This is very easy to make. I never have any left over. The family asks for it all the time.

I have made this several times and everyone always asks me for the recipe. I go a little easy on the horseradish and sometimes sprinkle some crab meat on top as well. Read More

Thank you for offering this recipe. My family sampled the dip as originally described and mixed this evening and then offered suggestions in the process leaving most of the dip for me to eat. The consensus is that crab meat has a subtle flavor. Cocktail sauce hot sauce and horseradish sauce easily overwhelm the crab. The result is a spicy needlessly expensive cocktail sauce-flavored cream cheese dip. Celery could have substituted for the crab. Personally I would never think to spread cocktail sauce over crab meat. I won't again. I plan to revisit the crab dip concept starting with crab meat and cream cheese and then add subtle flavoring. If I find a workable result I'll post it. Read More

This was a must have at my sisters baby shower. Everyone loved it and asked me to bring it to another gathering. No left overs you know it is good when that happens. Only thing I added was LOTS of crab meat to the cream cheese mix and then some on top of the sauce. Definate Must Have!! Read More

This recipe was a huge hit - my guests were scraping the dish for the last bites. I added a bit more horseradish and a less cocktail sauce - but I will make it according to the recipe next time. It is a recipe that can't be messed up. Read More

I took this to a party and it vanished in a matter of moments! Everyone was raving about how good it was. It would be very fast and easy to make using the canned crab meat but I shelled my own which took quite a while! Read More
