As is the case for millions who religiously follow the site, Pinterest has become one of my greatest addictions. You can shop for clothes, learn how to chalk your hair, drool over sexy actors, find a healthy alternative to your favorite dish, bake a sweet treat, or discover a new fitness routine. I’ve read about how to marble my nails and perfect a yoga pose, but I never go further than nodding my head and telling myself, “Yeah, I could definitely do that backward bend.” Until now.
“Pinterested” is a new column all about finding awesome ideas on Pinterest and trying them out in the real world. This weekend, I came across an easy, quick, super-sweet recipe called “Cookie Dough Dip” from Addapinch.com . Luckily, I already had most of the ingredients in my house, so I gave it a whirl and, with the help of my trusty boyfriend, chronicled every thrilling moment of the culinary adventure for your viewing pleasure. Not shockingly, this recipe is mouth-wateringly delicious. But let’s be honest, you had me at cookie dough.
Cookie Dough Dip 
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup toffee bits
1) Cream together cream cheese and butter.
2) Add all remaining ingredients and mix until well combined.
3) Serve with whatever your little heart desires.
First, I laid out all my ingredients on the table so I could make sure that I wasn’t missing anything. Sugar? Check. Sugar? Check. More sugar? Check.
Next, I measured out all my ingredients and put the dry ingredients into little dishes so that when the time came to add them, I could just dump them in.
Now it’s time to get cookin’ … well, not really but you know what I mean. First I added the butter to my mixer. Paula Deen is right about one thing: butter is better.
Next I added the cream cheese and I mixed that with the butter until it had a creamy consistency. The two of them together makes heaven. That’s a little-known fact.
This is what heaven looks like.
Next came the confectioner’s sugar. I always mix my creamy creation with whatever ingredient I add into it before adding in the second one.
Followed by more sugar. Brown this time.
Now I add the vanilla. Easy does it. I don’t want to waste a drop of this goodness.
And now for some chocolate!
The toffee adds a little unexpected zing.
Voila! Cookie dough dip.
Don’t mind if I do …
Delicious. If you couldn’t tell by my stuffed cheeks, I’m quite content.
