With Thanksgiving under our belts (quite literally), we’ve shifted our attention to Christmas and New Year’s Eve. Let the celebrations continue! It was so beyond wonderful to be living closer to my extended family this year to celebrate Thanksgiving and I can’t wait to celebrate Christmas with everyone too. Ben is an only child and his parents actually just moved into a new house about 20 minutes from us so we’re all so close now. I feel very fortunate that our kids are going to grow up surrounded by family members.

My extended family always celebrates together on Christmas Eve. We could never attend because I feel so strongly about a lazy, mellow, chill, Christmas morning at home with just the four of us. It’s a very special time for our family and I feel it’s important to develop our own family traditions. Because of the distance, we weren’t able to make the trip to the Christmas Eve celebration since it would keep us away from home the next morning.

This year, though, we can have our cake and eat it too. And I can’t wait. It also means I get to cook even more — and there isn’t much I love more than cooking for other people. There’s always a need for fun dips, because who doesn’t love dip? Sweet dips, savory dips, they’re all welcome at any party.

About this tiramisu dip:

This tiramisu dip is made with mascarpone, cream cheese, espresso powder, vanilla extract, and cocoa powder. It’s sweetened with a touch of powdered sugar and its fluffy texture comes compliments of a bit of heavy whipping cream. It’s the perfect balance of coffee and chocolate flavors without either being overpowering. It’s sweet but not too sweet. If you’re wondering what to serve with this tiramisu dip, I loved dipping apple slices but ladyfingers (as pictured), graham crackers, or vanilla wafers are delicious, too. 

I might have put it on pancakes one morning. And it might have been the best thing ever.

Verdict: I loved this tiramisu dip, especially on pancakes!
Husband’s take: No complaints from the peanut gallery on this one.
Changes I would make: None are necessary but if you wanted to add a tablespoon or so of rum, it would add great flavor! You could always make it with kahlua – 1-2 tablespoons would be great! Add a little extra powdered sugar if it gets too thin.
Difficulty: Easy! It’s ready in ten minutes.
