Help I can’t find mini pepperoni-
No worries! Mini pepperoni is perfect for this dip because it is small and scoops out well. However if you can’t find it you can easily swap it for regular sized pepperoni. You’ll just want to chop the pepperoni so that you have smaller pieces. I like to cut it into fourths for the perfect size. You can also do this if you prefer turkey pepperoni because they don’t make it in the mini size!
