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!
What you need:
- 7 oz. marshmallow cream (store-bought or homemade)
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- electric mixer fitted with paddle attachment
Time: 5 minutes
Serves: Makes 3-4 cups of fruit dip
Multiplying the recipe: Yes, this would be easily doubled, but one batch will easily be enough for a large crowd.
Homemade Fruit Dip:
In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine marshmallow cream and softened cream cheese. Beat until mixture is smooth and creamy. Serve with lots of fresh fruit!
