Butterfinger Fruit Dip
Are you in the mood to experiment with some new easy dessert recipes? This Butterfinger fruit dip may sound a little strange to you, but as long as you're open to experiencing something different you may just find you like it. While there are apples in this recipe which somewhat makes this a healthier dessert, the dip is definitely a treat and should be eaten in moderation. To make this recipe even more decadent, you could even use vanilla wafters or cookies as something to dip into the dip. With the apples or another fruit, at least you're getting some nutrients in the mix. You could even use strawberries or healthy graham crackers. Try out some different foods to dip into the creamy dip and see what you like best. This fruit dip is a fluffy, light and not too sweet dessert treat. The best thing about this recipe is that it's ready in 5 minutes. So it's a good one to make when you want something tasty right away and don't have the time or patience to make an elaborate dessert recipe. Karly from Buns In My Oven came up with this recipe to share with us, and it's definitely one of the easiest desserts you'll ever make. If you have a blender and all of the ingredients, you're good to go with this effortless recipe. Make it for a gathering, a birthday party, or for your own dessert. It could also be a great easy dessert to make with your kids to get them into making desserts and foods in the kitchen if they are interested.
For this recipe, you'll need some cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, cool whip and a few full sized Butterfinger chocolate bars. You could try this with other chocolate bars and see how it turns out, but it might be a good idea to try this recipe first to get an idea of how a candy bar dip recipe should taste. Butterfinger was first created by a man named Otto Schnering in 1923 in Chicago, Illinois. Otto was the founder of the The Curtiss Candy Company which he used his mother's maiden name for. The company had only been in business for a year before he invented the Butterfinger candy bar and he even held a public contest after he made it to have help coming up with the name. When it was named, and they came up with labels and packaging, the company even threw Butterfinger and Baby Ruth bars out of aeroplanes as a way to market it, and so it would become popular. By 1990, Nestlé bought Baby Ruth and Butterfinger from Nabisco and now, Nestle is going to sell Butterfinger and 20 of its other brands Ferrero SpA, an Italian company for $2.8 Billion dollars.
You may remember Bart and Homer Simpson from The Simpsons being in Butterfinger commercials from 1988 to 2001. They would say some of the Butterfinger slogans like "Nobody better lay a finger on my Butterfinger" and "Nothin' like a Butterfinger" which made the candy bars even more popular at the time. Butterfingers are also one of the many chocolate bars that are distributed in a smaller fun size for Halloween. If you wanted to make some healthy alterations to this recipe you could use vegan cream cheese, vegan coconut whipped topping, and some dark chocolate made with raw cacao. Surprisingly enough, you can make marshmallow cream fluff vegan as well by using chickpeas or white beans, agave, cream of tartar and vanilla. So when you're feeling a bit adventurous, try this great dessert recipe from Karly's website.***
