You know when you meet a new friend and you instantly know that they are going to be bad for you?
Yeah, it was like that with Amber and me.
We met at a vendor fair recently where I was selling It Works products and Amber had a delicious spread of Homemade Gourmet goodies. We became friends when I kept coming back to her table to “sample” her dips and she didn’t shoo me away.
She’s really nice since I would have shooed me away.
Amber taught me a very important truth that day: The spice dip, when served with Ginger Snaps, will totally blow your mind.
And I don’t even like Ginger Snaps!
Of course, the Amazing Amaretto cheesecake isn’t too bad either.
Anybody want some Cheddar Bay biscuits a lá Red Lobster?
Amber is so awesome that she even adapted all of the recipes to be Weight Watchers-friendly!!! And I bet if you promise to love her forever, she will share those tricks with you!
I will give you a hint: 1/4 C of the spice dip adapted to the weight-watchers friendly version is only 1 point. ONE!!! And? You can freeze it and eat it like ice cream! People? One point ice cream? Are you kidding me?!?!
As if Amber wasn’t awesome enough, she graciously offered to give my lovely readers $25 in free food!!
Be sure to go here and check out all of the yummy stuff on Amber’s website.
And, if you’re worried about not being able to cook or not having enough time to cook or whatever other excuse you’re coming up with right now, I’ve included a step-by-step tutorial to show you how easy it is to make Spice Dip!
Step 1: Buy the Cool Whip. Or the cheaper store-brand like I did!
Step 2: Dump the spice dip mix into the Cool Whip.
Step 3: Stir them together.
Step 4: Sample the dip using your finger.
Step 5: Sample the dip using a Vanilla Wafer and realize that Ginger Snaps are totally the way to go with this dip.
Step 6: Continue to eat the spice dip and ginger snaps until your heart is content!

P.S. I bought a box of spice dip with my own (semi)hard-earned money. Amber didn’t give me a damn thing for free for this review/giveaway! The nerve of some people! Although, she did let me stand at her table at the vendor fair and eat about half of the goodies she brought along so I guess that counts for something.
