There are a lot of flavors that pop up around the holidays, but gingerbread is far and away my favorite. Most people get all excited about peppermint everything, which is great, but if I have a choice, gingerbread is what I will gravitate to. I love the complex flavors and the little spice that brings warmth to the food. This Gingerbread Cream Cheese Dip uses all of those same great flavors in an easy dessert dip. Any type of cookie is great to dunk in this dip, or even apples and pears. But I love to put ginger on top of ginger and use gingerbread cookies. Because I just can’t get enough of it.
Once for fall I made a Cinnamon Apple Cream Cheese Dip and it gets very popular in the fall time! So I wanted to use the same simple recipe base to create a whole new line of holiday cream cheese dip flavors. This dip is great because it whips up in just a few minutes for a fun sweet treat during the holidays.
- Make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature for easy mixing. For fast heating, remove the cream cheese from the package and cut into large chunks. Microwave in a medium bowl for 15 seconds.
- In a medium bowl, whisk together the cream cheese, milk, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract. If you want the dip thinner, continue adding milk 1/2 Tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency. Microwave again if needed as sometimes cold milk makes the cream cheese chunky again.
- Add the molasses, cinnamon, ground ginger, and nutmeg. Stir to combine. Season to taste with additional spices or sugar as desired.
- Chill if desired until ready to serve with your favorite dippers like gingerbread, cookies, or apples.
