This past weekend I got together with some fellow bloggers in Scituate, MA for a Dips and Drinks party! Such a fun theme right?
Kate was our host and welcomed us into her brand new home with a delicious sparkling grapefruit cocktail. We had so much fun eating, taking photos, and catching up on what everyone has been up to.
How adorable are those napkins? You can check out more of our photos using #idipyoudipwedip on Instagram.
This amazing tower of chips you see pictured here was provided by Food Should Taste Good™. All of their products are made with real ingredients, zero trans fats, and no cholesterol. They are also certified gluten free and Kosher. We got to sample an array of flavors including multigrain, sweet potato, and guacamole. Check them out, I bet you will recognize them once you see the packaging!
I am putting radishes on every veggie plate going forward. They are so pretty and a great dipping item!
I am obsessed with Mexican street corn (Toro‘s is my all time fave) and when Kate said she made a street corn dip I was STOKED!! She even made recipes cards featuring everyone’s recipes and I cannot wait to make this one myself. She also made a really tasty Sriracha Hummus.
Kate really knew the way to my heart that day and also made a dessert dip that tasted just like a cannoli! How did she know that the chocolate chip ones are my favorite 🙂
Pizzelle’s, a traditional italian waffle cookie, were perfect along side the dip! My old roommate Lesley used to have a pizelle maker and I would gobble them up when she made them around the holidays.
My dip contribution was also a dessert dip and a take on one of my favorite childhood snacks, Dunkaroos. Dunkaroos were these really tasty cookies you dipped into frosting – a childhood dream snack!! It seems like today they are only available in Canada or you can buy them on Amazon or ebay which made me sad and I was determined to find a way to make my own.
After doing some digging around on Pinterest I found a recipe that worked perfectly!
It is made with greek yogurt so it is technically healthy right?! hah
I had to share these photos that some other bloggers took of my dish during the party….they were way prettier than mine 🙂
Adapted from Eat Yourself Skinny
- 1 box Funfetti cake mix (15.25 oz box)
- 2 cups fat-free plain yogurt
- 1 cup lite Cool Whip
- Vanilla Animal Crackers
- The the bowl of a stand mixer mix together cake mix, plain yogurt and Cool Whip until completely combined and you see no more lumps.
- Cover with plastic wrap and chill for about 4 hours.
- When ready to serve, top with additional sprinkles (optional) and serve with animal crackers for dipping.
Everyone loved this dip and I definitely plan to make it again for future parties…sprinkles are ALWAYS a crowd pleaser!!
