Fluffy Fruit Dip and A Dean's Dipstakes

A simple fruit dip perfect for dipping fruit or vanilla wafers made with cream cheese, marshmallow fluff and a splash of vanilla extract. 
Today I'm posting a recipe for a simple Fluffy Fruit Dip. This dip just so happens to be my kids favorite dip. I previously posted a recipe for a Creamy Caramel Apple Dip a couple weeks back. Well the kids liked that dip as well, but the fluffy fruit dip doesn't have any fancy shmancey ingredients so they like it so much better.

This recipe is just a plain sweet creamy fruit dip. There are a lot of dips that my kids wont eat so this is fruit dip is a great standby. Plus it is a great was to incorporate some fruits into their diets.
Don't stop at fruit because this dip is also great paired with some graham crackers or vanilla wafers for dipping.

My favorite is to use apples, bananas, strawberries and grapes. 
I know this is fruit dip has been around for awhile but most folks seem to forget about it. So today I'm just posting a little reminder in case you're looking for a simple kid friendly dip. 

Speaking of dips today I'm also having a quick giveaway! Are you a fan of Deans Dip? Well, I am and no tailgating or super bowl party would be complete with out a few tubs of Deans Dip on the table. My top favorite has to be the French Onion Dip.

I just saw that Deans has a new Cheese Flavored Pretzel Dip. I cant wait to get my hands on that one. As of now I still can't find it in the stores, but as soon as I see it you can bet I will be buying a few containers.

You can substitute a package of strawberry gelatin for the vanilla and it is delicious.
