Want to know my favorite secret of this recipe? I usually only plate up about 80% of the dish. The last bit of it goes into a small tupperware jar in the freezer. When our party is done and the kitchen is clean I sit down and enjoy this cheesecake “ice cream.” Try it next time, let me know what you think of it!
- 3/4 cup heavy cream , very cold
- 1 8- ounce package cream cheese , best if out of fridge for an hour first
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/3 cup powdered sugar , sifted
- 1/4 cup molasses
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
- 1 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- In a stand mixer beat the heavy cream on high until you get stiff peaks, 2-3 minutes.
- Put the whipped cream in a bowl and put in the freezer.
- Back in the stand mixer, beat the cream cheese until smooth and add the powdered sugar.
- Once combined add in the molasses, brown sugar, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg and beat until completely smooth and no grainy texture is left, 2 minutes or so.
- Gently fold in the whipped cream until combined.
- Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Where’d you get the sprinkles?
Aren’t they cute?! I mixed tree sprinkles with gingerbread men. I found them on Amazon, http://amzn.to/2h7NOLP They make the dip festive, so I couldn’t resist!
This is such a yummy and festive treat for the holidays! I love the gingerbread men as cookies to dip.
I love the idea of getting the taste of cheesecake. Eating a whole piece of cheesecake can be overwhelming sometimes.
The problem with that thinking is, you just have a few bites, and before you know it, you’ve eaten more than a whole slice’s worth!
That sounds so good! My family would love it.
I love gingerbread, so I can imagine how delicious this dip must taste! I make a pumpkin dip like this and it always goes over well at parties, but I am thinking your dip needs to be on my next appetizer list!
Okay, this just hit the spot. We need this in our lives.
Aww thanks Chloe!
What a yummy Idea indeed. This dip looks delicious. My kids would love this for sure. Thank you for sharing.

Oh my gosh, I have to make some of this for a holiday movie night. That would be so good with some graham crackers.
YUM! I love the idea of this! Especially because I often find plain gingerbread men a little blah. Nice job!
Oh yum! This is something I can get behind. I’ve been eating sweets every day for the last week and this would be the perfect addition to my cravings.
It’s hard not to eat all the sweets during the holiday season!
Every time I visit your site, I know I am going to get a fantastic recipe. You did not disappoint with this one. How delicious!
Thank you so much, Kelly!
This looks like a great recipe for this time of the year! I would dip apple slices in it!
I bet this would go fantastic on apple slices!
Oh now this is a dip I could love! I’m not much of a dipper, but this looks amazing.
This recipe was completely new to me and I wish that I would have known about this sooner! It’s so sweet and delish.
This looks amazing!! My kids love when we have dip for them to dip their crackers and their treats in, I need to try this out.
This is a great recipe for kids to dip! I hope you enjoy it!

How funny, I just made the same dip (pretty much) over the weekend for a party I went to.
What a coincidence! Great minds think alike, I guess!
What a fun idea, I could dip anything and everything into this delicious treat!
Sounds like a delicious idea to me!
Wow! Is this ever decadent. I think I would serve it with gingerbread men for dipping. 🙂
