5-Minute Dips Everyone Will Dive Into

Whether you prefer sweet or savory, mild or intense, these lightning fast dips are your new party time (and snacking) staples. Keep the ingredients for a few of these on hand for when those unexpected guests stop by -- and then you can break out your hostessing super powers.

Best Ever 5-Minute Microwave Hummus

In way less time than it would take to run to the store for a container of not-so-great hummus, you can have this insanely good homemade version from Minimalist Baker ready to be devoured. Pair with crunchy pita chips or sliced veggies, or just eat with a spoon.

Sweet Potato White Bean Dip

Roast the sweet potato ahead of time -- up to 5 days early -- and you can blitz this nutrient-packed dip together in a flash. Pair it with raw veggies, crackers, or even graham crackers for a super snack that little and big kids will love.

5-Minute Magic Green Sauce

Herbs, avocado, and a handful of other potent ingredients come together in this blender sauce from Pinch of Yum that's perfect with chips, crackers, cut-up vegetables, and sliced baguette. It's sort of like a perfect mashup of pesto and guacamole that you can change, flavor-wise, depending on the season.

Brownie Batter Dip

Who says you need to bake brownies to enjoy the batter? Fake Ginger's recipe for Brownie Batter Dip makes quick work of a classic indulgence that whips up in just one bowl. The candy topper adds some crunch to this silky smooth dip.

Quick Dairy-Free Caramel Sauce

With just a few healthy ingredients -- including dates for sweetness and caramel flavor -- you can make this decadent dip from Petite Allergy Treats for a sweet afternoon snack or a memorable dessert. Pair it with sliced fruit, shortbread cookies, or another favorite dipper and enjoy a treat minus the guilt.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Cooking Classy has a go-to idea for an afternoon snack that would be just as welcome at a book club discussion or a baby shower. You could add some simple vanilla or chocolate wafer cookies to make it a little more decadent, or swap in Sunbutter if there are nut-allergy concerns.

Creamy Avocado Ranch

Use this delicious mixture as a dip for veggies or tortilla chips, a sauce for burritos (or burrito bowls), or a spread on a sandwich. Either way, this super fast dip from One Lovely Life is a must-make. There are even dairy-free substitutions should you need them.
