This fruit dip recipe has been around for ages. I was reminded of it when we recently went strawberry picking and the recipe came printed in a little coloring book they gave our son. Now you know a recipe is easy peasy when it's given as a recipe for children! The ingredients are easily remembered and the best thing about it is it tastes really great. The flavor of the dip doesn't overtake the flavor of the piece of fruit your dipping, it just adds a sweet creaminess to it.
1 block cream cheese (8 oz.), softened
1 jar marshmallow creme (or fluff)
1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice (optional)
In a medium bowl, add all ingredients. Using a handheld mixer, mix all ingredients until thoroughly combined.
Cook's Note: This dip works well with any type of fruit, not just strawberries. Also, try some other variations on this. Instead of lemon juice, add in about a teaspoon or so of vanilla extract. Or even try sprinkling a little cinnamon in there for an extra boost in flavor. You can also substitute the lemon juice for concentrated orange juice.
