Cherry Cheesecake Dip is so good and a super easy and delicious idea when you’re needing a quick appetizer. Dessert Dip is the new craze and this no-bake cheesecake dip is one of our favorites.
Simple Cheesecake Dip with Cherry Pie Filling
This cheesecake dip is so simple to make! It is so light and fluffy and is a great addition to a buffet table of desserts. This recipe can be served with all types of things like graham crackers, sugar cookies, fruit, or pretzels. I prefer using pretzels as it adds a lovely sweet and salty flavor that blends together so well.
Ingredients You Need
Cream Cheese: Use softened or room temperature cream cheese to allow ingredients to blend more easily. Using cream cheese in your filling will enhance the flavor and give it a more fluffy and delectable texture.
Powdered Sugar: This is the best sugar to use when needing a frosting with a smooth consistency.
Vanilla Extract: Vanilla is used not only to add an aroma to the recipe but also to enhance the flavor as well for a sweeter and more delicious recipe.
Pure Lemon Juice: This is just another flavoring that will add a slightly tangy taste to the dip. Be sure to check and make sure that it is not from concentrate.
Cool Whip: This will be mixed in to make the thick and creamy texture of the dip. Cool Whip also has lots of flavor, so it will make the dip even more delicious.
Cherry Pie Filling: This will be spooned on top of the cheesecake dip. All of the cherry flavorings come from this ingredient to make it a Cherry Cheesecake Dip.
Graham Crackers: Crush up the graham crackers to add on top of the cheesecake dip. Graham Crackers are also one of my favorite things to dip into the cheesecake dip.
