Berrylicious Cheesecake Dip, O Berrylicious Cheesecake Dip, where have you been all my life?
For those who know me really well, you probably know I am not a huge sweets person. In fact, we never have sweets in our house. For me, no problem, for Patrick, problem. The other week, he exclaimed, “Why are there no oreos in this house?!!! Just kidding. No, seriously, why are there no oreos in this house?”
I sweetly bought oreos for him the next time I was at Costco. The 12 pack or 68 pack, whatever it is, lasted him a week (deprived?). He has been known to pour oreos in a bowl, add milk and eat it as cereal.
Anyway…back to cheesecake dip. Because I am not a huge sweets person, you can be assured I will only post 1) the most delicious treats on my blog (like my Toffee Pecan Caramel Pound Cake, Homemade Little Debbie’s Oatmeal Creme Pies, and Angel Food Cake Churro Bites) and 2) easy ones! This White Chocolate Chip Berrylicious Cheesecake Dip is no exception.
I wanted to create a dessert that was lighter than traditional cheesecake but still mega creamy. In this dip, unlike in traditional cheesecake, the ratio of “cheesecake” to berries, is pretty equal, so the dip isn’t heavy, instead each bite is equal part sweet, creamy, cheesecake (swirled with mini white chocolate chips!) and equal part sweet, refreshing berries. For someone who is not that into sweets, I can honestly say this is addictingly delicious, so addictively delicious that I was the one to polish it off while Patrick was gone. Enough said!
a) It’s berrylicious …need I go on?
b) It’s gorgeous! Last time I served this dip for friends, the comment at first site was, “Oohhhh,,fancy!”
c) It’s easy. Simply whip up the cheesecake ingredients, spread on a platter (no bake!) and top with berries mixed with berry jam. That’s IT!!!
d) It’s actually better chilled. Love this fact because you can prepare the entire dessert beforehand for company or when you know you have a busy day ahead and simply pull out of the refrigerator, add the berries and serve!
