We are now officially IN #Chocotoberfest week, being that it’s Day-4…I can’t even. So many great recipes linked up all week, and so much creativity! Amazing. Well, not to be outdone, I have a Two-Fer for you! ~A two-for-one if you didn’t get that~ Both a yummy recipe for Chocolate Cheesecake Dip and also…
I thought I’d share with you all something amazing. Yep. Not so much my recipe- well, that IS good. But I have a trick that I know you will love. If you have kids, or picky eaters…
This is my super fun trick:
And you may feel free to pass this on! I used apples that I peeled…the trick from my friend, Julie, is to peel the apples and then submerge in pineapple juice. Coat them all over with the juice then add them to the platter: Absolutely no browning. This is my newest trick and I told her I’d steal it- and I did! It also adds a sweetness that I like without changing the taste of the apple. Now I make peeled apples in pineapple juice all the time for my kids lunches- WIN.
So after all that healthy apple eating, of course we have to dip them in chocolate. It just goes without saying for my chocolate addiction! Actually, I had to bring something to a friend’s house recently, and I only had apples and graham crackers…and the ingredients to make this easy and yummy dip. So I know you can make this with minimal ingredients and effort, and look like you are a mini-Martha ready for a Pinterest close-up. Well…let’s see.

Chocolate Cheesecake Dip
1 package lower-fat cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup powdered sugar (I used Imperial Sugar)
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 TBSP. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
2 TBSP. cup mini chocolate chips
Here’s what you do:
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream the cream cheese and sugars. Add cocoa powder, milk, and vanilla until smooth.
- Using a rubber spatula, scrape into a bowl. Sprinkle with chips. refrigerate until ready to serve.
- Serve with fruit like bananas, apples, strawberries and graham crackers or vanilla wafer cookies.
This is a party-pleaser. For picky kids and parents too, this can be an easy dish to make and bring somewhere or just to enjoy on a Saturday night! My pictures are kind of casual, since I did indeed “bring this” to a friend’s house. It is in a plastic container and paper plate- nothing I’d miss if it was left at her house.
Now for the many other awesome #Choctoberfest recipes for this Day 4!
