HHjr brought me these Stacy’s Salted Caramel Pita Chips to try and there was a recipe for cheesecake dip on the bag

Yum.  You can use it like this or add any candy you want.  I added chopped Snickers because that’s what we had leftover…  One group of trick or treaters gave their candy back~

Yep, they gave me the candy back!

“We can’t have anything with nuts,” they said, as I gazed forlornly at my super cute treat bowl full of Snickers and Peanut M&Ms…I felt terrible!

^^’

“Mom, you can’t give out anything with nuts!” DD told me later… and I filled my bowl with clementines 😦

This dip was delicious with the salted caramel pita chips, or you could use graham crackers, any thin cookie, or spread it on apple slices

It’s pretty good by the spoonful too!

  4. Darling tree with lots of spirit.

    Amazing idea for dip. Thanks for the new flavor of Stacy’s pita chips. Self serve dessert for game watching is a great idea and served on your hand painted plate is perfect!

    Hope the game goes our way tonight.
