Faux Cookie Dough Dip

I can’t resist an April Fools’ Day prank.

So on this auspicious day, may I share with you a funny little bit of faux foolishness?

Faux Cookie Dough Dip — deceptively delicious, with the texture and flavor of homemade cookie dough, but…wait for it…it’s actually a bean dip in disguise.

When snack time is over and no one has busted you, tell everyone they are now full of beans!
