How to Make the Best Fruit Dip
MICROWAVE. Pour the marshmallow creme into a microwave safe bowl. Microwave it for 10 seconds. Don’t zap it for any longer, though, or it’ll turn into a liquid.
MIX. Place the cool whipped topping, marshmallow cream, and cream cheese in a medium sized bowl. Using an electric mixer, combine the ingredients until smooth.
COOL. Place the mixture into the refrigerator and let it chill for at least 1 hour prior to serving.
Variations to Try
I’ll be very honest… In my opinion, it’s best not to mess with a classic. This simple, tried and true recipe is pretty perfect the way it is! If you do want to change some stuff up, though, here are some variations that’ll make it more your own while not going too crazy!
- To enhance the sweetness even more and add another flavorful note, add a tablespoon of pure vanilla extract to the mixture. Remember that pure, not imitation extract will yield the best results.
- The strawberry cream cheese adds a great amount of fruity flavor. To add even more, consider pouring in a tablespoon of maraschino cherry juice! To keep things strictly strawberry, add a teaspoon of strawberry extract to emphasize that flavor.
- To add a note of citrus, add one tablespoon of frozen orange juice to the mixture.
