This Maple Pecan Cranberry Dip combines all the best flavors of fall in a delicious dip that’s perfect for the holidays!
Let’s talk holiday parties for a minute, shall we? Do you ever have the feeling that you should enjoy them more than you actually do?? (Did I really just say that?) Okay, don’t get me wrong. I love the holidays, and I love the parties that come along with them. It’s just that sometimes….it starts to feel like a little much. Like we try to pack ALL the socializing into one month out of the year. And…ALL the eating!
I know. This is not something to be complaining about. But it IS something to be ready for…with some go-to recipes that are quick, easy, and delicious! Because we all know that showing up empty handed is not an option. But neither is spending all day slaving away on one recipe!
Enter: easy dip recipes like this Maple Pecan Cranberry Dip! It comes together in just minutes and has just the right balance of flavors and textures. Slightly sweet with a hint of savory, this dip pairs perfectly with apple slices, pretzels, or crackers. My personal favorite is to pair it with something savory, like these Way Better Rosemarry Me & Olive Oil Crackers.
Between the pecans, the maple syrup, the cranberries, and the rosemary, it really is the perfect holiday appetizer. And, just between you and me, it might even help you enjoy those holiday parties! Errr – more than you already do, of course.
