Today is the last day of dip week. Boo! In my opinion dip is the best part of football season. To me baseball screams Vienna beef hot dogs and football season screams dip! (basketball = yawn) Football has been over for months now so we needed an excuse to make some dips! On Monday we made pizza dip. Excellent. Tuesday it was fruit salsa. My personal favorite. Wednesday it was queso blanco. Another good one. Thursday was rueben dip. Not a favorite of mine but Cliff and Macee really enjoyed it.
Today’s dip is Trio of dips: cookie dough edition. You start by making a base and then dividing it up and adding different ingredients to make 3 different cookie dough dips. We made snicker doodle, double chocolate, and peanut butter and chocolate. They were all good, but my absolute favorite was double chocolate. Other possible variations I thought of were adding heath bar chips, white chocolate and macadamia nuts, oats and raisins and mini M&M’s.
½ cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened
½ cup powdered sugar
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup chocolate chips, divided
½ Tablespoon cinnamon
¼ cup peanut butter
¼ cup cocoa powder
Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the brown sugar and whisk until it is dissolved and the mixture starts to bubble. Set aside to cool and whisk in the vanilla. Cream together cream cheese and powdered sugar for 1 minute. Mix on low speed, add in brown sugar/butter mixture. Mix until combined. Divide the mixture into 3 small bowls.
In 1 bowl add the cinnamon. Mix.
In 1 bowl add ¼ cup of chocolate chips and ¼ cup of cocoa powder. Mix.
In 1 bowl add ¼ cup of peanut butter and ¼ cup of chocolate chips. Mix.
We served this with teddy grahams and animal crackers but you could be slightly healthier and serve with apples.
