Fruity Easter Dip Ingredients & Substitutions
- Fruit: I used pineapple chunks, maraschino cherries, mandarin orange slices. You can change up the flavor with different fruits.
- Cream cheese: Any brand, full fat or 1/3 less fat will work in this recipe. Make sure it’s softened to make it easy to work with and create a smooth, creamy texture.
- Sour cream: This will add a bit of tanginess to the dip.
- Powdered sugar: Can leave off the candy melts and add a little more powdered sugar to desired sweetness.
- Pastel pink candy melts: These either come in a vanilla flavor or strawberry flavor. Use vanilla to add a cheesecake flavor or strawberry for a fruity flavor. Can also use any bright pastel color.
- Sprinkles: I used confetti sprinkles in spring colors. You can use any spring themed sprinkles you’d like.
- Dippers: Vanilla wafers, cookies, pretzels or fruit are all good to dip into this cheesecake dip.
- Change up the color with different candy melts.
- Use different sprinkles or candy toppers for different occasions.
- Can leave out the fruit chunks in the dip if you’d like.
- Instead of pineapple chunks, you can also use diced fresh pineapple or canned pineapple tidbits.
