Thank you for offering this recipe. My family sampled the dip as originally described and mixed this evening, and then offered suggestions, in the process leaving most of the dip for me to eat. The consensus is that crab meat has a subtle flavor. Cocktail sauce, hot sauce, and horseradish sauce easily overwhelm the crab. The result is a spicy, needlessly expensive, cocktail sauce-flavored, cream cheese dip. Celery could have substituted for the crab. Personally, I would never think to spread cocktail sauce over crab meat. I won't again. I plan to revisit the crab dip concept starting with crab meat and cream cheese and then add subtle flavoring. If I find a workable result, I'll post it.



I have made this several times and everyone always asks me for the recipe. I go a little easy on the horseradish and sometimes sprinkle some crab meat on top as well.



This was a, must have, at my sisters baby shower. Everyone loved it and asked me to bring it to another gathering. No left overs, you know it is good when that happens. Only thing I added was LOTS of crab meat to the cream cheese mix and then some on top of the sauce. Definate Must Have!!
