There are only 6 simple ingredients in this easy dessert. Full amounts are in the printable recipe card below.

  • Cream cheese — I use full fat cream cheese at room temperature

  • Cool Whip — Make sure it is completely thawed.
  • Food coloring — just a little green gel food coloring is needed for the light green color.
  • Peppermint extract — for flavor
  • Mini chocolate chips — I use semi sweet chocolate

How to Make Mint Chocolate Chip Cheesecake Dip

All you do is mix the cream cheese until soft and creamy. Then, mix in the powdered sugar, peppermint extract and food coloring. You can use an electric hand mixer or stand mixer for this.

Next, use a rubber spatula to fold in the whipped topping and mini chips. And that’s all there is to making this delicious dessert! You can transfer the dip to a serving bowl and serve it right away or refrigerate it for later.

Favorite Dippers

We love to serve this dip with mint Oreos to double the minty flavor. Regular Oreo cookies are also good. Vanilla wafer cookies, animal crackers, graham crackers or chocolate graham crackers and fresh fruit — especially fresh strawberries — also pair well with the dip.

Store the creamy mint cheesecake dip in an airtight container or covered with plastic wrap in your refrigerator for 3-4 days. You can prepare it a day or 2 ahead of time. Just be sure not to leave the dip out at room temperature for more than 2 hours for safety.

Substitutions and Tips

While you can use heavy whipping cream to make homemade whipped cream in place of Cool Whip, the dip won’t be as fluffy.

Make sure Cool Whip is fully thawed before using. Also, gently fold it in with a spatula and not an electric mixer so that it will stay nice and fluffy.

You can use either peppermint extract or mint extract here. If you want to use peppermint oil, you will to use a lot less that the recipe calls for as it is very strong.
