{flourless} Monster Cookie Dough Dip for a #SundaySupper Halloween Party

#SundaySupper is having a monster of a Halloween Party, so naturally I had to make you {flourless} Monster Cookie Dough Dip!  You’ve seen those recipes for Monster Cookies, right?  Basically they are a peanut butter oatmeal cookie loaded with chocolate chips and M&M’s or other candies.  Well, imagine a bowl full of the cookie dough!  Sure, this dip is packed with chocolate and peanut buttery goodness, but it’s actually made with a secret ingredient and doesn’t have any flour.  Oh yeah!!

OK OK OK, I’ll admit it.  I’m a candy-hoarder-and-swapper.  Tell me you’ve never done it – bought your bags of Halloween candy to give out to Trick-or-Treaters, and when you fill the bowl, you make sure all the Reese’s (or Butterfingers or Snickers or Milky Ways – whatever is your favorite) are down at the bottom of the bowl, hidden by all the nasty Kit Kats.  Because you know you buy bags of stuff you don’t like at all so that if any of those are left, you won’t be tempted to eat them and then don’t feel guilty at all when you polish off the bag of the aforementioned Reese’s.  Because there were three other bags of candy that you totally didn’t touch.

Of course then the logical next step is, when your kids get home from trick-or-treating, you go through their bag, you know, just to inspect the candy and make sure nobody hid needles in the Tootsie Rolls or laced the Smarties with arsenic.  Obviously the Reese’s and Snickers need to be tested by mom, so they go into the top shelf of the cabinet, the nasty stuff or choking hazards go into the big candy bowl to keep hiding those Reese’s give to the stragglers who should be home already and not ringing my doorbell I have two little ones and it’s late so you get the crap!!  At the end of the night, the Reese’s that those clearly unobservant kids didn’t fish out of the bottom of the bowl also somehow make it to that hidden spot on the top shelf, and the rest goes into a Ziploc for Daddy to take to work tomorrow.

Then those last few remaining Three Musketeers or Hershey Bars…  they get parsed out one per day for the next week or so because you are paying the dentist and doctor bills now, and you don’t want your kids to develop your nasty candy-hoarding habit that you have clearly due to the negligence and poor parenting skills of your mom and dad.

But if you hoard some candy to make this dip for your kids, that is totally acceptable.  I used chocolate chips and M&M’s to keep it true to the classic (or at least what I think is the classic) Monster Cookie, like this one from RecipeGirl.  But really, you can use anything that you pick out of your kids’ candy bags, and chop it into little pieces.

Also totally OK – eating Monster Cookie Dough Dip for lunch…  you did see the secret ingredient, right?  Scroll down, check it out.  I’ll wait.  Yup, that plus peanut butter and oats.  I mean, health food, right…  except for the candy you snitched.  But, you know, it’s Halloween.  At least eating it in little bits with apples or graham crackers or pretzels or these super delicious Chocolate Tortilla Chips that I found is better than downing a handful of Fun Size bars all at once…

Not that I know anything about that…

{flourless} Monster Cookie Dough Dip
Loaded with peanut butter, chocolate chips and M&M’s, like the classic cookie, this dip is actually flourless and eggless because of a secret ingredient!
Recipe type: Dessert, Snack, Dip
  • One 15 oz. can chickpeas, rinsed, drained, and dried on a paper towel
  • ¼ c (half a stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ c peanut butter
  • ½ c brown sugar
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • ¼ t salt
  • ½ c semisweet chocolate chips
  • ½ c old fashioned oats
  • Two single serving (1.69 oz.) bags or about ½ c M&M’s
  • Pretzels, cinnamon sugar or chocolate tortilla chips, graham crackers, fruit, etc. for serving
  1. Place the chickpeas, butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, vanilla, and salt into a food processor, and process until smooth. You may need to scrape with a spatula or break up clumps of brown sugar once or twice in order to get it completely smooth.
  2. Scoop the mixture into a bowl, add the oats and chocolate chips, and mix in completely.
  3. Add the M&M’s and stir briefly to combine (see Note).
  4. Serve with pretzels, cinnamon sugar or chocolate tortilla chips, graham crackers, fruit, etc. for dipping or spreading.
Once you’ve added the M&M’s, be careful not to overstir, or the colors will run and get all smeary. If you want to have those bright pops of color, reserve a few M&M’s and press them into the top of the dip just before serving.

Dip can be stored for several days in the fridge, but the oats will soften a bit and the dip will firm up, so you may want to serve with a knife for spreading.

    I am giggling over your candy routine on Halloween. Genius way to make sure you have your special candy stash. And what a way to sneak in a healthy thing like chickpeas! No one will ever know. So great!

  2. says

    Oh, I just KNEW the secret ingredient would be chickpeas :) I must say, I’ve been a little leery of these cookie dips with beans in them. I think because if I made it myself, I would KNOW, and I couldn’t trick myself.

    But what the hell? I made brownies with BEETS in them this week! What am I so scared of? hahaha.
