How to Make Caramelized Onion Dip

This Caramelized Onion Dip is really easy to make. First, caramelize some onions and coarsely chop them. Mix together cream cheese and sour cream and then mix in the chopped onions along with chopped parsley, onion powder and Worcestershire sauce. The dip then needs to sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour in order to let the flavors develop.

It does take more time to make this Caramelized Onion Dip than recipes that use onion soup mix, but the resulting dip is so incredible and full of flavor, that it is definitely worth the effort.

This delicious Caramelized Onion Dip was a big hit at the party. I served it with pretzel thins, crackers and cut up veggies; potato chips would also be a wonderful accompaniment.
