Black Forest Brownie Dip

Black Forest Brownie Dip

This brownie dip is highly shareable and the recipe makes a good amount so nobody will get short changed. We all really like eating raw cookie dough and brownie batter anyway, right? This recipe has no eggs so no reason to even consider a baked dessert. Just luscious creamy chocolate, flavored with my favorite vanilla paste from Nielsen-Massey, and swirls of sweet cherry that are perfect for dipping...or eating with a spoon!

Ingredients

Brownie Dip

  • 8 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste
  • 2 tablespoons milk or cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Cherry Swirl

  • 4 oz. Cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cherry preserves
  • 1 teaspoon Nielsen-Massey Madagascar Bourbon Pure Vanilla Bean Paste
  • Pinch of salt

Directions

To make the brownie dip, add the cream cheese, butter, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla paste, milk and salt to a bowl. Using a stand or hand mixer, beat until smooth and creamy.

To make the cherry swirl, add the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla paste and salt to a bowl and beat until smooth. Swirl in the cherry preserves but you don\’t have to fully combine it.

Add the prepared cherry swirl to the brownie dip and gently swirl, using a butter knife. Serve with pretzels, graham crackers, marshmallows and fruit.
