Sure, you could throw chips in a big bowl, set out a jar of salsa, and call it a party. But we make it easy to elevate any occasion with these five fresh ideas for serving chips and dip in a more sophisticated way.

Creating a bread bowl is as easy as buying a big round loaf of sourdough, cutting off the top, and scooping out bread to form a bowl. And bonus — once the dip is gone, you can eat the bowl! We stuffed ours with creamy kale and artichoke dip and set out multigrain chips (we like the all-natural ones from Food Should Taste Good) for dipping.
Who knew potato chips could seem so refined? Set a wine glass containing sour cream dip in a bowl, then fill the bowl with chips. Garnish with a sprig of dill and you’re done!
A hollowed-out pineapple makes serving up salsa more fun. You can whip up your own pineapple salsa, or simply add diced pineapple to jarred salsa for a homemade feel without all the work. Blue tortilla chips (we used ones from Food Should Taste Good) provide color contrast to give the pineapple center stage.
Surprise guests with a sweet chips-and-dip snack — jarred hot fudge sauce alongside apple, banana, and mango chips. You can even make our simple DIY chocolate bowl: Combine two tablespoons of shortening with two cups of melted chocolate chips and spread the mixture over the top of a blown-up balloon, then freeze for three minutes until solid. Pop the balloon and voila, your bowl is ready to fill!
