Recipe by Manami
This is a "throw-together" type recipe, anything and everything goes. You make it with frozen cookie dough or brownie box mix, with frozen or fresh fruit, chopped nuts or not, with chocloate sauce, and if desired, a dollop of whipped topping, here and there. This is no way diet friendly but neither is Super Bowl Sunday! I didn't post chilling times because they may vary with each situation but the minimum is 2 hours.
- 1 (18 ounce) hershey refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough (that is what I used)
- 8 ounces strawberry cream cheese
- 1⁄3 cup confectioners' sugar
- fresh fruit (berries, bananas, kiwi, etc) or sliced frozen fruit (berries, bananas, kiwi, etc)
- chopped nuts (almonds, walnuts or macadamias)
- chocolate syrup or special dark chocolate syrup or dulce de leche
- non-dairy whipped topping
