A couple of weeks ago I joined The Secret Recipe Club. It's a group of bloggers/recipe lovers who sign up and get assigned a blog. Then we make something from that blog and write about it. Fun right? My first post is scheduled for this Monday (the 22nd) but then yesterday I received an email from Amanda (the host of this totally fun "club") that a blogger backed out at the last possible minute. She was looking for a volunteer to make something and post it by the following day. That's today! I was a little torn between thinking "there's no way I can make something by tomorrow" and "that would be horrible if it were me".
So, still undecided I clicked on the blog link to see what Connor's Cooking was all about. It took about 5 seconds to make up my mind and email Amanda back and say "I'm in". I mean heck, she had some delicious recipes!
I was torn between the Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip and the Oreo Turtle Bars. Decisions, decisions, decisions... I decided to make the Oreo bars later (because I am totally making those!) and make the dip. I thought my family would have no problem gobbling this up!
It was super easy to make (which I love) and so delicious!
* 1 stick butter
* 1/3 cup brown sugar
* 1 tsp. vanilla
* 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
* 1/2 cup powdered sugar
* 3/4 cup chocolate chips
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and stir until it dissolves and mixture starts to bubble. Remove from heat and add vanilla.
In another bowl, mix cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth.
Pour into brown sugar mixture and mix until well combined. Add chocolate chips and stir.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
We ate it with Animal Cookies and Nilla Wafers. Oh my. It was delicious!!! I mean seriously... DELICIOUS!!!
Don't forget to come back on Monday to see my first official Secret Recipe =o)
Here are the links to the other recipes made. Amazing, right?
