RECIPE SHARE: Fruit Dip

Photobucket
ya'll don't mind if i do a little post and run today do ya? it's quite the busy morning round here, so hows about a recipe share and i promise to make up for the lack of a real post tomorrow? okay. thanks. i knew you'd understand.

oh, wait, before i run........a few things.
1. Welcome all new readers making their way from Heart of the Matter. Make yourself cozy, poke around a bit, and email me if you have any questions.

2. Meghan warns......don't try to melt crayons in the microwave. big no-no. you'll be sorry if you try. Meghan, i must confess.....just the thought of it made me laugh. Don't hate me. heehee.

3. Sharyn thinks she's boring, but i think just the opposite. She's always melted down all of the same color broken crayons to make chunks of yellow, or red, or.......you get the idea. Especially a good idea for chubby toddler hands still learning colors. Why didn't I think of that!?

4. Yo-Yo Balls.........don't try ToysRUs. they are SO not helpful. GO TO TARGET at the checkout lanes. They have GOBS and GOBS of them! $3.99. So even a dollar less than that not so helpful toy store. I even grabbed an extra to put with a giveaway in the next few days! I'm helpful like that. *smile* Aren't you excited? LOL.

5. Someone asked.......did you make that monkey on your sidebar? why yes.........i did. AND, you can too. Join me in January at debbiehodge.com for my online class called Embellishments: Beautifully Handmade and learn exactly that, how to make your own embellishments for a fraction of the cost of purchasing the mass-produced, overpriced ones. More on that later.....but registration is open now!

okay, the recipe:
FRUIT DIP
1 container yogurt....flavor of your choice, i prefer strawberry (4 or 6 oz is fine)
3 oz of cream cheese, softened
1 small jar marshmallow creme (i think it is 7 oz.)
8 oz cool whip, thawed

Combine cream cheese and marshmallow creme on medium speed with your mixer until smooth. Then fold in yogurt and cool whip. Serve with bite-sized pieces of fresh fruit. Also tastes great with pretzels dipped in it.

This recipe is perfect for a Christmas morning brunch. It also packs well in a lunchbox with some fresh fruit. Also, I have substituted go-gurt tubes in place of the yogurt....just use 2 tubes.

ENJOY!!!

  16. Hi! I am so glad that I checked out your blog today! My husband loves strawberry fruit dip, but the our local store stopped selling the kind that he really likes. I'm going to make your recipe this weekend so he can try it. I sounds like it's about the same as the old one we used. Hopefully he'll love it! I just love getting helpful hints from your blog!

  28. Kelby loved the Yo, Yo Ball. We had so much fun. I hope Ashlyn liked her Koala. The monkey is very cute. How much do you charge to come and do a class in person say for a small group of people. Talk to you later.
