Well, my plan to post BBQ chicken legs this week didn’t happen. We did make them for our Superbowl party (2 dozen of them, actually) but things were so hectic during the actual evening that I didn’t get a photo of them on the grill, or ready to eat.
Surprise! Cookie Dough Dip to save the day (you’ll probably like this recipe better, anyway.) I first had Cookie Dough Dip at our New Year’s Eve party when one of our friends Emily brought it over. I had never heard of, seen, or tasted Cookie Dough Dip – and its always refreshing for an avid cook to realize that there are still so many awesome recipes floating around this world just waiting to be discovered. I decided that this sweet and creamy dip was the perfect dessert for our Superbowl party and couldn’t wait to whip it up!
What’s awesome to me is that this dip, despite being loaded with cream cheese (which isn’t in cookie dough!) tastes so similar to cookie dough! Serve with teddy grahams, graham crackers, or fresh fruit.
