“A snack to share”—the tune of friend and family gatherings everywhere when guests are told what to bring. And, no matter how big or small the party is, at the top of our list for shareable and craveable snacks is always… dips!

There are few foods more diverse than dips. Salty or smoky, spicy or sweet, these customizable snacks are sure to please. Especially right now, with Game Day quickly approaching and schedules getting fuller in the New Year, we think any of these crowd-pleasing dips will have you winning the MVC (most valuable cook) award at any party, with minimal time spent in the kitchen.

And, as you know, any good dip needs something to dip in it. That’s where we come in. Our mini buns like Party and Dinner rolls make great dip accompaniments. Or, if you’re looking for a more chip-like dipper, just flatten some Martin’s bread and toast in the oven until it’s perfectly light and crispy.

So what flavor dip are you craving? Keep scrolling to find a dip recipe and paired Martin’s product to match any taste!
