    Thank you so much for sharing this! I am always trying to find something simple for my youngest to help with. She likes to “cook” and find new recipes. This would be a nice hot snack for the kids for afterschool too. I like the idea of using celery too instead of just chips. For me, more like a meal. I am big on appetizers and chicken and cheese are my two favorite foods, even above CHOCOLATE. Yep, I really said that!

  9. we love this for parties!

  10. This really is perfect for that one game that shall not be named 😉 Since I’ll actually be “watching” this year, I probably should throw myself into making food, because I couldn’t care less about the football or commercial parts.


  12. I will make this for our superbowl party. I have heard a lot about Buffalo chicken dip so I will finally try it by making it this year.
