  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • chocolate, for grating


  1. In a medium bowl, beat the cream cheese until smooth.  Add the brown sugar and the vanilla and beat until completely smooth.
  2. In another bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form.  Take about 1/4 of the cream and stir it into the cream cheese mixture to lighten it up.  Add the remaining cream and fold in until completely combined.
