Cookie Dough Dip
I thought about calling this Cookie Dough Crack. Pretty sure my mother would not approve. But I guarantee you you’ll keep going back for more and more and more dip. This goes without saying but… make this immediately.
It’s actually healthy. I mean, not horrible? It’s got chick peas and peanut butter so lots of protein! Definitely part health food for the body, part health food for the soul. I did say cookie dough, after all.
I made this dip for the first time upon my friend Lauren’s recommendation. She is both beautiful and brilliant. I kind of did a funny thing though… I made this dip for Amy in exchange for her sharing some of her Photoshop wizardry skillz with me (and did she ever!) The recipe makes a lot for just her and her man so I kept a little for myself. Is that wrong? No, I think it’s impossible for anything to be wrong that involves cookie dough dip. It’s a share-the-love kinda thing.
This dip is perfect for a party or just by yourself. I’ve seen people use graham crackers and apples as dippers, though I’m sure you can think of a whole world of other possibilities. My favorite dipper is a spoon. ha. Yeah. I don’t mess around with other nonsense… just straight from bowl to spoon to mouth. I’d eliminate the middle man but it’s Manners Month; I’m obligated to be on my best behavior.
If you’re concerned about how chick peas can taste like cookie dough, don’t be. I have no idea how it happens but it does. Let’s not question food science. The dip reminds me of those no-bake peanut butter oat cookies. You know the ones that are sugary and fudgy and delicious and also a billion calories each. This dip doesn’t have that problem. Like I said… practically a health food.
