The holiday season is so busy, I love easy recipes to help me make our special events feel extra festive. I think this is the best Little Debbie Christmas tree dip recipe because:

  2. Just 5 Minutes: This is so quick and easy to make.
  3. REAL Little Debbie Cakes: Yes, they are actually IN the dip!

Ingredients

A box of Little Debbie Christmas Tree cakes is on the counter next to the ingredients to turn it into a dip.

This sweet and easy dessert needs just a handful of ingredients:

  • Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes: Yep! These cakes are actually mixed right into the dip!
  • Cream Cheese
  • Whipped Topping (Cool Whip)
  • Vanilla Extract
  • Milk
  • Christmas Sprinkles for garnish

Make the Cream Cheese Base

To get the smoothest dip, start by adding the softened cream cheese, milk, and vanilla extract to a large mixing bowl.

Beat them together with a hand mixer until smooth.

The first ingredients are in a mixing bowl about to be stirred together.

Add the thawed whipped topping and mix it into the cream cheese base.

The whipped topping has been added to the bowl.

Add the Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes

Finally, add the Little Debbie Christmas tree cakes right to the cream cheese base.

Beat them in with the hand mixer until they are completely broken up and well combined into the dip.

You will still have chunks of cake in the dip, it will not be totally smooth. This is what makes it so incredibly delicious.

The Little Debbie Christmas Tree cakes are in the mixing bowl about to be blended in.

If you plan to garnish the dip with more sprinkles, do not add them to the dip until just before serving or the colors will bleed into the white base.

Make Ahead Tips

While you could serve the dip right away, I actually think it tastes best once it has had a chance to let the flavors mingle in the fridge for 1 hour.

This makes it an excellent make ahead Christmas dessert. Store it in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

For the prettiest serving, scrape the dip into your serving dish and keep covered with plastic wrap. Once it chills, it is harder to spoon into a nice container for serving.

Serving Suggestions

Once the Little Debbie Christmas tree cakes are whipped into the dip, it becomes a gorgeous stark white dessert.

To add a touch of Christmas flair, sprinkle festive sprinkles over the top just before serving alongside vanilla cookies for dunking. For even more color, consider serving fresh strawberries, red grapes, or even raspberries on the dessert board.

This would make an adorable Christmas Eve dessert or Christmas potluck treat to bring to a party.
