Create an easy-to-make snack and pair apple slices, waffle sticks and celery with this kid-friendly Peanut Butter Dip treat.
Remember when you were a kid and the only thing better than peanut butter cookie dough was chocolate chip cookie dough? Oh, who am I kidding. The same thing still stands as an adult. Peanut butter cookie dough is freaking good. Well, you know what? This dip actually tastes like peanut butter cookie dough.
I love me a nice crunchy tart yet sweet apple. Honeycrisps and pink ladies are my favorites. But what’s better than a really good apple? An apple dipped in this stuff, that’s what. I wanted to feel like a kid again so I toasted up a freezer waffle and used that for the dip too. Soooo flippin’ good! That’s my son’s hand in the picture. Isn’t it cute? He loves helping me with my food photos because that means he gets the first bite. I make my kids earn their keep.
I like to make a special apple waffle peanut butter dip combo. Doesn’t this little bite sized treat look yum? Its not the healthiest dip. I’m not claiming that it is. I’m just telling you that it tastes great. There are endless dippers you can use too – apples, waffles, crackers, pretzel sticks, celery, your fingers, etc. Take my advice and make this with crunchy peanut butter. You can thank me later.
