Introduction: Mocha Chip Cream Cheese

Snacks Contest 2017

Third Prize in the
Snacks Contest 2017

One of my favorite cream cheeses comes from a little Jewish bagel shop in Newton. Even though I don't live that far from the shop, it's hard to get to and so I rarely get their cream cheese or bagels. I decided to try and create my own version of their Mocha Chip Cream Cheese. I think it's a pretty good substitute and is fantastic on chocolate chip bagels (Panera's are really good).

Step 1: BoM

1 brick of softened cream cheese

1-2 tbs cocoa powder*

1-2 tsp espresso powder*

3-4 tbs creme de cacao*

1/2 bag mini chocolate chips*

You should taste test your cream cheese as you go, increase the amount of an ingredient to match your flavor preferences.

*= to taste. To taste means based on your preferences, what works for me might not work for you.

Step 2: Add Ingredients

Add all of your ingredients, except the chocolate chips, to a mixing bowl. I like to use a hand blender to make sure everything is mixed well, but this can be a pain if the cheese isn't soft enough. Increase ingredients as you go to get the flavor profile you like best.

Step 3: Mix

Mix in chocolate chips.

Step 4: Eat!

Spread your cream cheese on your favorite bagel or other food items. Keep refrigerated and the cream should stay good for a week or two.
