A wonderful mom from my school gave me this recipe years ago. When I lost it, I called her up and asked her for it again. She laughed and supplied it immediately. I tell kids these are chocolate chip muffins and never mention the bran and oatmeal. It makes a huge batch be prepared. It is supposed to last in the refrigerator for at least 6 weeks - but I always go through it faster than that.
One of my close friends introduced me to this fabulous dip. I added the optional ingredients, but it was first Lilly's recipe.
This is also considered by my sister to be one giant heart attack waiting to happen, but well worth it. Serve with tortilla chips and be prepared to take home an empty bowl. Enjoy!
