Graveyard Chocolate Cheesecake Dip only has a few ingredients and even fewer steps. I’ll show you step by step how this spooktacular 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, black decorating icing, Milano cookies or another oval vanilla cookie, candy corn and pumpkins. You will also need graham crackers, vanilla wafers, gingersnaps or apple slices for dipping.
If you are ready to make this yummy dip, gather your ingredients and start by adding cream cheese and butter to a medium size bowl. Using your electric mixer, 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. Use a small tube of black decorating icing to write the words “RIP” on the Milano cookies and insert them into the dip to form “tombstones.” Scatter candy corn and or candy pumpkins around and add googly eyes if you have them.
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 Milano cookies, candy corn, and pumpkins until you are ready to serve.
