HAPPY NEW YEAR friends! Oh what a year. WHAT a year. It was the worst of times and it was the best of times. For my family it was a year of extreme lows, yet extreme healing, and love. We pray that you all found something amazing you can take with you into the new year and grow upon. We wish you a year of precious moments, prosperity, good health, and happy relationships.
This New Year's Eve we spent with our kids. We ordered pizza, we laughed, we told stories, we played with the grand babies, and just enjoyed family time. We made lots of dips and snacks and just ate our way into the new year!! It was a blast! I am blessed to have a son and daughter in law who welcome us into their home every single chance they get, and we love them dearly.
Last night we made 3 Layer Chili Dip, and Fiesta Taco Dip last night as well as my fruit dip.
I hope that you enjoyed your time, either with family, friends or alone, as I sometimes like to spend my New Year's Eve. This dip will hit just the spot, especially with apples and strawberries, the only fruit I will lay my lips on! Oh wait, AND pineapple, why didn't I pick up pineapple!!?!
I know many people have an aversion to cool whip if you do, feel free to just use 1/2 cup heavy cream, and whip it about half way before adding the rest of the ingredients!
12 oz cream cheese (at room temperature)
1, 8 oz. container of cool whip
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients in a bowl, using a hand mixer for about 3-4 minutes. You want your dip to be light, fluffy and smooth! Transfer into a serving dish, bring on the fruit, and dip, dip, dip!
