We love the holidays, and I love creating new appetizers to eat during that fantastic Christmas Day…and Eve.
One of our favorite dips during the holidays is a candy cane dip we call Peppermint Fluff….kinda’ fun!! It is to die for I tell you and a lot of things go with it which is fun when you want to have a variety of appetizers at Christmas time, and you can add healthy items to dip in this one that are yummy.
There are really only 3 ingredients to this fantastic holiday dip:
1 container of marshmallow fluff
1 container of cream cheese
2 candy canes or a few peppermint candies
Just use the bottom of a knife or a hammer to crush up a few candy canes or a few peppermint candies. The more peppermint flavor you like the more you will add…with a few splashes for garnish on top. It is really up to your taste on this one, add a bit and taste and then go from there. 😉
I would leave the container of cream cheese out for maybe an hour before mixing this so it isn’t so hard and it is easier to whip it all together. Just empty both containers of cream cheese and the marshmallow whip into the bowl, blend, and then slowly add the peppermint pieces until it is good for your taste and wahhhla!!
I usually have a platter of sliced apples, graham crackers broken into 1/4 pieces and vanilla wafers are good on the side too! Use your imagination!!
