Forget about chip and dip, try fruit and dip instead

July 25, 2012 

If you love sweet treats almost as much as you love chip-and-dip combos, you've got to try this Funfetti Cake Dip at

The recipe combines boxed Funfetti cake mix, Cool Whip and plain yogurt. How simple is that? What a wonderfully inventive idea.

It reminds me of tasty fruit dips that I love to serve at bridal and baby showers. A platter of fresh fruit skewers with a side of colorful fruit dip just looks more elegant and special than a bowl of potato chips with a side of ranch dip, doesn't it? Plus, with the fruit combo you don't have to worry about that yucky ranch breath!

Here are few super simple fruit dips that you should try:

Marshmallow creme, frozen orange juice concentrate and cream cheese make up this Quick and Easy Fruit Dip.
