*Same amazing recipe, new photos on 3-28-2016!*
It’s hot outside and we haven't had rain in over a week. My evenings have been spent watering the yard and watching our puppy, Henry, run through the sprinkler. It’s hilarious. He sprints around the yard jumping at the steam of water. I really need to record him next time. It’s totally YouTube worthy.
When it’s a million degrees outside the last thing I want to do is heat up the oven so I thought I would share a no-bake recipe. This would be perfect for upcoming 4th of July parties too! The kids and adults will love it. I served it at a recent tailgate party. You might have to explain what it is but as soon as you say monster cookie dogh dip with cream cheese, butter, brown sugar, NO eggs…they will stop listening and start eating.
Once you have the base, you could even use other types of candy: reeces pieces, chopped up candy bars, mini-M&M’s, mini-chocolate chips, etc. Be creative!
Give it a whirl!

Monster Cookie Dough Dip
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/4 cup peanut butter (or more, depending on preference)
1-2 cups powdered sugar (or more, if you want a thick dip)
3 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup oats (more or less, depending on preference)
1 bag plain M&Ms*
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bag mini peanut butter cups*
*Reserve a few M&M’s and peanut butter cups for the top.
Use a mixer to combine the cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter until smooth.
Add the powdered sugar, starting with 1 cup (or 2 cups for a thicker dip), brown sugar, flour, and vanilla. Do a little taste test and add more peanut butter if you would like.
Use a spatula to mix in the oats, M&Ms, chocolate chips, and peanut butter cups. Do another little taste test to determine if you need more oats. The more you add, the thicker the dip.
Serve with vanilla wafers, graham crackers, or even pretzels. Warning: It’s also extremely easy to eat the dip with a spoon.
I stored in the refrigerator until serving but let set at room temperature before serving to make dipping a little easier. Serve with a knife if you made the dip thick.
