It’s funny what you remember over time. I don’t remember what I wore last Monday but I do remember what I ate every Sunday night as a child. Sunday night was snack night. We’d lay out a beach towel on the living room floor in front of the TV. We’d put out a spread of veggies, dips, cheese and crackers and watch Rescue 911 and America’s Funniest Home Videos. It was our thing. It was my favorite part of the week. Maybe because of the cheese dip, maybe because of the fruit dip mom always made for dessert.
I loved that fruit dip…and I still love it today. It’s creamy and rich. It’s the perfect thing to pair with a crisp, tart apple.
The cream cheese absolutely must be softened…trust me…be patient and let it sit out on the counter for 30 minutes before you try to mix it with the marshmallow creme. If you don’t you’ll end up with about a million little cream cheese balls that will never mix in!
You don’t need to have a living room floor picnic to have a reason to make this fruit dip. Any time you want to add a little sin to your healthy fruit snack will do just fine.
