Dessert Dip Tips
This is such an easy dip to make for Christmas parties! Here are some tips that will help you make it even better.
Let Dip Chill for One Hour
Technically, you could serve this dip immediately, but I find that it is best after one hour of chill time in the fridge. That allows the flavors to mix. While one hour is a good chill time, I would not chill overnight. The texture gets a little muddy after too many hours.
Gently fold the cakes and sprinkles in
You want to use a spatula and gently fold in the cakes, not use the mixer for this part. You want to leave a little texture from the cake in the dip, not mix it to smooth and creamy. Make sure to set one tree cake aside to use as garnish before serving.
What to dip into a dessert dip?
There are a lot of great dippers but my favorites are pretzels and graham crackers. If you like a mix of sweet and salty, then definitely go with the pretzels! You can use pretzel sticks or the little square pretzels for easy dipping. If you want something sweeter, vanilla wafers are also a great choice and are hearty enough to stand up to the dipping.
If you want a unique dessert recipe that takes less than five minutes, then this Christmas Tree Cake Dip is the perfect recipe for you! Perfect for any entertaining occasion, your guests will love this dessert dip recipe!
