If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you might think that Easter Chocolate Cheesecake Dip looks suspiciously like my popular Halloween Graveyard Chocolate Cheesecake Dip, and you would be right! The only thing I did is replace the Halloween candy on top with Easter candy. You could do the same thing for other holidays as well.

Easter Chocolate Cheesecake Dip only has a few ingredients and even fewer steps. I’ll show you step by step how this bunnylicious dip comes together. The ingredients include cream cheese, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, milk, unsalted butter, light brown sugar, kosher salt, and confectioners powdered sugar. Garnishes include Oreo cookies or other chocolate sandwich cookies for the dirt, assorted Easter candy and optional green decorating icing or edible Easter grass. You will also need graham crackers, vanilla wafers, gingersnaps or apple slices for dipping.
When you are ready to make this delicious dip, gather your ingredients and add the softened cream cheese and butter to a mixing bowl. Using your electric mixer with the paddle attachment, beat until smooth. Add cocoa powder and beat until it is incorporated.
Add brown sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and milk. Beat until the mixture is smooth. Sift in powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating after each addition. Once all powdered sugar has been incorporated, turn your mixer to high and beat until the mixture is light and creamy.
Transfer mixture to a small serving dish and smooth the top.
Put whole Oreo cookies in a heavy-duty plastic storage bag and using the heel of your hand, or a rolling pin gently crush the cookies until they are in small pieces. (Don’t worry about the icing, it will incorporate into the crumbs.)
Spread the crushed Oreos over the top of the dip evenly to form the dirt.* If you wish, use a small tube of green icing and a grass piping tip, pipe small tufts of grass on the top.
Decorate with your favorite Easter candy.
Serve with graham crackers, gingersnaps, vanilla wafers or apple slices.
*This dip may be made ahead and stored covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. If you are making ahead, wait to add the grass and candy until you are ready to serve the dip.
