Frequently Asked Questions

How can I scale this recipe to make it larger or smaller?

Doubling or halving this recipe is a breeze. For doubling, just make sure to mix in a big enough bowl, and give it a little extra time to chill. Halving it? Just split those measurements in two. But a quick tip: keep a close eye when mixing, as smaller amounts can blend quicker.

Does this dip need to be refrigerated?

Yes, due to the cream cheese in this recipe it does need to be refrigerated. It can be enjoyed straight out of the refrigerator and can sit at room temperature for up to 2 hours.

What do I serve this with?

As for what to dip into this creamy goodness? Vanilla wafers, fruits like strawberries or apple slices, cookies, and pretzels are top contenders. Each brings a unique texture and taste, elevating the dip experience. You can also pair it with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee for a complete treat.

What if I don’t have a mixer?

While mixers make the blending process swift and smooth, if you don’t have one, no worries! A sturdy spatula or a hand whisk will do the trick. Just ensure your ingredients are at room temperature for ease.

What if my dip is too thick? Too thin?

If your dip’s looking a bit too runny, no stress! You can add a sprinkle more of powdered sugar or let it chill in the fridge a bit longer. And hey, if it’s too thick, a splash of milk or a tad more melted butter can help. Cooking is all about rolling with the punches and making it your own.
