Party Panache, Halloween Candy Cheesecake Dip

Turn your leftover Halloween candy into an irresistible party dip!


HHjr brought me these Stacy’s Salted Caramel Pita Chips to try and there was a recipe for cheesecake dip on the bag

Halloween candy dip

Yes please!


Mix butter, cream cheese, vanilla, brown sugar and powdered sugar together


Yum.  You can use it like this or add any candy you want.  I added chopped Snickers because that’s what we had leftover…  One group of trick or treaters gave their candy back~

Yep, they gave me the candy back!

“We can’t have anything with nuts,” they said, as I gazed forlornly at my super cute treat bowl full of Snickers and Peanut M&Ms…I felt terrible!


“Mom, you can’t give out anything with nuts!” DD told me later… and I filled my bowl with clementines 🙁

This dip was delicious with the salted caramel pita chips, or you could use graham crackers, any thin cookie, or spread it on apple slices

It’s pretty good by the spoonful too!

    Oh my…Salted Caramel Pita Chips with your dip…I can’t imagine having leftover Snickers even with nut-allergy trick or treaters 🙂 Love your team spirit tree!

  3. Oh I am soooo going to have to try your dip! It sounds heavenly and it also sounds like it would go great with my coffee….lol

  4. Darling tree with lots of spirit.

    Amazing idea for dip. Thanks for the new flavor of Stacy’s pita chips. Self serve dessert for game watching is a great idea and served on your hand painted plate is perfect!

    Hope the game goes our way tonight.

  6. Stacy’s chips are crack. Seriously. SO it’s only fitting that you serve them with this crack dip! MAN does that look amazing. Thank you for linking up with #FoodieFridays. I hope you can join us this week with a new, tasty link up and see if you were featured! – Christie

  7. This dip sounds soooo good…it’s making me thinking about making a fast trip to the store before our game starts.
