A treat is an occasional thing that just makes life a little more pleasant and the gratification is immense with just a small amount.  The likes of having a piece of quality chocolate or your favorite latte.

Well honey and I both had a good memory moment from our past with the dip idea.. I said I bet I could make that which of course I did. This recipe comes in with stellar results and hardly any of the fat /calories that the typical dip used. We also invested in a high quality natural chip, cause if you are going to indulge don’t get second rate is my answer. Here goes.
