Dreamy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip

It's all about the food....'bout the food...'bout the food this month as December is the season for parties. You have Christmas parties for work, Christmas parties with family and friends, another Christmas party with your other friends, and the Christmas party with your neighbors. And that's just the Christmas parties. Then there's the New Years Eve parties and New Years parties.

You'll not only need food for main courses, but you'll need appetizers, chips and dips, and drink ideas. Plus you'll need food for the kids while you're out doing "grown up stuff".

This dip is perfect for any of the above. Plus it's quick and easy to make and you probably have all the ingredients in your cupboards right now.

It's also quite versatile. You can serve it with anything from graham crackers, pretzels, chocolate or vanilla wafers to banana chips and plantain chips. Trust me, I tried them all, for the sake of saving you from having to do all the hard work, of course.

I'll just dance a little more this season to help burn off the calories. Ha, if you saw me dance you wouldn't have let me taste test my dip with all the different dippers {chuckle}. Remember that Seinfeld episode where Elaine dances....

 Feel free to try it with your own likings and let me know what combinations you serve it up with.

Dreamy Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Dip


8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter

1 teaspoon cinnamon

6 Tablespoons honey


In a medium sized mixing bowl, add cream cheese and peanut butter, blending together until creamy.

Mix in cinnamon and honey throughout mixture. Mixture will be thick like a cookie dough.

Refrigerate in an air tight container until ready to serve. Can be stored refrigerated up to one week.

Serve in a bowl with side of pretzels, wafers, banana chips, plantains, or Annie's cocoa and vanilla gluten free bunny crackers, as pictured in the photos.

*Helpful Hints*

- Can also use whipped cream cheese, low-fat or fat-free cream cheese, or Neufchatel cheese, room temperature.
