Why You’ll Love This Cheesecake Dip

  • Only 5 Ingredients – This delicious cherry cheesecake dip only requires five ingredients. Those ingredients are cream cheese, whipped cream, powdered sugar, vanilla, and cherry pie filling.
  • Thick and Flavorful – This dessert dip is thick and rich. But it’s not so thick that you can’t easily dip cookies or graham crackers in it. The cherries add a tart and sweet flavor that balances perfectly with the cream cheese.
  • Takes Less Than 5 Minutes to Make – Fast and easy desserts are the best! This cheesecake dip takes less than 5 minutes to whip up.

Ingredients Needed for Cherry Cheesecake Dip

  • Cream Cheese – You can’t have cheesecake without cream cheese! Use either whipped cream cheese or a block of cream cheese for this recipe. Let the cream cheese soften at room temperature before preparing. This helps the dip maintain a smooth texture. It also makes it easier to mix.
  • Whipped Topping – Give the dip a lighter and fluffier texture with whipped topping. Cool Whip is my usual go-to, but use whichever brand you prefer. Homemade whipped cream is another option for this recipe as well. 
  • Confectioner’s Sugar – Also known as powdered sugar, confectioner’s sugar is sugar ground into a fine powder. It dissolves at room temperature and has a smoother texture than granulated sugar. It’s perfect for icings, glazes, or dessert fillings. It adds an extra sweetness to this cherry dessert dip.
  • Vanilla – Add a touch of warmth and rich flavor to the cheesecake mixture with a splash of vanilla extract. 
  • Cherry Pie Filling – This simple dessert recipe calls for a can of cherry pie filling. Canned pie filling keeps this recipe quick, simple, and affordable. Use a filling with whole cherries for a beautiful presentation.
  • Walnuts (optional) – Top the dip with chopped walnuts for an added crunch. Skip the nuts if you don’t like them.

How to Make Cherry Cheesecake Dip

This easy cheesecake dip recipe has all of the flavor of a traditional cherry cheesecake, but it takes a fraction of the time. It’s the perfect dip for cheesecake lovers or any fan of cherry desserts.

Step One – First, combine room temperature cream cheese, whipped topping, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl. Mix by hand or use an electric hand mixer.

Step Two – Next, transfer the cream cheese mixture to a serving bowl. Spread the creamy mixture evenly across a large shallow bowl. A large shallow serving container ensures each scoop of dip contains every ingredient. 

Step Three – Top the cheesecake mixture with a can of cherry pie filling. Spread the cherry filling evenly over the creamy base.

Step Four – Sprinkle chopped walnuts over the top of the dip. The nuts are a garnish and add an extra crunch. If you don’t like nuts, then garnish the dip with graham cracker crumbs instead.

What Do I Serve with This Creamy Dip?

  • Graham Crackers – Since cherry cheesecakes often contain a graham cracker crust, serving this cheesecake dip with graham crackers is a given. The lightly sweet flavor is the perfect companion for this tangy, sweet, and tart dessert. Chocolate graham crackers are also one of my favorite dippers.
  • Pretzels – Sweet and salty is a classic and delicious combination. Serve this dip with pretzels, or pretzel chips, for an added salty crunch.
  • Vanilla Wafers – These light cookies have a mild flavor that doesn’t overpower the flavor of the dip. They are simple and affordable. Sugar cookies are also a great option.
