We just had my niece's graduation party and this was the one thing that was requested. My Mom has been making this Fruit Cream Cheese Dip for as long as I remember. You can't go wrong with a fruit dip and this one is not your everyday dip. You can also roll this fruit dip into a ball like a cheese ball. Any way you serve it will be a win!
First you start by combining 2- 8oz cream cheese with a small box of instant vanilla pudding! Next, you add in 1 jar of red maraschino cherries, 1 can of crushed pineapple, and 1 can of mandarin oranges. Make sure you drain all the liquid before adding the fruit. There are a couple of optional mix-ins. We have family members that are not fans of coconut or nuts, but those are great things to add! I will be putting them in the recipe but feel free to omit or add different ingredients!
