Fall is here and bringing party season with it! I love serving dips at parties, but they don’t always have to be savory. Check out our butterscotch cheesecake dip that you can serve with a variety of dippers.
There are several things I love about fall. The weather is finally starting to cool off and the leaves start changing into beautiful colors. But, probably as no surprise, my favorite thing about fall is all the fall flavors that start popping up everywhere. Yes, I will admit that I do love pumpkin spice lattes, but I’m also a big fan of other fall flavors like caramel, apples, cinnamon, and butterscotch. So, when I was browsing in Target to pick up a few things the other day, I couldn’t resist checking out some of their new fall products like these deliciously crispy (but not teeth-breaking) Archer Farms Caramel Apple Biscotti.
While biscotti goes great with coffee and tea, I also think it makes for a great dipper idea. And, since we love having friends over for drinks and appetizers, I always like having a new dip recipe up my sleeve. However, dips don’t always have to be savory. So, inspired by Target’s fall products and my own favorite flavors, I couldn’t resist trying out this Butterscotch Cheesecake Dip recipe to use the biscotti as a dipper in. This easy cheesecake dip recipe has only four ingredients and takes just a few minutes to put together. There’s no cooking involved, and you can even make this dessert dip ahead of time and leave it in the fridge until ready to serve.
Along with the biscotti, I also served the butterscotch cheesecake dip with pretzel sticks, apple and pear slices, and graham crackers. I think the Archer Farms Cinnamon Sweet Potato Chips and Archer Farms Cinnamon Caramel Apple Pita Chips would go great with this dip as well. Here’s how easy it is to put together.
The Archer Farms caramel apple biscotti is also a great treat to go with morning coffee. As you can see, Mr. Savvy gets a bit hangry until he has his. ;)
- 1 8-oz block of cream cheese, softened
- 1 3.4-oz box of butterscotch instant pudding mix (unprepared)
- 2 cups whipped cream or whipped topping
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Optional garnishes: additional whipped cream and pumpkin pie spice mix
Place softened cream cheese in a medium bowl and sprinkle butterscotch pudding mix over the top.
With a hand mixer (or you can use a stand mixer), whip the cheese and pudding mix together at a medium to medium-high speed until cheese is smooth and pudding mix has been completely incorporated (no clumps of dry mix).
Add in whipped cream or whipped topping and vanilla extract and mix on a medium-low speed until thoroughly combined and uniform in color. If the dip happens to be too thick for your liking, you can mix in a tablespoon of milk or cream at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
Serve immediately or tightly wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
When serving, I like to top with a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkle of pumpkin pie spice mix to make it look extra pretty.
Serve with dippers like Archer Farms caramel apple biscotti, pretzels, sweet potato chips, fruits, graham crackers, etc.
Store leftovers tightly covered in the refrigerator for up to three days.
