Cherry Cheesecake Dip

Is it just us, or does it seem like there’s been a recent resurgence of dessert dips cropping up more frequently at parties and potlucks? It seemed to us they’d kind of lost their luster, what with having to compete with elaborate cakes and other treats that look a little fancier, but the dessert dip is definitely back!

1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, room temperature
1 (8 oz.) package frozen whipped topping
1/2 (7.5 oz.) jar marshmallow creme
2 cups cherry pie filling
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Chocolate wafer cookies, nilla wafers, graham crackers, garnish

In a large bowl or mixer, cream together softened cream cheese and marshmallow creme for 2-3 minutes, or until blended and smooth, then mix in vanilla extract.
Gently fold in frozen whipped topping until incorporated.
Spread mixture into an even layer in a 8 or 9-inch square baking dish.
Top with an even layer of cherry pie filling.
