While dips are usually a unanimous crowd favorite, everyone has a particular way they’d like dip served to them. Here are some expert dip tips to keep your guests coming back for more:
- Don’t let those hot dips go cold, unless you’d like some complaints from your guests. This is where having a slow cooker comes in handy. Keep your dip in the slow cooker and on the warm setting, stirring occasionally, so guests can serve themselves a warm scoop of dip at any time.
- Some guests prefer their dips with vegetables, some like salty snacks like crackers, chips or pretzels. The more options, the better! Set out bowls of various salty snacks and assemble a veggie tray with items like carrots, celery and bell peppers so guests can pick and choose their dipping vessels. If you’re serving a sweet dip, set out bowls of fruit like strawberries and bananas and various cookies like vanilla wafers, graham crackers or chocolate chip cookies.
- Many dips can be made ahead of time! Check the recipe instructions. Many of our no-bake dips can be stored covered in the refrigerator. Make one in the morning so your hungry guests have something to snack on the moment they arrive at your party.
