Strawberry Cheesecake Batter Dip

Cheesecake.  It's rich, creamy, smooth and such an indulgent dessert.  It's one of the most iconic dishes in the dessert scene.  There's even a certain renowned restaurant in New York that's known for it's "Most Fabulous" cheesecakes.  It's a staple in American cuisine, as well as others.

There's an art to the humble cheesecake.  But once you've mastered the basics, the options are truly endless.  From topping it with delicious, fresh fruits to adding in seasonal flavors and everything in between.

But, let's face it, sometimes there's not enough time in the day for a cheesecake.  Let it bake, remove it and let it sit (untouched) for at least 2 hours before serving.  Sometimes that's not possible in our busy lives, and well, just plain torture if we do find the time to make an amazing, showstopper of a dessert.

So, what's one to do whey they are craving that rich, creamy goodness of a cheesecake but there's just not enough hours left in the day?  Well, the next best thing of course.  Delicious, indulgent cheesecake batter dip!

Folks, we're talking everything. single. thing. you LOVE about cheesecake.  The tangy-ness.  The rich, creamy smoothness.  The flavor.  Yes, all of it.  But, without the 3+ hour prep, baking and resting period.

This dip.  Yes, dip.  Gives you everything you could possibly want in a matter of about 10 minutes.  I love this dip, not only because it gives me my sweet fix in a matter of minutes, but also because it's so versatile.  You can make a traditional cheesecake batter dip, but you can also customize the flavors and colors according to your preference or event!

This strawberry cheesecake batter dip is not only pretty, it's amazing and packed full of that incredible strawberry flavor.  A few simple ingredients, that are probably staples in your pantry.  A cream cheese base, along with sour cream for a little tang, strawberry cake mix to add a pretty pink color as well as sweet strawberry flavor.  Powdered sugar is added to sweeten it up a bit, and to thicken the dip and the folded in whipped cream allows for a creamy, light texture.
This is what desserts are all about.  It's tasty, as well as pretty.  The best part about it, it's super quick so you can throw it together when you want something sweet without turning on the oven, and you can assemble it quickly to help entertain those unexpected guests.

Go ahead, make it.  You know you want to!
