Did you ever need something sweet? so quickly that baking a batch of cookies was too slow? How about making food for a party and want to make something a little different, a little sweet to balance out all the savory? How about chocolate chip cookie dough dip?
I first learned of this dip from a go-to blog Two Peas and their Pod she has the recipe posted on the Tasty Kitchen website (bookmark this site because it is a great resource for ‘something new’), I have a couple posted there too. Maria at Two Peas originally got it from another blog How Sweet Eats. A great example of why I love food blogging. We are good sharers, and we like to try everyone else’s food, but we like to give them credit for it.
It takes maybe 5 minutes to put together, but you have to do some prep work. You need to melt the butter and the brown sugar on the stove, and let it cool. You could do it the night, day or two days before. I might just keep melted butter and brown sugar together in my fridge in case I need to make this dip say every day for the rest of my life.
I had my son helping me make this dip, he was the reason I made it in the first place. He has recently discover and loved chocolate chip cookie dough. I do believe he ate 1/4 cup by himself. I would like to apologize for the lack of ‘assembly’ pictures, but I was working with a nine year-old, but I do want to make clear he was not the reason I was wearing a band-aid in the last pictures (that was not a cooking accident – it was actually a make-up application accident, yup – a freak make-up accident). Weird, I know. Enjoy~
