Cheesecake and red velvet lovers, get ready for this amazing red velvet cheesecake cake dip! Rich and creamy and the perfect compliment to a graham cracker, marshmallow, cookie or even a spoon.

I first fell in love with Cheesecake dip when I whipped up this Blueberry Cheesecake Dip for the very first time. But this Red Velvet flavor seriously takes the cake. It has been a huge hit with my family and friends.

Thinking of something sweet for your Valentine? No doubt, this Red Velvet Cheesecake Dip will do the trick. Funfetti dip is another amazing option as well!

Why You Will Love This Red Velvet Dip:

  • It’s so easy to make! All you need is a handful of ingredients and about ten minutes to whip up this recipe. You can even use Cool Whip instead of beating the whipping cream to cut down the time!
  • A perfect party treat. This sweet dip is obviously a great Valentine’s Day party recipe, or Galentine’s Day, whatever you celebrate. However, it is also great at any party to add to the sweet treats. We like to make it for the Super Bowl since it usually falls close to Valentine’s day as well.
  • Kid friendly. I find this dip to be a favorite of adults as well as kids. Everyone wins when that happens. Kids love the fun color and all the dipper options.
  • So much fun for lots of dippers! There is really no end to the options. We make up a sort of dessert charcuterie board with this dip and include graham crackers, pretzels, chocolates, marshmallows and more!

Recipe Ingredients:

  • heavy whipping cream: while you could use cool whip in this red velvet dip, I think heavy whipping cream is hands down the way to go. It provides a silky smooth texture with real whipped cream flavor.
  • cream cheese: a block of cream cheese, softened. Full fat cream cheese will provide the richest flavor, but another type will still work as well such as low fat or nonfat. Make sure to use block cream cheese for this recipe for best results.
  • sugar: a touch to sweeten it up a bit
  • powdered sugar: this is a common ingredient in no bake cheesecake to help sweeten and make it more sturdy. You can adjust the amount based on desired sweetness for sure!
  • vanilla: vanilla extract rounds out the flavor, use real vanilla versus imitation if possible
  • cocoa powder: unsweetened cocoa powder is a key ingredient to bring out the rich chocolate flavor for this red velvet cake dip. If you want a richer chocolate flavor, you can use melted chocolate chips. Just add the same amount of chocolate chips as the recipe calls for in cocoa powder and then melt in the microwave. Beat into the cream cheese mixture at the same time you would add the cocoa powder!
  • food coloring: Adjust the red food coloring to make it super rich in color or not so rich. I add in more in the end to really bring the color out as well. I know there are natural food colorings out there so feel free to opt for those. Fun fact: red velvet cakes were originally given their color from beetroot so have at it if that’s your pleasure!

Step-By-Step Instructions:

  • Beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks start to form using an electric hand or stand mixer. For best results use very cold heavy cream. This will create a nice creamy, thick whipped cream.
  • In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese, sugar and powdered sugar until smooth and creamy.
  • Add in the cocoa powder, food coloring and vanilla and beat to mix in. Careful, the cocoa powder may spray up at you. Stir it in a bit with a spoon first to keep that from happening.
  • Gently fold the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture until combined. Add in extra food coloring for a stronger red color.
  • Transfer to a medium serving bowl. Top with sprinkles and white chocolate chips if desired and chill until ready to serve.

Recipe Tips:

  • You can skip the food coloring if desired. No food coloring? Don’t like using food dye? Just skip it! You will have a delicious chocolate cheesecake dip instead of red velvet! It will still be delicious. You can use natural food coloring as well if preferred.
  • Set this dip out for about 10 minutes before serving. This will soften it slightly and make it perfect for dipping.
  • Feel free to add in something extra in the dip. Stir in some white chocolate chips, sprinkles, chocolate chips, and so much more.

Dipper Options:

The obvious ways to enjoy this delicious dessert dip is with all of the classic dipping foods. Use your fave dippers, but also think outside the box!

  • graham crackers (chocolate grahams too!)
  • marshmallows
  • shortbread cookies or Biscoff cookies
  • pretzels or pretzel chips
  • vanilla wafers
  • piece of chocolate
  • strawberries or other berries
  • Oreos–any flavor! golden Oreos are great
  • biscotti
  • dates or dried apricots
  • animal crackers

This dip can be frozen. Store it in an airtight freezer safe container for up to 3 months. Thaw it completely in the refrigerator before serving. A freezer bag can also be used for storing.
