Rocky Road Dip

Rocky Road Dip
Cheese dip and bean dip are great, but I’d really rather have chocolate! So let’s just combine the idea of dip with my love for sweets – Rocky Road Dip is the answer!

Actually, making room for this Rocky Road Dip between the Velveeta and guacamole at your next party is a really good idea.

Rocky Road Dip
Serve it up with graham crackers, animal crackers, nilla wafers, pretzels or a spoon :-)
I bet you could even spread some on your toast in the morning .. okay, maybe not.

Rocky Road Dip
Let’s point out the really good things about this recipe:
-no oven required
-only one mixing bowl needed
-uses only 4 measuring utensils (1 cup, 1/2 cup, 1 tsp and 1 tbsp)

Quick and easy – that’s what I like.

    This looks dangerous, Beth! I’m sure I couldn’t control myself around this dip. Love that it’s easy to make and it has a great combo of ingredients.

    • The First Year Blog — January 10, 2014 at 7:48 am

      It surely is dangerous!!

  8. Julie — January 12, 2014 at 11:04 am

    That looks amazing! My only criticism is that it’s really not going to help my New Year Healthy Eating resolution!
    Next party we have I’m giving this a try.

    • The First Year Blog — January 12, 2014 at 12:34 pm

      Haha, I agree – halving the recipe might be a good idea!

  9. Michelle — January 12, 2014 at 6:46 pm

    Oh, now this sounds delicious. I am definitely going to have to try it. Thanks for sharing on Foodie Friends Friday.

    • The First Year Blog — January 12, 2014 at 8:54 pm

  10. Rebecca @ Dorm Room Baker — January 13, 2014 at 3:42 pm

    I would love to eat this with animal crackers, or with a spoon, or my fingers! Savory dips are totally overrated I’d much rather have something sweet :).

    • The First Year Blog — January 13, 2014 at 5:29 pm

      I am right there with you Rebecca, chocolate everyday!

  11. Carrie @Frugal Foodie Mama — January 13, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    Oh yum! I think I could just sit down with that bowl and a spoon and eat the whole thing! ;)
    Thank you so much for sharing at Marvelous Mondays this week- pinned & sharing!
