I've had this white cream cheese frosting sitting in my fridge for weeks, leftover from cupcakes I made awhile back. I never know what to do with leftover frosting. I usually end up eating spoonfuls of the stuff every time I find myself in the kitchen. Never a good thing. This time, in an effort to avoid eating half a can of frosting to myself, I decided I would get creative and use it for a dip...and maybe even share it with my kids. :)
Chocolate Candy Cane Dip
1 cup white cream cheese frosting
1 cup whipped topping
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa
5 small candy canes
sponge cake for dipping
First thing I did was make the whipped topping according to the directions on the package. You could just use Cool Whip for this as well instead of making it from a mix.
Mix one cup of whipped topping with one cup of cream cheese frosting, and 2 Tbsp of cocoa. I used my electric beater for this part.
Now stir in the crushed candy canes with a spoon. I used about 5 of the small sized candy canes. Leave a little of the crushed candy cane to sprinkle on top.
Transfer the dip to a small bowl and sprinkle with crushed candy cane.
Add some sponge cake, or graham crackers for dipping!
My kids barely saved me any. It's actually quite a miracle I got a picture of this before their little hands got a hold of it.
This would also be a great dish to bring to a holiday potluck party. Enjoy!
