Cookie Dough Dip

This weekend was so great!

I participated in the Color Run Saturday morning and it was a blast!  I started out in a squeaky clean white shirt and then I ended up like this:

I then proceeded to shower as fast as I could while still attempting to get all the color off of me so that I could drive to Chicago and get all dressed up to go downtown for my friend Anna's birthday.  It was a blast!

It was a whirlwind of a weekend, but overall it was a great time! Now, it's back to lesson planning and getting very little sleep, but I am excited.  Tomorrow I am trying out a demonstration on Geometer's Sketchpad.  I am a little nervous because typically technology and I do not get along so well.  However, I am excited because if all goes well, it should be a pretty neat demonstration.

Also, after this super short, fairly random post, I have a cute recipe for a cookie dough dip that I shared with my Education Psychology class.  It was crazy yummy and we dipped graham crackers, animal crackers, and pretzels in this mouthwateringly good dip.  Also, it is a great dessert to make if you are like me and have practically no spare time, but still love to create fun food things.  Cooking and baking is what is keeping me sane right now, and this recipe is definitely one that I will make again as it is so easy to whip up and so yummy to devour!

Cookie Dough Dip (adapted from How Sweet It Is)

1 cup unsalted butter
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 8 oz low-fat cream cheese
1 cup non-fat plain greek yogurt
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1. In a medium bowl, melt butter in the microwave and then stir in the brown sugar until well combined.  Whisk in the vanilla.  Set aside to cool.
2. In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and greek yogurt together.  Beat in the powdered sugar.  Next, beat in the butter and brown sugar mixture.  Stir in the chocolate chips.
3. Serve with an assortment of yummy things to dip in this crazy-good dip (animal crackers, graham crackers, pretzels, fruit, your fingers...etc).

Enjoy :)
