The best part might be that it should only take about five minutes to whip this up for your guests. Plus, the recipe for this velvety dip calls for just a handful of ingredients, and you might already have them in the refrigerator and pantry.

This dip gets its creaminess from yogurt and cream cheese. The decorations that make it holiday-appropriate are up to you. You can add red and green sprinkles on top for a Christmas party or blue and white for a Hannukah celebration. Another option: Keep it simple and elegant with white or silver sprinkles or even edible gold glitter spray.


Arrange this concoction on a holiday party tray with dip-worthy fruit, cookies, graham crackers and pretzels. No one will ever guess that this dip took you just five minutes to prepare!

If you want to try another variation of a cookie-dip recipe, consider this Sugar Cookie Dough Dip option from Yellow Bliss Road. It calls for a pre-made sugar cookie mix, along with cream cheese and sweetened coffee creamer, and it’s super easy to put together.

The nice thing about this recipe is that it would be easy to play with flavors to customize your dip. For example, you could use gingerbread cookie mix to give it a ginger kick or pumpkin spice coffee creamer for some last-bit-of-fall flavor.

And best of all, if you have leftovers, this stores easily in the fridge. So it’s perfect for a snack, either when the kids bring friends home or for sharing at an office lunch. For ideal dipping, open a box of graham crackers and slice up some seasonal fruits, such as pears or apples. Enjoy!
