Peanut Butter Pattie Fun Dip

The classic Girl Scout cookie in dip form.  Creamy, sweet, crunchy. 
Need I say more?

If you are on Facebook at all, I'm sure you've seen the posts that read something like this:
My daughter is selling Girl Scout cookies!  They are taking over my laundry room!  Please buy a box so I don't eat them all!
Yeah, I fell into that trap too.  But I meant too.  Each year I buy a box or two {or three}, mainly because I feel like it is my civic duty as an American.  But also because they are so damn good.  My favorites are the caramel delights {or samoa}, thin mints or the peanut butter delights {or tagalongs}.
i.e. they have different names depending on where in the country they are made.  I know, who knew right?  Thanks Michelle, for clarifying.
So when my friend Ellie, an editor at Taste of Home magazine, emailed me saying they were having a Girl Scout Cookie Recipe Contest.....well, you know me, I just HAD to take part.  Any excuse to make a dessert with cookies.
As I was photographing this dish and snacking on it {you know, to make sure it was edible} I keep telling myself a few things.
It's healthy!
I'm eating it with apples!
A few bites are just a couple Weight Watchers points!
I'm not sure any of that is true, but it made me feel better.  At least, I wasn't like the husband, who asked me the next morning "what was I 'supposed' to eat with that good dip in the fridge"?
Umm, apples darling.
"Whoops, I just ate it by the spoonful"

So, if you have a sleeve of these cookies lying around, make this dip.  In fact, any peanut butter cookie would do, but I am partial to the pattie.

And here is an embarrassing tidbit for ya.  When I was pregnant with our second child and had a long, tedious, boring desk job, I was known to eat an ENTIRE SLEEVE of thin mints in an afternoon.

The job was boring people.  I needed something to fill the time.

  1. Ok, this looks absolutely amazing!

  2. I told you I was pretending to be YOUR age today:)

  3. Oh my goodness. I'm not going to lie - I totally read this as Peanut Butter FATTIE Fun Dip. :D Even so, it looks delicious, and not I need to go hide my box from my husband so I can save them to make this dip!!

  4. Hilarious! Considering we ate the whole batch in 36 hours it probably should be called FATTIE dip.

  5. Yum! This looks amazing :) I don't know if I could make this unless I was surrounded by at least 20 people to eat it with, or I'd eat it ALL.

  6. Oh what a great way to use girl scout cookies! Super YUM
