Individual vegetable sticks in dip is a great idea as really, i always have left-over veggies that I have to put away and if you know approx. how many people, why not buy your veg, prep and put together single servings with some extras and that way your dip won't be warming up all night! I think this is the ticket!
parmesan cheese cups, so easy! formed on shot glasses or upside down muffin tins - add a little salt, pepper and garlic powder for added taste. Great appetizer dish-put whatever you want inside the cup
