If you haven’t already purchased The Girl Who Ate Everything Cookbook, you need to do it ASAP. Put in on your Christmas wish list! It’s such a great cookbook full of easy, mouth-watering recipes your family will love! Christy is my sister-in-law, so even though I’m a little biased, I just think she’s amazing for creating such a beautiful book. I know how hard she worked on it and think it turned out perfect. And I know how good the food she makes is:) She’s so talented and someone I look up to- as a mother (of five!), a blogger, baker and chef, and just a genuinely kind and loving person.
My first visit to Christy’s house she had a huge bowl of Peanut Butter M&M’s on the night stand in the room we stayed in. Right then I knew I’d love her! It’s been fun to share our journeys in food blogging together. As well as our love for all things chocolate and peanut butter, diet dr. pepper, running, and cookie dough:)
When I saw the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Dough Dip in her new cookbook I knew I had to try it.
Christy is also a great entertainer and loves bringing people together with food. I pictured her making this for a party or gathering with friends. And that’s exactly what I did! I made this dip for a girls game night last week and it was such a hit. I even sent some of it home with a friend….who couldn’t stop eating it :0
I only made one small change to the recipe and used chocolate chips and holiday M&M’s instead of raisins. That might be one thing she and I are different on…I don’t do raisins. So I just added chocolate, because oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are probably my fav.
Serve this with graham crackers, pretzels, apple slices or just get crazy and eat it with a spoon!
