Chocolate Chip Cream Cheese

Jump to Recipe

We have a local bagel place that makes the most amazing chocolate chip cream cheese. Unfortunately, A) it can be super expensive to get enough to feed all my kids, and B) they don’t sell gluten-free bagels. So, adding to our list of things we are now making during quarantine … Chocolate chip cream cheese! Super easy. So good!

Chocolate chip deliciousness.
Necessity is the mother of invention!ย 

Necessity is the mother of invention, friends. We make a lot of bakery items at home – like Gluten-free Chocolate Chip Scones, Gluten-free Jelly Donuts, and our fam favorite Victoria Sandwich Cake, really because it can be tricky to find any of these items made gluten-free – but also because it can really be easy to DIY. I save money and time. Now that I have figured out how easy it is to make this cream cheese, we will definitely be making it again.

Delicious!! Make Your Own Almost Dessert Cream Cheese.

I am not exaggerating – I kind of want to cry because it tastes so good. This is what a million something days alone in your house with five kids will do to a person. Tears over cream cheese.

Homemade. Amazing.

I used two 8 ounce containers of cream cheese – one of them was whipped cream cheese. I really think you can use anything you have on hand. Look for some cream cheese on sale and grab 2! After I (literally) whipped up this cream cheese, I stored it in a pint container that looked legit like I had just picked it up at the deli. But I didn’t. Mom ingenuity for the win! Also … this made enough cream cheese to last us for almost two weeks!

Ingredients

  • 2 8 oz packages of cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons sugar more if you need it
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. I used containers of cream cheese because that's what I had on hand. I had one regular container and one container of whipped cream cheese. I think any kind of cream cheese will work for this.
  2. Put your ingredients in your stand mixer. Set to low and mix together. Taste test and see if you want it a little bit sweeter. We added a little more sugar.

I am a native New Englander now living in beautiful Charlotte, North Carolina and enjoying summers in sea-breezy Scituate, Massachusetts with my five small kids and two large dogs. I love to cook easy, local, and gluten-free for friends and family.

  1. Simple and fun! My kids thought they had gone to heaven when I served them bagels with this special chocolate chip cream cheese for breakfast!

  2. This chocolate chip cream cheese (I love the abbreviation as CCCC) is on my list to start tomorrow. I cannot wait to wake up to make it: it is so late tonight ๐Ÿ™‚ The cheese and a cute girl on pictures: they are both adorable.
