Gingerbread Cookie Dip

This holiday recipe for Gingerbread Cookie Dip is perfect for a dessert table at a family party or to share with friends. Or to eat with a spoon.


I am sharing a new, holiday-inspired dessert recipe today - because it's Friday; it was 20 degrees this morning; it's SNOWING; and the holidays are only a few short weeks away. Who has started Christmas shopping? I have one item purchased so far. But I have a list.


This dip is easy to make with only a handful of ingredients. I lightened it up slightly and added protein by including Greek yogurt, but this is not a diet recipe. It also includes full fat whipped cream cheese and crushed cookies. When making holiday desserts, I don't like to skimp.


This no-bake dip can be made in 5 minutes and works best if you use a stand mixer or hand mixer to whip all the ingredients together.


Enjoy and happy Friday!
