I bought the fruit but forgot the dip at the market. Most recipes in this category call for marshmellow cream and I didn't have any! I had all 3 of these ingredients on hand - this was easy to make and tastes delicious. Wish I had more cream cheese so I could make another batch! Thank you. Read More

Good but nothing special. I made it for an event and hardly anyone touched it. I threw it away. Read More

This was a great fruit dip! I originally halved the recipe (was making for 4)...then I saw how little it made and proceeded to make it as directed. I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and Splenda brown sugar blend per other reviewers' suggestions. I also added about double the vanilla. I served w/ fruit kabobs w/strawberries grapes and Granny Smith Apples. I would strongly suggest using a hand mixer to mix to ensure a smooth consistency! Read More

Easy tasty and no special ingredients! Our family likes it better than the store bought versions. I do find that it's better if you wait 30 minutes to an hour before serving so all the sugar disolves otherwise it has a gritty texture. Read More

We love this recipe and encourages children to eat their fruit. It is so creamy and taste like a million dollars. For a change try rum extract in place of the vanilla. Read More

Excellent. Very addictive. My mom won a fruit tray that had this dip with it and we were hooked. We searched for the recipe and were so excited to find it. I used fat-free cream cheese and added 2% milk like other posts suggest to get a better consistency. Read More

Absolutely wonderful! This dip adds the perfect amount of sweetness to any fruit. I used pineapple strawberries kiwi and apples and I cannot wait to try it with grapes and canteloupe too. A fruit kabob and this dip alongside a chicken salad croissant would make the perfect summer lunch. Thank you Donna! Read More
