Gingerbread Dip recipe: creamy, fluffy and perfect for the holidays!

I haven’t always loved the flavor of gingerbread. I tried numerous times over the years to make (and enjoy) gingerbread men cookies.

I think because I love sugar cookies loaded with frosting, I never got into the gingerbread men.

And making Gingerbread houses, well we all know you buy the kit and never eat it right? Oh, some of you bake it yourself? I bow down. And you eat it? Well, if eating the candy while creating the house counts, then yes, I eat it too!

And I love gingersnaps, the kind that come in the brown bag from the grocery store! I like to freeze them and eat them ice cold. Is that weird??

So today, I made you all a Gingerbread Dip. It’s got cream cheese, greek yogurt, molasses, ginger…and more! All the delicious ingredients to make a holiday dip that everyone is sure to love!

Just a little note about greek yogurt, I like to use it in many of my recipes. While today’s recipe isn’t exactly “healthy”, by adding in greek yogurt I add some dairy into our diets, and as you may know greek yogurt is high in protein. You’re likely to eat less because protein keeps you full longer! Unless of course you have zero willpower! This is my way of adding in a little extra nutrients to our snacks and treats.

Comments & Reviews

  1. Wow, this looks delicious! Such a good idea! I love that it has greek yogurt in it, too! And I love the cause you’re promoting… so cool!

  2. Love to find a simple, but different recipe for that “take-a-long” dish for the holidays. Especially when I have all these ingredients right in my cupboard. I think this Gingerbread Dip will be a hit with my family.

  3. You are the queen of these greek yogurt/cream cheese dips! This gingerbread version looks so good, especially with those graham cracker sticks. What a neat way to help stop hunger – definitely sharing this!

  4. I love that this is made with Greek yogurt and cream cheese. It’s kind of like cheesecake that I can eat with my fingers. Or graham crackers and fruit, I guess.
    I was never a huge fan of gingerbread either (totally hopping on the sugar cookie train) but this sounds like a perfect and simple Christmas dip! Yum-o-la!

  5. You can even call this healthy because there is greek yogart in it 😉 It looks really tasty. A great dip for my Christmas Eve party.

  6. I think I need to have a cookie dip tasting party, and just make ALL the cookie dips I’ve ever seen on the internet, including this one. My goodness Aimee you’ve outdone yourself with this one! 😀

  7. This sounds amazing! I’m also a sugar cookie (slathered with frosting) kind of girl myself, but it’s nice to try something different for the holidays. I remember having to make gingerbread houses around the holidays in elementary school and mine always ended up dilapidated and leaning to one side or the other before eventually collapsing. This dip sounds like a much better alternative!

  8. Wow this dip looks delicious. I am picky about my ginger/molasses flavored sweets but this one looks so creamy and dreamy!!
