Peanut Butter Dip


Neither one of my kids are big veggie eaters but they can both devour a plate of fruit. They feed on fruit like they are starved creatures on a desolate land who have just discovered means of survival. No joke.

He could probably take podium at a Strawberry Eating Contest. haha

I found this recipe in my son's cookbook. Yes, at the tender age of 3 he has already started his cookbook collection. Or maybe I should say that I have started it for him... but hey, boys have to know how to cook too! I started his collection off with Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cookbook, it has awesome kid-friendly recipes and fun cartoon images to keep him interested in the book while we go through it together.

Peanut Butter Dip
adapted from Better Homes and Gardens New Junior Cookbook
Ingredients
8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup peanut butter, smooth or chunky or crunchy
2 tablespoons of your favorite jam
3 tablespoons of milk

Directions
1. Mix all ingredients together with electric mixer until well combined
2. Chill before serving (optional)
3. Enjoy! (not optional) ;)

Don't forget to use plasticware on your muffin pans, scratches are the worst!

I am proud to say that using a muffin pan as the serving tray for our peanut butter dip and fruit was an idea I had all on my own! Not too often do these strokes of ingenuity hit me, I just know I need to act upon them when they do. :)

So freakin' delicious!!
