Welcome to my new site!! I’m so excited for you to check everything out. Please take a look around and if you find something that you love, I’d love to hear about it; or if there is something that you don’t love, just leave a comment and I’ll make sure and take care of it.
To celebrate my new look, I’m sharing one of my own favorite recipes, Chocolate Fruit Dip. I love this Chocolate Fruit Dip because it is so versatile, semi-healthy, and it is so very good. Like, lick the bowl and use a spatula to get every last bite good. The chocolate has a strong, deep flavor blends perfectly with all kinds of fruit. I’ve made this to go with our family’s dinner, a baby shower, a football party, and Thanksgiving dinner; the possibilities are endless. I made it most recently for my friend’s surprise birthday party. For this event I made fruit kabobs with strawberries and bananas. If you choose to make cute little kabobs like this, and don’t want to mess with shortening traditional kabob skewers, use candy apple sticks that you can find in the candy making section on your local department store or craft store. They are the perfect size and work great!
- This dip comes together in a snap with only 3 ingredients: yogurt, cocoa powder, and maple syrup.
- It’s thick like a pudding. Our favorite things to dip in it is fresh pineapple, strawberries and bananas. We’ve also enjoyed graham crackers and vanilla wafers.
- I like using Dannon Light and Fit Vanilla Yogurt, but any vanilla or plain yogurt will work. I’ve also made it with plain Greek yogurt. The Greek yogurt makes it very thick.
- The recipe calls for pure maple syrup, but I’ll be honest, I’ve used the fake stuff plenty of times. Taste wise, it makes no difference.
- If you are using a fruit that will start to brown, dip the pieces into lemon juice before placing them on your serving plate. This will help keep them looking pretty for longer.
