Little Debbie snack cakes and I have a history.

I adore them.

In all flavors and varieties. I’ve been enjoying them as long as I can remember.

And while yes, I do love them all, the Christmas tree cakes are the absolute best.

Kind of like how the Reese’s trees and pumpkins are far and away better than the standard peanut butter cups.

What is Christmas Tree Cake Dip?

Basically it’s a cream cheese and cake based dessert made famous thanks to Tik Tok.

You might have also heard this called Christmas tree Christmas dip.

It’s the same delicious thing.

Ever had dunkaroo dip? It’s just like that, except this version tastes like a Christmas tree cake.

While it seems like it might’ve been made up by some crazy sugar-loving genius, it’s actually a concoction from the Little Debbie company themselves.

The original recipe can be found on their website.

Ingredients

To make this festive treat, you’ll need:

  • Little Debbie Christmas tree cakes– While I show it with vanilla, you can absolutely use the chocolate tree cakes if you want.
  • Cream cheese– Let it come to room temperature prior to making.
  • Milk
  • Vanilla
  • Whipped topping– Like Cool Whip or the store brand version of this. Make sure it is thawed prior to use.
  • Sprinkles– Red and green are the most festive but use any kind you want.
  • Dippers– Anything you want to dip into this!

How to Make

Part of the appeal of this dessert is how easy it is to put together.

To do it, unwrap all the cakes and set one aside for garnish.

Then, roughly chop the unwrapped cakes to more or less make cubes and add them to a mixing bowl along with the cream cheese, milk and vanilla.

Then whip them together with a hand mixer until the mixture is smooth.

You DO NOT have to chop the cakes up ahead of time, I just prefer doing it that way.

I think its yields a smoother overall texture.

Once the mixture is smooth, transfer it to a serving bowl and cover it with plastic wrap.

Then pop it in the refrigerator to chill.

When you are ready to serve the dip, remove it from the fridge and uncover it.

Finish it by topping it with red and green sprinkles and enjoy!

Dipper Ideas

You can dip anything you like into it.

Some of my favorite dippers are:

  • graham crackers
  • cookies- especially sugar cookies or chocolate chip cookies
  • pretzels
  • strawberries, fresh melon- like cantaloupe or honey dew, sliced apples, grapes, etc

Storing

Store any leftover dip in a bowl wrapped in plastic in the fridge for up to 4 days.

Tips and Tricks

  • Want to switch the flavor up? You can use chocolate tree cakes for a different flavor.
  • Make sure the whipped cream topping is thawed prior to use.
  • Let the cream cheese soften by setting it out on the counter prior to making this.
  • To really add to the cake flavor, use an extra half box of cakes. 
  • Chopping the trees before adding to the mixing bowl is important for a smoother texture/finish.

    1. It’s shown in the video, and I double checked it’s mentioned in the recipe card to be folded in after whipping all the other ingredients together. I refer to it as ‘whipped topping’ though!

    1. Their regular snack cakes, like zebra cakes make a perfect substitute. Also, you can switch to another seasonal cake- like the heart shaped valentine one’s in February for example, if you want to give it a spin for different holidays.
