Ingredients You'll Need
This easy hot cocoa dip comes together in minutes with just a few ingredients. It's sweet, creamy, and totally delicious with cookies, sweet crackers, or fruit.
- Cream Cheese - Make sure to set it out ahead of time. Softened cream cheese is easier to beat into a light creamy dessert dip.
- Greek Yogurt - Adds a tang to the cheesecake dip.
- Marshmallow Cream - Sweetens the dip and adds a smooth, fluffy texture. It is usually sold in the baking aisle of most grocery stores near the marshmallows.
- Hot Chocolate Mix - It is hot chocolate dip after all. I like to use a dark chocolate mix for a rich and dark chocolate dip.
- Cool Whip - Makes it creamy and fluffy. Make this whipped cream from scratch, if you prefer that instead.
- Mini Marshmallows and Peppermint Bits - Extra toppings make it so fun and delicious.
How to make Hot Chocolate Dip
This chocolate dip recipe is seriously so easy to make. You can have it mixed and ready to devour in 5 minutes. And it's even easier to eat. Trust me. This dessert dip will disappear before you know it!

Yes. This is a great hot chocolate dessert to make 1-2 days ahead of time. Just keep the finished chocolate dip in a covered container in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
