There’s a new year’s eve tradition I have of making platters of snacks for us for the holidays, so I have included my fruit dip here and an alternative for a more low cal version you might like too.


1 jar of marshmallow creme.. (small jar)
1 package of creme cheese (can use low fat kind)
mix those together and use about 1/2 tsp
of nutmeg . (or add it to your taste.)
Use this with all kinds of cut up fruit.
This dip is so rich, but boy does it go fast!!
I bet I get asked “where’s the dip?” too
1  small carton of Yoplait WHIPPED flavored yogurt (6oz)
1 small carton of whipped topping (thawed 4 oz)
This can be doubled  for a larger batch. Tastes Great!!
This year not sure how much cooking I will do but I surely will be snacking some and these two dips really are great. I love making a cheese, meat and cracker platter too. A new chip I found this year is by SUN CHIPS
and it’s a natural grain chip and it’s thin and delicious. They have so many flavors too. I hope you can find these in stores near you.
On New Years Eve this year I will be lighting a candle in remembrance of those bloggers we miss.. including  Bob Bowers, Carol Ward, and for  my mom.. They are truly missed.
With all the many changes they are making over to Facebook I am hoping to see if this posts there. I am still working on my profile page trying to get the settings the way I want them. Hopefully they won’t be changing it again just when we get used to things.
