WHAT IS FRUIT DIP MADE OF?
- marshmallow fluff
- cream cheese
Marshmallow Fluff – also knows as marshmallow cream, it’s basically spreadable marshmallow! Who doesn’t need this in their life?!
Cream Cheese – All the best dips start with cream cheese. Feel free to use the reduced fat or fat free versions. I like to use cream cheese that is made with Greek yogurt to balance out the sweetness.
HOW TO MAKE FRUIT DIP
STEP ONE: Soften or bring the cream cheese to room temperature for easier mixing.
STEP TWO: In a bowl, beat cream cheese and marshmallow creme using a hand mixer or stand mixer until smooth and creamy.
STEP THREE: Transfer to a serving bowl and enjoy or store in the refrigerator until ready to serve. Enjoy!
HOW DO YOU THICKEN IT?
This dip will be thick due to the cream cheese, if it isn’t thick enough for you though you can add another half block of cream cheese.
WHAT TO DIP IN IT
You can serve any fruit you want with it, just wash it well and dry all the way before dipping. It is also great with vanilla wafers, pretzels, and graham crackers.
CAN I MAKE FRUIT DIP IN ADVANCE?
This dip is a great recipe to make ahead and keep in the refrigerator, if it needs it just use your hand mixer again to fluff it up a little after sitting.
CAN I FREEZE IT?
You can freeze this cream cheese fruit dip, you will want to let it thaw completely and fluff with a hand mixer when you’re ready to serve.
TAPAS TIPS & TRICKS
- for a richer vanilla flavor add a tablespoon of brown sugar or a teaspoon of vanilla extract. Use clear vanilla as not to change the color of the dip.
- too rich? add a splash of lemon juice or orange juice to balance out the flavors.
- You want to change up the color and flavor a little? Add a packet of pudding or jello and mix well with the cream cheese before mixing in the marshmallow cream.
- Add chocolate chips for an additional flavor and a little bit different texture.
