Chocolate Chip Coffee Dessert Dip can be made with reduced sugar.
- 1 cup reduced fat cream cheese (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar or finely pulsed Stevia Blend in a food processor to make this reduced sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tablespoon brewed coffee (room temperature)
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Graham Crackers, pretzels, lady fingers or other cookies for dipping
Very little of my excess cookies ever goes to waste – whether I baked them or bought them. Recently I made a batch of rolled out sugar cookies that just didn’t turn out well. They spread so much during the baking process their shapes were unrecognizable and unusable for the cookie basket I was making. Throwing them out wasn’t an option. So I made cookie butter with them.
You can use almost any cookie to make this.
Place 8 ounces of cookies in a food processor until finely ground.
Slowly add in approximately 1/2 cup oil and then 1/4 cup water. The amount of oil added will depend on the type of cookie used so start off with less oil and add more as needed. Cookies that have a heavy oil base such as sugar cookies will probably take less oil. Then add up to 1/2 cup powdered sugar until the paste reaches desired consistency.
Cookie butter has many uses. It can be used to fill cakes, cookie sandwiches, stuff cupcakes, mixed with ice cream, used in smoothies, or just eat out of the jar.
