Mint Chocolate Cream Cheese Dip

Mint Cream Cheese Dip

Not gonna lie. I had a killer sweet tooth yesterday and there werer no sweets in sight.

I took a mental stock of what I had on hand. Cream Cheese. A variety of choco....Andes Mint Chips! Yep, I'm making a dip.

Mint Chocolate Cream Cheese Dip!

Within 10 minutes I was dipping graham crackers into this bowl of magic. Sweet tooth satisfied.

Shortly after I jumped on the treadmill for an hour to close out the weekend. It's all about balance, right?
