Last minute guests? Party invitation on a work night? Cheesecake cravings without the time to make a cheesecake? I have the perfect solution for you. This recipe makes a party or snack time dessert dip in only five minutes.
6-8oz Sweetened condensed milk
8oz cream cheese
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2Tbs lemon juice (or the juice of a small to medium lemon)
Graham Cracker Crumbs (optional)
Combine cream cheese, condensed milk, 1tsp vanilla extract, 1Tbs of lemon juice and beat with a mixer. Taste the dip and adjust additives as necessary until it tastes like your ideal cheesecake (add more lemon of vanilla to taste). Beat until smooth. If you plan to serve with fruit, sprinkle graham cracker crumbs on top.
Dip works well with fruit, graham crackers, nilla wafers, chocolate flavored wafers and even chocolate. You can use regular cream cheese and condensed milk of the fat free variety, both work equally well. To make a smoother dip use room temperature cream cheese and refridgerate for 30 minutes afterward.
