cappuccino 714x1024 Cappuccino Cookie Dip
Being that it is the day after Christmas, I have to ask; are you reading me on your spankin’ new computer/laptop/touchpad/smartphone/what am I missing?

Did Santa deliver? I mean, did he deliver!? Everything you asked for, and then some, was under that tree? I really hope so!

I have to wait one more week. He comes around here on New Year’s Day, early in the morning. Fingers crossed, he got me a new camera lens, a KitchenAid Mixer, and a brand new laptop. And Peace on Earth. I was super nice this year – I deserve all of it!

I also deserve a bowl of this dip. One big bowl all to myself.

You might have noticed that I am a coffee fiend. I like coffee. A lot. It’s the only indulgence we have left! “Don’t eat too much, it’s bad for you… Don’t sleep too much, it’s bad for you… Don’t drink, it’s bad for you…”¬†Geez!! For the love of living, shut up!

Thank goodness they agree that coffee is good for you.

Go brew a cup and make this dip as soon as you can. Make sure you have some cookies sitting around. Especially some of those Pirouline batons.

If you’re having a New Year’s Party, share this with your guests. They will love it!

    I didn’t actually ask Santa for much this Christmas, but I did get the new camera lens I wanted. Plus my 40th birthday is coming up and I want a pair of $400 Frye boots! Those things are gorgeous! As is this recipe, Kate. Nummy!

    Wow! I have not seen this combination before.
    Sounds great! I personally do not drink coffee, however my husband does. Infact, a lot of it.
    I may have to surprise him with this indeed.
    Fingers crossed for your wish list next week.
    Loving the KitchenAid mixer!
