You've Gotta Try this Cookie Dough Dip

To top off an almost wasted day spent wandering around the house in circles and browsing the Internet in between wanders, I made this absolutely decadent, certainly not healthful, totally delicious Monster Cookie Dough Dip. Oh. My. Giddy. Aunt. Someone please save me from myself, it is so nice.

I found it on Skip to my Lou, a gorgeous blog full of fun craft ideas and yummy recipes. Thankfully all the ingredients were already in my kitchen, just begging to be turned into cookie dough dip. Even the mini M&Ms (I stocked up when they were on half price sale a couple of weeks ago) and they are not something we would normally have in the house.  I took it as a sign I was meant to make this dip. Who am I to argue with signs? So I went ahead and made it.

I also had dibs on licking the beaters, that's how good this dip is. Everyone else had to wait to get a taste.

It's not something I'd make regularly. Probably once a year for a special occasion so I'm not worried about the fat content or the sugar content or even using M&Ms. It will be a truly rare treat. But if you are looking for a decadent dessert and want to try something new Monster Cookie Dough Dip may well be what you're looking for.

Be warned - this recipe makes a lot - I filled two noodle bowls with the dip. One I've transferred to a Tupperware container and put in the freezer. It should freeze well; cream cheese freezes well if it's whipped and the other ingredients are all freezer-friendly. Hannah mentioned turning it into ice-cream when she feels better and I think it's a great idea.

Next time I make this recipe I'll halve it. While I'm sure it would all get eaten, it really does make too much for a normal (for Australia anyway) sweet.

I also think it would be beyond delicious if Nutella were to be used instead of peanut butter - I'm almost drooling thinking about a yummy chocolate concoction with shortbread fingers for dipping.

I've adapted the measurements and ingredients to our Australian terminology so just follow the recipe as it is below.

    1. Apple slices are good, or plain sweet biscuits, shortbread fingers, rusks (homemade) - whatever you like really.
