Easy Peasy Pleasy Tips

  • I could not find the ghouls M&Ms in my local store, so I made a quick online order and had Halloween M&Ms on my porch in two days.
  • This recipe is adaptable for any event. You can use regular or specific color M&Ms to make this dip special any time of year.
  • Use individual dipping cups for easy self-serve.
  • As always, let your cream cheese and butter soften.
  • If you are making this recipe the day before, refrigerate. Then, set out to soften before your event.
  • Serve with pretzels, graham crackers, Nilla Wafers or even apple slices.
  • This dip would be a terrific addition to a Halloween or kids’ charcuterie board.
