Happy Holidays friends! I have more gingerbread love to share with you! This yummy Gingerbread Cheesecake Dip is a definite holiday winner and it’s so easy to make. Easy is good this time of year, and gingerbread plus cheesecake is definitely good!
I love the Christmas season but I won’t lie… it makes me a tad frazzled. So this time of year I’m always looking for recipes that are great for entertaining and that I can quickly throw together, and this recipe is perfect. Nothing says Christmas cheer party time like a good creamy dessert dip!
When you combine cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg you really can’t go wrong, it’s Christmas comfort food! This dip lets you get all the great holiday flavors and have fun dipping different ingredients for variety. Lots of fun flavor combos to try!
A quick tip, a single batch of this dip calls for 2 cups of Cool Whip, but I like to double a lot of my holiday recipes. If you’re doubling this recipe use the entire 8 oz container of Cool Whip. I’ve measured out an 8 oz container and it’s about 3 1/2 cups but it’s fine and doesn’t affect the flavor of the recipe.
You can also prepare this recipe a day or two in advance. You could get a little liquid that separates in the dip but just give it a good stir to blend it and you’re good to go.
