Would you consider yourself a stylish person? I am the worst at being stylish. It’s a chore for me, really. Also, I have no clue what I’m doing. Put it this way: if you see me and I’m wearing a necklace, consider yourself lucky. I got dressed up for you!

(BTW, you could also substitute “lipstick” and “brushed hair” for necklace in that last sentence. Seriously, I work at home all day. If I get out of my yoga pants it’s a small miracle.)

I find that my difficulty accessorizing my outfit bleeds over into other areas of my life. I’m also not good at decorating my house (a throw pillow counts as decoration, right?) and I’m really not good at accessorizing my food photos. Have you ever noticed how I have the same dishes in all my photos? Or the same napkins? Or how I get rightupclosetothefood so you don’t see much around it?

I just don’t know how to accessorize. I don’t even know how to think about adding props into my photos. It just doesn’t even really occur to me…until I look at the pictures after. This reason, my inability to prop, is one of the reasons I’m loving my new countertops. I feel like they’re so pretty I don’t even need to do anything besides drop the food and shoot!

If you read my kitchen reveal post, you will have seen my new counters. They’re white and look like marble, and they’re beautiful. Also? They’re not marble. They’re durable quartz! I can go from prepping my recipes to shooting my recipes and I don’t even have to do any setting up of any special boards or surfaces.

Pretty much, to me, that’s perfection. Because I probably wouldn’t to do it anyway!

When we were trying to find the perfect countertops for our new kitchen, I knew I wanted quartz because it’s durable, a solid surface, and it’s gorgeous. When my designer showed me the DuPont Zodiaq quartz surfaces, I fell in love. I didn’t even have to see a sample of the Coarse Carrara to know it was what I was going to choose.

Zodiaq quartz is a engineered with pure quartz crystals. It’s long-lasting, GREENGUARD Certified®, and it’s heat and scratch resistant. And did I mention how pretty it is? We love our counters – I think it’s one of my favorite parts of the whole kitchen. If you’re thinking of doing a remodel, check out the DuPont Zodiaq quartz surfaces – you’ll love them!

Also? You’ll love this dip. It’s a Skinny Candy Dip, filled with chopped leftover Halloween candy. And it only has 3 ingredients!

Easy 3 ingredient Skinny Candy Dip Recipe

Sometimes, when Jordan has friends over, I want to make a treat that will keep my reputation of the “Mom that gives us dessert!” going but I also want to serve something that the parents won’t hate me for (too much). Dips are the perfect thing to serve for this reason – they’re fast, easy, and they feed a crowd. Bonus points if you can dip apple slices in it!

While many of the sweet dips I make aren’t healthy (like brownie batter, peanut butter, and Snickers), this one is a little bit healthier. And it only has 3 ingredients, one of which you can totally omit…if you want. Ready for it?

Greek yogurt, caramel sauce, and candy. Stir. Eat.

That’s it!

This recipe is the perfect one to use up extra Halloween candy. Make it for Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Year’s. Make it for a football party or an after school play date. Heck, make it for a random Tuesday snack!

We dipped pretzels and apple slices. And by that, I mean I ate it with a spoon.

This easy Skinny Candy Dip has only 3 ingredients! It's a fast and easy recipe that's the perfect party dip!

A few recipe notes:

I used nonfat vanilla greek yogurt. You can use regular vanilla yogurt (that’s not greek) if you prefer. You can also use plain yogurt, but then you might want to add more caramel topping for sweetness.

Speaking of caramel topping, you can totally leave it out if you don’t want it there, but I love adding it for a touch of extra flavor. You can use any caramel sauce you have – homemade or ice cream topping, even sugar-free.

Use any chopped candy you have! Raid the Halloween stash! I used Milky Way, 3 Musketeers, and Snickers because it was what I had. This would also be good with peanut butter cups or Kit Kats.

Any way you make this, it’s the perfect easy sweet dip for any day! Enjoy!

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Okay, here’s the thing: I have the shoes and clothing down pat. Like, I love both and I think I do a pretty good job. But hair and makeup? Ick. I barely wear makeup, and my hair is curly, so it’s always just wild. And accessories are sporadic. But I feel the same way about my photo shoots. I forget to accessorize or, ahem, “style” them. It’s bad.
    Unlike this dip, which is good. Jordan and her friends must be super grateful!

  2. Wow does this dip look good, Dorothy! I can’t believe this is only 3 ingredients! I love the yogurt base. Sounds so delicious to dig into for dessert (or just whenever)!

  3. I’m in the same boat – I’m not very good at accessorizing and folks are lucky if I wear a necklace or change my earrings. 🙂 Love this simple, no-fuss dip!

  4. This dip looks gorgeous and it’s lovely how it is a bit healthier than the traditional versions. Perfect for Halloween, pinned!

  5. Anything with ‘candy’ and ‘skinny’ in it has my vote- delicious!

  6. “I can go from prepping my recipes to shooting my recipes and I don’t even have to do any setting up….” <— Totally jealous! I can see how great the light is too right where you're cooking/prepping so you don't even have to walk across the room either! That is awesome!

    And a skinny dip is perfect!

  7. SUCH a GREAT idea for leftover Halloween candy!! IF I have any 😉 I’m totally making this dip! Also, I am 100% completely unable to style/decorate/coordinate anything having to do with clothing, accessories, makeup, hair, or home. I’m a wannabe DIY’er who ends up with items that look like a 3 year old made them. Sad face! 

  8. What a great idea for a dip! I am the least stylish person I know…I rely on sneakers, jeans, khakis and comfortable pants most of the time. No makeup (allergic), but I’m ok with it. 

  9. You always look great; just flash that smile and no one will care if you have lipstick or a necklace on. And the dip looks great too!
    xoxo

  10. I’m not great at decorating, either.  That’s why we bought a model home – already done!  Hey, this dip looks soooo good!

  11. Ok I am in the same boat. I can barely accessorize myself let alone my house! I am trying to style my photos better but it is really hard to think outside of the box! I love your counter tops and how bright it makes your kitchen! Also love this dip and would totally just use a spoon to eat it 😉

  12. I have zero portion control skills so I love that this is made skinny! I think I’ll try mine with twix nomnom

  13. I love this skinnified dessert! 

  14. I love this dip – anything to move out the leftover Halloween candy!  And your kitchen?  Oh my gosh, Dorothy.  GORGEOUS.  Enjoy every second of it!

  15. What an easy recipe! And everything is in the cupboard already. Yum!

  16. I could eat this dip with a spoon. So glad it’s skinny.

  17. A skinny dip filled with candy?! This is perfect, Dorothy!

  18. well you have me beat in the stylish category – I don’t even have the chunky necklace to put on, I need a stylist and a home decorator, and this dip!! and I LOVE your counters

  19. Your uncluttered close-up food photos put the emphasis on the food (always a good thing, I think, for a food blog 😉 ) I bet Jordan and her friends love after-school snack at your house! Dessert dips are fun and this one would be quick and easy to prepare. Bring on the left over Halloween candy!

  20. I love that you healthified this dip!! But I would eat soo much of it 😀 Good thing it is healthier then 😉

  21. I wouldn’t call my self stylish, but I do adore shopping and putting together outfits!!!! Although most days I’m still in my workout clothes until the afternoon…LOL!  I love easy dips like these that use yogurt.  And hello, candy toppings are the best!!! And that counter top…I need that in our new house for sure!!  Love it!!

  22. 1-LOVE the quartz countertops!
    2-ummm I think I’m bad at accessorizing things too! I usually just like to wear big earrings, nothing more than that. I have the hardest time with the photography props and I have a hard time decorating the house, too!
    3-YUM YUM YUMMY YUM! love this dip!

  23. I love this skinnified dessert! Thanks for sharing!
