Cook and Craft

Happy Monday!!!
Today is "Cook and Craft" day on the My Creative Time blog. I normally craft on the weekend and usually in the afternoons, so I need something quick and easy for lunch. The recipe that I am sharing today is one that my mom always made on Sunday afternoons, after church, while watching whatever sport was on tv. She would also make it for all the family/friend b-day parties/get together's and it was always a hit.
This is not the healthiest dip, but it sure is yummy and super easy to make.  All the ingredients are layered and then cooked until warm and bubbly!

The first picture is when it's ready for the oven and the second is what it looks like after it has cooked for 15-20 minutes.
So yummy!
You can get a copy of the recipe here.
A super sweet friend gifted me a few of these darling little tins. I thought it would be fun to use them to make some Easter treats for the kids on Easter Sunday. I filled them with some green paper grass and M & M's and then used some of the new MCT dies and stamps to dress them up a bit.
