Talk about easy! This creamy peanut butter chocolate chip cheesecake dip recipe takes just minutes to make! If you love salty-sweet combinations AND you love cheesecake then look no further, my friend, this is the snack you'll want at your next family gathering. Welcome to day two of #Choctoberfest!
For this easy snack recipe you'll need: cream cheese, butter, crunchy peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla, chocolate chips
I am all about the homemade onion dip and I'll definitely cross the room for a good chicken enchilada dip but if you really want to grab my attention then a sweet and salty combination is a good choice. I can honestly say I dipped my potato chips in hot fudge well before it was a "foodie" thing to do.
The best thing about this peanut butter chocolate chip cheesecake dip, other than the flavor, is that it is just so dang easy. I have been known to call it PMS Dip because it literally takes about two minutes to make and I almost ALWAYS have all the ingredients on hand.
Let me tell you - a batch of this, some crunchy pretzels with extra salt, and a good Rom-Com will take the sting out of any day. Don't even pretend you don't know what I mean.
I like to use crunchy peanut butter in this recipe because it gives it more texture and peanutty goodness but you can use smooth if you prefer. Some people like mini-chocolate chips in theirs but just to be totally honest I like big chunks of milk chocolate chips. You can use whatever you like the best from bittersweet chocolate chunks to mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. I've even used white chocolate chips in this cheesecake dip with great results.
In the words of Ms. Frizzle, Take chances! Make mistakes! Get messy!
Except I don't think there IS a way to make mistakes with this. It's just that good.

Did your parents set out chip and dip sets?
Mine did. I loved helping my mom choose which one to use for the Mad Men style parties they used to throw. I mean, it was the 1960s - poker, cocktails, and chip and dip sets were weekend essentials!
I am absolutely in love with this Dr. Who Tardis chip and dip set! I think it would be a great conversation starter! Do you know anyone Whovians that would love this?
