Once the ingredients are blended together, enjoy with Boardwalk Food Company’s Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels and fresh fruit. This Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Cheese Dip makes a delightful sweet treat to serve at a potluck, party or tailgate.
When I was a kid, I remember when the first pretzel place opened at our mall. We’d tried those magical mall pretzels during family visits to Pennsylvania, but none of the malls in Memphis had them until one fateful day.
You know the pretzel place, right?
The one that you can smell wafting from the food court and into the walkways as you’re making your way from store to store?
Yeah, you know the one.
When I was a kid, their cinnamon sugar pretzels were my favorite.
The thing was… I didn’t know what I wanted to make to pair with them, so I got to brainstorming.
I decided upon this dreamy dessert… because how can you go wrong with chocolate and hazelnut and cream cheese all whipped into one dip?
So earlier this week, I made the Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels.
Unlike the poppers, they required a little more time and energy in their preparation. Instead of dolloping them into a mini muffin tin and baking with no fuss, you actually knead, then roll out the pretzels. Once they’re rolled out, you cut them into bite-sized pieces, then you boil them in the traditional pretzel water-baking soda bath. Once the quick bath is complete you place them on a baking sheet and bake them.
When I transferred my pretzels to the oven, I got started on this dip.
It’s quite simple, and the result is ridiculously delicious.
You whip together softened cream cheese and your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread until smooth, then you add in powdered sugar and vanilla extract, whipping until well-combined.
Once the pretzels are out of the oven, you brush them with a little butter, then sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Then as soon as they’re cool enough for you to handle, you take one and dip it into the Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Cheese Dip for the ultimate dessert dip.
Here’s my recipe:
Chocolate Hazelnut Cream Cheese Dip
- 4 oz . cream cheese , softened
- 1/4 cup chocolate hazelnut spread
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- Boardwalk Food Company Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel Mix , made according to the box directions
- In a large glass bowl, measure out the cream cheese and chocolate hazelnut spread.
- Using a hand mixer, whip the two ingredients together.
