Oh yeah. This Churro Cream Cheese Fruit Dip is good. If you’ve never had the basic fruit dip recipe of cream cheese and marshmallow creme you should definitely make that at some point too. Who knew those two little ingredients would taste that good together! So since I was serving this dip for my Mexican themed Chicks and Salsa party, I thought I would change it up and try to make it taste more like a churro. Because churros don’t suck.
The only thing that would make this recipe easier is if you could get someone else to mix it for you. And it takes only a few ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your cupboards.
You start by creaming together the softened cream cheese and the brown sugar. Brown sugar is awesome, isn’t it.
Next add the marshmallow creme and marvel at its sticky goodness.
Add your vanilla and cinnamon.
Right before serving, add in a little turbinado sugar for a little crunch. This is totally optional. It will not make or break it to have it or not. It just makes it a little more like a perfectly cooked, crunchy churro.
This dip is delicious served with fresh fruits but I would also eat it with pretzels, sweet crackers, cinnamon sugar pita chips, a shovel, my fingers, off my kids face and probably even carrots. The addition of cinnamon makes it kind of fall-y so you should make this for your holiday gatherings.
