My cat snores. Loudly.
The other morning I was awakened from a sound, dream-filled sleep to what sounded like someone screaming in my ear. I thought Jordan was having a nightmare. She wasn't.
What makes it even more special is that kitty likes to sleep in the corner of the bed...behind my head.
Every time I hear her snoring like a truck driver I wonder how such a sound comes out of a nine-pound animal. I want to record her so bad but she has a knack for her loudness at 3am, and I'm just not ready for video recording at that time of night.
This really has nothing to do with this dip, except that this dip is just slightly more amazing than her snoring.
It's peanut butter. And caramel. Oh, and some chocolate chips. Can't forget the chocolate!
It's good with apples. Or pretzels.
Or on a spoon.
Peanut Butter Caramel
1 bag caramel squares (about 45), unwrapped
1/3 cup whipping cream and 1/3 cup nonfat milk OR 2/3 cup
half and half
½ cup creamy peanut butter

Add the caramels and whipping cream/milk or half
and half to a medium saucepan. Heat over low heat and stir until the caramels
have melted into the cream (about 8-10 minutes).
Meanwhile, add peanut butter and chocolate chips
to a medium microwave safe bowl. Heat for 30-45 seconds and stir to combine.
Add hot caramel mixture to the peanut butter
mixture and stir to combine. Serve with apple slices, graham crackers and/or
