Really, have truer words ever been uttered? A cheesy, creamy or spicy dip is a welcome crowd-pleaser on an appetizer tray. So might we suggest bookending your next party with an equally delightful dish? That's right: Dip is for dessert now (and frankly, it's easier to make than whipping up a cake, a pie or even cookies).
