This warm and cheesy fruit dip has become a favorite with friends and family! The blend of cheese and fruit creates a wonderful flavor. Although it can be served with crackers, it's especially wonderful served with sliced apples and pears.

This recipe is very good for fall gatherings. I had to make some adjustments because whole cranberries were not in stock at my local store and I used strawberry cream cheese instead of pineapple (allergy) but the changes seemed to work and the appetizer was a hit at my dinner party!! I would recommend this for any gathering. Read More

Assuming I did everything right this dip was horrible. I must admit that I used crackers only instead of fruit which may have some reason. (As other reviews said it was better with the fruit.) The swiss which I normally love was overbearing. Once you got past the strong taste of the cheese you hit a dead end...it has no flavor. Hope you have better luck. Read More

Although I had never made this before decided to bring it to a holiday gathering. Served it with apples and pears - it was a hit! Had many requests for the recipe! Got comments that it was much better with fruit than crackers. Read More

Wow! This was delightful. Why would someone rate this with only 3 stars saying her guests loved it but she doesn't like Swiss cheese. If you don't like Swiss cheese why rate it? Just feel bad for the person who submitted it. It is an absolute 5 star - anyone who likes Swiss cheese would love it. Very different I just served it at my Euchre card party and it was a hit!!!

This recipe was awesome. I took it to a gathering last night and had rave reviews! I had several requests for the recipe. I am a professional chef and friends always expect great things and this recipe did not disappoint! This is going in my personal favorites file. Still scratching my head over the negative reviews. I did make some lowfat changes- I used neufchatel cheese and added my own crushed pineapple and shredded my own low fat swiss. Thanks for the great recipe. Read More

Great recipe! I just served this at a party and everyone loved it. I used tart fruits to dip. Only change I would make is to chop cranberries first so they are easier to get to with the fruit. This is a keeper! Read More
