Cherry Cheesecake Dip
My Mother in Law LOVES cheesecake! It is her go-to dessert for every occasion. I knew she would love this dip.
We made it for Christmas Eve dinner and surprised her with a huge bowl of it just for her.
She loves cheesecake so much that we find a different cheesecake to mail to her for every birthday and holiday.
I had to laugh when she called us on Christmas and said that family had come over and were eating the dip with a spoon.
They didn't see the graham crackers and just loaded big scoops of the cherry cheesecake dip up on plates and enjoyed it with a spoon.
- Cream Cheese
- Sweetened Condensed Milk
- Cool Whip Whipped Topping
- Cherry Pie Filling
Dippers - Serve with Graham Crackers, vanilla wafers, cookies, pretzels, apple slices
Cream Cheese - Make sure to set the cream cheese out for a couple of hours so it can reach room temperature and be really soft. This will make it a lot easier to make this dessert dip.
Cool Whip - You can use any type of Cool Whip you have available.
Cherry Pie Filling - This recipe can easily be adapted to use strawberry pie filling, blueberry pie filling, or your favorite pie flavor.
Optional Topping - Sprinkle graham cracker crumbs around the edges.
Hand Mixer - We used a hand mixer and it worked great. A stand mixer would also work just make sure to use a spatula to scrape the sides of the bowl.
Large Mixing Bowl - We are big fans of this glass batter bowl that has a handle. It makes it easy to mix ingredients and keeps the mixing bowl steady on the counter.

How to make Cherry Cheesecake Dip
Step 1 - Add softened cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk to a large bowl. Use a hand mixer in the bowl beat the cream cheese and sweetened condensed milk together until they are light and fluffy. The cheesecake mixture should be light and airy.
Step 2 - Add in Cool whip and gently fold in the whipped topping until evenly combined.
Step 3 - Spread in your baking dish that is large. When you spread the cream cheese mixture try to make it higher on the sides and leave an area or the cherry pie filling in the middle.
Step 4 - Evenly spread the cherry pie filling in the serving dish. We like to leave some of the cream cheese mixture showing around the edges for a fun look.
Store in the fridge until ready to serve.
This recipe makes a LOT!!! You can decrease the amount of cherry pie filling and cool whip if you want a smaller dessert dip.
This recipe can be made ahead of time just leave off the cherry pie filling until you are ready to serve.
Make sure to store this dip in the refrigerator before and after serving it covered in plastic wrap.
Add in a teaspoon vanilla extract if desired for additional flavor.
