It has really begun to feel like fall around here. I bought an Aztec inspired poncho from Target that I have officially deemed my “bonfire outfit 2012.” I was able to wear that poncho to the first cold weather bonfire of the year. It was very comfy and I hope to wear it many, many times this season. My Mom is absolutely mortified that I bought it. Kelly and I also did some Halloween crafts this weekend. Pinterest has enabled even the uncrafty to get their craft on. We made Halloween hurricane vases which we will share later this week. Seriosuly, too cute! Thanks Pinterest!
We also came across this Oreo Dip on Pinterest. We just could not pass it up. We changed it a little bit by using cheesecake pudding and using raspberries and apples as dippers as well as chocolate graham crackers. I, personally, just cannot get enough of these cookie inspired dips. We did these ones last year. I love thinking of new things to dip. Don’t limit yourself to cookies for dipping. I thought strawberries would be great too but they didn’t look so hot at the grocery store. Grapes would be good, too. As a side note, this makes A LOT of dip. I bought a store bought Oreo pie crust, filled it with dip and froze it. Next time I need a last minute dessert I will have one in the freezer ready to go. I am a big fan of repurposing leftovers!
2 cups cold milk
1 small package of cheesecake pudding
24 Oreos, crushed
8 ounces Cool Whip, defrosted
Chocolate graham crackers
Whisk together the milk and pudding mix. Fold in the Cool Whip. Fold in the crushed Oreos. Refrigerate until ready to serve; at least 1 hour. Prepare dippers.
