Can I just take a moment to gush about how much I love my kid?

Because it’s a ridiculous amount. I just want all of our future kids to be little clones of her!

Not that she has any intentions of our family growing. Any time we ask her, “do you want a baby sister?” she points to a baby picture of herself and says, “baby sister right there!”

So we’ll say, “but do you want another baby sister?”

“No thanks.”

“How about a baby brother?”

“No thanks.”

“A puppy?”

“Oh! Okay!”

She also doesn’t seem to have any intention of growing herself. This weekend, as she ate her way into oblivion, someone suggested our little tot might be growing! And then she had the most ridiculous 3-year-old meltdown I’ve ever seen…

“I am not growing!! I’m not!”

“No growing!!!!”

“No! No! I can’t grow!!!”

*full on weeping and sobs at this point*

“Mom! I can’t grow! I’m not groooooowwwwwiing!!!!”

Has anyone else ever had this happen?! I managed to bring her back down to planet earth with some rocking and snuggles, and promises that she would never grow up and always be my baby.

Meh… she should figure things out in about 20 years or so. No need to burst her bubble now.

I have a feeling this brownie batter dip would have probably calmed her right now about as effectively as anything else I did. But… you know… it’s always a little risky to combine sugar with that much emotion.

So I just ate it all myself! #parentingwin

Peanut Butter Cup Brownie Batter Dip


  • 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 c. peanut butter butter
  • 2 c. powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2-3 tbsp. milk
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 8 ounces Reese's Minis (the already unwrapped bites)


  1. In a stand mixer, beat together the cream cheese and the butter until smooth.
  2. Beat in the brown sugar.
  3. Add the cocoa powder, flour, vanilla, salt, and 1 tbsp milk. Mix until smooth.
  4. Add the powdered sugar and another tablespoon of milk. Beat until smooth. Add another tablespoon of milk if the dip is to thick for your liking, but I usually stop at 2 tablespoons.
  5. Mix in the Reese's Mini pieces. Serve with apple, pretzel, or graham cracker dippers (or anything else!).
  6. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator until serving. Serves 8-12

Don’t miss a bite!

  4. This looks incredible. Brownie batter AND peanut butter? Winner in my book!

    I specifically remember having a mental breakdown the night before my 5th birthday because I didn’t want to grow up! Apparently something major was going to change while I slept or something. My mom told me I would still be the same when I was five and I guess she got me to believe her. Peanut butter brownie dip would have alayed my fears for sure!

  18. Cute story! When we told my then 5 year old daughter that we were going to have an addition to our family, her response was “are we getting a kitty?” Her disappointed waned as she got to know her little brother! Loved your story!

  19. The instructions to cream the butter. Did you mean the peanut butter, or is there just utter in these and not peanut butter?
