How to make Gingerbread Cheesecake Dip:
- First, beat the cream cheese until smooth.
- Next, pour in the sugars and molasses and beat until smooth and combined.
- Then, add in the cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger mixing until combined.
- Finally, beat in the cool whip. Then transfer to a serving bowl and chill until ready to serve. Serve with graham crackers.
Cook’s Note – Gingerbread Cheesecake Dip:
- This dip will keep, covered in the refrigerator, for up to 5 days. Just don’t place the decorative sprinkles (if using) until right before serving.
- This recipe calls for 4 ounces of cool whip; this equals 1 1/2 cups.
- If the cool whip isn’t your thing, feel free to use freshly whipped cream instead. You will need 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream whipped to the stiff peaks stage. This should yield you about 1 1/2 cups, then use it in the recipe like you would the cool whip.
- A lot of people have asked about the decorative sprinkles I used in the pictures. I found them at Bed Bath and Beyond, but I’m pretty sure they don’t sell them anymore. However, THESE are very similar and just as cute!
