I’ve served this dip at quite a few baby showers and parties, and no matter how much effort I put into making cute cupcakes, mini sandwiches, or fancy skewers, this is, without exception, the most popular food item. The crazy part is that it only requires 5 ingredients (including salt) and 5 minutes to make, but I guess that’s also what makes it perfect. This dip is the best balance of creamy, sweet, and salty, and if you are allergic to peanuts, any nut butter will work (my favorite peanut butter substitute is equal parts cashew and almond butter). Plus, if you’ve ever fed a toddler, this a great protein packed snack that helps prevent the hangry meltdowns.
