If you're hosting a party or having friends over, hot spinach and artichoke dip is one appetizer that will never disappoint. People of all ages just can't get enough of this creamy, cheesy, tangy dip. Although the classic bowl of dip and chips is sure to please, why not play around with the presentation and wow your friends and family instead?

These adorable bite size spinach and artichoke bites aren't only cute and unique, they are incredibly delicious! Since the dip is served in bite size phyllo shells, you still get the flakey, crunch you'd expect with a chip. You may find these easier (and a bit funner) to eat than the standard dip!
