It’s only 2 days ’til Christmas….how did that happen? LOL. The days are long but the years seem to fly by-well for me anyway. With Christmas approaching and people getting together for the holiday I had a request for some easy appetizers to bring to holiday parties and gatherings. So I thought I would show you guys a new recipe I found and also a recipe that I use as my solid go to!! Both of these recipes are dips of different forms. Does that even make sense… I don’t know? Let’s be honest my self-proclaimed expertise is not baking or cooking. However, these fabulous recipes have been created by the professionals and I am just following their lead!!
Cheesecake Cake Batter Dip
I found this recipe when I was scrolling through Facebook one day and I could not resist giving it a try. The recipe can be found at https://www.wineandglue.com/cheesecake-cake-batter-dip/. There is a lot of great recipes on this blog that you guys can check out! Sometimes knowing where to go for a good recipe is half the battle. Ok, so back to this cheesecake cake batter dip. I have made this dip two times and each time it was a hit and I brought little to nothing home with me. It’s also really easy to make and the list of ingredients is so simple (check out the link for info and directions). I took a picture the first time I made it so you guys can get an idea of how I served the dip. You won’t be disappointed!!
Mini Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball
This next recipe I found while looking around Pinterest for something other than a recipe but that is how it works. I love the idea of having a cheese ball in mini form! Also, the presentation factor of these is on point. Guests can just grab one and not have to battle with a whole cheese ball. The recipe can be found at https://www.honeyandbirch.com/mini-bacon-ranch-cheese-ball-recipe/. Her recipes are awesome and her food photos are outstanding. I’m taking this recipe to our family Christmas and I’m excited for everyone to try them out!! I snapped a picture of my finished product!! Yummy!!
If you are looking for something sweet or savory hopefully one of these dip ideas can be of use to you for holiday gatherings!! Also, they are both simple and won’t take to much of your time away from family and friends. Merry Christmas everyone!!
I look forward to the New Year and what it has in store for Pink Thoughts & Espresso Shots!! Thank you all for your support it means so much to me.
