If you are in need of a quick dish for a special event or holiday meal, or just craving a special treat, let me introduce you to Fluffy Marshmallow Cream Cheese Fruit Dip. I promise you will become best friends very quickly. The fact that you only need 2 ingredients and 5 minutes to whip up a batch of this fluffy, creamy goodness will truly make you smile.
I first tried this yummy deliciousness years ago while visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. It was love at first bite! I have to admit I was a bit surprised when my mother-in-law, RaVae, revealed the ingredients – such an unlikely duo but it definitely works. The slightly tart cream cheese balances the sweet marshmallow creme perfectly, and also keeps it from being overly sweet.
I like to make this dish for holiday dinners and other special events because it elevates a simple fruit tray into something special. I have to admit this also makes a special after school treat for the kiddos, too. This fruit dip pairs well with most fruits, but our favorites are apples, pears, strawberries and grapes.
8 oz. cream cheese (regular or reduced fat), softened
7 oz. marshmallow creme
1. Combine the softened cream cheese and marshmallow creme in a medium-size bowl.
2. Beat on medium speed until smooth.
3. Refrigerate until chilled (1-2 hours).
4. Serve with your favorite fruits.
Work Smarter: Sometimes the right tools can make or break your cooking experience. These are the tools I used to make quick work of this recipe:
Hand mixer – This cherry red mixer WILL be mine (as soon as my current mixer bites the dust – ha!).
Spatula – I use at least one of these every day.
