This turned out great. I used a whole 8 oz. block of cream cheese and let the cream cheese get up to temp just a bit, then folded in the other ingredients. The milk isn't really necessary, if you plan on serving it right away. I served it with gingersnaps and sliced apples. Very good.
I don't know what happened but when I tried this recipe it was too runny to be dipped. Also, it did not taste like cheesecake at all. I'm not sure what happened?
I had some pound cake in the freezer that needed to be eaten, so I thought let's try this....it was amazing. I love this recipe. Didn't change a thing. Will definately make again. Thanks for the post.
I made this for my Sister's baby shower. It was a hit, i made it more as a sweet appetizer than a dessert, but it can be used as either. i also added a drop of almond extract and it made just a little more delicious. Try this one, its easy, quick and cool!
I thought this dip was fabulous. Caviat: I orginally made this recipe as is, and it was good, but I felt like I wanted more of the cheesecake flavor and less of the whipped cream flavor. So, I put in another block of cream cheese. Now, I made this recipe for 40 people, so my ratio was 2 blocks cream cheese (8 oz), one large tub of whipped cream, 1/3 cup of milk (not adding more milk helped thicken it a bit), and added powdered (not granulated) sugar to taste. I found it had more of a cheesecake flavor this way, but both ways were delicious, depending on your tastes.
PS--I made it as a fruit dip for a shower, but it is very similar to what we use for Mississippi Mud Pie. Great!
Everyone really loved this dip but I didn't add the Cool Whip and I added 8 ounces of cream cheese instead of 4. It turned out better with a stronger 'cheesecake' flavor and it was just the right thickness. :D
I too used softened cream cheese. However, the recipe cannot be correct. 3 oz of cream cheese was like runny Cool Whip. After adding the other 5 oz it was perfect! Im using it on graham crackers and strawberries.
I love this! It's not overly sweet, it's just right. I took it to a "Potluck" at work and everyone RAVED about it. I served it with HoneyMaid Graham Sticks. Delicious!
