Chocolate Cake Batter Dip


Sometimes…. there are chocolate cravings. And days when nothing else will do.

You know the kind of day I’m talking about. A day when the dog got into the garbage and made a big mess, and there wasn’t enough hot water in my shower, and I can’t find a thing in my fridge to eat for lunch.


Days like these make chocolate something of a necessity.

Do you ever just go rooting through the pantry for ingredients for something sweet? Please say it’s not just me! Today I found a cake mix and some cream cheese, and knew I had the beginnings of something great.

The great thing about a dip like this is that it works just as well for an after school snack is it does for a game night with friends. Though, I will admit that although I serve it to the kids with apple slices, I myself prefer it on graham crackers. It reminds me of the “graham cracker cookies” my mom used to make. When she had more frosting than she needed, she would frost a few graham crackers and refrigerate them. It really was one of my favorite treats.

I love recreating those good childhood memories with my own kids. I just have to do it in my own way. You know, put my own twist on it! Like using chocolate dip instead of frosting.

Now that I’ve satisfied my chocolate cravings, I guess it’s time to prepare some meals, and take that hot shower, and figure out how to train the dog to stay out of the trash.





4 oz. cream cheese, softened
4 T. butter, softened
3/4 cup dry chocolate cake mix
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 T. milk


Combine all ingredients in a bowl, whip until smooth and creamy.
If preparing ahead, store in refrigerator. Best served at room temperature.
