Tips to Make the Autumn Sprinkles Cookie Dip
This cookie dip may be insanely easy to make, but it always helps to have a few tips and tricks up your sleeve to nail the recipe.
- Make sure your cream cheese and butter are both at room temperature before you beat them together. This will help prevent any lumps, and will also get your cookie dip to have that nice and fluffy texture.
- If you can, allow the dip to refrigerate overnight. This will help it set and will let the flavors develop.
- To keep your fat intake in check, you can opt for a low-fat variety of cream cheese too.
- If you want your dip to have a more intense, rich flavor, you can use brown sugar instead of white sugar.
