We love a good dip here at Wholefully! Dips work great for pitch-ins, potlucks, or game-day eats—and this Million Dollar Dip is no exception. If you’ve never heard of Million Dollar Dip (AKA: Neiman Marcus Dip), no worries! This dip is basically all the ingredients of your favorite cheese ball, but in an easy-to-eat, no-fuss, and no-mess dip. Serve it with crisp veggies like celery and carrots or basically any kind of sturdy cracker. Let’s get dipping!
What is million dollar dip?
Million Dollar Dip is a cheese spread that gets some texture and crunch from crumbled bacon and slivered almonds. It is also known as Neiman Marcus Dip because it was first served at the department store’s restaurant.
What is the dip made of?
This party dip has a base of softened cream cheese and mayonnaise and is studded with slivered almonds, cheddar cheese, green onions, and bacon. It gets a little extra punch of flavor from some garlic powder.
Okay, how do I make million dollar dip?
It couldn’t be easier to make this appetizer!
- Toast the almonds in a skillet.
- Blend the cream cheese and mayonnaise until smooth.
- Stir in all the other ingredients.
Make sure your cheddar cheese is finely shredded—it will blend into the dip better, so you are getting a little of every flavor in each bite!
What should I serve with million dollar dip?
One of the great things about this creamy dip is its versatility! Try it with crudités like celery or carrot sticks, wheat crackers, or butter crackers. We’ve also enjoyed it with pretzels!
Tortilla chips are tasty, but they aren’t quite sturdy enough to stand up to this dip. We recommend saving them for salsa instead!
How far in advance can I make this dip?
Million dollar dip can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days.
Can I freeze the leftovers?
Sorry, but no. The cream cheese and mayo base does not freeze well. But we don’t imagine you’ll have trouble using up the leftovers!
