This weekend my family and I celebrated my husbands birthday. We did the adult thing and had a nice dinner together. However, even though we are getting older and don’t have traditional birthday parties anymore I still wanted to make his day special for him. Together we decided that a fun night out with friends was just what we needed. We called up our babysitter, called up our friends and I made snacks.
That’s the funny thing about getting older. . having a fun night out now involves snacks.
Because of my blog I sort of have a reputation for making really great food. Everyone always expects me to wow them when we get together. When we called up my husbands friends each one of them asked if I was making food. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love it.
I didn’t want to let anyone down so I got to work on coming up with something that I thought everybody would love and something that I thought would be different than anything they’d had before. Plus, I had to consider my husbands tastes because, after all, it was his birthday and I wanted him to like it too.
I decided that I would make a dip. . because dips are great for parties. . and I wanted something sweet since we weren’t having a cake. My husbands favorite candy is Butterfingers, but butterfingers wouldn’t go well in a dip. . too hard. Then I remembered the big game commercial I had seen about the new Butterfinger cups available at Walmart. Chocolate peanut buttery Butterfinger taste. . oh yes. . I was on to something!
One of the things I am famous for is my crack dip. It’s a concoction of cream cheese, sugars, chocolate and peanut butter. Changing it up a bit to taste more like creamy Butterfingers was the perfect idea!
I was right. It was perfect. The Butterfinger cups were soft enough to blend well into the dip and the taste was dead on. I served the dip with graham crackers and it was devoured in moments. My husband also loved the taste and had a great time on his birthday. Mission accomplished! 🙂
