Ok! So I told you my last post was going to be the last post for 2012. . . . .
I may have lied just a little bit.
So it's New Years Eve guys. Are you having a party? or are you heading out and hitting the town in your glad rags?
I myself am heading down to my local for a few drinks but that doesn't mean I can party all day with my family and some yummy nibbles.
And what better than a sweet (but not overly sweet may I add) Cookie Dough Dip, with chocolate pretzels, naturally.
I have decided to fool myself while eating this, using apple segments as dippers, that I am in fact being healthy.
I'm totally not but my brain doesn't need to know that.
This is slightly tangier due to the cream cheese in the dip, but it's got brown sugar in there, a little flour and vanilla so, yup it is Cookie Dough.
What's even better this is so easy to make and only has a few ingredients, which more than likely you probably already have in your cupboards.
So if this is for your nibbles before you head out, or for that fabulous party your hosting this is a must have on the table.
I may be using apple for my dippers but you can use whatever you fancy. Pretzel sticks, Apples, Digestive Biscuits/Graham Crackers.
Honestly the possibilities are endless!
So have a great NYE however you choose to spend and I'll see you in 2013!
