Thanksgiving: Fruit Dips

Some of my favorite appetizers/snacks/desserts are fresh fruit dipped in yummy dip (I'd take it over any dessert any day!).  I know there's a bunch, but here are just a few favorites and a few new ones I haven't tried, but definitely want to!

Strawberry Yogurt Dip

  • Assorted fresh fruit (Strawberries, peaches, bananas, etc)
Mix whipped topping, yogurt, and strawberries in small bowl. Serve as a dip with fresh fruit.

Makes 2 cups.

  • 1 (7 ounce) jar Kraft marshmallow crème
  • 3 Tbsp orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp orange rind, grated
  • 1 (8 ounce) pkg cream cheese, softened
Mix together with beater until smooth. Serve with cut up fruit of your choice.

Strawberries and Cinnamon Mascarpone
This is from Butter, Sugar, Flour. She's from Australia, hence the measurements in grams.

  • 500g strawberries, washed
  • 250g mascarpone cheese
  • a few big tablespoons of icing sugar
  • ground cinnamon
Mix the mascarpone with the icing sugar and cinnamon to taste.
Serve with the strawberries. That’s it!
