i've made this dip for years. For parties I spread the cream cheese on the bottom of a shallow pan then spread the crab sauce mixture on top. I get requests for this everywhere I go! Read More

I've been making this app for years and it's great to take to any party with people of all ages... I do it the same way CINDYT does by spreading the cream cheese on a platter then spread the cocktail sauce and shred up the crab on top of that... I serve it with several cracker choices. I wouldn't just put the block of cream cheese it's a little too hard for people to eat that way. Great dip though!! Read More
