Your guests are in for a sweet surprise when they try this unusual cheese ball…it tastes just like cookie dough! Rolled in chopped pecans, the chip-studded spread is wonderful on regular or chocolate graham crackers. I especially like it because it can be assembled in a wink. —Kelly Glascock, Syracuse, Missouri
No one will ever suspect that this creamy party classic is lower in fat than the much loved original. The combination of artichoke hearts, spinach and Parmesan cheese gives it great flavor.

This quick taco dip from Rhonda Biancardi of Blaine, Minnesota is a definite family favorite. In fact, she says, “This recipe has been made more times than I can count! It just looks very colorful to a table, and it never lasts long.
This appetizer is more creative than a veggie platter and healthier than chips and dip. I often make it for my family to snack on, and it's a great recipe for the kids to help with. —Christine Mitchell, Glendora, California
Because I feed three hungry "men" (my husband, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and our two little boys), I love satisfying snacks that are easy to make like this dip. I modified a friend's recipe. We sure appreciate this cool light treat in the summertime.

For tasty make-ahead dip try this recipe. It goes fast at office parties or any gathering. Mildly spicy, it's easy to alter if you want it to have more of a kick. Make sure your corn chips are large enough to scoop up a hearty helping.
