Substitutions and Variations
These are some ideas for add-ins and swaps that work with the fruit dip recipe!
- Add texture: Sprinkle and fold in crushed Oreos, salted caramel bites, or mini chocolate chips to mix up the texture and add additional flavor and sweetness.
- More fruity flavor: Mix in orange zest and orange juice concentrate to taste to add a zingy, citrus flavor to the dip itself.
- Add chocolate: The dip can be transformed into a chocolate fruit dip by using chocolate cream cheese or adding cocoa powder to the mix!
Here are some of our favorite ways to serve the marshmallow fluff dip.
- Fruit: Serve with a fresh fruit platter or with any seasonal fruit for a healthier dessert option!
- Pretzels: Serve the dip with pretzels for the optimal salty and sweet combination.
- Crackers: You can dip your favorite wafers, cookies, or crackers, such as animal crackers or graham crackers, into the fruit dip with cream cheese.
Use whatever fruit is in season for fruit dipping. Some of our favorites include berries such as blueberries and strawberries, apples, which balance the sweetness of the dip, honeydew or watermelon, firm peaches, pineapple, and bananas.
For best results, use an 8 oz brick of regular cream cheese, not whipped cream cheese.
Add sealed cream cheese to a bowl filled with warm-hot water. Leave for 5-10 minutes for the cream cheese to soften. If you have more time, leave the cream cheese on your countertop for 30 minutes to 1 hour. You can also microwave the cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl, but be sure not to overheat or melt the cheese.
Both are the same thing! Marshmallow creme is the technical name of the spread, similar in flavor to marshmallows. Fluff is a brand name, so you may find what you want in the store under the label “marshmallow creme.”
Store & Freeze
- Storage. Keep the marshmallow dip in the fridge, covered in an airtight container, for up to one week. Be sure to store fruit separately.
- Freeze. Cream cheese doesn’t hold well in the freezer for long periods of time, but the dip can be frozen in a freezer-safe container for about a month and thawed before enjoying.
