Rainbow Fruit Platter with Marshmallow Cloud Dip

As a Mama with two kiddos under 5, I try to come up with clever way to get them to eat their fruits and veggies. We call broccoli "trees" and add spinach to our eggs and pasta. My girls like most fruit but I thought as a special treat I would make them this Rainbow Fruit Platter with Marshmallow Cloud Dip. 
No surprise here, it was a hit and they gobbled it right up. We first had it on St Patrick's Day and I have since made it again for a spring time treat. This would be fun served at a picnic, potluck, birthday party, and for a holiday appetizer platter. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 7oz. jar Marshmallow creme
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • assorted colorful fruit, peeled and sliced

Directions:

  1. For the dip: add the marshmallow creme and cream cheese to a medium bowl.
  2. Using a mixer, mix until smooth. 
  3. Add vanilla and use a spatula to stir and incorporate.
  4. Chill until ready to serve.
  5. Place the cut fruit on a platter in the shape of a rainbow. I used ROYGBIV for the rainbow colors. My fruits of choice: strawberries, oranges, mangos, bananas, kiwi, blueberries, grapes.
  6. Add the chilled dip to two small bowls. I use a ice cream scoop to give the dip a rounded "cloud" shape. 
  7. Place the bowls of dip on either side of the fruit rainbow and serve. 


I love that this dip contains only 3 ingredients and can be whipped up in minutes!
