Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip

Pinterest Challenge



Welcome to the February Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop! The purpose of this hop is to motivate us to not just hoard pins, but to make it happen! 
I was looking to make something I could serve at a party such as a viewing party for The Final Four! I went searching for dessert dips, and after drooling for a few minutes over all the fabulous recipes, I came upon a post from Amanda, blogger and owner of The Chunky Chef. Her Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake Dip was exactly what I was looking for! Amanda's recipe was so easy to follow and I loved it. Doesn't it look fantastic!?

I made a few simple changes to the recipe. I added salt because I wanted to tone down the sweetness just a bit, and I added chopped peanuts, because I knew my guests would love the peanut bite in this dip, and they fit right in to the recipe with the peanut butter and chocolate!  I also changed the peanut butter cups to the mini size. I will definitely make this dip again and again.                          

 Peanut Butter Cheesecake Dip
(printable recipe at end of page)

8 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/4 cup packed Brown Sugar
3/4 cup Peanut Butter
1 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup lightly salted Peanuts, chopped
1 cup mini Peanut Butter Cups, cut into quarters




Place cream cheese and butter in a bowl. Use a mixer to blend together. Add brown sugar, peanut butter, vanilla and salt.

Mix until smooth and creamy.
Chop peanuts.
Cut peanut butter cups into quarters. Mix peanuts and peanut butter cups into mix. 
Serve dip with chocolate graham crackers, 'nilla wafers, or even apple slices!
Such a great dip recipe!  Thank you Amanda for a fun, tasty, and easy to make recipe! Plus it can be made ahead of time for party planning ease!

Monster Munch and Pinterest Blog Hop

It is time again for our Pinterest Inspired Blog Hop!  Today I made some Monster Munch from the blog, Our Best Bites, authored by Sara and Kate. When I saw the picture of this Monster Munch on Pinterest, I immediately knew I would be making it. I actually made 4 bags and they are going in the Halloween care package I am sending to my son and his roommates. It is incredibly delicious. I know they will love it, and so will you!
Monster Munch
  • 1 package Almond Bark (1 pound)
  • 12 cups cooked Popcorn 
  • 1 cups Candy Corn
  • 2 cups Pretzels
  • 1 cup Reese's Pieces
I made the following changes to the original recipe:
I added the pretzels instead of peanuts, and
increased the amount to 2 cups.
I increased the amount of Reeses Pieces to 1 cup.
Check out Our Best Bites for the original recipe.
 
Have a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper 
ready when you take this off the stove.

Start your almond bark melting on the stove in a double boiler.
Keep it on low for the best results. 
As you are preparing the rest of the recipe, 
just stir it a couple times.
I broke each pretzel into about 3 pieces. I thought
these might be too big.
Place your popcorn in a very large bowl.
Add the pretzels, candy corn, and Reese's Pieces.
Mix it together so it is well combined.
Once your almond bark is melted, 
pour it into your bowl over the popcorn, candy, and pretzels.
Mix it really well. 
Pour it onto your prepared baking sheet, 
and spread it all over the sheet.
Let it cool.
Once cool, crack the popcorn bark into pieces.
You could put it in a bowl to "munch" on,......
or wrap it up in these cute clear bags.
What a great treat, that everyone would love to get!

Happy Halloween!
