I'm so happy to be able to link up once again with Katie and Stephanie for SPD! It's such a neat link up and I love seeing all of these great pins come to life.
I'm not much of a Pinterest person, but when it comes to food, it's one of the first places I go for ideas. Like I mentioned on Tuesday, our Houston blogger group had a meetup and it was a Pinterest themed party. I needed a Pinterest-inspired dish to bring for everyone to enjoy!
Initially inspired by a good mutual friend of my husband's, I found a pin of this amazing Brownie Batter Dip and knew that I had to share it with the bloggers!
Mine obviously did not come out as pretty as this one did, but it tasted absolutely delicious!
It seemed to be a pretty big hit with all the bloggers at the party, and the hubby loved it too! I especially loved it with the animal crackers.
8 ounces cream cheese, light or regular, softened to room temperature

In a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer or in the bowl of an electric stand mixer, whip together the cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy, 1-2 minutes. Add 2 cups of the powdered sugar. Mix well. Add the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla and 2 tablespoons milk. Mix until fluffy and smooth.
