This easy Cranberry Cream Cheese Dip comes just in time for the upcoming holidays. I’m sure this appetizer will impress your family and friends.
This cranberry cream cheese dip is homemade and is so freaking delicious!
CRANBERRY CREAM CHEESE DIP
Is a very special kind of dip that cannot be found in the stores.
If you do find it, I’m sure it won’t be fresh like this stuff.
Trust me, it is so worth making yourself.
And takes less than 30 minutes and can store in your fridge for up to 2 days easily.
Now you can also decide to not stir in the cream cheese and just serve the cranberries onto of the cream cheese as you will see below.
I like to do this also at times, certainly will depend on how you are deciding to present this to your guests I suppose.
Or if this is all just for you, then you can really have it either way!
It’s HEAVEN ON A BAGEL if you ask me
HOW TO MAKE CRANBERRY CREAM CHEESE DIP
To make this dip you will want to start with fresh cranberries or frozen cranberries.
Then you will cook them down and add all renaming ingredients.
Once that has been made, simply set aside and allow the cranberries to cool.
Stir them into your plain cream cheese and your ready to enjoy!
