Apricot cream cheese dip? Doesn’t sound too appealing, does it? You are in for a surprise! This apricot cream cheese dip is to die for. I mean it is that good!
Several years ago, my family decided to have our family Christmas the weekend after Christmas due to the fact that I had major surgery on December 15th of that year.
We decided to have an easy menu so soups, sandwiches and chips, crackers and dips it was. My daughter made this amazing apricot cream cheese dip and I was hooked. For many weeks after that, I craved this dip. So she gave me the recipe.
And I made this dip every week for a couple of weeks. I halved the recipe tho. The full recipe was too much for just me without it going bad before I could get it all eaten.
If you need a dip in a hurry for unexpected guests. No problem. This apricot cream cheese dip comes together in 10 minutes.
What Is Cream Cheese?
Cream cheese is made from cow’s milk and cream. It is a soft cheese with a sweet and slightly tangy taste. This is what Wikipedia says.
If you don’t have time to cook bacon, you can substitute Hormel real bacon bits. My daughter prefers to cook the bacon but I have to admit I have used the prepackaged real bacon bits/pieces.
If you have been reading my posts/articles then you are aware that if there is an easy way, I’m going to find it!
As I have stated before, nothing wrong with easy or simple as long as it tastes good.
I know the recipe states just the green portions of the green onions. But I have to be honest here. I did go a little crazy with the chopping and accidentally got some of the white portions into the dip.
Honestly, it really didn’t hurt as it was just a little but the onion taste was just a little stronger. So it really comes down to your taste!
Every good recipe needs to be shared so others can enjoy it also! So here it is!

The combination of the sweet apricot preserves with the tangy cream cheese, smokey bacon, green onions, and garlic work to make one tasty dip. If you have never tried this dip I encourage you to give it a try. Who knows it just may become a favorite of yours. I hope so anyway!
