Ingredients in this Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake Dip Recipe
- Whipping Cream - always make sure your whipping cream is cold when you go to whip it! You can also substitute light whipped topping or Cool Whip if you want to cut out a little bit of saturated fat. If you want to lighten this up even further, add in a jar of marshmallow fluff!
- Cream Cheese - you want your cream cheese to be at room temperature so that it will get nice and fluffy, and mix easily with the whipped cream. If you forget to pull if out ahead of time, you can transfer to a microwave-safe container and heat for about 10 seconds at a time until it gets to be room temperature.
- Powdered Sugar - it’s always a good idea to sift your powdered sugar to get rid of any clumps that may have formed.
- Cocoa Powder - you can use any brand of cocoa powder.
- Vanilla Extract - pure vanilla extract tastes best!
- Mini Chocolate Chips - we’ve found that the mini chocolate chips are the perfect size. If you only have regular-sized chocolate chips, they will work.
- Cherry Pie Filling - you can usually find this in the baking aisle at the store. If you want, you could also substitute with any berry or lemon pie filling.
How to Make No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Dip
- Whip cream. Add whipping cream to the bowl of a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Whip on medium high for 3-4 minutes, or until soft peaks form. Transfer to a separate bowl and set aside.
- Mix the cream cheese layer. Rinse out the bowl for the stand mixer, then add the room temperature cream cheese. Using the paddle attachment, beat the cream cheese on medium speed until light and fluffy. Slowly add the powdered sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla extract and mix until light and fluffy again. Use a rubber spatula to fold the whipping cream into the cheesecake mixture until well combined, then fold in chocolate chips. Spread the cheesecake layer evenly into the bottom of a 9" x 9" (or 8" x 8") baking dish.
- Add the cherry pie filling. Using a spatula, spread the cherry pie filling evenly over the cheesecake mixture.
- Serve. Serve immediately or cover with plastic and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Eat with graham cracker sticks, vanilla wafers, Scooby crackers or any other sweet dip-able cracker.
Variations & Substitutions to No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Dip
- To make plain cheesecake dip, just omit the cocoa powder and chocolate chips!
- If you want to cut a few calories, substitute light cream cheese and light whipped topping.
- Add a jar of marshmallow fluff to lighten the mix up even more and make it taste almost like hot chocolate cheesecake dip!
- You can cover the cheesecake dip with other types of pie filling, too. Apple, strawberry, blueberry and lemon are all excellent substitutions!
- Try adding 1 cup of Nutella to the mix! Just beat it into the cream cheese before adding the powdered sugar. Yum!
- For a real no-bake cheesecake feel, cover the bottom of your serving dish with a ¼” layer of Graham Cracker Pie Crust. You don’t need to bother baking it - just make and press into the bottom before spreading in the cheesecake layer.
How to Make Ahead of Time
It’s best to eat No-Bake Chocolate Cheesecake Dip within 24 hours of making it. If you want to try and make it ahead of time, we recommend mixing up the cream cheese layer, spreading it into your serving dish and wrapping well with plastic wrap.
You can keep that refrigerated for up to 3 days, then remove from the fridge for about 30 minutes, spread the cherry pie filling over the top and enjoy!
