When I saw this recipe on Lemons & Love, I couldn't wait for an excuse to make it. Tonight, our friend said she was going to come by to watch the Super Bowl with us. I figured we would need something to snack on, and since she has a bit of a sweet tooth just like me, I thought that this would be the perfect thing to make.
1/2 cup Butter
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 (8 ounce) package Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup Confectioners' Sugar
3/4 cup Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips (I used regular sized milk chocolate chips)
1/2 cup Nuts, chopped (optional)
In a small saucepan, melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat. Stir continuously until the brown sugar dissolves. Beat the cream cheese and confectioners' sugar for 1 minutes. Slowly pour in the cooled butter mixture and beat for another minute. Stir in the chocolate chips and nuts. Pour into a serving bowl and refrigerate. Garnish with additional chocolate chips or nuts. Serve with graham crackers.
