‘Tis the season for parties…. and dips… and desserts… and platters of food!
I flippin’ love it!
I was planning on making a Christmas dessert dip platter for an ugly sweater party I am going to. When thinking of what to dip in them, I remembered about these Chocolate Wavy Lay’s Chips. They would be the perfect tasty vehicle for my dips. Talk about taking it to the next level!
I knew I HAD to have them. I immediately made Janette jump in the car and take me to search for some. Lucky for us, our Target was well-stocked and the chips were very easy to find.
They come in three flavors (Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and Milk Chocolate covered with Almond Bits). Of course, I have no self-control, so I bought them all.
I could not stop dipping the Milk Chocolate with Almond Bits Chocolate Wavy Lay’s in the Gingerbread dip. So good!
A few gingerbread men were sacrificed to bring us this deliciousness. They may be gone, but they will never be forgotten. Thank you for your tasty sacrifice, Mr. Gingermen.
I’m particularly partial to the Christmas Cookie Dough Dip. Who wouldn’t want to sit down and eat a whole tub of festive cookie dough? Hey, it’s the holidays and calories don’t count! 😉
The Peppermint Fluff Dip is particularly good with the Dark Chocolate Wavy Lay’s. It gives it sort of a peppermint mocha vibe.
Honestly, these Chocolate Wavy Lay’s were even better than I imagined. They are seriously the perfect sweet & salty combo. I think pairing them with these Christmas dips yields the perfect Holiday treat!
The only downside to these chips? They’re only in stores for a limited time. Make sure you head to Target to get some of this deliciousness while you still can! (You can also grab them at Target.com)
Oh, and I heard through the grapevine that if you leave out a Christmas Dessert Dip Platter and some Chocolate Wavy Lay’s for Santa, you automatically get put on the “Nice” list. 😉
