Easy Holiday Party Dips & Spreads
Spinach-artichoke dip is always a party favorite. We love this recipe for its creamy texture and wonderful flavors from artichoke hearts, lemon juice and a mix of Parmesan and pepper Jack cheese.

Party Tip: Place the Brie directly on an oven-safe serving plate, and bake as directed. The hot plate will keep the cheese warm and gooey longer.

You can transform the leftovers from this appetizer into crostini by topping toasted French bread rounds with this creamy spread and a sprinkle of finely diced apples and toasted pecans.
This cheese dip is made heartier by the addition of chopped cooked chicken. Chopped chipotle peppers, jalapeños, and chili powder add even more heat. Prepare up to a day ahead; cover and chill in an airtight container, and bake just before serving.
- Recipe: Colby-Pepper Jack Cheese Dip
This herb-and-walnut cheese spread is ideal for large gatherings. Pear preserves balance the tanginess of the Roquefort cheese, and toasted pecans and walnuts add nutty flavor.
Make this appetizer your go-to crowd pleaser. Charmingly retro, the cheese ring is dressed up with sweet strawberry preserves that pair perfectly with the sharp Cheddar cheese.
