A yummy snack to share!

This recipe I'm about to share is probably the most often repinned item on my Snacks to Share Pinterest board.  It's being repinned a lot right now, I'm sure because it's summer and fresh fruit is so good and abundant right now.  Here's the link: Coconut Cream Fruit Dip.   It's been repinned over 150 times so far!

Jocelyn, at Inside BruCrew Life, has such a knack for devising truly wonderful recipes of all types, but her specialty is sweets. This recipe looks so delicious and easy, and it uses just a few ingredients -- cream cheese, canned cream of coconut, marshmallow cream, and whipped topping.  Rum extract is also suggested, which I personally would not use, but Jocelyn says that vanilla extract may be substituted.

Although this is a summery flavor -- and would be a fun treat to try right now -- it would also be pretty at Christmas with strawberries or red and green grapes.  The dip itself has such a pretty snowy look!  Have fun with this recipe!


  1. That does sound yummy! Following your board now--lots of goodies on it!

  2. Yum!! Mom would LOVE this!

  3. It sure is a favorite on my Pinterest board. As I noted in the post, one of my most frequently repinned pins. Lana -- nice to see you following the board! You have some pretty nifty appetizer recipes yourself!

  4. Sounds delicious. We love coconut.

  5. We do too ... and I've noticed that a lot of vintage Christmas recipes call for coconut (or "cocoanut" as they spelled it back then). Apparently it was/is thought of as a very festive flavor.
