    WAYYYY easier than making individual crab rangoons!! Thanks! I easily doubled the recipe, swapped chives for green onions as i didn't feel like making a run to the store, added some tabasco soy sauce, and omitted the sweet n sour sauce. Was WONDERFUL!!! Thanks Chris! 3-1-2010... love to use up extra dip with ritz crackers. doesn't matter wether the dip is warmed or cold, irrestible either way!!

    Fabulous! This is one of the easiest dips I have ever made. This was a huge hit as we love crab rangoons, but not the calories or expense of takeout. I didn't have parsley on hand so omitted that. I didn't use parm. cheese on wontons either. I also used the 1/3 reduced cream cheese and skim milk. A definite keeper.

    My parents and DH loved this dip. I wasn't quite as dazzled by it, but I couldn't seem to stop eating it so that should tell you something! It tasted similar to rangoon but we all felt it needed a bit more cream cheese. The wonton strips were fantastic! They were very easy to make and came out nice and crispy; the parmesan was also a nice touch. One half package of wontons was perfect for the amount of dip this makes, although I don't think anyone would complain about having some extra lying around! This dish was enjoyed by all. Thanks for sharing!

    This was unbelievable! I've given this recipe out to friends, great for parties. I put dip in my mini crockpot and put sweet/sour sauce on side. thanks!

    Nice change of pace for a dip, but for someone that LOVES crab rangoon, this wasn't quite it. Watch the wontons carefully as they turn from golden to charred very quickly.

    This stuff is some good! It was doubled and enjoyed by a crowd that I had in for some wine and appetizers. What a hit! Oops, almost forgot, I used canned crab instead of the imitation. I like the flavor much better!

    I made this for hubby and I to snack on Thanksgiving eve ... between the two of us it was gone! We used crackers instead of frying the wantons, but I bet it's great with the wontons!

    Yummy. Can't leave a recipe alone... so made a few changes. Left out onions -- can't stand them -- but added a little onion powder instead. Used light cream cheese, skim milk, fresh parsley and REAL crab meat. Also, did not use the full 1/4 cup sweet and sour sauce... added cayenne pepper and woozy to give it more oomph. I like the ease of microwaving the dip! Baked it a bit, too. The wontons are insane-good.

    Wonderful! It was so nice to not have to fry wontons yet get all of the delicious taste of wontons. I followed the recipe with the exception of using a 4.5 ounce can of crabmeat instead of the 6 ounces of imitation crabmeat. I used recipe #9389 for Sweet and Sour sauce.
