dip recipe tips

It’s not unusual for the dip to be the first thing that’s sampled at a party. To make the best first impression, follow our tips for dip recipes when you’re mixing your ingredients. Smooth, creamy, cheesy hot dips are minutes away when you try one of our VELVEETA dip recipes. Our dip recipe tips apply to all of them and to any of our spread recipes you can choose from. Not all of our dip recipes include cheese, so inviting a cheese ball to join the party is always a good idea.

Dip recipe tips for parties

  • Can’t decide how much to make? Our appetizer math chart can point you in the right direction.
  • OSCAR MAYER Bacon, Cheddar cheese and sour cream are the perfect base ingredients for this creamy, hearty dip. And as a bonus, this version of our Bacon-Cheddar Dip allows you to stick to your smart eating plan.
  • Many recipes, such as Pesto & Roasted Red Pepper Dip, can easily be doubled to feed a crowd.
  • PHILLY Shrimp Cocktail Dip takes the classic combination of shrimp and cocktail sauce, and makes it even better with the addition of a few simple ingredients, such as PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese and KRAFT Shredded Parmesan Cheese. It's sure to be a hit at your next party.
  • Grocery bills can add up fast when you’re planning a party. Check out our grocery tips for saving money for ideas to help keep costs down.
  • To help you “keep your cool” on party day, prepare some recipes ahead of time. Our Sun-Dried Tomato & Garlic Dip actually improves with the refrigerating time.
  • Serve our Parmesan Confetti Dip in a hollowed-out bell pepper for an easy, impressive - and edible - container.

Dip recipes on the go

  • Our Guacamole travels like a champ. Store in a covered plastic container with a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the dip to prevent it from turning brown.
  • Safety first! Store cold dips in the refrigerator until it's time to go, then transport them safely in an insulated cooler packed with ice.
  • Some brands of glass baking dishes come with tight-fitting lids. Assemble a layered dip in one of these dishes, then simply remove the lid when you get to the party!
  • Transport creamy dips or spreads and veggie dippers separately in resealable plastic bags. Transfer to serving bowls or platters just before serving.

Veggies for dip recipes

  • Veggie platters make an appearance at most parties. Try assembling your own, so you can choose the vegetables that best suit your dip. For instance, blanched French green beans taste great with our Cool & Creamy Vegetable Dip.
  • Cutting vegetables or fruit into bite-size pieces can help discourage double dipping.

Sweet dip recipes

  • Don’t let the vegetables get all the love - fruit platters can be a fun alternative! Try strawberries, pineapple chunks, grapes, or other fresh fruit in season. Pair with COOL WHIP Fruit Dip for a sweet finish.
