Brown sugar brings sweet goodness to this fruit dip. Pair it with any fresh, seasonal fruit.—we prefer strawberries, pineapple, and grapes
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
How to Make It
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.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Kahlúa for coffee liqueur.
This dip is quick and easy to make which is always a big plus in my book. However, I found it to be extremely sweet, and coupled with ripe, sweet fruit (pineapple and grapes) it was too much for me. I ate it with salty pita chips and enjoyed it a lot more.
With that said, I brought home an empty bowl from the party because everyone else LOVED it. I mean really loved it - and three people asked for the recipe. So I will be making it again :). I didn't add in any liqueur, and also used whipped cream from a can (Redi-whip) instead of Coolwhip.
I loved this dip. It will certaintly be a dip that I would make again and I followed the recipe with no alterations. I took the suggestion in the recipe and served it with strawberries, pineapple and grapes. Yummy!
