1 (8 ounce) container
frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 (7 ounce) jar
1 (3 ounce) package
This was an excellent fruit dip (and a huge hit). I did follow others advice and used 8 oz of cream cheese rather than 3. I think that made a huge difference. I also used extra creamy cool whip which made it thicker (and made it stick to the fruit more!). I used strawberry cream cheese, but think it would also be excellent with pineapple or mixed berry cream cheese. Whipping the cream cheese prior to adding the marshmallow cream and whipped topping is a good way to avoid lumps. I will be making this again!
This was too sweet for us. I followed others suggestions of adding 8oz of cream cheese. I ended up having to throw most of it out, since no one actually ate any.
When I worked at Safeway we made our own fruit dip for our fruit trays. We used a 16 oz. Cool Whip - 8 oz. cream cheese - small jar of marshmallow cream & a can of Eagle Brand. Try this I think you will like the addidion of the Eagle Brand.
LOVE THIS! I'm always tempted to eat a spoonful all by itself! After making this at least a dozen times for family & work get-togethers, I still get compliments.
I use 8oz flavored cream cheese, and mix in a few tablespoons of powdered sugar after everything else is blended together. I've used plain, pineapple, strawberry, honey nut, and blueberry cream cheese and they all turn out great. Some work better with certain kinds of fruit, but apples are always a favorite. Try strawberries, pineapple, honeydew, cantaloupe, graham crackers, ginger snaps, etc.
I typically make the night before and it always tastes great. Keeps in the refrigerator VERY well... longer than the fruit!
I have made this twice. The first time I used the "Extra Creamy" Cool Whip. The second time I just used the regular Cool Whip. It was definitely better, creamier, and easier to dip the first time. I also used the strawberry cream cheese. Very good!!!
This is excellent.I'm tempted to try it as a frosting sometime! Definitely use the full 8 oz. of cream cheese and not quite the whole container of whipped cream. This makes a thicker dip that sticks to fruit better. Great with vanilla or a little OJ concentrate. Might be good with a splash of Frangelico or Amaretto liqueur as well. We like it with apple slices or strawberries. Makes a great dish for a a baby shower or other get-together. I slice apples and dip them in acidulated water (water + lemon juice), and arrange them on a platter with this dip. It doesn't last!
This is great! I made it for a party, served it with strawberries,cantelope,honeydew,and pineapple chunks, and everyone loved it! I,too, added 8 oz. of cream cheese and a little vanilla and it came out perfectly. I whipped the cream cheese first, then whipped in the marshmallow cream, then the whipped topping. Absolutely no little lumps of cream cheese. Yes.it made quite a lot, but no one in my family complained about HAVING to eat what was left over!
My guess is that if you follow this recipe exactly the consistency will be perfect. Failing to follow my own advice I used 4 oz. of cream cheese and 8 oz. of marshmallo creme. It was delicious, but a little thick and I can never leave a recipe alone, so I added a splash of Grand Marnier to taste and then thinned it with milk. Everybody loved it! I'm thinking of trying pineapple juice and rum next time.
