     Monster cookie dip is a super fun snack for all of the monster cookie lovers in your life. It is kind of like getting permission to eat cookie dough. Plus you can use fun dippers to do it!  Put this on your must make list for your next get together.


       My husband and I always host our friends and family for big football games.  Sometimes its just a random Sunday and our Steelers are playing, or a fun playoff game.  We always have a spread of food and people come and go and grab a bite.

      For the biggest game of the season, we do it even bigger.  We set up two TVs in the living room and another one in the dining room.  The food spread gets bigger too!  MiMi made this monster cookie dip a few years back and it was a hit.

     So when she asked what she could bring to the shindig this year, of course I suggested this.  While she was at it we grabbed some pics and she wrote a post to go along with it. So without further ado, her is MiMi:

      Carlee and Matt hosted a Big Game Party and invited family and friends.  As with most parties I got busy thinking about what I could make to bring.  I got this idea from a food blog titled The Girl Who Ate Everything.


     I pretty much followed what she did, but I added a little extra brown sugar and vanilla knowing that's the way my family would like it.  Carlee had so many wonderful things to eat that everybody was pretty full by the time we put the sweets out.



   Most of her guests were curious so they put a little on their plate so they could try it.  I happened to be sitting in the dining room where the food was being served.  It got to be funny watching those that thought they would just want a little taste come back and fill their plates.  This was quick and easy to make and something that we had never tried before, but will certainly enjoy again!

    We really love serving sweet dips and cheese balls at parties.  They are easier to serve than fancy baked desserts plus they are easier for people to munch on without having to commit to a big piece.  The fact that they can almost always be made ahead is a big bonus as well!

    If you are looking for more fun sweet dips, we have some more ideas for you! The red velvet cheese ball is always a fun one to serve.  Or there is always peanut butter and yogurt dip. We love it on fruit, but it would also be great on any of these dippers!  Do you have a favorite sweet dip?

  12. YUM! You need to tell Mimi that I am pinning this recipe cuz I need to make it!

    I bet she had a lot of fun sitting there watching people come back for more, I think I would have parked myself right there in front of the Dip so I could have my share, most of it. Lol

    1. I am sure she appreciates it. I kept hearing her giggle as people who just wanted to try it came back for more (and more!) It was so darn good. Next time I want to try apple slice dippers, then it would be health food!
