Tips for making Carrot Cake Dip:
Running short on time? This sweet, creamy carrot cart dip is for you! I suggest letting the cream cheese soften for a few hours prior to making and opt for the already chopped pecans in the baking section at your local grocer. The pecans will give the dip a nice crunch.
Combining the room temperature cream cheese, with the small amount of crumbled carrot cake, chopped pecans, powdered sugar, and other ingredients in your stand mixer, will have your senses going full speed ahead and your mouth watering.
This sweet Easter dip makes about 10 servings and it is easy to double or triple the recipe if needed for a larger crowd.
