What is fruit dip?
Fruit dip or cream cheese fruit dip is made with cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, and a little vanilla extract. In my house we call this recipe Fruit Fluff but for this unicorn photo shoot I changed it to Fairy Fluff to keep in line with the whole magical theme. This is a great summer time dip and tastes so good served with strawberries. I was going to use strawberries actually but then I saw Bugles and thought they looked like unicorn horns so changed my mind. I know it’s a little hard to see from the pictures but I did spray the Bugles with Wilton Gold Color Mist to make them sparkle. They looked so pretty in the sunlight.

How to make Fruit Dip recipe
This cream cheese fruit dip recipe is quick and easy and can be made ahead of time. There are a number of variations on this fruit dip recipe including some that call for brown sugar, powdered sugar, whip cream, or Cool Whip. I prefer the rich and creamy cream cheese and marshmallow fluff version.
Mix up your ingredients using a hand mixer until you have reached the desired consistency. It should be smooth with little if any lumps. Evenly distribute the marshmallow cream cheese dip into mixing bowls. Add food coloring until you have reached the desired colors and then place the fluff mixture into a serving bowl.
Swirl the fluff around until you are happy with the look. Place dollops of each color in the bowl so pink is next to yellow, yellow is next to green, green is next to blue, blue is next to purple, and purple is next to pink. Used a large skewer and mix in circular motions until you reach the desired effect. Pretty right? The unicorn food trend doesn’t seem to be dying down anytime soon so bring on the unicorn desserts and the unicorn inspired food…I want it all!
If you want to spray your Bugles too I suggest spreading them out on a wax paper lined cookie sheet and spray them outside. Let dry and then turn over to spray again. Leave the cookie sheet out to dry for a couple hours and then serve with your fluff. If you are a traditionalist you can also serve with fruit, fresh fruit of course, like strawberries, pineapple, or mango…it’s very tasty. This fruit dip recipe is perfect for serving at a baby shower, bridal shower, birthday party, or graduation party. I’ve never had anyone turn away this cream cheese fruit dip!

Can you melt marshmallows to make marshmallow cream?
Yes, you can do that, it just takes a bit of prep. There are a number of recipes online you can try but in a nutshell you need a double boiler, sugar, corn syrup, and vanilla extract. I will play around with some recipes and post my own version.
