Everybody’s favorite part of making cookies is getting to snack on the dough. It’s so good I decided that it should be the main event, not just a background character. My Edible White Chocolate Sugar Cookie dough is made with JUSTIN’S® Vanilla Almond Butter and is great for when you want to eat a guilt-free treat.

Nothing says “Party” like a great dip. When it comes to this dip, I like to keep the guest list for the party down to just one. Sweet Potato-Almond Hummus combines sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and JUSTIN’S® Classic Almond Butter to create a hummus like you have never tried. Did I mention it is vegan? Happy snacking.
