Dip #3–Chocolate Cloud Dip

July 21, 2011 by admin

This dip comes from a fun book for kids called “Little Monsters Cookbook” by Zac Williams. He called it “Monster-in-the-Moat Fondue” but there’s nothing monstery about it unless you put a chopped off finger in there and that would be horrifying. That’s why I re-named it. We’re calling it “Chocolate Cloud Dip” in my house because it’s super fast, creamy, and fluffy like a cloud. Wrong color for a cloud though.

Anywho…

Yesterday was so hot and the kids wanted a treat. I whipped this up in under three minutes. I’m not kidding. It’s a three-minute snack. AND you can make it while kids cling to your legs.

 

THE RECIPE

1 cup whipping cream

1/4 cup chocolate drink mix (Nesquick)

1 tablespoon peanut  butter

fruit or pretzels for dipping

 

THE PROCESS

1. Put the stuff in a mixing bowl. 2. Mix it until smooth and fluffy.

That’s it. There’s really nothing more to say. This recipe is so easy it seems like you must be forgetting something.

 

THE VERDICT

We Love LOVE LOVE this! Seriously. We give it 5 out of 5 pretzels. Why? It’s easy. It has three ingredients. The kids love it. AND you could even serve this as a dessert. Seriously. Put a little Grand Marnier in the bottom of a glass with a strawberry in it and pour the mousse over it…just don’t serve that one to the kids. And don’t tell anyone there’s Nesquick in it. That will be our little secret.

 

THE DUNKABLES

We used strawberries, bananas, and blueberries because that’s what we had in the fridge. You could also do marshmallows, graham crackers, cookies, pretzels, or just use a plain old spoon. It’s so good. Really.

Here’s proof:

      Ha! He gives me that look ALL THE TIME. He’s old-school tough. If he ever says “You talkin’ to me?” I’ll be really concerned. And, hey, thanks for the first comment on my new blog!
