no-cook recipes for an (indoor) potluck

Tomorrow is the 4th of July which officially means it's potluck season. If you get a last minute invite to a party and the food will be served in a relatively cool place, I have two no-cook recipes that you can throw together in minutes. And they're seriously tasty.

Stupid Easy Crab Dip

1 block of cream cheese
1 package of fake crab meat (you can be fancy I guess and get real crab)
1 container of cocktail sauce or make your own with horseradish and ketchup

Put the cream cheese on your desired serving dish. Cut the crab into bite-sized pieces and arrange them on top of and around the cream cheese. Finally, pour the cocktail sauce on top. Serve with crackers.

Stupid Easy Brie with Caramel

1 block of brie
5 granny smith apples
1 jar of caramel
chopped nuts if desired

Place the brie on your serving dish. Pour caramel on top. Heat in microwave briefly if desired. Serve with sliced apples.

There you have it. Ridiculously fast and easy recipes for a last-minute party.
