My Weekend and Brownie Batter!!

I had such a wonderful weekend at home! I had so much fun with my cousin Jenni and my precious mother. Although they spent most of the time talking about sconces, tile, and sinks for our new home... I still managed to have a good time :) And of course make some yummy desserts.

On Friday I went with Meagan to our high school where we celebrated the third graduating class. I tried to get a picture of them throwing their caps, but this was all I managed to get. You can see the caps, but not the graduates. Oh well...


The reception was nice, but the cake wasn't nearly as good as the cake from our high school graduation. Not even close. 


Being so busy this weekend prevented me from blogging, but I have been meaning to post pictures of this amazing, healthy dessert. It is DEFINITELY worth trying. Probably my favorite healthy dessert recipe I have ever made.

The recipe comes from Chocolate Covered Katie and it is her Cookie Dough Dip. Instead of chocolate chips I added 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder to make it completely sugar free and so that's why I am calling it brownie batter. It's divine. 

My roommate made the Cookie Dough Dip from CCK that has sugar, and we both decided that the sugar free one was better. Now that is phenomenal. Dates beating brown sugar...



It is hard to believe that a chichpea-based dessert sweetened by dates could possibly taste good, much less amazing, but please trust me. It will take your taste buds to chocolate heaven. 


Happy Memorial Day!! And I hope all of you immediately start soaking your dates to make this dessert!

  5. Oh the dip looks so delicious! What did you eat it with? I can imagine it would be amazing with thin crip apple slices since there's peanut nutter in the recipe! And probably with some cinnamon biscuits... I must give it a go, haven't ever tried chickpea-containing dessert recipes but it looks too great to be suspicious!

    1. I actually just ate it plain because I love brownie batter so much haha. But I'm sure dipping apple slices would be very yummy as well.
