Strawberries with dip

I have some left over strawberries, so I made some cream cheese/marshmellow creme dip. It was yummy! I am also going to add some Amaretto flavored syrup to the dip for next time.

We have to wait another 5 or 6 months for fresh local strawberries.
But when I get hold of some, I love to dip the berries in toffee, allow to set then make a dip of creme fraiche and dark cane sugar mixed together.
Sublime.

mmmmm... in toffee? never had them that way. i always thought they would cook if i dipped them in that because it has to be hotter than melted chocolate and takes longer to cool...

I use chilled long stemmed berries to toffee and the dip is so brief with such a thin coat of toffee that it would/has never compromised the berry's flesh at all. They cannot be kept for hours though, need to be consumed reasonably quickly and that has never been a problem.

Edited to add: these strawberries make a wonderful garnish for many desserts or cakes.

Sounds similar to a one I make, Lynan, with a splash of dark rum added. Good stuff!

Ladycook, your snack sounds wonderful. It feels like it may never warm up around here, and our berries are at least a month away. I have never made a marshallow fruit dip ... hmmm, my girls would enjoy that. There is a pudding one I made with whipping cream and pipe into quartered berries, then drizzle with white and dark chocolate, as well as a "cannoli" style dip we like to take to the boat on weekends for a healthy snack. Would you share your recipe?
