In the middle of May Beau and I flew back to my hometown in Connecticut and visited my parents and attended a friend's gorgeous wedding.
And thanks to Katie over at "Chocolate Covered Katie" I was able to make my parents this deeelicious chocolate chip cookie dough dip. I tweaked Katie's recipe for (No Sugar) Cookie Dough Dip to ensure that it was as sugar free as possible.
Now that's what I call eye candy.
I followed Katie's recipe, but changed a few ingredients: I used 2 packets of stevia and about 1/8 cup agave for my sweetener (instead of dates), 3 tablespoons of flax meal, and chopped up some 75% Chocolate Lindt squares in place of chocolate chips. (These squares actually have more protein and fiber, but less sugar so the carb ratio is really good for those who need to moderate their sugar levels).
Mom and Dad, who often don't get to enjoy sweets, loved it! :)
And lastly, here are a few pics of our visit home!
Alfie, their new doggie they got at The Hotel for Dogs and Cats where I used to volunteer back in Florida. (See my other post related to the hotel). Alfie is such a sweetheart. He is officially their third child. He goes everywhere with them hehe.
We went hiking in Bigelow Hollow and Alfie had a blast! Not to mention I forgot how beautiful New England is in late spring...
And last but not least a picture of the gorgeous newlyweds.
(And me with our friends Heather and Chris's baby- Nate! Such an adorable baby!)
