Who loves to eat cookie dough? If you’re not raising your hand right now…you are dead to me. No wait, that means we can be the BEST of friends because you’ll let me eat all the cookie dough…right???
I’ve had this flag dip in my head for ages. Because I am such a fabulous blogger, I’m bringing you this amazing recipe just a couple of weeks before the 4th of July so you can party in style. You’re welcome.
I don’t know if you’re like me, but as soon as Target started carrying the red, white, and blue M&M’s I was like, ohmygosh, and immediately bought four bags. Cause, duh, I knew I’d use them.
So I finally brought this dip to life. I wasn’t sure if I was going to go the cheese ball route or cookie dough route but I’m pretty darn sure this was the right choice. I made the most marvelous chocolate chip cookie dough and then added peanut butter chips and toffee baking bits because I’m a total glutton for punishment.
Outrageous, you guys. Like, hide in your room, blitz through the entire season of Scandal while systematically eating this entire dip with a box of animal crackers by your side for company. That.Good.
Oooor, you could go the responsible route and actually make this for the 4th of July and watch as your friends and family throw caution to the wind and enjoy the heck out of this amazing dip. Your call.
I actually laid out my design first on the counter and then tried really, really hard to make it work on the dip. I did pretty good. Once the top was done (above), I was stumped. I decided to just continue the pattern down the sides so it looked more seamless. You could also go all blue, all read, all white, or just leave it as is.
I used about one whole bag of M&M’s for this dip but buy two to be on the safe side. You never know if you’re going to get all reds or something.
- ¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
- ¾ cup brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- ½ tsp salt
- 1¾ cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup mini chocolate chips
- ¾ cup peanut butter chips
- ¾ cup Heath toffee bits
- 1-3 tbsp milk
- red, white, and blue M&M's
- animal crackers, Nilla wafers, graham crackers for serving
- Cream butter and sugars together in a large mixing bowl for 3 minutes.
- Mix in vanilla and salt until combined.
- Mix in flour just until combined.
- Stir in chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and toffee bits.
- Test the dough for consistency. You want the dough to be firm enough to hold it's shape and soft enough that you can press the M&M's into the dough and they'll stick,
- Stir in milk as needed. Start with one tablespoon and go from there. (I only needed one tablespoon.)
- Form the dough into a rectangle on a flat surface.
- Press the M&M's into the dough to create a flag. I started at the bottom row with red with M&M's and worked my way up. I did the sides last.
- The dip is ready to eat immediately.
- If refrigerating the dip for more than 2 hours before serving, do not add M&M's.
- Remove the dough from the fridge and let soften on the counter for 20 minutes before adding the M&M's.
