Which Super Bowl snack dips to prepare is a big decision for me. Do I go with a cream cheese or mayonnaise-based snack dip? Hot or cold? Do I pretend I am adding a healthy component and choose a dip that is served with raw vegetables? I went back through TheRoomMom files and photos to help me decide. I think I am going to make the hot artichoke dip because it is a favorite from childhood. The appetizer will need something on the side– The Big Sandwich perhaps?

P.S. I had to look up the spelling of Super Bowl. I was not sure if it should be one word or two. Is that confusing for anybody else?
5 Hot Party Dips
If you are not adding a lot of cheese to your hot dip recipe and baking it into a melty bite, is it even worth making? All the hot snack dip ideas below use cheese as a key ingredient. I find freshly grated parmesan and sharp cheddar to be essential football watching dip ingredients. Cream cheese is always a good base too. As far as the vehicle to get the dip into your mouth, I recommend a hearty tortilla chip like the blue corn chips or scoop Fritos!
6 Cold Snack Dips
When mixing a cold snack dip, you will find most of these fall into the mayonnaise-based family. I prefer Helmann’s real mayonnaise in my dip recipes. One of the nice options with many cold dips is the option to serve with raw vegetables. It gives the illusion of a healthy snack. However, don’t be fooled. The only reason I put those raw veggies on the plate is to serve as a vehicle to get the creamy dip into my mouth!
Actually, if I am being totally honest, I don’t need a big sports event to make party food. If it were up to me, I would fix snack food for every meal. My family knows I love appetizers for dinner. So, there is a chance you will find one of these party dips at our table on any given night.
