Yum! Here are some more dip recipes: Superbowl Recipes & Snacks. For a quick & easy fruit dip, try a 50/50 mix of whipped cream and vanilla or flavored yogurt, or vanilla pudding. I also have a big list of fruit dip recipes here.

1 1/2 cups sour cream (*edit: The latest copy I have states 2 cups)

Edible Container Ideas:

Picture of Bread Bowl & Dip - Tipnut.comBell Peppers: Red, Green and Yellow. Wash and prepare peppers as you would if you were stuffing them. Cut out the top and remove seeds from inside. Fill with your favorite dip, cover with top until ready to serve.

Broccoli: Cut the stem evenly with the bottom so broccoli will sit flat and sturdy. Wash broccoli thoroughly, then at the top center, cut out a hole large enough and deep enough to hold a small dish to be inserted for dip.

Cauliflower: Prepare the same way as broccoli

Round Bread Bowls: Sourdough, Round Rye, Pumpernickel. Take the bread and cut the top 2″ off (approx). For the bottom part of bread, cut a 1″ margin of bread around the inside wall and remove the bread from the middle, leaving a bowl shape. With the removed hollowed out bread, cut into large 1″ cubes. Fill bread bowl with dip and arrange the cubes around the bowl to serve with the dip.
