What is Cherry Pie Dip?

Cherry pie dip is essentially a no-bake dessert dip.

Instead it’s a delicious blend of cherry pie filling, cool whip, and other creamy ingredients. 

Think of it kind of like a cherry pie base base, but in an easily scoopable form.

What Ingredients are in Cherry Pie Dip?

This delicious recipe is one of my favorite things to make! It’s so easy to throw together and only needs the following ingredients:

  • Cherry Pie Filling: This gives the dip its sweet, fruity essence.
  • Crushed Pineapple: Adds a tropical twist and natural sweetness.
  • Sweetened Condensed Milk: Provides the creamy consistency and sugary goodness.
  • Cool Whip: Brings in a fluffy texture.
  • Graham Crackers: Perfect for dipping and crunch!

Pro Tip: For a twist, you can also add marshmallow fluff or a cream cheese base to add a thicker consistency.

What to Serve with Cherry Pie Dip?

If you are looking for other appetizer recipes to create a snack bar, we recommend you try one of these…

Is Cherry Pie Dip an Appetizer or Dessert?

All that sweetness means that creamy dip pretty much falls directly under the dessert category.

However, you can totally add it to the appetizer table too!

I guess it just depends on whether you like to eat something sweet before or after dinner. Or both! Honestly, I think both is the best option.

When to Serve Cherry Pie Dip?

It’s the perfect make ahead dessert! You can use it for baby showers, Valentine’s day, dinner parties, or just a simple school snack. 

Honestly, any time you’re craving something sweet and easy!

And late night snacking… while I’m pretty sure it’s not a health recommendation…it is mine!

After the kids have gone to bed, and you finally get to eat whatever you want without any interruptions? Cherry cool whip dip is exactly what you need!

How to Store Leftover Cherry Pie Dip?

First, this easy recipe should always be kept refrigerated. You serve it cold, you keep it cold. That way it’ll stay good longer.

You should also always keep leftovers in an airtight container. That helps the dip remain fresh and not spoil quickly.  

Not to mention it could dry out and lose its creamy consistency!

It should stay good in the fridge for a couple of days.

Can You Freeze Cherry Pie Dip?

You actually can freeze this cherry pie filling dip! It’s super easy to pull out and have ready to go that way whenever you need it.

First, wrap it in plastic wrap and store in an airtight container. 

Then when you’re ready to enjoy it again, thaw it in the fridge for a few hours.

Don’t forget to write the name of the recipe and the date you froze it on the container. That way you won’t lose it in the freezer.

Can Dogs Eat Cherry Pie Dip?

No, it’s best to avoid giving cherry fruit dip to dogs. 

Dogs really don’t digest things the same way that humans do.

Many ingredients( especially the sweetened condensed milk and cherry pie filling) can be really hard on our furry friends.

It’s best to always serve them food that is made just for them.
