Food blogging is like fashion – you have to work at least two months ahead of the upcoming season. I was experimenting with Halloween goodies in August, holiday cookies in October, and I started making Valentine’s treats before the New Year. My kids are so confused.
This dip came about from a no-bake Christmas cookie I was trying. It was pretty bad; taste was less than desirable and the texture was even worse…so I changed the ingredients and ended up with an awesome sweet dip! I also ended up licking the spoon. Sometimes it’s those failures that turn out to be wins.
I love this. And I’ll probably serve it for Super Bowl Sunday along side my Cookie Dough Dip. And perhaps some insulin shots…
