Cauldron Dip

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.

    This is great! I first made it for an office Halloween afternoon snack. I'm making it again for this year's home party. I actually used a whole rye loaf and cut out the center. Then inserted a glass bowl of the same dimensions. I also dyed the dip green for an added touch.
