I’m all about the sweeter side of dips, and this brownie batter one pretty much fits in with my life’s philosophy: Chocolate makes anything better. Grab some fruit, cookies or salty snacks and start dunking. —Mel Gunnell, Boise, Idaho
Plain microwave popcorn becomes irresistible when it's yummied up with molasses, peanut butter and nuts. “This awesome snack never lasts long around our house,” Jacque Castillo, Brookings, Oregon, notes.
This witch's cauldron doesn't hold a spooky brew--just a Halloween snack that's frightfully fun! Our Test Kitchen formed a pot by toasting a slice of rye bread, then filled it with a creamy dip that's perfect with the pretzel "logs" and sweet pepper "flames" that are placed underneath.
The pleasant sweetness of this crisp, munchable mixture will surprise you. "I've taken it to my children's schools for parties or as a special treat," writes Donna Scully of Newark, Delaware. "I've also packaged it in bow-topped tins for special gifts."
Kids and adults will all love this uniquqe way to prepare chicken. The coconut coating provides a crunch and the dip has a tropical flair. Using a food processor makes it easy to chop the cashews.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen
