Neiman Marcus Dip



I’ve been watching  this Neiman Marcus Dip explode on Pinterest and Facebook for a while.  I finally took the opportunity to make and and now I know what all the hype is about.  This stuff is seriously good, a little addictive even.  The good thing is it’s easy to make so you probably want to double the recipe to make sure you have enough.
