Brownie Batter Dip


It's pot luck time again, and if you're anything like me, you're looking for something "different" to take.  I always take desserts, because I find them easier to transport, and while I love a good cupcake, I always want to try something different, and I love anything I can dip a graham cracker in, or any excuse to eat Vanilla Wafers like I'm 3 years old!

Granted, this Brownie Batter Dip is old news on Pinterest, I'd never actually seen anyone I know in real life try this, giving it great Pot Luck potential!  I could not get over how much this tasted like brownie batter, in my opinion the best part of most brownies.  And bonus, no raw eggs, making me less weary of giving my kids a spoonful to keep quiet for a few minutes!

Brownie Batter Dip
Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 4 Tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 5 Tablespoons flour
  • 5 Tablespoons cocoa powder (regular or Dutch-process.  I usually use Dutch)
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2-4 Tablespoons milk
  • Pretzels, strawberries, marshmallows, graham crackers, vanilla wafers or whatever you want for dipping!

Directions:
Using a mixer, whip the cream cheese and butter together, about 1-2 minutes until light and fluffy.  Add the powdered sugar and mix well.  Add the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla and 2 Tablespoons of milk.  Mix until smooth.

Add extra powdered sugar or milk as needed, until you get a the right consistency - soft enough to act as a dip, but not runny.

White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling

OK, so, while this recipe was the result of me literally quick thinking at the grocery store rushing around to pick up a few ingredients over Easter weekend, I came up with a fantastic cake filling, in my humble opinion.  I love the cake fillings at Costco and wanted to make a variation on that.  This is really semi-homemade but oh so good!  It's rich, creamy and decadent.  Even my husband loved it, and he's not really a cake fan.  It was so easy to make too! White Chocolate Cheesecake Mousse Filling Ingredients: 1 package Jello Pudding - Cheesecake flavor 1 8-oz. container Whipped Cream Cheese, softened 1 8-oz, container Cool Whip, thawed 3 oz.

Key Lime Gooey Butter Cake

I'm from St. Louis.  The home of Gooey Butter Cake.  Many people think it's a Paula Deen creation, and how could you not when you see how much butter is in it, but you can't go in to a restaurant, bakery or grocery store without seeing gooey butter somewhere in St. Louis.  We love it.  What's not to love with butter, cream cheese, powdered sugar, oh my! But, considering I've made it numerous times, I'm always up for a new variation.  Nutella?   Check !  Cookies?  Don't mind if I do !  Pumpkin?  Well of course !  While talking to my mom about what to bring to a family function, she mentioned she saw a recipe for key lime gooey butter cake.  Sold!  I've never heard of the website she sent over to me, but it looked similar to the basics of every other recipe I've used for Gooey Butter Cake so I knew I wanted to give it a try! One thing people may not realize is that Gooey Butter Cake is very easy to make.  Just a few ingredients really!  Just mix
