How to Make Fruit Dip with Homemade Marshmallow Cream

Pretty much a staple at any of the parties (usually birthday-related) that I throw are fruit trays and veggie trays. Partly because I get excited about the excuse to buy a bunch of fresh produce, and partly to offset the not-necessarily-healthy options alongside the fruit and veggies, mainly of the dessert variety. 🙂

This has to be one of the most easy and delicious dips out there–it’s just TWO ingredients. While I’m not going to say that having something made out of marshmallow cream and cream cheese is “healthy” (I’m not that delusional) I will encourage you to try to make the marshmallow cream yourself. It’s not hard, and frankly I would choose to use the handmade every time just to avoid getting the blasted marshmallow cream out of the ridiculous plastic container it comes in. I mean, really, do they have to make the top smaller than the rest of the jar? Can’t you help a girl out? Trust me on this one: make the marshmallow cream yourself. It’s super easy, tasty, and doesn’t include artificial flavors or dyes!
