Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! Wow! This was an AWESOME dip! I'd been waiting for a long time to have the chance to make it for a party and finally got to this weekend for a friend's baby shower. I have 2 recommendation on it, 1) Be sure to chop up the basil well before mixing it in w/the cream cheese, would have made mixing it quicker, 2)I purchased chopped olives to omit that one step. I had no problem lining the container w/plastic wrap after I wiped it out and made sure to give it a few taps on the counter after all of it was in the mold. If you're worried it won't have enough flavor be sure to taste it before you put it all in the mold. Since it was for a baby shower I also cut out 2 little hearts instead of a star for the garnish. Definately will make it again! Friends were asking for the recipe :)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was quick and easy to make. This was quick and easy to make. I recommend making it a day ahead to improve the flavor. The only problem I had was lining the mold with wrap. When I put the spread in, the wrap didn’t keep the shape of the mold. Next time I’ll spray the mold with cooking spray before lining it. Enjoy!
