MONSTER COOKIE DOUGH DIP #christmas #cookies

Wow. in reality…that’s all i can say.

they are saying a person’s real character is found out by what he does while nobody is looking…
I wager I’m a self-indulgent, starving Monster.

A Monster Cookie Dough Dip consuming idiot…

I made this dip around lunch time and could not forestall ingesting it. I ate so much I just decided to call it lunch. hey…peanut butter has protein in it.

I managed to shop a bit however for my husband to strive after he came home from golfing.

My husband, the personification of 2e6e3562d9dbc29d194484e1328ef239 stated, “Why can’t I forestall ingesting this?!!”

i spotted this on something Swanky. you can personalize it to be thinner like an real dip or thicker like cookie dough which is how i really like it. Serve it's going to graham crackers, apples, pretzels, or only a spoon (once more…how i love it).


  •  1 8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
  •  ½ cup butter , slightly softened
  •  1 cup creamy peanut butter
  •  2 cups powdered sugar
  •  3 Tablespoons brown sugar
  •  1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  •  1 teaspoon vanilla
  •  2 ½ cups rolled oats , old fashioned or quick (see Note)
  •  2/3 cup plain M&Ms (give or take)
  •  1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


  1. With a hand mixer or stand mixer, beat the cream cheese, butter, and peanut butter until easy.
  2. add within the powdered sugar, brown sugar, flour, and vanilla.
  3. the usage of the paddle attachment for your stand mixer or only a wood spoon, blend in the oats. you may need to use greater or much less here. I sincerely like the oats in it and a thicker dip so I brought plenty. remember the fact that the dip may even company up a chunk in the fridge.
  4. add the M&Ms and chocolate chips.
  5. shop within the refrigerator until serving. Serve with pretzels, graham crackers, or apple slices. you can dip or unfold this depending on how thick you made your dip. attempt now not to eat it all like I did!
  6. observe: you may use greater or less oats to modify the thickness of your dip. start with about 1 half of cups oats and maintain including until you attain your desired thickness. in case you use quick oats you might use much less when you consider that it's finer and will make the dough thicker.
