Rocky Road Brownie Batter Dip #Blogtober

Greek yogurt is the base of this delicious and healthy fruit dip!


 Today is the final day of Blogtober! I've had such a fabulous time sharing a new recipe with all of you, everyday during the month of October. For my last recipe, I wanted to share what I have made as a fun treat for today- Halloween. It is not Halloween themed, but the kids love this dip and I thought it would be a great time to share it. After all, how often does Halloween fall on a Saturday? This dip will be a great yummy addition to your Halloween weekend plans!


My kiddos and I are BIG fans of dips. You can bet that any time we go out for lunch, or dinner, we're ordering shrimp and lobster dip, or spinach artichoke dip as an appetizer. The kids are obsessed with any type of cheese-ball with crackers, onion dip, ranch dip..... the possibilities are endless. Heck, I'd be happy with a bowl of dip and chips/crackers for dinner! There is just something so comforting about dipping into a nice smooth flavourful dip. While most people think of dips as something savoury, I decided to go with a sweet dip.

When creating this dip, I knew I wanted to try making a chocolate dip, but I wanted it to be a little healthier. So, I went with a coconut Greek yogurt as the base. This dip with SO awesome. My kids dove right in and I loved that they were enjoying the healthy dip-ables that I served with it. The texture is smooth and there is a slight tang to the dip, thanks to the yogurt and cocoa powder. The pecans and marshmallow bits add a nice crunch and texture contrast. If you can not find marshmallow bits, you can use mini marshmallows, which have been cut into thirds, using clean kitchen shears.



Rocky Road Brownie Batter Dip

1 C 0% fat coconut Greek yogurt
1 1/2 Tbs cocoa powder
1 Tbs almond meal
2 1/2 Tbs powdered sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp almond extract
1 Tbs milk, if too thick
1/4 C pecans, finely chopped
1/4 C vanilla marshmallow bits
red and green apple slices
sliced bananas
graham crackers

In a bowl, whisk together the yogurt, cocoa powder, almond meal and powdered sugar; until smooth. Whisk in vanilla and almond extract and 1 Tbs of milk, if the dip feels too stiff and thick. Fold in pecans and marshmallow bits and transfer to a pretty bowl. Serve with apple slices, banana slices and graham crackers. When in season, strawberries would also be good with this dip.

Notes: to prevent apples and banana from browning, submerge into a bowl containing 2 cups of water and 3 Tbs lemon juice; and let soak for a few minutes. Remove to a paper towel and pat dry before placing on serving platter.

I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

  These Lemon Crinkle Cookies are deliciously tart, not too sweet, and pillow-y soft.  I have so many wonderful holiday baking memories. It wasn't until I was older, that Mom actually let me help her with all the tons of baking she did. When I was little, I'd sit and watch her work, fascinated at how easy she made it look. When I moved out on my own, my holiday baking tradition became one of re creating the desserts of my childhood. I went many years not being able to spend Christmas with my family, so my tradition was a way to feel closer to my them. After my children were born, I had wonderful plans for holiday traditions. Baking cookies, while the snow was gently falling outside. My children, prim and proper, not making a single mess, decorating cookies until they looked like works of art. Sounds pleasant, doesn't it? My wake up call came when my son was two. The cookie dough had been chilled and we were set to roll, cut and decorate our cookies. That's when I almost

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

 A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer. When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right?? This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.
