These are my four favourite dips, and all sooo yummy! People always love them. All three are quite different - one 'normal', one hot (but can be served cold), and two sweet.
Here they are:
1/3 cup caster sugar
˝ cup cream
250g marscapone cream cheese
6 T passionfruit pulp
Beat cream and sugar until thick. Add marscapone and whip until smooth. Stir in passionfruit pulp. Spoon into a large glass serving dish. Chill before serving. Serve with fresh fruit.
125gm cream cheese
1 Tab castor sugar
60gm chopped dark chocolate
1/2 cup hazelnuts, coarsley chopped
1/2 cup whipped cream
1 Tab drinking chocolate
Mix ingredients together and serve with fruit (I always just do apple segments). This can be made ahead and frozen too. Just pull it out the morning of and let defrost in the fridge.
Sauté some garlic, chilli (both from a bottle) and 1 to 2 chopped shallots in some butter...about a dessert spoon of butter.
Cook until the shallot is a bit soft but is still green. Then, remove it all from the heat and stir in a container of sour cream, grated cheese (at least a cup.....you decide how much) and some salt (I find the salt brings out the flavour in the dip and gives it a bit of a bite - the salt is a personal taste). Stir it all over a low heat until the cheese is melted.
I serve it with homemade pita chips or corn chips.
1 pack philly cream cheese
1 210g (I think is the size) can red salmon with about half of the juice from the tin - I find homebrand is best
Combine all ingredients until really well mixed (can use mixer). Serve with sticks of celery, carrot etc and/or corn chips.
And there is always the ever favourite mexican dip which is the layers of refried beans, sour cream, diced tomato, olives, salsa, spring onions etc. With corn chips of course!
