Tina's Fruit Dip
I got this recipe from my mother. It's great with about any type of fruit. Strawberries, bananas, apples and grapes are the best.

I decided on the spur of the moment, as I sliced an apple, that I would like a dip to go with it. I found this one. The 4 ingredients were things that I always have on hand, and it was oh so delicious and easy to make! We loved it! It was NOT sour, and NOT runny. However, if you are one who likes it thicker, chilling it thickens it up a good bit. We like it both ways. I had some left over, and the next day I added a couple tablespoons of peanut butter to it, and that was yummy also and made it thicker. I will use this one again, and again.

Easy and delicious. Has a carmel taste to it. Definitely chill well before serving. Good with grapes, strawberries, apples, and bananas. Will make this again for sure.
Very good!Very sweet! Best to not use any type of melon. It thickens a bit if it is chilled. Overall I would definately make it again and use with apples as a quick snack.
This is out of this world good. Taste like heaven. I liked it better chilled. Went great with apples, bananas and grapes.
This was very simple to put together and everyone loved it! Great with strawberries!
This was a great recipe....as long as you are not watching your calories! Instead of using vanilla, I bought a bottle of Disaronno amaretto, and that's what put it over the top!
This is a huge HIT for parties. Everyone went nuts over it. Very easy to make. Definitely a keeper.
I was needing something quick and easy for a picnic, I found this recipe, and it was perfect! Highly recommend this to everyone
Great! I brought it to Christmas brunch. I like it better chilled. It was great with banana's, apples, nnd pineapples. I did not like it with melons.
Way too sour tasting and runny.
Absolutely delicious cold - is great without the butter too!
I made this at the last minute, I planned on a cream cheese one, but didn't buy enough cheese. Had ingredients on hand for this and it was very easy and good, I served it chilled.
I whipped this up to go with some apples lastnight when I was packing my husband's lunch. He just texted me raving about it! It's super quick and easy to make! I substituted Smart Ballance for butter and I think I used low fat sour cream. I also added about 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. YUM!
This is soooo good! I took it to a party and ate the leftovers with a spoon. I used fat free sour cream and light margarine, so that helped a little. It's my favorite fruit dip now.
This dip is insanely delicious! Easy to make too and fast. I really loved it hot / warm. I poured it over freezer chilled apple slices and it was heavenly!
Mmmmmmmmmm! Soooo good that it must be sinful :-). And I only used half the butter! Would make this over and over again...
The ladies at a party I had loved it. Definitely use real butter as this helps it set up better as well as making sure it chills for 2-4 hours. I used 2 tsp of vanilla and 1 tsp of real maple syrup. Great served with grapes, apples, but strawberries was the best.
Tastes like caramel. Don't even notice the sour cream (my fiance hates it but loved this dip... I didn't tell him what was in it) I made this because I had the ingredients on hand and wanted dip for my fruit, however, I think I prefer the more traditional flavored fruit dips.
This recipe is pretty good on its own. I added cinnamon and I split the sour cream with yogurt. It was a wonderful autumn treat with apples and pears!
This recipe is simple and delicious. I served it at a party this past weekend and everyone enjoyed it. I served it chilled and it thickened up quite a bit after sitting in the fridge about 4 hours. Thanks for the recipe!!
I made this dip for my sister-in-law's bridal shower and it disappeared faster then the groom did when he dropped my SIL off. I used the recommended fruit and I doubled the recipe (it was a lot), but the guests kept going back for thirds, fourths, one guest even had fifths!! I have never seen fruit get eaten so fast. Thanks, Tina :)
I really liked this. The next time I make it I think I will use less brown sugar. I think it was a little sweet for me but otherwise very easy and tasty. I will be making this again. Thanks
Pretty darn good. Lovely slightly sour, sweet taste that goes really well with nearly any fruit we tried with it. Gets perfectly creamy after chilling in the fridge for a few hours. Mmmm!
Love this because it is not just good, but super fast and easy! It is a little on the sweet side for me, but that is easy to adjust.
I wish I had paid attention to how much this recipe yields...it was WAY more than I needed for a fruit tray. I will make this again, but will definitely halve the recipe. Excellent with strawberries, grapes & apples.
This is very good. I have been to many of baby showers, wedding showers, and most of the fruit dip is marsmallow and cream cheese... This is so yummy and goes great with strawberries! It took about 3 min for me to whip this up for my daughters 1st birthday party! Totally last min. Everyone liked it!
Delicious! This was easy and yummy. I wish I had more parties to make this for!
Awesome! This is the best fruit/caramel dip I have ever tasted. I will definitely make this for family and friends. Thanks for the easy recipe.
I made this very easy dip and added fresh, seedless red and green grapes and refigerated them overnight. I served this cold as an "appetizer" at an anniversary brunch for my parents. It was fabulous!! Give it a try!!
Made for a potluck dinner; everyone loved it! They were shocked to hear the ingredients and how simple it was to make.
This was so delicious and so easy. I needed a "small" dessert to take to a party and I brought this with some gingersnaps I had made to use as dippers. It was a big hit. It did need to chill to thicken as others have written.
I made this for thanksgiving. I used plain yogurt instead of sour cream because it was Thanksgiving and we couldn't get to the store! It turned out pretty tasty, I just wish the consistancy was maybe a little thicker. I also added pecans to the top.
So Delicious! My mother's been making this dip for years, and it has always been a favorite at family get-togethers! It's very hard to stay out of!!!!!!!
I made this recipe for a super bowl party, it was a hit. It was gone in no time. Everyone was requesting the recipe. Thanks again, I will make this again and again. Was awesome!!!!
Very good, I found it delicious with apples, bananas, and green grapes. It is definitely better cold. I like it much more if you add a spoonful or two of creamy peanut butter.
I made this fruit dip because I had all the ingredients on hand. I agree with PP that it would not work with melon...and maybe not with pineapple. I used it with strawberries. My first impression was "hmmmm creamy caramel." I thought it would be best on apples. After eating about 10 strawberries before my guests had arrived, I decided that it was really good on strawberries as well....maybe grapes too. Anyway, I give it 4 stars because it is not quite as versatile as other fruit dips, but for a nice change of pace and a little something different, it is quite delicious!
Good and easy recipe with ingredients I had on hand. I gave it four stars because I found it a little too sweet.
Yum! This was so delicious and easy to make. I LOVE that I already have all the ingredients on hand! Can't wait to see what everyone else thinks about it...
Five stars for taste and convenience, but only 3 stars of consistency, so I'm giving this one a four-star rating. I didn't like how runny the dip was.
So delicious. A relative can't have chocolate... we drizzled it over a piece of cake with plain vanilla frosting and tasted great.
This is great with cake! I don't really care for it too much with fruit. But it is good. I just want to find out what I should use this with. Definately better with apples than any other fruit.
The flavour was really yummy. I only gave it 4 stars because it did not thicken up for me so was much more a sauce than a dip.
This was good. Not too sweet.
I liked this recipe. It was very simple easy to create and I already had all of the ingredients. I scaled the serving size down to 3 and it was enough for me and my three kids for a quick snack with lots ready for tomorrow's dinner with family. We were too eager to wait for it to thicken up and it was smoother than we are use to but from reading the other reviews, I was prepared for it. Still, it was fabulous. Thanks Tina!
This was so easy and it got rave reviews. I needed a quick recipe with ingredients I had on hand and this was it! Thanks for a great recipe.
I served this for a party and it was a big hit. It's so easy, with just 3 ingredients. What could be better?!!
I'm bringing a fruit dip to a recognition event for work next week, so I'm trying out dips. Bf wasn't too impressed wtih this one. He said "If I wanted a dip, I'd just grab some caramel." I think he thought it was too runny--didn't understand it thickens as it cools and won't be runny after being in the fridge. I liked it, especially with apples. I don't know if I'll bring this one, but it was a nice dip. Thanks for the recipe!
love it. simple and uses every day items. I've had to make it several time these past few weeks. my kids LOVE it and eat so many more apples this way. They like it warm or chilled with walnuts sprinkled on top. I've also used yogurt when out of sour cream and just as good.
I made it for a work function. Everyone LOVED it. I will def. make this again!
I have been searching for a good fruit dip and I finally found it! Thank you for the wonderful recipe.
This is really good.......!
Delicious! So easy to make. I served it slightly warm and it was great. Will be making it quite often....thank you :)
Love! I was craving fruit dip for my apples after seeing apple dip on the homepage today. I didn't have cream cheese on hand so I was so excited to find this recipe using sour cream as the base. It's very rich.
"It's finger linkin' good", says my daughter. She found this recipe, and we just made it this morning. I served it cold. Tasteless red coloring was added. Next time she wants blue :-) Thanks for the recipe, Tina!
This is fabulous! I took this to a brunch and got nothing but rave reviews. I used it with pineapple, strawberries, and apples. It has a great taste and a nice texture. A new favorite, for sure!
Excellent! quick and easy dip- I had all the ingredients on hand. I only had 30 min to chill it in the fridge, and it thickened right up. Delicious!! I used grapes, apples, watermelon, pineapple, strawberries. Everyone asked for the recipe!
I made this on a whim, because it looked fast and easy. I wasn't too sure about what the end result would be, given the ingredients, but who knew such an odd combination would blend together to form such a delicious, caramel flavor. I followed the directions exactly as written, and it was perfect. It was a huge success and there was none left over after the event...always the mark of a culinary triumph. Thanks.
Wonderful fruit dip. It was just a little too sweet for me though. I did chill it for about 3 hours because it seemed too thin at first. It really thickened up though in the fridge and was great.
I made this because it was the only recipe that I had all the ingredients for. We were not disappointed! Yummy! Definitely a keeper!
Delicious warm but very runny. I threw it in the fridge to thicken. 11 year old loved it with bananas!
Delicious, quick, and simple. I decided on a whim that I wanted a fruit dip, and so I did a search for one without cream cheese since I didn't have any on hand, and this was just the ticket. We ate it with grapes and strawberries and loved it.
This would be great on top of brownies or ice cream too! Very good!
Love it!! Wonder how this would taste as an ice cream topping? Hmmmm.........
This is really good! I managed to let it cool for about an hour before I dug into it. Another hour would stiffen it up a bit, but...I wonder if maybe increasing the sugar and butter ratio (or decreasing the sour cream) would help? Or maybe go ahead and boil the sugar/butter mixture for a few minutes before adding the sour cream and vanilla? Anyway..delicious on apples, going to try strawberries, and already brewing up some ideas for other uses for this. Yum! Thank you.
Very tasty. I had a party and put fresh fruit with this recipe. It was fast and easy with ingredients I had on hand.
This wasn't bad, but it's not something I will make all the time. It was a nice change for fruit.
Very good and sweet! Especially with bananas.
I thought it was too sweet myself, But my kids liked it.
I love this dip..but I am living in Brazil and they don't have sour cream here :( so sad cause i love it! so i use plain yogurt instead. its a lot more runny but I guess if you don't have sour cream it works well. I think if you mix the yogurt with some kind of cream or chantilly it can thicken the mixture. I am trying to find a way to thicken it. It just happens that the yogurt is way runnier in Brazil than the US, so its almost like water. I tried to heat it a little longer and let it sit over nght but it didn't help :(...
delicious, easy to make, I couldn't stop eating it!
Love it! Super easy and it's delicious! Everyone at my party just loved it. It was a hit!!!
This was really good but not quite 5 stars. Took it too bunko and the ladies seemed to enjoy it. The brown sugar flavor seems to stand out.
Great! Went fast!
Taste great and its simple and quick to make. I like it with apples or bananas the best.
PERFECT AND DELICIOUS>>>GREAT CHILLED
This is a good dip if your wanting sweet. I did add 2 tblsp. of peanut butter after tasting the recipe as written. Maybe cut back on the brown sugar.
Was looking for a recipe for fruit dip that I could make with ingredients I had on hand. This was perfect! Easy to make, sweet but not overwhelming. Nice compliment for apples, grapes, and strawberries. Defintely a keeper!
loved this so much...my family said it was too sweet, but I liked it, as is it easy to adjust, healthy and tasty!
Easy and delicious. It is great with fresh fruit or as a topping on pie or cobbler. It does make a lot. When I make again I will half the recipe.
Very good dip with ingredients you always have on hand. I added crushed walnuts which was nice with pineapple. Serve chilled. Second day mixed with whipped cream as banana pancake topping. Yummmmy.
This fruit dip was wonderful! I followed the recipe exactly and served it cold for Christmas breakfast. It was great on the mixture of fruits we had that day. I was a little alarmed at how much it made (how much I had left!) until I discovered that it's also *amazing* on oatmeal! Yum!
Really good and easy to make.......Even though I made the mistake of using tablespoons instead of teaspoons with the vanilla extract. Will make again-next time I'll pay more attention and I'm sure it will still be delicious.
OMG! YUMMY! This dip is A-MAZ-ING!!! I did it exactly as she has it written. Try it! You won't be disappointed!
I just made this last night for my boyfriends office breakfast meeting. I have never had it so easy! It got rave reviews at the office.
Excellent sweet rich caramel-ly dip! This was very thin and runny when warm, but still delicious. I served this with grapes but I think it would be awesome with any fruit and probably would be great drizzled over cake, brownies, or ice cream too. It tasted like Kraft caramels candy with a little twangy aftertaste (I guess that is the sour cream's flavor). YUM! Thanks Tina!
Very sweet and buttery.....
A good mix that I will make again but I might try it with greek yohgurt next time.
Yummy! Easy to make and tastes great! Going to use again, especially when summer rolls around.
I always get compliments when I make this. I usually just play around with the ratios and tailor it to my taste. I think there is too much of butter and sugar as many of the other reviewers have written.
Very easy to make. I served it cold. It was extremely sweet.
Made this for a get together and it was well-received. Did have some left over, but we had a LOT of food. The next morning, I used a couple of tablespoons in a fruit salad of strawberries, grapes, and bananas we had for breakfast and it was wonderful! Edit?
I've made this many times with my culinary arts students. We've played with the recipe and we have developed a version of this we like more. We cut the sugar by about a third. Then when it's all made, we fold in freshly whipped cream until it forms soft peaks. We find lightening it up makes it much more enjoyable.
So delicious and a great unique taste. People can't put their finger on why it tastes so delicious! Perfect especially as it doesn't call for Marshmallow Fluff which I never have in my cupboard if I am making last minute.
I needed a quick fruit dip. I used a cup of sour cream and added about a quarter cup of brown sugar and then added a little vanilla. It was not thick, but the flavor was delicious. I just couldn't understand the use of the butter, thought it would be greasy, so I left it out. Possibly with the butter, it would have been a thicker consistency.
Super easy to make and very tasty. It is a bit thin when it's warm, but after it chills it's great.
This was delicious. However, I did change it up a bit. I added in a large pinch of salt, cooked the butter/brown sugar mixture until it was almost smooth (so more like caramel), and added in the whole quart container of sour cream. I garnished with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Over time, it thickened nicely. It was a huge hit at the party we attended. We served it with pretzel sticks since our apples were all a bit bruised and not good enough for a party.
So easy to make. Everyone enjoyed it with the fruit kebabs I had made.
