I am not kidding you, this appetizer is so ridiculously easy to make. It takes about 3 minutes. The hardest part is cutting up the fruit.
My mom used to make this dip for fruit when we were kids, and I always loved it. Because it contains two things that I adore:
- marshmallow creme (aka, FLUFF)
- cream cheese
And that is all. Srsly! Here’s all you need to make this dip:
You might be able to make it without an electric beater, but you’d have to have a lot of arm strength.
So, you get these two things, and you put the entire jar of marshmallow creme and the entire block of cream cheese into a bowl.
I’d say the blending take about two minutes; use a high speed, and be sure to scrape the sides with a spatula because the marshmallow really wants to stick to the side.
And then? YOU’RE DONE. You can serve it in a nice bowl with a platter of fruit. You can either cut the fruit into small chunks and provide toothpicks (my preferred method, since you then get a larger dip to surface area ratio, and you don’t have to worry about double dipping), or you can cut fruit into slices that people can pick up.
Look, I didn’t say it was the healthiest Super Bowl appetizer ever, but what Super Bowl food really is that healthy? Kids love this dip, almost as much as I do.
Who are you rooting for in the Super Bowl? We don’t care about professional sports in this house, but somehow both my kids are Broncos fans. Or, more accurately, they are going to root for the Broncos in the Super Bowl. They are really barely aware that it’s a team. So don’t hold it against them.
