This cookie dough dip happened by accident.
Or rather… the ingredients that I whipped together accidentally turned into a dip.
My original intention was to make cookie dough balls, but the mixture I ended up with was too thin to form into anything other than a gloppy mess.
As I stood in the kitchen eating mini spoonful after mini spoonful of what I figured was a failed recipe, the idea of cookie dough dip came to me.
Thick, rich, sweet, and completely decadent… yep, this dip tastes just like cookie dough!
Now this isn’t exactly a light snack, but the calories come from healthy sources of fat (almond and walnuts) and the amount of added sugar is fairly low. Think of it as a concentrated pureed trail mix; in other words, it’s fueling and filling and fantastic =).
Smear it onto toasted bread, dunk crunchy graham crackers or crisp apple slices into it, spoon it on top of hot oatmeal, or eat it straight out of the jar.
Just make it. And tell me what you think!
