It is important to prep for this dip and pull out and unwrap cream cheese to soften on the counter at room temp. This usually takes about 15-20 minutes. Softening cream cheese will help make combining further ingredients easier. I do not recommend microwaving cream cheese to soften it as it can melt quite quickly. Additionally, Cool Whip topping should not be frozen.
Add softened cream cheese to a mixing bowl and beat until smooth.
Add marshmallow cream and combine well, beating till smooth.
Now dump in Cool Whip topping and beat all ingredients together until smooth and spreadable.
Carefully spread cheesecake dip onto a serving plate.
Top dip with cherry pie filling.
Serve cherry cheesecake dip immediately or refrigerate, covered, until ready to serve.
Dippers usually include shortbread sticks or graham crackers.
CAN DIP BE MADE AHEAD OF TIME?
Absolutely! This dip can be made and stored in advance. Please note that cream cheese tends to firm up in the fridge, so its best to pull out of the fridge about 30 minutes prior to serving to ensure easy dipping.
TIPS FOR STICKY STIRRING
Electric beaters are great to keep a dip smooth but the ingredients make get stuck inside the beater during the process. Use a spatula to push out any cheesecake dip while smoothing.
USE PIE FILLING
As this is cherry cheesecake dip, we obviously used delicious red cherry pie filling for the ultimate topping. However, as mentioned initially above, other pie filling flavors can easily be changed out to create other cheesecake dips. Pie fillings come in all flavors including Lemon, Blueberry, Raspberry, Mixed Berry, Poppy Seed, Rhubarb, Strawberry and even apple pie.
WHAT TO DIP IN CHEESECAKE DIP
I know what you are thinking – why not just grab a spoon and dig in?? You CAN do that (licking the spatula is my favorite part) but cheesecake dip is one of the easiest dips to serve.
