Crab Dip Tips

A few things to think about when choosing a crab dip...

Always serve hot crab dips hot. Most hot crab dip recipes can be kept hot by using a fondue pot, a crock pot, electric skillet or a hot tray.

Cold crab dips can be made ahead of time and require less "last minute" attention. They can, also, be heated up and served warm if that is a preferred taste!
