YOU GUYS! I love cheesecake! I love it so much. Sometimes, though, I think it’s a little heavy. A little too dense. Sometimes, I can barely get through a single slice. But I want to! Oh, it’s so good! But man, is it ever filling, am I right? That’s why cheesecake dips like this gingerbread dip are SO AMAZING! They taste JUST like cheesecake but without all that heaviness!

This perfect dip for the holidays also makes a pretty spectacular holiday gift for someone. You could easily do Christmas cookies like these Santa Belt Oreos or cupcakes like these Christmas Tree Cupcakes (or these Snowman Cupcakes). But this dip served with an assortment of delicious dippable cookies? Magical. Simply magical.

The spice in this dip really gives it that little extra oomph. So tasty and smooth, and easy to whip together for a party, get together, or just to enjoy sitting next to your tree with a fresh cup of egg nog! The addition of mini chocolate chips as garnish really complements this well too, but can easily be left off if desired. It sure looks pretty though! Almost like edible cookie dough!
