This cinnamon walnut fruit dip brings together walnuts, cherries, apple pie spice and a touch of brown sugar to create a delightfully smooth, creamy dip perfect for fruit, carrot sticks, or graham crackers.
Probably my favorite way to enjoy this cinnamon walnut dip is on fresh pineapple or crisp apple slices. It’s a flavor explosion in your mouth that really satisfies the snack monster that lurks within! Haha
Cinnamon Walnut Fruit Dip Recipe
1 (8oz) pkg Cream Cheese
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
3 T. Walnuts, Chopped
1/4 c. Sour cream or vanilla greek yogurt
3/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of Apple Pie Spice
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
3 T. Dried Cherries, Chopped
Combine cream cheese and sour cream in a bowl and whip gently until smooth. Add the remaining ingredients, mixing well to incorporate. Chill at least 2 hours prior to serving for the flavors to meld together.
Serve with slices of apples, grapes, melon or pineapple chunks etc. Or use it as a spread on graham crackers, animal crackers or even butter crackers such as Ritz.
If you prefer more of a “Dip” consistency and less of a cheese ball consistency, add 1/2 c. sour cream OR 1/2 c. vanilla yogurt to the cream cheese, blending until smooth BEFORE adding remaining ingredients.
This recipe is one of our favorites for snacking & travels well in a small cooler.
