Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Dip is easy, creamy, and oh so delicious!
I love everything about this time of the year and I look forward to it every year. There is really nothing better than sipping a hot drink and watching Christmas movies beside the glow of the Christmas tree. Once November 1st roles around, I do my best to watch as many Christmas movies as possible! Is anyone else as addicted to those cheesy, but so endearing movies? A great Christmas night for me is being home, in my jammies, with a good snack, watching the Hallmark Channel. But since this is also the season of entertaining and parties, I have to change out of pjs sometimes and be social. And of course one of the best parts of holiday entertaining is the food!
It is always nice to offer to bring something whenever you are invited to a holiday party. I always try to have some recipe ideas on hand that are easy portable for this reason. Some of my favorite appetizers and party foods just don’t travel well. I love taking dips with me to parties because they are easy to transport. Even easier are cold dips, that don’t require a slow cooker or any reheating. This Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Dip is the ultimate dessert dip to take to a party. It is easy, can be served at room temperature, and requires minimal ingredients! And don’t forget a Hallmark card for the hostess thanking them for the invite!
I call this Cheesecake Dip because it is not super sweet, but more tangy like a cheesecake thanks to the Oikos Vanilla Greek Yogurt. I love the tang in Greek yogurt so I knew it would be the perfect ingredient for this dip to prevent it from getting overly sweet. Have you ever had Oreo cheesecake? It is seriously the best and this dip tastes just like the batter for that!
I am having a party this weekend with some girlfriends and while I would love to cook from scratch and amazing spread, I just have so much going on during this time of the year so I am going to make it easy on myself and simplify the menu. I am serving this Cookies and Cream Cheesecake Dip, cheese and Townhouse crackers, and I picked up a four pack of Market District Hummus.
I am going to make some meatballs as well in the slow cooker, and that’s it!I love that I can swing by Giant Eagle and get everything I need for entertaining. I love their Market District products which are a little more gourmet and definitely look fancier for a get together!
