Creamy Garlic Dip with Garlic Toasts

A trip to the oven takes the edge off a large amount of raw garlic, making it sweet and caramelized. This dip packs a punch, but it's always a crowd pleaser. If you're short on time, look for whole garlic cloves that come already peeled in the produce section of most supermarkets.
