No Bake Cherry Cheesecake Dip
I like to make things as easy as humanly possible. With 3 kids it can get a bit hectic especially during the holidays. Going so far as to have my sister in law ask me to bring it year after year, I knew after that season it was a hit.
- Graham cracker crust for cheesecake is used for this one
- or just put straight into a baking dish / pie plate without a crust
- Topped with cherry pie filling
- or use any flavor you’d like
- Jar of marshmallow fluff
- Cream cheese
- Cool whip thawed
- serve with graham crackers
- sliced apples
- wafer cookies
You could crush vanilla wafers up and blend with some melted butter to make a crust too like we did with our cheesecake in muffin tins. OR just keep them whole and serve on the side for dipping.
Philadelphia Cheesecake Dip
I’m all about inexpensive so store brand everything is just fine! When you’re ready to make it leave the cream cheese block on the counter for about an hour so it gets closer to room temperature. That will make it easier to make the creamy cheesecake mixture.
You can use some elbow grease to mix it all together or use a hand mixer and beat cream cheese and marshmallow fluff on low. You just want to make sure the 2 cheesecake like filling is mixed together well.
If it is still a bit cold you may need a bit of medium high speed but just until smooth. It won’t look pretty if it’s lumpy. Then be sure to gently fold in the whipped topping. You want it light and fluffy so put away your mixer for this last step.
4 Ingredient Cheesecake Dip
If you want to make your own graham cracker crust you just need melted butter and smashed graham crackers. Just mix enough melted butter so the crumbs are damp enough to press into your pie pan so they stick to the sides.
Alternatively you can just serve this in a round serving dish, or double it and put it in a 13×9 glass pan. Up to you. We love this dip either way it’s served. You can make homemade cherry pie filling too.
Cheese Cake Dip
Once you have the marshmallow creme and cream cheese as creamy as possible just spoon it in. Spoon the cherry pie filling (or any other flavor) on top of that….you’re done!!
- Just break apart the graham crackers and use those to dip!
You can make it as you see here or if you want individual servings you can make the filling and then spoon it into little ramekins with a few graham cracker pieces stuck out of it. Then people can pick one up and roam around.
It’s just as easy as when we make our pumpkin cream cheese dip served mostly during the holidays. If you have a bigger get together I would make a few choices for everyone with the “dippers” in the middle of all of them.
Cherry Cheesecake Dip Recipe
If you want something sweet a few ingredient recipe is always a bonus. Looking for other Christmas brunch menu ideas? I have a few others that use some of the same ingredients and/or pair well with this one. It is fun to have some sort of a theme at times.
Of course you can make several variations of Philadelphia Cream Cheese Cheesecake Recipe with different fillings spooned on the top as well but they aren’t as easy to serve.
- This holiday cheese ball is another one you should try.
- Caramel pumpkin monkey bread is well let’s just say amazing!
- Air fryer cinnamon roll sticky buns are the bomb.
- Cherry cheesecake egg rolls are a close second to this.
- we love cherry bread too for a breakfast treat
2 ingredient cherry brownies are great too. You use the same can of filling for these with a box of brownie mix and that is it. I make this one in a mini muffin pan so they can be picked up and eaten as guests talk to one another.
