Today, my nieces are back to school from summer vacation. I decided to whip up a fun (and easy!) after-school snack for them to enjoy… because I’m not like those regular aunts; I’m a cool aunt. (Okay, and maybe a little dorky, too.)
Wee! It’s already the 15th of June?! That means summer is only seven days away. Yee-haw! I’ll definitely need to get drink-ready – I’m suddenly craving mocktails and cocktails that are fruit-infused, sweet, and delicious.
I’ve really fallen in love with developing my own recipes and after posting about National Chip and Dip Day, I was feeling really inspired.
I put together a step-by-step guide on how to make my latest creation. This dip is perfect for just about anything, but I prefer it with rigged potato chips or celery sticks!
Step 1) Start with a few dollops of mayonnaise – the more the better. Remember: you want as much of a creamy consistency as possible.
Step 2) I absolutely adore that sweet-and-salty combination so, believe it or not, I add 2 tablespoons of honey to my mixture. Trust me, it works.
Step 3) Every good recipe is filled with spices, so add about 2 teaspoons of thyme.
(Make sure to mix it well!)
Step 4) The best part to any dip is being able to incorporate some of your favorite snacks. For this step, the sky is the limit for possibilities and you can use whatever’s in your pantry. I opted for the breakfast cereal I always reached for as a little girl.
…and have a wonderful weekend!
What a wonderful day! I know Easter is just around the corner, but when I learned that March 23 would be ‘National Chips and Dip Day,’ I had to call for a celebration. My celebration extended to picking up my favorite bag of rippled potato chips (because they’re the best for dipping!) and some cool, ranch sauce. Ta-da! Celebration complete. (Okay, I guess it doesn’t take much to impress me)
