Ingredient Notes

  • Brown sugar is dissolved in melted butter to give the dip a richer flavor and caramel notes that elevate the sweetness of the cherries.
  • Powdered sugar adds additional sweetness while thickening the dip to a smooth, creamy consistency.
  • Cream cheese provides the base for the dip. Let it soften at room temperature first for best results.
  • Cherry pie filling is poured over the cream cheese filling to complete this dip. Canned pie filling works beautifully.

Recipe FAQs

Can I make this cheesecake dip with a flavor other than cherry?

Yes, it’s easy to change up the flavor of this cheesecake dip. Simply swap out the cherry pie filling for another fruity pie filling. Blueberry, peach and apple pie fillings would all be delicious.

How do I store leftovers?

Leftover dip can be covered tightly with plastic wrap and stored in the fridge. The dip is best enjoyed within 1 -2 days.

Does this dip have to chill before being served?

The dip can be served right away after adding the cherry topping. We do find that it tastes best when given at least a few minutes to chill in the fridge, but it’s not strictly necessary.

    1. Brown sugar did not dissolve be for the mixture started bubbling. Odd color from the brown sugar and much too sweet. A miss in my household

      1. Hmmm, sounds like the heat was turned up to high on stove. Or maybe the brown sugar wasn’t fresh?

    2. So glad I found this recipe! My brother reeeeally loves no-bake cherry cheesecake, and this is exactly that – but even easier! I am definitely making this for our Christmas Eve snack night 🙂 Thank you! 

    3. This reminds me of that classic cherry cheesecake that EVERYBODY loves. It looks fantastic, Aimee. Making it into a dip is just being super smart!
