Time to walk down memory lane! Oatmeal Cream Pie dip is a modern twist on a lunchbox favorite that you will not want to trade no matter what!!
I think everyone growing up in America ate Little Debbie Snack Cakes. Swiss Rolls are my all time favorite and I even have a certain way to eat them, but Oatmeal Cream Pies are high up on the list too. As an adult, I still eat snack cakes but lately, I am in the mood to modernize them so I whipped up an Oatmeal Cream Pie Dip for a little fun!
Last February I changed up another beloved snack cake, the Star Crunch. Those crispy, chocolatey, caramelly, chewy cakes were shrunk down and dipped in even more chocolate to become Star Crunch Truffle Balls. I am still full from eating all of those truffles!!
A bowl full of the filling that you love while still having the oatmeal and cinnamon flavors, count me in!! While trying to find a way to get all the flavors to shine individually, I didn’t want to just serve the oatmeal cream pie dip with oatmeal cookies. It seemed clunky to me so I thought of ways of getting the oatmeal actually in the dip.
Toasting some old-fashioned oats in butter and cinnamon fills my home with some wonderful smells but the addition of the toasted oats to the creamy dip just rounds out all the flavors. It is just like eating an Oatmeal Cream Pie, only better!!
Once you get the dip made you need to get it into your mouth. You could use a spoon, or your finger, or just put your face right in the bowl and eat it with reckless abandon.
But if you are feeling more civilized, try using cinnamon sticks to shovel it in your mouth. They are a lot like graham crackers but a little skinnier so you can savor the dip a little longer and leave some for the others. Or not. We will keep it between us if you like.
