I came across an easy-to-make fruit dip, perfect for any gathering or catering event. Make ahead of time and chill to save on the preparation prior to serving!
1 small jar marshmallow cream
8 oz softened cream cheese
1/8 c. chopped Maraschino cherries
Crushed or finely chopped pineapple to taste
Mix all ingredients together. Add a bit of cherry juice for color and a bit of pineapple juice for flavor. Serve with chunks of cantaloupe, grapes, orange wedges and strawberries. Apples are also good; cut up the day of the event and use a fruit preservative or a bit of lemon juice on them to keep them from browning. This is also good to serve with pretzels and chunks of cake (like pound cake) on toothpicks for dipping.
