Thanksgiving YUM FUN:
For a Thanksgiving twist place the dip into a small bowl. Use either chocolate chips or raisins to serve as eyes on the dip & cut a small piece of apple to serve as a turkey beak. Place the cinnamon covered apples around the dip bowl, on a larger plate to serve as turkey feathers alternating the colors of the apples.
WOWButter® is a peanut free, tree nut free, gluten free peanut butter alternative that can be located in the allergy friendly aisle in your Price Chopper and Market 32 Supermarkets.
