Cheesecake Cake Batter Dip | A super easy dip that combines the awesome flavors of cheesecake and cake batter!
We have an epidemic happening in our house. A princess epidemic.
To put it in perspective for you, I am just about the least girly girl you will ever meet. It took a small intervention from a friend to get me to wear clothing that didn’t involve t-shirts from athletic events I’d participated in . . . like out and about. I don’t like wearing make up, and a getting dressed up for me is putting on earrings.
She seems to have been born wearing a tiara and sparkling shoes. I have no idea where she gets it from, but girl is OBSESSED with all things pink, glittery, and labeled “PRINCESS.”
(I am resisting the urge to barf as I type this.)
What is maybe funnier about this whole thing is that Nathan and I have totally embraced it. Nathan, raised with five brothers, would rather I wear work out clothes than a dress any day of the week. But come Christmas, he and I went NUTS with all things pink, frilly, and PRINCESS. (It’s like a four letter word for us.) And the other day I heard Nathan yell at Quinn, who has really embraced the terrible two’s in the last couple weeks, “That is NOT how a princess acts!!”
Every time I hear him drop the hammer with one of our kids, I fall a little more in love with him.
This is all to tell you that there is one dress that Quinn has started referring to as her “Princess Dress.” It’s a cute little hand me down from her cousin, and she insists on wearing it ALL. THE. TIME. Last night there was an epic meltdown because it was being replaced by pajamas. And this morning when I got her out of her crib, the first thing she said was, “I have princess dress, please. I like it all the time.”
At least she was polite about it.
The only thing this princess dress has to do with this dip is that both were brought to a New Year’s Eve party our family went to.
This dip is a little twist on the one you see floating all over Pinterest. With the addition of cheesecake flavored pudding mix, it has a little bit of a cheesecake taste combined with the cake batter taste. It is SO GOOD. It got gobbled up at the party. I show it hear with animal crackers, but I think it’s also really good with granny smith apples. I used Lite Cool Whip to make it, but I resisted the urge to call it skinny . . . given all the cake mix and pudding mix. But it’s still a lighter option than a lot of the dessert dips.
- 3.4 oz Cheesecake pudding mix (I used Jell-O)
- 1/2 cup dry white cake mix
- 1/2 cup milk (I used 2% milk)
- 8 oz of whipped topping (I used Lite Cool Whip)
- Stir the dry pudding mix into the thawed cool whip until combined.
- Stir in the milk and then the dry cake mix.
- Beat with the a hand held mixer on medium low until well combined, about two to three minutes.
- Serve with crackers and fruit.
