HOW TO MAKE CHRISTMAS SPINACH DIP:

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz frozen spinach, thawed and drained
  • 6 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, grated
  • 1 can refrigerated pizza crust
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter

Tip: I love how using Pillsbury crust cuts out so much of the last minute prep work, but if you prefer, homemade pizza dough totally works for this recipe as well. Use homemade spinach dip, or store bought dip could be substituted instead.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

2. In a large bowl, mix together the spinach and cream cheese.

3. Add garlic, salt, onion powder, chili powder and stir to combine.

3. Add parmesan cheese and half of the mozzarella cheese and mix to combine. The other half of the mozzarella cheese will be sprinkled over the filling when you shape the Christmas tree.

4. Open the can of pizza crust dough and spread it out flat. Use a pizza cutter to cut a large triangle from the center of the dough.

5. Reserve the remaining dough triangles to go over top of the spinach filling.

10. Melt butter and then brush over the entire tree. Add a little bit of garlic salt if desired.

11. Bake tree in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes until golden brown on top and cooked through on the bottom.

12. Serve warm. Guests can pull each breadstick from the tree as they would like.

Tips and tricks for dessert dips:

  • For those with a sweet tooth, make an easy dip by combining one package cream cheese with Cool Whip and a splash of vanilla extract.
  • Customize the flavors of your dip by adding some unprepared boxed cake batter mix.
  • Serve dessert dips with store-bought cookies, like graham crackers and vanilla wafers, or use your favorite homemade Christmas cookies. I especially like shortbread cookies and gingerbread cookies.
