Ingredients

  • 8 ounces neufchâtel cream cheese light cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • 1/4 cup butter softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon coconut extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup toasted coconut
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup toasted sliced almonds

Instructions

  • If you are toasting your own coconut and almonds, do that first, and place them in the freezer to cool while you prepare the dip.
  • Beat cream cheese and butter in a mixing bowl till smooth and creamy. Beat in powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon of the milk, coconut extract, and vanilla. Stir in the toasted coconut, chocolate chips, and sliced almonds. Add more milk if needed.
  • You can serve immediately, or chill for 30 minutes or several hours. It actually tastes better after the flavors have had a chance to blend. Serve with graham crackers or fresh fruit. We like granny smith apples.

Notes

The dip will thicken as it chills. I like to leave it out at room temperature for at least 30 minutes before serving. For best flavor, make sure you toast the almonds and coconut. I put mine in pie plates in a 400 degree oven and bake for a few minutes till they are lightly browned. The coconut takes about 5 minutes, the almonds take about 7.
