Once you start eating this dip, you’ll have a tough time stopping. I’m not sure what it is but this dip is super addictive! It’s a recipe that my mom has made on Christmas Eve every year I can remember and I just started making for Ilya and myself last year (to thoroughly ensure we have enough to completely stuff ourselves beyond all reasonable levels, of course!). It’s seriously so yummy. I think it tastes best with pumpernickel pretzels (they sell them at Trader Joe’s here, not sure what other stores might carry them), but it’s also good with some wheat crackers (like Breton) or even just eating it off a spoon (don’t judge me!). Honestly, it’s that good…when I taste test it after it sits overnight, inevitably I end up eating several spoonfuls and then have to re-smooth the top to make it look presentable again (or not if I just make it for the 2 of us, we couldn’t careless how it looks).
This was one of those holiday items that was devoured before a photo could be snapped so darn…I had to make it again now in order to get a photo. Ilya and I are going to have to force ourselves to eat it ourselves. It’s a tough job but we’ll manage somehow!
