Yummy fruit dip!

Happy Friday to everyone!! I know I'm a bit late but as soon as I got off of work today, I waited to eat dinner and been getting all my chores done before my weekend! I usually don't go out Friday nights, I think it is overrated. Everything is always busy, people getting crazy, I play it safe and stay home. ;) Last weekend I was over at my best friend's house to watch the UFC pay-per-view. We had ordered in pizza, wings and chicken fingers. Couple of desserts and I brought over a fruit platter. Usually we don't do anything "healthy" for these affairs but I really wanted to make this fruit dip I had tasted during New Years. The house I was at with my boyfriend had some great food but this amazing fruit dip was my favorite. I asked the hostess what was it because I couldn't stop dipping my strawberries into it! She said she used whipped cream cheese and marshmallow fluff. That was all. Simple! Before attempting this recipe I googled to see what I could find on this dip. Surprisingly it is a pretty popular dip and there were several variations on how to make it. I kept it simple with the cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and pure vanilla extract. Do you know about this dip? Share with me!
Marshmallow Fruit Dip
16 oz jar of marshmallow fluff
8 oz container whipped cream cheese, room temperature
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
Fresh fruit: berries, melons, apple, grapes etc.

Simply mix the cream cheese and fluff till well incorporated. I recommend using a hand mixer to make it extra smooth and fluffy. I was short on time and used a spatula to mix the ingredients together. It wasn't as smooth but still tasted good! Add the vanilla extract and mix until everything is incorporated and smooth. Place in the middle of a platter filled with delicious fruit! If you use apples make sure to squeeze lemon juice on top to prevent any browning from happening.

It was a good treat after eating a piece of pizza and a chicken finger! ;) Everyone else really liked it. I may of been heavy handed on the lemon juice, so try to just drizzle a little and not the whole half of a lemon, like I did. ;) Definitely a dip I will always keep in the back of my mind because it makes fruit a little more interesting and is a yummy treat. Umm hello marshmallow fluff!!! My pie post will be up on Sunday and will be a dooozy! Just thought I give you a small warning. ;) Always, Fallon
