My 5 Favorite New Year’s Eve Party Dips {and printable}

Classic Spinach Dip
I can’t resist this classic spinach dip. I love it served inside a Pumpernickle loaf of bread. Yum! I always make it with “light” versions of the Mayonnaise and Sour Cream. And if you want to mix things up, you can substitute marinated artichoke hearts for the water chestnuts.
Italian 7 Layer Dip 
7-layer Dip, Italian style
Seven Layer Dip is always a crowd pleaser. But how about an Italian Twist? Add basil and Italian cheese and serve on Crostini for a different take on a classic. Grab the recipe at Ms. Adventures in Italy!

 Spinach & Artichoke Dip

 Have you ever tried Costco’s Artichoke and Jalapeno Dip?? It is pure deliciousness. And so easy to make. Just pop a dish of it in the oven or microwave and you are ready for a party. But if you want to make something equally as good, The Pioneer Woman has made an amazing Hot Olive and Artichoke Dip that is heavenly.

Buffalo Chicken Dip

This tangy, creamy dip tastes just like buffalo chicken wings. I love those!! It’s best served hot with crackers and celery sticks. Get the recipe for Buffalo Chicken Dip at TidyMom!

Tangy Queso

Here’s a quick and recipe that is just like Chili’s Queso Dip from Just Simply Cook!

    We have a family dip that is a must at every get together…I've eaten it my whole life so it's not strange to me, but all of my friends that try it think it's very different…everyone always loves it though!

    It's a cold cheese dip and is served with apples,veggies, and french bread.

    Here's a link on how to make it:


  10. Jen, my all-time favorite dip is SUPER easy & great with either raw veggies or chips. I like it with Tostitos – the really little ones! Here's the recipe: 1 can of original Rotel tomatoes, 1 8-oz. block of cream cheese (Philly works best) and (optional) a dash of salt & a dash of cayenne pepper. Put the tomatoes in your blender first, then the seasoning, THEN the cream cheese. Blend till it's a creamy texture & a pretty pink color! YUM, YUM. I ALWAYS have to make a double recipe! HUGS, AND HAPPY NEW YEAR! And THANK YOU SO MUCH for your wonderful, fun blog! Kai

  12. Oh, where were you on Christmas eve! Crab dip is a pretty popular one around here, though it does get expensive – sometimes we're worth it.

  13. jennykate77 says:

  22. The Cottage Mama says:
