SIMPLE & EASY FRUIT DIP
Okay, I can't believe this 2 ingredient fruit dip is a whole blog post, either, but let's face it - we moms always need simple and easy recipes for potlucks, unexpected pop-in visitors and bring-a-dish gatherings. Here's a little something for your bring-along-food recipe arsenal. This simple 2 ingredient fruit dip is quick and easy to make last minute and goes great with fruit platters.
My family usually eats fruits nice and naked but if you're looking for some 'bling' to dress up your mid-day snack, this is tasty and fun to make with young kids. Fair warning: it is v-e-r-y sweet. It's a pretty simple recipe that they can follow all by themselves while you prepare the fruit. And if you have some food dye in the pantry... you know what I'm getting at. And if you happen to have some mini-chocolate chips, sprinkle some on top as a garnish.
Simply combine the 8 oz. cream cheese packet and the 7 oz. jar of marshmallow creme in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer. I don't recommend trying to mix by hand - it comes out clumpy and tastes uneven, the electric mixer is key.
*Optional: add food coloring.
Yup. That's it. My recipe page ain't called "Simple Recipes" for nothin...
