Recipe for Scrabble Dip (and Fun)
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!
