Cooking is always a joy, but it's especially wonderful at Christmastime, when friends and family are near, jingle bells ring, grown-ups giggle as much as their kids, and the food - pernil, tamales, and flan…oh my! - tastes sweeter, richer, and more lovingly prepared than it does at any other time of the year.

Here's the deal: dip is good, but sweet dip is great. Why? Because sweet dips combine the social snacking benefits of your standard issue dips - guac, salsa, hummus - with the sweet-tooth-satisfying, sugary yumminess of dessert. And if you have to ask why that's great, well...you might need to see a physician.
Case in point, this Coconut Flan Dip. Equally delicious whether prepared with instand pudding, cooked pudding or purchased prepared pudding, it's a cinch to make and is guaranteed to please anyone lucky enough to get a taste. To amp up the tropical flavors, make it with coconut cream pudding. Whatever you decide, you'll be glad you did this dip.
