A simple idea for those summer gatherings.
Dip waffle/sugar cones in chocolate, fill with fresh fruit, serve with favorite fruit dip.
For the chocolate: Break a 3-4 oz. dark chocolate bar into a small bowl. Add 1 teaspoon coconut oil. Microwave 30 seconds at a time, stirring until melted and smooth. Dip cones in chocolate, allow to cool/set on waxed paper.
An easy fruit dip: Mix 1 block of cream cheese and 1 jar of Marshmallow Crème. Beat until a creamy consistency. Add orange or vanilla extract.
With a lot of summer family picnics, I am always looking for a fresh idea.
This presentation is especially nice.
My other favorite, last-minute idea is the oversized chocolate chip cookie.
Take 1 to 2 tubes of prepared, refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough, spread/flatten into a disposable aluminum pizza pan. Leave about 1-2 inches empty around the edges, since the dough will spread out. Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes. Cut into wedges while still warm.
Simple, and always a favorite.
Now, we just need it to stop raining.
