There’s been a little bit of celebrating going on at our house the last couple days.
My Taylor turned 16 on Monday (he’s so excited he can finally drive, I on the other hand am perfectly fine with him NOT driving). Then yesterday the doctor cleared him to get rid of his crutches. He still has to wear the boot for the next week and slowly ease out of it, but at least no more crutches. He is ecstatic because now he can go get his license since he doesn’t have to wear the booth 24/7. Oh how I hate having new teenage drivers. If only they were as excited about doing chores and helping around the house as they are about getting their license and being able to drive. Seriously though, right?
Anyway, the Superbowl is just a few weeks away and I’ve got the perfect dip for you to make for your Superbowl party.
If you love oatmeal cookies, you will love this dip.
It’s like eating oatmeal cookie dough (and we all know how I feel about cookie dough). This dip is so delicious. I love the creaminess from the cream cheese and the nutty texture that the oatmeal gives it. Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorites, as long as there aren’t any raisins in them. Although I do love Paradise Baker’s oatmeal raisin cookie, but normally I would take oatmeal chocolate chip any day over oatmeal raisin.
We dipped graham crackers, Nilla wafers and pretzels in this bowl of yumminess, and while they were all delicious, my favorite was the pretzels because I love the sweet and salty thing. I think apples would be delicious too.
I figured it’s “oatmeal” cookie dough dip so it’s totally healthy, right? My boys loved this and so did I.
- 1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, soft
- 1/2 cup butter , soft
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 4 tbsp brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup flour
- 2 tsp cinnamon
- 2 1/2 cups quick oats
- 1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup mini M&M's
- milk (optional)
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, brown sugar and vanilla until creamy.
Add the flour and cinnamon and mix until combined.
Stir in the oats and chocolate chips and mini M&M's Add milk if you want a thinner consistency.
Serve with vanilla wafers, graham crackers, pretzels or anything you choose.
The recipe called for 3/4 cup raisins, but since I'm not a fan of raisins in cookie dough, I opted for the obvious alternative . . . chocolate chips and M&M's. I'll also threw in a couple extra tablespoons of oatmeal, because doesn't that make it healthier?
