"One of the most popular appetizers I know of. Fruit always disappears first, especially when served with this dip! Goes especially well with cantaloupe, pineapple, strawberries and honeydew melon." — J Edin

1 (8 ounce) package
cream cheese, softened
2 (7 ounce) jars
I give this fruit dip a 5 star rating because it was really good, but i prefer it with just one jar of marshmellow creme
I don't know what to think of this? I didn't do the full amount because I wanted to try it out, so I made about 1 cup. I am glad I did, because it is way too sweet! It has a taste that reminds me of a melted cheesecake or something that would belong on a cinnamon roll, and not something I would really want to dip fruit in. I think fruit taste sweet on its own. I have seen other version made with whipped topping or yogurt that might just be more my taste. But, then again I like the taste of fruit plain or only slightly sweetened, so maybe that could be why I just did not care for this?
I added just about 2 tsp. of maraschino cherry juice to this dip... pretty color and added a nice hint of cherry flavor... everyone loved it, especially with strawberries. The family is begging me to make it again!
I have been making this stuff for years and made it tonight to take to my neighbor's house for dessert. I always do (1) 8 oz. package of cream cheese to (1) 7 oz. jar of marshmallow cream and beat together until smooth. I then skewer fruit (cantaloupe, strawberries, melon, pineapple, etc.) on wodden sticks and serve. It's light, refreshing, and great at picnics and bbq's.
I added cinnamon and a little nutmeg and this was excellent!! Everyone loved it!
I love this stuff. I am not a big fruit eater...and neither is my husband. When I made this...it was gone in an instant. I have made this so many times...it is just great.
This fruit dip tastes wonderful! However, I found that it makes a little too much, so I cut the ingredients in half. Other then that…I would NOT change a thing.
Addictive! Yummy...took this to a family BBQ as an appetizer, everyone just stood at the counter hovered over the bowl! It was great, light, not too sweet, we all loved it. Served with grapes and strawberries, can't wait for the honeydew and cantaloupe!
