Yield

Makes about 3 1/2 cups

Brown sugar brings sweet goodness to this fruit dip. Pair it with any fresh, seasonal fruit.—we prefer strawberries, pineapple, and grapes

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 (8-oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup coffee liqueur (optional)
  • 1 cup frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • Garnish: brown sugar
  • Assorted fruit

How to Make It

  1. Beat brown sugar and cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer until smooth. Add sour cream, vanilla, and, if desired, coffee liqueur, beating until blended and smooth; fold in whipped topping. Cover and chill 4 hours. Garnish, if desired. Serve with assorted fruit.

  2. Note: For testing purposes only, we used Kahlúa for coffee liqueur.
