1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
sour cream, for topping
This dip was a HIT at my first catering party. I did an Hawaiian theme. I dug out a canteloupe and a grapefruit and placed the dip inside on the fruit tray and on the table. The party guests were going mad trying to figure out how I made it. Hint: I mix it the same as I do when making pound cakes from scratch. Let the cream cheese and cool whip get room temperature or soft. Blend those 2 first, then slowly add in white sugar, then slowly blend in brown sugar stopping to mash out any lumps with your fingers or a fork. Then add in your honey. This is a typical way to blend any type of ingredients with cream or butter. Try slicing open a pineapple or any large fruit and filling it with the dip. Presentation is everything!! Enjoy it!!!
I have mixed feelings about this recipe. It was good, but there are better fruit dips out there. Besides it being an unappealing brownish color, the consistency is not the greatest either. I would try other recipes first.
Its a really good dip and its easy to make. I did, however, have a really hard time getting the cream cheese to blend completely. Putting it in a blender would be a wise idea.
I made a fruit tray for a potluck dinner at work and made this dip. Everyone loved it and kept asking me for the recipe. The only changes I made were I bought an 8 oz container of whipped soft cream cheese. Wonderful!
I made this for a 4th of July party and served it with strawberries. It was devoured. Because some people had problems with lumps, I followed this procedure:
1. I mixed everything except the Cool Whip in my electric mixer until creamy.
2. I added Extra Creamy Cool Whip (instead of whipped cream) at the end.
It was nice and smooth.
Excellent! I made this for Thanksgiving and added some food coloring to make it more festive. I plan to make it again for Christmas and add red food coloring. I let the cream cheese warm up to room temperature and it mixed fine. Tasted great with apples, strawberries, pineapple, grapes....
All my friends are begging me for this recipe. I doubled the recipe, and added
a bit more brown sugar to shake the "cream cheese" taste. But other than that,
it was a hit!
This is a great fruit dip! The maple syrup and brown sugar make a yummy variation. My one suggestion is to put all the ingredients in a blender or food processor to blend. It is faster and easier.
