To Fudge or Not To Fudge on Scrabble Dip?



Should we fudge on Scrabble?

That was the question we had to ask ourselves!

What would you do?

Imagine, for a moment, just what the possibilities could be!

But be careful, anything is liable to happen...





A Game of Scrabble Could be its Own Reward, but what if a Dip were Available to Enhance the Experience?


Let’s just say that if a friend's wallpaper project in her foyer became overwhelming for her and she asked you to help her finish it, and it took a long time as well as a lot of mental and physical energy, and then that friend said, “Hey, we did a good job, let’s celebrate,” well, you might suggest that the two of you would spend a couple of hours playing Scrabble and solving all the problems of the world the next day.

And if, during the next day's festivities, that friend happened to make the word fudge with her tiles, which happens to be a pretty good word to use when playing Scrabble, and it made you start thinking about chocolate so much that it caused you to mention your fondness for it to her (with an apparent yearning), she might perhaps somehow get the idea that a snack was in order.

So, the two of you could quickly get to the point of wanting something that is a little bit healthier than fudge, and that would likely make you decide to fiddle with a spur of the moment snack recipe.

Kicking around some ideas based on what was handy (because neither of you wanted to take time to go to a store) could make this an iffier proposition than the wall paper project, but you plunge in with bravado anyway.

Chocolate would still be the first ingredient, but what to do with it? Perhaps the better question is, what can't you do with it, but almond butter might sound pretty good too. However, if the only cracker type thingys in the house were organic tostidos…nah, nope, nada.

Hmmm...apple slices would be good for dipping if you melted the Ghirardelli with the MaraNatha and added some agave sweetener to the concoction, um, recipe. This is already good!

If all that happened, and if it turned out to be a very enjoyable snack, you could write a short quick hub about it and include the recipe. Since that would be the case in such a case, here you go!


Scrabble Dip is an Easy Recipe just for Fun

  • 2 Tablespoons Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips
  • 2 Tablespoons MaraNatha Almond Butter
  • 2 Scant Teaspoons Agave sweetener
  • 2 Large apples

Instructions

  1. Put a Tablespoon of the baking chips into two small microwave safe bowls and soften on a low setting. (Remember that chocolate burns easily.)
  2. Mix in a tablespoon of almond butter, warming again if needed to mix well.
  3. Stir a teaspoon of agave into each bowl, continuing to warm if necessary to mixing well.
  4. Wash, core, and slice 2 large apples.
  5. Serve with laughter and a cup of your favorite tea.

Cute idea! Scrabble is my game, but if I play it with my hubby it could take hours. So, I wait for my son to come visit. Now the chocolate idea...it wouldn't take him hours to consume that!!! Thanks for a fun read.

SusieQ42:

Thanks! Yes, it does take longer in some cases. Those are the games in which I get other things done. Waiting on the slow player would be a great time to make this recipe, and eat it too! :) (I've been known to crochet, write a hub, and a variety of other stuff and such during those waiting times.)

Thank you for reading the hub--and for adding to the conversation.

Cute introduction to get into the recipe. I noticed you use Agave for a sweetener. I use it too instead of dangerous chemical sweeteners. Nice healthy touch. I voted up and useful.

Sometimes those 3 letter words take the game! You might enjoy studying up on the 2 and 3 letter words that keep a Scrabble game moving. Still, if you take that extra time, shuffle your letter tiles around on your tray, you might come up with that word that gets you 50 extra bonus points. Not much in the grand scheme of things, but a fun mental vacation. Besides that, you can make and enjoy this recipe! So glad you like it and hope you do enjoy it with games you do like to play! :)

(Oh, I should tell you, one reason we enjoy the game is that we play a friendly game--even though we're all very competitive. We help each other make words and we stop each other from making duh-uh mistakes if we see them in time. We play to enjoy each other's company more than anything--then to exercise our brains.)

So appreciate your visits!

Scrabble and chocolate--how can one go wrong for some jolly good times. The recipe looks simple and easy, so I may just scrabble-up to some on my next scrabble session. Rated up.
