Cookie Butter Dip with Cinnamon-Sugar Pita Chips

Have you heard of dessert dip? I hadn't, until my Pinterest feed became overrun with all manner of recipes for just that, not that long ago.

Seems I had some catching up to do, as the array of sweet dips out there is nothing short of mind-boggling:

Cookies and Cream. S'mores. Tiramisu. Funfetti (of course).

I could go on and on.

And I totally get the appeal. They all whip up in the mixer or food processor in about 5 minutes, yield enough to serve a crowd and work with pretty much anything you can think to dip!

I decided to make up for lost time, and started with one of my favorite sweets—speculoos cookies!

Just like a proper dessert dip, this one has just a handful of ingredients, and comes together in about five minutes.

Of course, you can serve this up with any of your favorite "dippers"—apple slices, pretzel sticks, animal crackers. But I couldn't resist pairing this dip with some delicious (and easy!) homemade cinnamon-sugar pita chips!

Better late than never, right?
