Party time? Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip is a favorite appetizer at most restaurants because people love it. I’m always game for anything with artichokes and cheese and this stuff is yummy! It’s usually gone pretty quickly, but if by chance you have leftovers, there’s lots of great ways to use it up, but then that’s a whole post all by itself. It doubles and triples well for large crowds and parties and that’s just what we did this past weekend.
We live in a great neighborhood. Saturday we came together to celebrate the temple marriage of this beautiful couple, Tiara and Blake. We have watched Tiara grow up. Her parents, some of the people who make our neighborhood what it is, were so happy.
Isn’t this such a fabulous cake? I loved the pleated fondant, beautiful brown roses, and color contrast.
Two more wonderful neighbors, Caryn and Lori organized and made much of the food. They made so many luscious cookies, bars, tarts and these caramel chocolate pretzel sticks! Petite chocolate cups filled with chocolate mousse and topped with sliced almonds, pumpkin cake rolls, lemon-cream tarts, creme brulee cheesecake bars, and my personal favorite, truffles with an “S” for Tiara and Blake’s last name. It was all beautifully done with lots of love.
Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip
Under their direction, I made Cheese Spinach Artichoke Dip for 100! It’s as easy to make this dip for 100 people as it is for 35, just triple the recipe. Stir the mayo, sour cream and cheeses until well blended. Thaw and squeeze the water out of the spinach and add it. Add the quartered artichoke hearts.
I like to make mine in a pretty casserole dish, or if you are making it for a big party, spread the mixture into six large pie plates. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes until the surface is golden brown.
Top the hot dip with a fresh garnish of chopped tomatoes and green onion. Serve warm or at room temperature with tortilla chips, veggies or crackers and enjoy.
