You may make a lot of Christmas dips like artichoke dip, crab dip or cheese dip for an appetizer, but have you ever thought about a dip for dessert. You’ve come to the right place if you are looking for a new Christmas dessert. Gingersnap dip is full of holiday flavors like molasses, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg.

I call this recipe by a lot of different names like Christmas dip, gingersnap dip, and gingerbread cheesecake dip. Whatever you want to call it, it’s delicious!

One reason I LOVE dips is that they are SUPER easy and I’m always on the lookout for more dip recipes. They don’t even require you to turn your oven on. This is the perfect holiday recipe for any party or while you’re putting up the Christmas tree!

Gingersnap Dip

You can serve this dip recipe with all kinds of dippers. This can be served with graham crackers, but my favorite is apples. You can even use prezels, vanilla wafers or gingersnaps.

Kitchen Tools to make Christmas Dip

Handheld Electric Mixer– You can use a stand mixer for this recipe, but you don’t have to get it out if you don’t want to. A simple hand mixer will do fine. I actually use my hand mixer way more than my stand mixer. It’s just easier to get out and clean. Anyway, the hand mixer I linked to above is one I got for a wedding gift over twenty years ago and it’s still going strong and I bake A LOT! I definitely recommend it.

Large bowl– I LOVE stainless steel bowls. They are great in the kitchen for all kinds of cooking and baking. They hold up well and don’t need to replace often.

Eggless Dessert Resources

If you are new to my site, then you should know I’m allergic to eggs. I’ve been allergic my entire life so I’ve never been able to eat “normal” cookies and cakes. This recipe is a great sweet dessert that’s eggless!

If you’re like me, then you’re probably on the lookout for more dessert recipes that are egg free.  I hate finding a recipe and clicking on it and it has an egg in it!

I started an eggless recipe board on my personal Pinterest page and then realized that I should probably link it to my blog.  It’s great finding recipes that are egg free and when I need one I can go look and eat everything in it.

I have an EGGLESS Recipe board on Pinterest and there are a ton of great food recipes.  You can follow it here.  I pin on it every week because I’m ALWAYS on the lookout for new recipes.

I also have an EGG FREE RECIPE Facebook page that I just started, so there is only one follower right now, me!  (Update:  It’s over 2400 now!!) Go follow over there and I’ll post any good recipes I find!

Tip #1 for making Gingerbread Dip

This recipe calls for 2 cups of whipped cream.  I use the canned whipped cream (the kind you squirt in your mouth) from the refrigerated section of the grocery store. However, you can make your own homemade whipped cream if you want to.

Some recipes called for a whipped topping like Cool Whip but Cool Whip has a different taste. I prefer to use whipped cream to lighten up the dip.
