Fruit Dip Recipe

Marshmallow Fruit Dip

[donotprint] Have you ever been to a party where the host served fruit with a gooey, sweetened cream?  Chances are you were eating fruit dip.  This creamy dip looks like whipped cream but is much sweeter, thicker, and denser.  This particular recipe is my go-to fruit dip recipe because its simple, easy, fast, and always popular at brunches, potlucks, and showers.  With Valentine’s Day just a few days away I thought I would share this great dessert idea you can pull together within minutes.  This recipe only requires two ingredients and perfectly pairs well with strawberries.  Enjoy!

Fruit Dip

Ingredients:

8oz package cream cheese, softened and room temperature

2 – 7oz jars marshmallow creme/fluff (I was able to buy 1-130z jar)

Directions:

Mix marshmallow creme and cream cheese together (by hand or mixer) until well combined.  Serve with your favorite fruit such as strawberries, cherries, bananas, pineapples, etc.  Enjoy!

We LOVE this recipe, but for a twist we put in a caramel/butterscotch ice cream topping! oh my gosh is it good!

Looks tasty! I’ve never tried anything other than chocolate, peanut butter, caramel or some combination thereof… but, I might have to try this.

Mmmmmm…delicious. My step mom used to make this same dip but then just mix in lots of green and purple grapes. So it was like a fruit dip grape salad…yum!

That dip is truly decadent! When I was a kid, we went to a restaurant called The Nut Tree and their version was just marshmallow creme and pineapple juice (enough to get to dip consistency). We thought we died and went to heaven when we had it – soooo exotic for us children in the 1970s…

I make this adding some grated orange rind and a bit of ground ginger. I have also added small amounts of various liquers.

Alas, a fruit dip! there are so many dips for vegetables but fruit gets left out!

YUM! I had always just mixed cream cheese with sour cream and powdered sugar, but I will try this. My daughter is having a Valentine tea party, this will be perfect to have at it!

I’m a big fan of the dip recipes; I use it as is but also add as an ingredient to lots of other things. I make this fruit dip only it has a little powdered sugar mixed in it too. I love strawberries and apples dipped in it!

Best Regards,

My mom always made this for me when I was a kid. I love to stir crushed pineapple into the dip and eat it with a spoon… just saying. :)

I once survived a evening in a tornado shelter in TX with this stuff. I hardly noticed the high winds and dirt circling outside the shelter!

Delish!! I’ve been making this dip for years!! But I cut up 3 or 4 strawberries and mix them in with an electric mixer till the dip is a nice pink and serve with strawberries. It’s a HUGE hit at parties.

love this dip, I have also made by adding cool whip to it as well………yummy, yummy in the tummy. I’m making a fruit arrangement, by skewering different fruits chunks or make small shapes using a cookie cutter and putting them in an Easter basket to display….you can use heads of lettuce for the bottom of the basket (or styrofoam)

This is soooo tasty. As an ‘experiment’, I added half a package of strawberry sugar free jello mix, and tried it with half a pack of Crystal Lite (or two singles) of the Kiwi-Strawberry drink mix. WOW! Now I just want to eat fruit – for the first time in my life I think I’m getting my two servings a day in. A tasty way to actually join the food pyramid!

I didn’t have marshmallow, so I used cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, pureed strawberries (just a couple), and a touch of light cream to get the right consistency. It was quite good!

If you don’t like one of only two ingredients-or maybe even both–why comment?! Go to another recipe!:(
