As the twins get older I want to make sure that we keep making family time with them a priority. A fun way to do that is with family game night. It’s also fun now that the twins are older and we can play games that require more strategy, like Monopoly and Jenga.
Of course, when you are talking game nights with teenage boys, snacks are not just suggested, but they are required.
For our latest family game night I tried something new, M&M’s® Cookie Dough Dip. The tasted enjoyment of eating raw cookie dough, without the raw egg guilt. I picked up the ingredients I needed, including the big bag (42 ounces) of Milk Chocolate M&M’s®. This was great because I could use some of the M&M’s® in the recipe and have some to eat plain as well.
In addition to the M&M’s® you’ll also need:
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 ounces cream cheese
3/4 cup powdered sugar
1 cup M&M’s®
And if you don’t have any Hasbro® games around the house, you can pick up a couple of those while you’re at Walmart as well.
M&M’s® Cookie Dough Dip directions:
In a small saucepan melt the butter and brown sugar over medium heat, stirring continuously. After the sugar is dissolved remove heat and whisk in the vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl beat the cream cheese and powdered sugar together with an electric mixer, until smooth.
Slowly beat in the butter and sugar mixture.
Stir in the M&M’s®.
Serve with graham crackers, apple slices, or eat with a spoon. Store leftovers (if there are any) in the refrigerator.
Taking turns placing Jenga blocks, in between bites of M&M’s® Cookie Dough Dip.
