This is a dip for fruit. It’s probably well known to many of you (minus the Oreos) as there are not a ton of fruit dips out there.  I love to combine all sorts of different textures of food, I thought the sweet crunch of Oreos would combine well with the creamy tang of fruit dip. Feel free to eat this with apples, bananas, strawberries, or just skip healthy choices altogether and get out a box of Nilla Wafers. Whatever you choose, this is an incredibly yummy dip. It’s good enough to take to a party, but easy enough that you could whip it up for an after school-snack. Here’s how to make it:

The ingredients are Oreos, A stick of cream cheese, a container of Marshamallow Fluff and about a cup of Cool Whip (optional). This recipe is chock full of delicious chemicals.  Try not to look at any labels; all that matters is that it tastes delicious. (Pardon the bargain-brand ingredients; I was feeling very cheap at the grocery store.)

You’ll start by combining the cream cheese (softened, if possible) with the marshamallow cream and mix it well. I like to add a pinch of nutmeg. You can if you want too. Unless you don’t like nutmeg. I’m apologizing in advance for the marshmallow cream. It is quite possibly the most obnoxious food to work with. Sorry.

Once it’s mixed well, you ‘ll add a huge dollop of Cool Whip. I have to admit here that I don’t really get Cool Whip. You know it has to defrost in the fridge for five hours before it’s ready to eat? Who thinks that far ahead? Meanwhile, whipped cream takes approximately three minutes to make. Why would someone choose Cool Whip? I guess because the sugar is already added? I dunno. But it makes this dip a little bit fluffier so if you have some you should add it. If not, feel free to stick with the cream cheese and marshmallow fluff. Those two alone make a lovely combination.

Now comes Oreo-crushing time. You’ll take about a dozen or so and put them in a ziploc bag then smash them all up with a rolling pin. If you haven’t figured out how to crush Oreos by this point, I give up. Just leave them in slightly large-ish pieces. You want to keep them crunchy, not ground up.

Add the Oreo pieces along with the Cool Whip to the cream cheese mixture and fold it all together gently.

Spoon the dip into a bowl and serve with your favorite fruit! Yum! (Keep any leftovers refrigerated but return to room temperature before serving.)
