Monday Munchies - Chocolate Chip Fruit Dip

It's been a busy weekend with all sorts of fun stuff going on, hockey games, meeting new friends, checking out the square, cowboy boot shopping, visiting churches, buying ski passes for tomorrow, finding the toboggan in the shed, doing daily snow depth checks, and then what do you know, it's time for Monday Munchies again!  Since Laurel and I were snowed in a couple of days last week we cooked (and ate) a lot, but I'm still getting used to this blogging thing and didn't take pictures of anything - blog fail.  Today's recipe is one that my cousin made several months ago, and my mom and I have made it several times since.  It's great served with fruit, or to make it more dessert like, we have also tried it with graham cracker sticks, chocolate graham cracker pieces, and vanilla wafers.  This would be a good recipe to keep in mind for your Super Bowl parties - go Giants!

Chocolate Chip Fruit Dip
1 package (8 ounces) Cream Cheese (softened or cubed)
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar  
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
Serve with fruit or graham cracker sticks (or whatever else you want!) 

In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy. Add the sugars and vanilla; beat until smooth. Stir in chocolate chips. Serve with fruit or graham cracker sticks.  Yield: 2 cups
