I created this recipe when trying to decide what to make for a "healthy" co-workers birthday treat. I knew she wouldn't eat cake or a lot of sugar so I thought a great fruit tray with a fruit dip would be excellent. I began by using a traditional recipe and thought it could use an update, so I added pecans, vanilla and nutmeg. It was a big hit at work and I everyone requested the recipe.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine marshmallow and softened cream cheese in a bowl.
  2. Finely chop pecans by using a food chopper or processor.
  3. Stir in pecans and vanilla.
  4. Sprinkle with nutmeg to garnish.
  5. Serve with an array of cut fruit such as apples, strawberries, grapes, pineapple, kiwi or your other favorites.

I made this dip for my children for a snack and they loved it. They enjoyed dipping graham crackers, apples and pretzels. I think it will be a nice addition to their school lunches.

This was very good. I would make and take to a party without hesitation. I enjoyed it as written and with the addition of about 3-4 T. pineapple-orange-banana juice. The juice gave it a tiny bit of tang that went very well with pineapple. Thank you Jamie Renee

I brought this dip to a dinner party and it was highly complimented. In fact a few of the guests asked me to forward the recipe on to them! It was very tasty and super easy to make - how can you go wrong?
