How to Make Marshmallow Fruit Dip

Save

Dips aren't just for chips and vegetable sticks. With a handful of ingredients -- marshmallow creme, cream cheese and seasonings -- and little effort, you can make a fluffy, sweet dip that pairs well with all types of fresh fruit. Serve it as an appetizer, an after-school snack or as a simple party dessert. The dip keeps well in the refrigerator for a day; make it ahead and store it in an airtight container to avoid last-minute scrambling at serving time. Stir it thoroughly before eating.
