We've had a number of parties and family picnics this summer! I've enjoyed them all and have been having so much fun trying new recipes out.
Last year for a party, I made a fruit dip consisting of cream cheese and marshmallow fluff. I got this idea from my mother in law. It was highly delicious but super high in calories too. I don't even want to THINK about how many calories I was putting on my nice, healthy fruit!
So this year, I wanted something tasty yet way healthier. I've had this recipe in my bundle for many years and just haven't made it. It was super easy, delicious and wayyyyyyyyy healthier than the other fruit dip.
I went a bit easy on the rum extract as I knew kids would be eating it. Most of the kids even liked it and it was a great hit! I would have loved to have pineapple on the fruit tray as well but the one that I bought went bad and there wasn't time to get another one. Kiwi would have been awesome too.
