If you’re thinking this dip might be too sweet, think again. The cream cheese balances the sweet marshmallow creme perfectly and provides just the right amount of tang to keep it from being overly sweet.

I first tried this yummy deliciousness many years ago, while visiting my in-laws in Minnesota. And let me tell you – it was love at first bite!

I have to admit that I was skeptical when my mother-in-law, RaVae, revealed the ingredients. How could such a weird combination of ingredients taste so good?

As strange as the combination sounds, it definitely works in this dish. In fact, it’s so good you’ll be licking the spoon (or the bowl – no judgement here!).

Whether you’re hosting a holiday meal, planning a party or craving a special treat, this simple fruit dip is sure to be the star of the menu.

Marshmallow Fluff Fruit Dip Ingredients

Fruit Dip with Marshmallow Fluff Variations and Substitutions

  • You can make this recipe with light cream cheese for a lower calorie version.
  • Make a pink, berry flavored fruit dip by substituting with strawberry marshmallow fluff. 
  • Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract for a richer flavor.
  • Add 1-2 teaspoons of orange or lemon zest for a burst of citrus flavor.

Lori’s Tip for Making this Recipe:

  • For easier blending, make sure the cream cheese and marshmallow cream are at room temperature before starting. This will ensure you get a smoother, fluffier dip without small clumps of cream cheese.

Best Dippers for Classic Marshmallow Fruit Dip

This sweet dip recipe pairs well with most firm fruits. You can also include it with a fruit tray or charcuterie board. And it’s reallllly good on a spoon (just saying!).

These are a few of our favorite fresh fruits and other dippers:

  • sliced apples
  • strawberries
  • pear slices
  • pineapple spears
  • grapes
  • vanilla wafers
  • graham crackers

Serving Suggestions for Marshmallow Fluff Dip

We think anytime is a good time to eat the best fruit dip evahhhh. But if you have to narrow it down, these are some of our recommendations:

  • Holiday dinners – this recipe is one of our “must haves” for ALL holiday meals.
  • Special events like birthday parties, baby showers and bridal showers. 
  • Transfer the fruit dip to a pretty serving bowl to elevate a simple fruit tray into something special.
  • Don’t forget potlucks – I come home with an empty bowl every single time. I’m telling you, everyone loves this dip!
  • Makes a sweet addition to a snack charcuterie board.
  • Use softened dip like a frosting on brownies.
  • Serve with a breakfast charcuterie board and use as a spread for cinnamon rolls, French toast and waffles.
  • I have also served it as after school snacks for the kiddos a time or two. I love watching their faces light up when they walk through the door and see a fruit platter with their favorite marshmallow cream cheese fruit dip on the table. Gotta score those Mom-points when we can, right?!

Can I make fluffy marshmallow cream cheese fruit dip ahead of time?

Yes! You can make this delicious dip 1-2 days ahead of time. Give it a quick stir to fluff it up before serving.

How to Store Leftover Marshmallow Fluff Fruit Dip with Cream Cheese

Transfer leftover fruit dip to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 5-6 days (but it will be eaten long before that!). I think it tastes best and is easier to dip into if it’s allowed to soften at room temperature for 20-30 minutes before serving.

  1. could you use a lemon instead of orange and would you need extract? also. would you add sugar?

    1. Yes, lemon works well with this recipe. If you want to up the lemony flavor you could add a couple drops of lemon extract. I don’t add extra sugar.

  2. As the contributor promises this is amazing. My family has dipped almost any fruit in it and the flavor always delivers. Now I’m thinking I might have to try it with both soft and hard pretzels for that sweet salty play. Yum. The only people I wouldn’t recommend it to are diabetics. You can’t stop after a taste, so they maybe better off resisting.

  3. I add cinnamon when i make this… such a lovely flavor. And i’ve used it to ice carrot cakes 🙂

  4. I haven’t made this in forever and was glad I revisited this recipe. I ate mostly this and fruit for dinner while hosting a party…SO and guests loved it too.

  5. when you get ready to serve the dip and it is not fluffy anymore what do i do to make it fluffy?

  6. For an adult version try a little amaretto…it is delicious. Took it to my cousin’s 60th birthday party everyone loved it

  7. I tryed it with vanilla extract it was delicious. Gonna try almond extract tonight

      1. Try adding a little Hershey chocolate syrup…so good! Or, you can also use the strawberry fluff…

  8. Has anybody tried with whole marshmallows. Maybe a little milk or water. What do you think

  9. I’ve been eating this since I was a kid and love it!! I’m going to making it for my daughters birthday party tomorrow and I was wondering if I can make it ahead of time and if so can I refrigerate it?

    1. Hi Tarah! You can absolutely make this up ahead of time. It will keep for several days in the refrigerator, if it lasts that long.

  10. A wonderful friend gave me this recipe years ago . Try adding a little almond flavoring. Super good and super easy.

  11. This used to be served as a snack to the day care children I worked at. We would add in some jelly for different flavors and serve with graham crackers or nilla waters. Also cinnamon for the fruit. This is a great quick snack that makes the taste buds happy. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Could I mix the marshmallow fluff and cream cheese and put it as a fruit salad instead of leaving it separate?

      1. I think the dip is too thick to use as a dressing. Maybe thin it out with more whipped topping to get a thinner consistency?
