Freezing dips with cream cheese requires use of a heavy cream mixture, tightly wrapped storage container and a consistent freezer temperature. Failure to correctly follow a freezing procedure will result in the cream cheese becoming dry and crumbly once thawed.
The following instructions explain how to properly freeze and store cream cheese products.
- Use a sealed container
- Wrap the container
- Date it
- Store in a consistent environment
Place the dip into a sealed container.
Use clear plastic to tightly wrap the container and prevent moisture from entering or escaping.
Write the date on the container. Cream cheese should not be stored for more than five months.
Store the container on or near the freezers middle shelf to keep the unit at a consistent temperature.
