• 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened to room temperature • 1/4 cup butter, softened to room temperature • 2 cups powdered sugar, plus more for a stiffer consistency • 5 tablespoons all-purpose flour • 5 tablespoons cocoa powder, regular or Dutch-process • 2 tablespoons brown sugar • 1 teaspoon vanilla • 2 tablespoons milk, plus more as needed • chocolate chips, optional, for garnish • pretzels, optional, for serving • strawberries, optional, for serving • graham crackers, optional, for serving • animal crackers, optional, for serving • apples, optional, for serving


Step 1

In a large bowl with a handheld electric mixer or the bowl of a stand mixer, whip the cream cheese and butter together until light and fluffy, about 1-2 minutes.

Add the powdered sugar, mixing well.

Step 3

Add the flour, cocoa powder, brown sugar, vanilla, and milk, mixing until smooth and fluffy. Taste and adjust for consistency, adding powdered sugar or milk as needed until a pretzel can be dipped in without breaking and the dip holds a fluffy shape after dipping.
