Don’t waste money going to the store to buy something prepared the next time you are asked to bring something to a party, make your own dip for under $10 and yours be the star of the party! Pair this dip baked broccoli and parmesan dip with crackers or with a sliced crusty baguette.

I always like to make homemade dips when going to parties because they always taste better. And don’t let anyone fool you, it’s easy to make your own. It just takes a little bit of time. Plus, they are so much less expensive. This dip is great not only for parties but also if you are hosting a dinner party or gathering. But be prepared, everyone will want the recipe!
