Crunchy Pickle Dip

Okay, we know we say this all the time, but it’s true: this dip is very legitimately addictive. As long as you know ahead of time that you’re going to have to give up all self-control while in its presence, you’re good to go. So what is it that’s got us so worked up this time, you ask? Pickle dip. It might sound weird at first, but hear us out: this snack is perfectly tangy, perfectly creamy and perfectly crunchy. It’s great for game night, movie night, or for if you’re just spending the night vegetating on the couch. It can do no wrong and you need to try it ASAP.

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 1/2 cups dill pickles, finely chopped
