Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip -- a cooking post

I seriously almost peed my pants when I stumbled across this little gem. (Using stumble! for Firefox no less!)

It's from How Sweet It Is. A fun little blog.

Anyway, it's a pretty easy recipe. Very minimal work honestly.

There's only three things I would change:

1- Honestly, I would add less cream cheese. Not that it's bad with the whole amount, but it was VERY cream cheesey. But again, not in a bad way.
2- I would get a whole slew of things to put it on/dip in it...fruit (apples would be a great choice), Nilla Waffers, things like that.
3- I would wear bigger pants.

Cookie Dough Dip
makes about 1 1/2 cups
1/2 cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cups chocolate chips
Melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Add brown sugar and whisk until sugar dissolves and mixture starts to bubble. Set aside to cool, and whisk in vanilla.
Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar for 60 seconds. With mixer on low speed, add in brown sugar and butter mixture. Mix until combined.
Garnish with additional chopped chocolate. Serves with fruit, cookies, crackers, pretzels or a spoon.

      I feel like I'm going to explode after eating that bowl with Brad. 

yea, my eyes are closed. its better than the blurred version
 If anyone makes it with less cream cheese than the recipe calls for, let me know. I'd like to know if it makes a difference. Just be aware...it's yummy and absolutely horrible for you.
