I have homemade fruit dip recipes, so grab an apple or angel food cake and get dipping with my favorite sweet dips.
Creamy, caramel dips to butterscotch dips and everything in between. I also have savory dips and fondue too.
EASY APPLE DIP RECIPE
16 ounce container frozen whipped topping, thawed
7 ounce jar marshmallow creme
small can sweetened condensed milk
8 ounce package cream cheese, softened
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add the sweetened condensed milk and mix well. Then add the frozen whipped topping and marshmallow creme. Mix until smooth. Serve chilled.
BUTTERSCOTCH APPLE DIP
1 (6oz) pkg butterscotch-flavored chips
1 (14oz) can sweetened condensed milk (not evaporated milk)
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp white vinegar
1/4 to 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
In heavy saucepan, over low heat, melt chips with sweetened condensed milk and salt. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and cinnamon.
Serve warm with apples. Refrigerate leftovers.
Tip: Can be served warm as an ice cream topping.
Microwave: In 1-quart glass measure, combine milk, chips and salt. Cook on 100% power (high) for 3 to 3-1/2 minutes, stirring after 2 minutes. Stir in vinegar and cinnamon.
Another fruit dip recipe that is easy to make and delicious.
EASY CARAMEL DIP FROM SCRATCH

3/4 cup homemade brown sugar, packed
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons homemade pure vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 cup cold milk
1 package (3.4 ounces) instant vanilla pudding mix
Assorted fresh fruit
In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and brown sugar until smooth. Add the sour cream, vanilla, lemon juice, milk and pudding mix, beating well after each addition. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour. Serve as a dip for fruit. Makes 3-1/2 cups.
When ready to eat, sprinkle the top with sugar and place under the broiler until sugar is melted and caramelized.
Serve with fresh apple slices.
Easy Coconut Cream Pie Dip
15 ounce can cream of coconut
1/4 cup milk
large (5.1 ounce) box vanilla instant pudding
14 oz sweetened condensed milk
2 cups sweetened coconut flakes, toasted* and divided
8 oz tub Cool Whip, thawed (homemade doesn't work so well)
Add cream of coconut and milk to mixer bowl and mix on medium until smooth. Add pudding and sweetened condensed milk; mixing until thoroughly combined. Fold in heaping cup of toasted coconut and Cool Whip – mix until just combined.
Add mixture to serving bowl and sprinkle with remaining coconut around the outside of the dip.
Apples or Pineapple, Graham crackers, Ginger Snaps, Vanilla Wafers or Shortbread Cookies Angel food cake, Vanilla Pound Cake, Sugar Cookies (just give me a spoon)
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees.
Spread sweetened shredded or flaked coconut on a rimmed baking sheet and bake, stirring once or twice, until golden brown; approximately 5 to 10 minutes. If the coconut is sweetened, check and stir it more frequently.
For this fruit dip recipe, you may use any pie filling to top this dip. I do not use pie filling to dip fruit. It takes away from the flavor of the fruit. See recipe above for dipping ideas...
Beat together the cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanilla; set aside. Beat the heavy whipping cream until peaks form. Add this to the cream cheese mixture and mix well. Pour cream cheese filling into serving bowl. Smooth the top with a spatula, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 to 3 hours.
Spread the cherry (strawberry, blueberry, etc) filling over the top, and refrigerate until serving. Easy to make isn't it? No hot kitchen.
Makes a great pie - just use a graham cracker crust, and add your favorite fruit topping.
