Cream Cheese Dip — Kids Cook

Categories: Uncategorized



A couple weeks ago a friend of mine came over for dinner and brought this dip. All of the kids went wild for it.

Okay, so it doesn’t really even involve cooking, per se. But the kids can make it by themselves and it is a great snack for when they have friends over.


You will need:

2 blocks of cream cheese
1 cup powdered sugar
3T brown sugar
1T vanilla extract
mini chocolate chips
toffee bits


Dump the two blocks of cream cheese into a mixing bowl. Add the powdered sugar.


And the brown sugar.


Add the vanilla.

Use your hand mixer to blend well.


Sometimes you might need a second pair of hands to hold the bowl still. Bonus if you have a helpful older brother.

Mix the chips and toffee bits into the mixture by hand. I just eyeballed this since I didn’t want too much. I would estimate that it was probably one-third of the package.


Serve with graham crackers or apple slices.


Stand back while it is devoured.

  • Where was this when I had my son’s b-day party?

    This will definitely go into my file for all kids’ parties.

  • we had a mom bring this to a playgroup and it is truly terrific! It’s a great one for using up leftover candy:)

  • I had this at a baby shower once - it is fantastic! It tastes like chocolate chip cookie dough. The one I had didn’t have the toffee bits, but that seems like a great addition! They also shaped it into a “cheese ball” shape and rolled it in more chocolate chips - yum!

  • We make a variety of flavors using this basic recipe. For Valentine’s Day my hubby actually made a cherry chocolate chip one using maraschino cherries. It was great! We’ve done Rocky Road, Mint Chocolate Chip and even one for the grown ups with Kahlua. It is fun to vary the dippers too….marshmallows, ginger snaps, apple slices, and sugar cookies are some of our favs!

  • The easiest, lazy version is just brown sugar and cream cheese, but adding the toffee bits option is making me drool. And how did you manage to squeeze in this blog post with the rest of the utterly crazy schedule right now!?

  • My version is without the chocolate chips (more toffee, of course) and we use apples soaked in pineapple juice (keeps them from browning) - I call it a healthy snack.

  • Sounds delish!
    Just for those not in the USA, what is powdered sugar?

    Chris says: I believe it is also called confectioners sugar.

  • OMG, that looks fabulous, and here I thought I wouldn’t need to go to Kroger tomorrow. Looks like I’m wrong again.

  • Tried it today.
    SOOOOO good!

    It didn’t get my toddler to eat the apples but it was a valid effort.

  • This has been a favorite of our family’s for years. We use green apples as our “dippers” instead of graham crackers. . .we’ll have to give the grahams a go!

  • so very good! I started off using apples as dippers, ran out of them and ate the rest with a spoon. Yes, I admit it - a spoon.

    I believe it is also called caster sugar.
