Suffering from Christmas Coma?

It's December 26, 2010, so you're probably suffering from Christmas Coma.  Sticky, half-eaten candy canes little the kitchen table as wrapping paper shreds and bits of bows cover the floor.  Pesky pine needles remain unswept as youngsters play with their new toys from Santa.  The fridge is filled with scrumptious leftovers and countertops are covered with cookies.  Probably the last thing you're searching for is another holiday recipe, but I couldn't resist!  Today is our annual family party, and my favorite dessert has made its way onto the menu...Chocolate Chip Dip.

-8 oz. cream cheese
-1/2 cup real butter (as opposed to that I Can't Believe It's Not Butter crap)
-1/2 tsp vanilla extract
-3/4 cups of sugar
2 tbsp of packaged brown sugar
3/4 cups mini semi-sweet chocolate chips

Combine the cream cheese, butter, and vanilla.  Mix well; it should be very very creamy.  Gradually add in the two types of sugar.  Again, mix until it's very very creamy.  Stir in the delicious chocolate chips.  Try to refrain from eating too many.  I know they're very tasty, but the dip will definitely give you your fair share of chocolate fix.  Refrigerate until you're ready to serve them with Honey Maid Chocolate Sticks-they're like graham crackers but chocolate.

Yum! Hope you enjoy this quick holiday treat.  Of course, this recipe shouldn't just be reserved for Christmas.  It's good enough to be eaten the whole year through.
