The Best Christmas Tree Dip

You know those amazingly delicious Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes? Picture them in a delicious cream cheese/cool whip dip! Christmas Tree Dip is THE dip you need to be snacking on leading up to Christmas. I originally saw this on Tik Tok and obviously had to try it. The original was a little too sweet so I made a couple little changes. Scroll down for the best Christmas Tree Dip.

The Best Christmas Tree Dip

Ingredients:

  • 2 boxes of Little Debbie Christmas Tree Cakes (if your stores are sold out, click here to get a 2 pack on Amazon).
  • 8 oz cream cheese (room temp)
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1 container Cool Whip
  • sprinkles (optional)

The Best Christmas Tree Dip

Directions:

  1. Unwrap the Christmas Tree Cakes and break up in smaller pieces, putting in a large bowl.
  2. Add in the cream cheese and milk then blend together.
  3. Fold in the Cool Whip.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl and top with sprinkles.
  5. If not eating right away, or you want to save leftovers, put in a container and freeze.
  6. Serve with some things for dipping. I got some cute snowman graham crackers from Aldi. I also like to serve it with sliced apples, or pretzels.

This is Buddy the Elf’s Christmas Snack Mix. It’s filled with the flavors of maple syrup crunchies, marshmallows, candy canes from the candy cane forest and chocolate candy M&Ms’s.

Anyone who has watched Elf or has an affinity for elf culture knows that syrup and candy make up a majority of an elf’s diet.  And this holiday snack mix has it all! It’s the perfect little snack to munch on while having a Christmas movie marathon or gift to friends in little mason jars.

What is in Buddy the Elf’s Christmas snack mix?

  • Maple syrup flavored goldfish crackers (these are a special edition you can only find for the holidays and it will fill your snack mix with the aroma of Buddy’s favorite maple syrup!)
  • Pretzels covered in white chocolate and crushed candy canes from the candy cane forest
  • M&M’s because candy, duh!
  • Chow mein noodles just like Buddy’s famous spaghetti.

Ingredients:

  • 1 package Elf edition maple syrup flavored goldfish crackers (linking them on Amazon here)

Directions:

1.) Line a baking sheet with some parchment paper and lay out the pretzels.

2.) In the microwave melt the white chocolate chips.

3.) Using a spoon or fork, drizzle the white chocolate over the pretzels.

4.) Sprinkle the crushed candy canes on top of the white chocolate pretzels immediately while the chocolate is still warm then allow to cool.
