Gluten Free Cheerios Cookie Dough Cheese Dip + Giveaway



I'm always looking for new summertime snack options, after the first couple weeks of summer pass, I feel like we get into a rut and finding a kid friendly snack that can accommodate all their friends is especially challenging, we have a few with gluten sensitivity. The kids and I came up with an friendly alternative to just plain fruit.

What kid doesn't like Cheerios, cookie dough, chocolate and bananas?  

So why not add a new twist to your go to favorites, that's gluten free and yummy! 



Cookie Dough + Cheerios dip 

12 ounces of whipped cream cheese 
1/2 cup butter, softened 
1/2 cup powdered sugar  
1 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips 



for dipping

Dried Banana Chips (sweetened)

--------

Combined cream cheese, butter and powdered sugar in a bowl, mix until incorporated, then stir in mini-chocolate chips. Place a piece of parchment paper in a bowl, fill with the cream cheese mixture, form into a ball and cool in refrigerator for 2 hours (can be placed in freezer for 45 minutes).

Pour crushed Cheerios into a deep dish baking pan, take out the chilled cream cheese dip ball and roll it in the crushed Cheerios until fully covered.

Place in the middle of a serving dish and surround the dip with banana chips.

total prep time is 90 minutes - 3 hours (depending if you refrigerator to chill or use the freezer for quicker prep time).

Dip Serves 8-10 

All ingredients we purchased at Public Supermarket




I prefer to use a food processor to crush up the Cheerios, a plastic ziplock bag and wood mallet will work just fine too.



Parchment paper is a great non-stick wrap for forming the cookie dough cheese dip into a ball, but plastic wrap sprayed with nonstick cooking spray will do fine.



If you're short on time, placing the wrapped cookie dough cheese ball in the freezer will speed up the prep time by 75 minutes.


Cover the cookie dough cheese dip ball fully with the crushed Gluten Free Cheerios, looks pretty and makes it easy to pick up and plate it on to the serving dish. More Cheerios, more crunch!
 It's just so good!
