During the holiday season, one of my favorite traditions is gathering together with friends and family, to watch a holiday movie or two. Generally, the movies are classics, so we all have our own favorite parts we look forward to. There is something about sharing those familiar iconic moments together, that highlights the nature of the season.
Now whether ordering out for pizza, simply snacking or enjoying a traditional meal before viewing, at some point our sweet tooth’s will need to be satisfied. I want something special to enjoy with my favorite holiday films, but it also needs to be quick and easy. Like most of you, I’m pretty busy this time of year.
I made a simple four ingredient Raspberry Cheesecake dip, that can be whipped together in just a couple short minutes. The dessert dip was created to team-up perfectly with White Fudge FLIPZ® Chocolate Covered Pretzels. The combination gives you the full White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake experience, but in dip form. This allows everyone to have just as much as they like, rather than committing to a slice. It is much easier to eat while watching a movie too.
Raspberry Cheesecake Dip
- 1 cup pretzels
- 3 cups chocolate chips
- 1 12 oz can of sweetened condensed milk
- Line an 8x8 baking dish with parchment paper. In a microwave safe bowl, melt chocolate and sweetened condensed milk, by microwaving 30 seconds, stirring and repeating until melted. The fudge will begin to harden quickly so add the chopped (or whole) pretzels immediately then put into the pan. Put into the freezer for 2 hours before cutting.
I found it convenient to split the Raspberry Cheesecake Dip into two small dishes, so viewers not sitting close to each other can more easily enjoy the treat. Of course, you could always cover and refrigerate half for another night, if there are just two of you viewing. When picking up the FLIPZ® to make this treat, make sure to grab two (or more bags). You will need at least that many for the dip. The packages are resealable, so no worries about waste with this sweet salty crunchy treat.
I liked this dip so much, I’m thinking of making a version for one of the other FLIPZ® flavors. Maybe a peanut butter cheesecake version to go with Milk Chocolate FLIPZ®. It sounds like a deliciously fun combination. Oh, and be sure to stay on the lookout for FLIPZ® Limited Edition Snowflakes in Milk Chocolate and Candy Cane flavors. Wouldn’t they look cute with a dip like this.
Of course, my daughter’s preferred way to eat FLIPZ® is straight out of the bag. Visit the FLIPZ® community on Facebook for more tasty ways to enjoy them, as well as lots of other great ideas.
