It's the end of March, and for those who haven't been paying attention to your calendars, Easter is right around the corner! So, if you've started to plan your menu and are looking for a little inspiration, I am here to share a fantastic, simple dessert recipe that everyone from young to old will love. Oh, and it just happens to include chocolate too...the ambassador of Easter fun!
I think every one's sweet tooth goes into over drive around Easter. So many yummy treats to be enjoyed. Every where you look it's another chocolate indulgence. But I got to thinking why not incorporate that indulgence into an actual dessert course for a big Easter meal that is easy, delicious and fun for everyone of all ages.
And when I heard about the new MARS bites I knew they would be the perfect way to get my chocolate fix this Easter holiday, with ease and satisfaction! So, when I was at Walmart on my weekly grocery run, I was super excited to find them in the bagged candy aisle, just waiting for me to snatch them up!
At the end of a that big holiday meal filled with the traditional fare, why not surprise your family with something whimsical, hands friendly and scrumptious for dessert? Something they can dip perhaps? Let's face it. Any time you can dip something, it is 10 times more fun! Plus, this way the adults can have their candy too, without having to rummage through the kids' Easter baskets!
3 Musketeers Dip
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter, softened
3/4 c. powdered sugar
2 TBS brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 (6 oz.) bag 3 Musketeers Bites, coarsely chopped, a few reserved for garnish
Combine cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Mix on low speed until creamy.
Increase speed to medium and mix for 1 additional minute until well incorporated. Add chopped chocolate and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.
Scrape sides of bowl with rubber spatula. Transfer to serving dish. Garnish with extra chocolate. Serve with vanilla wafers and graham sticks.
