Chocolate Chip Mascarpone dip is a velvety and sweet dip made with mascarpone cheese, cream cheese, powdered sugar, a hint of vanilla and miniature chocolate chips.
I’m totally a dip girl. Chips and dip are a weakness of mine for sure. But dips aren’t limited to the savory. Sweet dips are fabulous too and a nice change of pace.
Chocolate Chip Mascarpone Dip is slightly sweet, infused with vanilla, and studded with miniature chocolate chips. Everything is better finished with chocolate, right?
Mascarpone cheese is the base for this dip. I love the more delicate flavor of mascarpone compared to cream cheese. I did add a little bit of cream cheese to provide some structure, but Mascarpone is really the star here. Powdered sugar provides sweetness, but just the right amount. This dip is not excessively sweet. A touch of vanilla extract and mini chocolate chips finish this dip to perfection.
How to Prepare
This dip is so easy to prepare and it can be served immediately. You can also make it ahead of time and refrigerate, but it’s not necessary. Simply blend the mascarpone cheese and cream cheese in a food processor until combined. Blend in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips and serve.
How to Serve
Serving is fun, too. I like serving this dip with vanilla wafer cookies, graham crackers – both honey and chocolate, and fresh strawberries. The variety of dippers makes for a pretty presentation. Add this dip to a dessert spread, a brunch table, or a snack buffet. Add this Mascarpone dip to your Easter menu. It’s sure to be a hit.
