DIPPERS – A Bagley Family Favorite!


I bet you thought this post was going to be about skinny dipping, didn’t you??! Don’t worry, we keep things rated “G” around here, and we’re not going to be talking about skinny dipping today! We’re talking about DIPPERS – a delicious fall treat! Oh, you’ve never heard of Dippers before?? Well, let me enlighten you on one of the best treats of all time.


Just a quick back story for you… A long time ago, a cute little couple got married. Their names were Jerry and Patsy Bagley. They were a perfect match, and a happy couple. The very first meal that Patsy made for Jerry after they got married was…Dippers! Patsy created this recipe on a whim and it has since become a Bagley family favorite treat. It’s easy, and soooo yummy. Here’s how you make it:



-Toast 2 slices of bread in the toaster

-Turn it into a peanut butter and honey sandwich

-Cut it into 4 strips

-Dip it into a cup of hot chocolate and enjoy!


Here’s a demonstration:

Dip your dipper into the hot chocolate

Don’t let it drip!

Take a huge bite! Yum!


Don’t knock it till you try it! I guarantee you will be pleasantly surprised at how delicious Dippers are!
