Brownie Batter Dip

This recipe is brought to you thanks to H13.  She made it last night as part of our Super Bowl snacks.  If your family is like ours, the food and the commercials are the main reason for watching the game.  With that understanding, you can see how important it is to make the food good.  H13 certainly came through with this tasty treat.

You can find the recipe here at Our Every Day Dinners but I wanted to post it again so you don't have to go looking.  I would recommend that you check out the site though.  There's lots of good stuff there. 

Brownie Batter Dip

1 8 oz package softened cream cheese

1/2 cup softened butter
2 cups powdered sugar
heaping 1/4 cup cocoa powder
heaping 1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 tablespoons milk, adding more if needed

Mix the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer. Add the powdered sugar and milk slowly. Add the cocoa, flour, brown sugar, and vanilla, and mix well.

We served the dip with pretzels, graham crackers, and unsweetened banana chips.  The unsweetened banana chips are, frankly, nasty on their own, but they were just right with this dip.

Also, we didn't have any powdered sugar.  A few years ago that missing ingredient would have sent us searching for another recipe.  We've come a long way in the do it yourself department so H13 made her own powdered sugar.  And guess what, powdered sugar is just regular sugar... wait for it... powdered.  Who knew?!  If you need powdered sugar you put the equivalent amount of white sugar in a blender and blend/pulse until you have sugar that is... you guessed it ...powdered.  I know, it's amazing, isn't it?!  If you want a more serious set of instructions check here but the ones that I've given really do work.

Anyway, with or without the diy powdered sugar this brownie batter dip really is worth making and sharing.
