A lot of the texture depends on the temperature of your ingredients. If the dough comes out too runny, stick it in the refrigerator for a couple minutes. If it is too stiff, microwave it for just a couple seconds until softened.
Tips for customizing

Swap the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips (may not be vegan), M&Ms, or nuts
Use as a dip or spread for graham crackers, cookies, or apples
