Friday Recipe: Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

Today's recipe is an embarrassingly simple treat. However, my weekend plans involve a baby shower. When I am hosting showers, I always try to include a few relatively easy, crowd-pleasing treats to complement the more involved dishes. This is a great go to recipe for showers, tailgates, or any other type of gathering.

I hope you enjoy!

Cream Cheese Fruit Dip

1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened

1 7-oz. jar marshmallow cream

Dash of ginger

1 Tablespoon orange rind

Note: I like to play with the recipe and add dashes of cinnamon, nutmeg, or vanilla. Great creative!

  1. I have started adding some crystalized ginger to the dip. It adds a nice contrast to the creaminess of the dip and the sharp little bite of the ginger pairs beautifully with the sweet taste.

  2. I'm on an ALTA tennis league, and we have to bring a dish to all of our homes matches and this will be perfect, easy and sounds great!! I will add the crystalized ginger to it, I bet that is good. Infact I will make it next week.

    Thanks for sharing..
