  4. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  5. Combine the cream cheese and sour cream in a mixing bowl and whip together with an electric mixer on high speed to soften and combine.

  7. Stir in chives and remaining raw onions.
  8. Season to taste with salt.
  9. Spoon into a serving bowl and serve with crackers such as Triscuits.
