This is one I always make for New Years Eve-it's really good!

8 ounces package cream cheese
13 ounces ie small jar marshmellow cream
1/2 teaspoon ginger
2 tablespoons orange rind
* dash of nutmeg
pineapple juice
red and green apples


Cream together cream cheese, marshmallow cream, orange rind and spices. Wash, core and slice apples into wedges. Dip wedges into pineapple juice to prevent discolouration. Serve.

I found these two in my Company's Coming cookbook but have never tried:

Easy Fruit Dip

1 cup plain yogurt
3 tbsp. icing sugar
1/2 tsp. grated lemon peel(may use a little less)

Combine all ingredients-makes 1 cup.


Caramel Fruit Dip

1 cup sour cream
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tbsp. Kahlua

Stir together. If you omit the Kahlua, add a little more brown sugar to taste. Recipe suggests to make a good amount because this will disappear in a flash! Makes 1 cup.

Good luck! :D

Here are two:

CREAMY ORANGE FRUIT DIP

Ingredients:
1 package cream cheese
1/2 cup brown sugar (or to taste)
1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel (or to taste)
1/3 cup crushed pecans
1 tsp. vanilla

Directions:
Mix together all ingredients until smooth. Place in a nice bowl and surround on a tray or platter with strawberries, kiwis, grapes, apple slices, oranges, pear and peach slices. You may use all of these or just some.

from chefmom.com


FRUIT DIP - STRAWBERRY FONDUE DIP

In a sauce pan over medium heat place one cup orange juice, two cups sour cream, four ounces cream cheese, one cup packed brown sugar, a dash nutmeg, and three ounces grand marnier.
Heat until hot, stirring constantly.
Goes well with many types of fruit, such as strawberries.

I tend to use this with cantalopes and honey dews but its also good with strawberries.

1 package of raspberry or blackberry
appropriate amount of water. 1:4 ratio of berries to water
Sugar depends on how sweet you want it.
1 1/2 lemon - sliced into thin peices
a little pince of salt

Cook the water and berry and sugar until the sauce is thick stir occasionally. Add in the lemon pieces and salt. keep stiring until desired thickness.

Im also trying alter this recipie to make this taste more creamier can anyone help me on that?

My sister uses a simple and delicious dip for her wonderful and popular fruit platters, what she does is combine blueberry yogurt (not the fruit on the bottom kind) with equal amounts of light cool whip, it is light and delicious ... and so uncomplicated!

I use this one quite frequently:
1 - 8 oz cool whip
1 8 oz cream cheese
powdered sugar
[can add flavorings such as Frangelica (my favorite) ]
Enjoy!!
