I go a little crazy over dips. I’m a finger food type of gal. If you see me at a party, I’ll be hanging out around the food table. The next day I hardly eat anything at all because of the “graze fest” that took place the night before. I’ll be the first to admit I have a problem. The other problem I’ve admitted before here on the blog and I’ll admit again is I’m not a big fan of fruit. I’m trying to eat more and the blog is definitely helping me try new things, but my love for fruit still has a long way to go.
If you’re wondering whether or not you should throw the cookies into the food processor or just do it the way I did with the rolling pin, I would choose the latter. The larger chunks of cookies literally make the dip.
Just to let you know, the recipe actually makes quite a bit. You may find yourself consuming the other half of the dip that didn’t fit into your serving bowl. I wonder if I could serve this as a salad with the apple slices cut up and mixed right in? What do you think? Too over the top?
I’ll let you know if I try it. If I do, you can certainly expect me to post about it. It’s kind of like Snickers Salad without the Snickers – throw in some animal cookies instead? Hmmm. Let me think about it while I eat the rest of my apple. I may need a bit more dip for that!
