Chocolate Fruit Dip

Fruit and chocolate are one of those magical combinations where both components are delicious on their own, but together they form one tempting, sweet, craveable mash-up of flavors. Almost any fruit tastes great with chocolate: tart berries, sweet bananas, cool melon, take your pick! This dip is thick, fluffy, chocolatey and just the right amount of sweet to complement the natural sweetness of the fruits without overwhelming them. This is super quick to whip up and easy to bring to a potluck, serve to guests or just make as a snack! However you serve it, it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser.

I slightly modified this recipe (I used light ingredients) from the Taste of Home Cooking School Cookbook. Taste of Home sent me a free copy and asked me to make one of the recipes for my blog. I don’t accept offers like that unless I’m sure I’m going to love the cookbook or product, but I am a huge Taste of Home fan, so I knew this book was sure to be filled with hits. The only problem was deciding what to make first. I especially liked this book because in addition to yummy recipes they included really useful cooking tips and advice on everything from taking proper measurements to grilling tips to how to devein shrimp to how to purchase the best meats at the grocery store. Many of the recipes have specific tips alongside them and if you’ve ever read a recipe that told you to make a yeast dough, stuff a chicken or caramelize onions and you thought “huh?” this book breaks down the steps with photos. It also teaches you how to make condiments like herb butter, Chili Mayo or Curry Ketchup and they have a fun chapter on DIY cocktails. If you love cookbooks I totally recommend it!

    I like to whip light cream cheese and Cool Whip together with vanilla and cinnamon to spread on zucchini bread for sandwiches for the kiddos. I’m sure they will love this one too! They devour strawberries so this is a sure hit.

    Do you think you could sub chocolate whey protein powder for the cocoa and sugar? Might up the nutritional value a bit ;)

    Thanks!

    OMG!! I was just about to take a trip to the store cause i was craving something super chocolatey like Ben and Jerry’s with the brownie chunks. But then I thought; I saved this recipe, and have the ingredients im gonna try this. IT IS SO AMAZING!! So creamy and delicious! Every bite makes me dance in my seat. I think Im gonna make another batch and freeze half into popsicle molds and the rest for ice cream sandwiches with chocolate graham crackers. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!

    Have you tried the Cool Whip Icing. I have wondered about mixing the chocolate or cream cheese flavor with Cool whip to make a very easy fruit dip. Your recipe reminded me.
