Hot Cheesy Crab Dip and a Mommy-Daughter Kitchen Date #MemorableMelts

There are two camps in my house. Those who eat cheese and those who don’t. Hubs and little sister Keira love cheese, but they’re allergic to dairy. Let’s take a minute to feel sad for them. Very, very sad! Fortunately, Teagan and I can happily eat cheese until the cows come home.

Ever since Keira came along, Teagan’s had to adjust to sharing me and my attention. It’s been far too long since we’ve had some quality time for just the two of us, so this weekend we made a mommy-daughter date. Teagan always wants to help in the kitchen so I thought the perfect activity would be to make a special cheesy treat together. Hubs took Keira out to play for the afternoon, and Teagan and I spent some one on one time together in the kitchen.

I found this Hot Cheesy Crab Dip recipe on the Kraft Canada website and decided to adapt it for our special mommy-daughter kitchen date. Only four ingredients and super easy to make. Perfect!

We picked up a pack of Kraft Creamy Herb & Garlic Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia, a tin of canned crab, and some Philadelphia cream cheese. I whipped up some homemade mayo, then Teagan got to mix everything together.

Incidentally, I’d never bought shredded cheese before, but I really appreciated the convenience of having it pre-shredded. I like my four year old’s fingers all in one piece, thank you.

Once all the ingredients were well mixed, I spread it in a baking dish and put it in the oven for 15 minutes, stirring at the halfway mark. (We played a hand of Go Fish while we waited.) Then when the dip was melted all the way through, Teagan sprinkled more cheese on top, and I put it back in the oven for five more minutes.

We set the table and sat down to enjoy our dip with some carrot sticks. Yum! This was so good! Even though Teagan didn’t want to smile for the camera, she really was enjoying herself and enjoying the creamy dip. Talk about a melt to remember! This is one special memory I don’t want to melt away.

Kraft Shredded Cheese with a Touch of Philadelphia comes in three flavours: Creamy Mozza, Creamy Herb & Garlic, and Creamy Mexicana. Hmm, I sense a theme here: they’re creamy! This special blend delivered a soft and creamy melt that really did make our recipe better!
