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

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!
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.
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.
This dip is great for apples and kids love it!
Good, but nothing special. I made it for an event and hardly anyone touched it. I threw it away.
Wonderful! Forget the fruit, I was eating this right out of the bowl!! :o)
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.
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!
This dip was great. I made for Easter and everyone loved it. Thanks.
This serves as a good base recipe for a fruit dip. To give it a little something extra I replaced about a quarter cup of the sugar with some honey, added some lemon zest and about a tablespoon of lemon juice, then added about a teaspoon of ginger paste. To lighten the texture up a bit I beat some whipping cream to semi-stiff peaks and folded in the cream cheese mixture. It turned out delicious!!!
This was very good! Even my cousin who never eats fruit went crazy over this! I made a few changes however. I only added 1/2 cup brown sugar, doubled the amount of vanilla, and added a few heaping spoon fulls of strawberry yogurt to make more creamy and easier to dip.
I have been making this dip since my children were little. This is something they have always loved and now my daughter makes it for her children. For a little variation, I would occasionally add chopped peanuts. We always served with Granny Smith apples...tastes like a caramel apple.
I have made this recipie several times for parties and it is easy and a crowd pleaser. I would suggest making it the night before and allowing it to sit in the fridge to allow the sugar to dissolve.
I made this for my son's graduation party and everyone asked for the recipe. The fact that it was so simple was an extra bonus since I had so much cooking to do. For fruit, I had strawberries, raspberries, grapes, kiwi, and cantaloupe. The dip went great with all of it, especially the raspberries!
Absolutely amazing. So simple to make - the only change was that I used a hand mixer to smooth the consistency a bit. Used it for a bridal shower with a variety of fruits and everyone loved it - i may have even eaten some straight off the spoon!
LOVE it. very simple and will be making it for all time, along with a warm version...Tina's Fruit Dip. Our faves.
Because of its slightly brown color, party guests were hesitant to try it, but once they did they all loved it. It was best with berries, especially blackberries.
Took this dip to a birthday party and got raved reviews. Very simple to make, this is a keeper!
This fruit dip is wonderful! So easy to make and once it is left to chill in the frig for a while, the flavors really come together. I made this for a potluck and used a large round plate and set big beautiful whole strawberries on the plate and put the dip in a clear bowl in the center. It looked like a big strawberry wreath. Beautiful and oh so tasty!
I made this on Superbowl Sunday and all of my friends LOVED it! I had to share the recipe with them. I modified the recipe and used fat free cream cheese and splenda brown sugar. I also added a little bit of milk to thin out the consistancy.
Delicious! Made this to accompany a fruit bouquet to a surprise birthday party and everyone love it!
This didn't end up being the hit I had anticipated. Maybe a bit too rich, too cream cheesy. We didn't eat it all.
Very tasty. I used light spreadable cream cheese and brown sugar blend Splenda (1/2 as much as the recipe called for) to make it lower calorie. It whipped up very nicely. Sprinkled chopped pecans on top as well for added flavour and to dress it up a bit.
This is the same recipe as Apple Dip. It is very good, but a little thick for the softer fruits. We like it with apples, bananas and nectarines.
Creamy, rich, and it tasted like caramel. I served this with grapes, strawberries, and canteloupe. All were fantastic with this dip! This is very thick and not very dippable, but it goes with all the fruit we tried. I was originally looking for something to duplicate Jason's Deli fruit dip, but wow this is even better! My husband raved and asked for this with fruit for dessert every night! From an ice cream and home baked brownie devotee to fruit? (Okay and THIS dip!). I cut this down to 2 servings and he ate them both. I was only able to sample a grape dipped in this wonderful stuff! Thanks RNACSHHS.
Great - I needed something quick and easy to serve with fruit, ginger snaps, and chocolate tortilla chips during the Super Bowl! Everyone loved it - Thanks!
Good dip. I liked that it didn't have marshmallow in it as another reviewer said. I made it in advance for a party and put it in the frig. I should have taken it out sooner so that it had time to soften beforehand.
Great simple recipe. I added about 1/2 cup of plain Greek yogurt (creamier and less tangy than the regular yogurt, available in high-end grocery store or Trader Joes)and this toned down the cream cheese. I think it would have been like cheese cake otherwise. Might be fun to experiment with other flavorings, like almond extract instead of vanilla.
Excellent easy recipe. I halved it for a playdate and everyone raved. Went well with melons, pineapple, strawberries and blueberries.
Sheer bliss! Two notes though: "blend" means with a mixer. Even after leaving the cream cheese sit out to soften for several hours, it was still too thick to mix by hand. One minute with my electric mixer on low and it was blended to perfection and just the right consistancy for a dip. And it turns out brown sugar coloured (which shouldn't have been a surprise with the ingredients) but took me aback for a moment as I was expecting something the colour of cream cheese.
This recipe is excellent! I make it often when we go to friend's houses. Everyone loves it. Try getting cinnamon graham crackers with it, it's better then regular graham crackers.
Yum!! I halved the recipe because I only had 1 box of cream cheese. It was so good. I did mix with a hand mixer and got a very creamy texture. Great with all fruits. Will use this recipe from now on!!
Excellent and easy to make! I was eating it straight out of the bowl. Too bad it wasn't healthier.
Personally, i didn't like it. However, I'm super picky with my foods. I'm going to an easter party in a while, and I KNOW everyone will love it. It has a very appealing (to most) taste. I thought it was WAY to easy to make and i loved it! After preparing it in 5 minutes i thought that i must've done something wrong! Great recipe. Much kudos
MMmm. Mmm. I made this for 4. I cut the recipe in half expecting to have a lot left over . . . we just couldn't stop eating it and it quickly disappeared. Super good. and Super easy. The best kind of recipe. :)
Needs more vanilla than called for... then it is 5 stars. Keeping adding a bit more vanilla to your taste. Kids and adults all love it... great with apples, but also works well with strawberries, grapes, and bananas.
I recently made this for a baby shower I threw. It was quite good, but really didn't get touched. I added red food coloring which made for a pretty color. I will make this again, but next time I will half the recipe.
I thought this was terrible. TOO sweet and too thick. It wasn't easy to serve with fruit and no one barely touched it.
So good. Cut recipe in half and added 2tbsp of whipping cream to make it a little softer. Really, really good.
Big hit with the kids....super fruit dip! I, personally, found that it tasted a little too cream cheese-y, so I increased the brown sugar by about 1/8 c., and we all noshed.
This was just the fruit dip recipe I was looking for, one without the Marshmallow cream. I took this to work and everyone loved it. Thanks for sharing!!!
I made this using light cream cheese (in the brick form) and 1 T. vanilla--wonderful! I ate it with apples, carrots, and Ritz crackers. It's great with anything!
Super easy and REALLY tasty! I served this along with fresh pineapple, fresh strawberries, and granny smith apples at a party and it was a huge hit. By the end of the party all the fruit was gone, and not much of the dip was left. I mixed mine all together with a mixer. The only thing I would say pay attention to is that sometimes brown sugar gets the little hard bits, and those don't really break up when you're mixing everything together. But after the dip chills for a while those bits eventually soften so you can just stir them smooth.
Absolutely delicious. It was a huge hit with everyone. Will definitely use this recipe again.
I have used this recipe several times in the past, and it is always a big hit. This time it seemed a little thick, but I admit I used cream cheese that had been frozen. I decided to add about 2 TBS of half and half and WOW! I can't believe I haven't done that in the past. It makes it just that much creamier. Maybe only add a bit at a time though, so you don't thin it too much. Imagine if you had a couple of tsp of whipping cream on hand! OOOO
This is very good even though the consistency was a little thick for me. I added a little whipped cream to lighten it up and was still very tasty!
This was a hit at my party ! I didn't have the marshmallow creme so I made this . It turned out good .
Used this for a fruit tray and it was tasty with a variety of fruits. Next time I would 1/2 recipe - this was just too much for my crowd.
A few kids at my daughter's 21st birthday party parked next to this dip bowl and moaned about it all night - it was THAT good! I have to admit though, I added a tsp of LorAnn carmel flavoring with the vanilla flavoring because I was serving it with apples. Couldn't have been easier to prepare and gave big taste for such little effort. Thanks for a KILLER fruit dip recipe that I will turn to again and again...
I halved the recipe and served it with cherries and strawberries. My girlfriends refer to it as the "brown sugar crack dip" recipe. Perfect summer time dip that is sweet, but not "over the top."
Great with graham cracker sticks !!!! great for kids and a healthy snack !!!
I love this recipe. It always comes out really well. Sometimes I will mix in some sugar free jello for a different flavor.
Oh So Good. I did X2 the vanilla.
This recipe is super easy and I like that often the ingredients are on hand. Way better than store bought dips and you get the credit of homemade. No one else needs to know that it is so fast and easy!
Delicious!! Half a recipe was more then enough for our family of 20 at holidays. I served with apples and strawberries.
this is a great recipe. you can even make the white sugar version. just substitute the brown for white sugar & you're good to go. or make both varieties for a party & everyone will love you
Yum! I made this with splenda brown sugar and light cream cheese. I also added a sprinkle of cinnamon -- wow!
This fruit dip is awesome! I added a couple shakes of cinnamon the first tiem I made it, and it was yummy! The second time I made it, I added the cinnamon and folded in some cool whip- the girls at work loved it! This will be a recipe that I use over and over again. I am also thinking of adding pumpkin to it, and serving it with vanilla wafers! If you try it before me, let me know how it tastes :)
everyone at parties loves this recipe and asks for it. i am a little embarassed it is so easy, but, of course, they are even more excited about that!
Simple and delicious
Needed a quick fruit dip for a party and only had basics on hand. This is so easy, fast and delicious. I whipped it up in my stand mixer. I like it thick, but you can also get a thinner, creamy consistency by adding a little milk or cream.
Very good and very easy...I took it to a family party and it made those who don't even like fruit eat the fruit salad I made to go along with it! The only thing I would say is maybe let it sit out for a couple of minutes before you serve it so it can get a little soft and spreadable. Excellent and extremely easy recipe!
I enjoy making this as an easy side dish when guests come over. I always serve it with a variety of fruit, but usually apples. Thanks!
Yummy, kids love it on almost everything!
so easy and delicious! Definitely give it time to chill though, because its kind of weird if you eat it just after its mixed.
Easy, yummy, always a hit. What more do you want?
My kids loved this recipe. We cut up some apples the first time we made it and it was gone in no time. We only made a half recipe. I just made it again and we ate the dip with apples and strawberries. My daughter really liked the strawberries in the dip, too!
I was out of cream cheese, and didn't have time to run to the store. However, I had a big container of plain yogurt. Substituted that and it worked well. It was a little thin, but folks loved it.
I served this to a group of friends but only the girls liked it. The guys just ate the fruit plain.
Easy and delicious. I used the lite cream cheese and it was still good. I mixed it in a blender to make it really smooth.
Love it! I didn't change a thing.
Easy, delicious, is definitely a keeper!
This is sssoooo good! I didn't have any problems with the sugar not dissolving, I could have served it immediately with no problems. It's addicting though! My two year old got to lick the beater and just loved it!
This is an outstanding recipe. I couldn't believe how good it was given that it had only three ingredients. Unlike others, I could eat it as soon as it's mixed. I did follow the suggestion that I thin it slightly with a bit of milk.
Awesome dip. Quick and easy and can't stop eating good. I served it with sliced apples and strawberries. Thank you for sharing this delicous recipe!
This was super yummy and I don't really even like cream cheese all that much. Everyone wanted the recipe!
YUM! I made this dip tonight for a Christmas Party tomorrow. I plan to serve it with cut-up pineapple, melons, bluberries and strawberries. But it's so yummy it may not leave the house!
Everyone at our dinner party decided that I could skip the dinner and just bring out more of this dip with apples. A HUGE hit!
DOUBLED YES DOUBLED the brown sugar before it finally reached a flavor suitable for my guests... ended up having a strong caramel flavor, but far from being something I could just eat by the spoonful. ~N~
Really good dip. Even better the next day. I cut the cheese in half (used light cream cheese), used slightly less sugar (maybe 3/4 of a cup) and way more vanilla (prob just over a tb.) It was still too thick so I added cream (whipping cream cuz its what I had, maybe a 1/4 cup total.) We had 2 back to back family birthday parties this weekend, and every person who tried this dip wanted the recipe, it was amazing!!
Delicious! I made this for my son's preschool class (tinted green for St. Patrick's Day!) and served it with green grapes. The kids loved it (and the teachers asked for the recipe)! Thanks for the quick and easy recipe!
This dip is very similar to another recipe that was given to me by a friend- with half the amount of sugar. Each and every guest at my party raved about it and wanted the recipe- they were surprised at how few ingredients were in it! I made exactly as stated and wouldn't change a thing. Definitely a keeper! A bonus is that it uses ingredients that I usually have on hand.
I made this for our Mother's Day brunch, to go with a wide variety of fruits - the dip complimented them all and was very easy to make. Got so many requests for the recipe! I agree that the simplicity of the recipe makes it a winner. Thank you for sharing it!
Amazing! Made this for a super bowl party and served it with some strawberries, blackberries and sliced apples. Everyone devoured it and couldn't stop talking about how delicious it was. So easy to make and a wonderful flavor! Didn't change a thing.
This is so good it's hard to believe there's just 3 ingredients in it...I did add just a TINY amount of milk to make it what I thought was a good dipping consistency. Perfect with Granny Smith apples and walnuts.
Delicious!! We loved it, my kids really enjoyed it.
Definitely a keeper! I made this for the kids but ended up eating it myself! LOL Very yummy, especially on crisp grapes and apples!
Was okay. I thought it was heavy texture for a fruit dip. I am still looking for the the right dip.
Heavenly!!! I couldn't stop saying MMMMM! -I used 2/3 cup brown sugar instead of one whole.- The kids loved it too. One of the young guests spooned it (over and over) into her mouth. Good thing she did that when the fruit tray was almost gone because we had to tip the last of it into the garbage!
I used dark brown. sugar. It made it a bit darker than the picture but the flavor is fine.
This is great with apple wedges or graham crackers.
very good. I cut the recipe in HALF and it was more than enough. It is very sweet so you don't need alot. Served great with fruit skewers.
Definitely not as sweet as the marshmallow creme recipes and that's just fine, as that recipe can get icky sweet! Loved it, and will make again and again!
The recipe was great in a pinch. Very simple. Towards the end I added a bit of peanut butter to make it go further and it was great!
This was so so tasty and really really easy. Two things I love! The brown sugar has a really distinct flavor. I didn't add the vanilla (didn't have any but I really don't think it made a difference) and mixed in some milk until it became the right consistency for dipping - probably about 1/3 or 1/2 cup. No one could believe this was so few ingredients! It is very sweet though - I served it with melon, watermelon, pineapple, strawberries and grapes, but I'd say it would probably be perfect with apples. Thanks for the recipe!
Excellent! This dip is so easy and so good!
