  1. Hello,
    I found your recipe on Pintrest and It’s best dip recipe ever. I made it for Thanksgiving dinner and everybody was keep talking about this dip.
    Thank you So much!

  2. I know you say there’s no baking required, but did you try it warm as well? Sounds delicious as-is (and reminds me of a jello mold my mom used to make for thanksgiving with cranberry, pecan, and pineapple) but wondering if it would be good warm and figured I should just ask if you already tried! Happy Fall 🙂
