This PISTACHIO CHEESECAKE DIP is crazy easy with just three ingredients!
One of my all time favorite things to make is easy stuff.
I mean, duh, right?
But seriously. Anything that takes only a couple ingredients? That’s my jam. I even have a whole section on my blog dedicated to recipes that are Five Ingredients or Less! It has desserts, drinks, sides, appetizers, and even a few main dishes! A LOT of those recipes are recipes that would be perfect for entertaining. Just really simple things that you can throw together when you have a few friends coming over.
One of the best kinds of recipes that falls into those categories (easy, few ingredients, perfect for entertaining) is dessert dip! I find that my guests always gravitate towards the dessert dips. They make you feel like you aren’t over indulging, and they are just so easy to enjoy when there are those crackers there just calling to you and begging to be dipped.
Plus, they are super easy to make ahead of time! This can easily be made the day before a get together and then you just need to add the whip cream and cherry right before serving! Totally perfect for a party.
Guys. This is just pudding, cream cheese, and Cool Whip. Think of the endless possibilities! I went with pistachio, and it is seriously amazing. I kind of just wanted to at it with a spoon! If you do, I will totally understand!
Two notes on this recipe:
You really HAVE to have the cream cheese at room temperature. It will be really hard to mix up if it’s not. I like to leave mine out for about an hour or two cut up.
If you must, this recipe works better with Lite Cool Whip, but it works a whole lot better with the non-Lite version.
- 8 oz cream cheese, room temperature
- 8 oz Cool Whip (best to use full fat) - store bought or homemade
- 3.5 oz pistachio instant pudding mix (just the mix)
- Mix the ingredients together on high until well combined. Serve with whip cream, a cherry, and animal crackers.
