Gingerbread is my favorite holiday flavor. It may be because my German grandfather always sent us enormous batches of gingerbread cookies, but for me the flavors of gingerbread are just synonymous with the season.
This dip is the easiest gingerbread dessert you’ll find – no bake, and ready for company in 5 minutes.
I love dips as party desserts. It’s an easy bite, so people love to partake – and they usually disappear just as fast as you make them! This one gives you the creaminess of cheesecake and the spice of gingerbread all in one bite.
I used Nilla Wafers for dipping and they were awesome – but graham crackers and pretzels would be good too! And if you’re a fan of the combo of gingerbread and chocolate, mixing in some mini chocolate chips would be just perfect here.
Today is National Gingerbread Cookie Day and to celebrate, I’m linking up with some blogger buds to bring you all things gingerbread!
