This cheesecake dip is super creamy, rich and completely addicting. It is the ultimate no-bake dessert and SO easy to make! Customize with your favorite mix-in’s and dippers.
You all know I’m a fan of my no bake cheesecake, so I thought why not make a dip for an easy party appetizer. This dip will quickly become a family favorite and one you will bring to all your holiday gatherings and social events. It is just that good.
This is one of those recipes where I always have the ingredients on hand (at least for one of the variations), so it’s a great last minute treat! You could even cut the recipe in half if you just want a little treat for a small get together. I’ve got 4 ways to make this cheesecake dip for you today, but I have to say the caramel pecan is my favorite! Especially with those waffle crisps (the private selection brand from Kroger are so yummy).
