Dessert Fruit Dip

Chocolate Swirled Dessert Fruit Dip Recipe

Having just recently returned from our cruise I was inspired to get in the kitchen and whip up some desserts that reflected my time traveling through the Panama Canal and I kept coming back to fresh fruit. This Dessert Fruit Dip is perfect for fruit, graham crackers, pretzels, and more.  But definitely FRESH FRUIT!

Who can blame me for craving this summer sweetness when I got home?!

Nothing quite goes together like chocolate and fruit. Fruit makes for a perfect summer desert anyway and when you add a chocolate swirl and some mini chocolate chips, well that’s just icing on the cake! I enjoyed fresh fruit every day on our cruise and in every port.

Cartegena, Columbia especially had a lot to offer. Every few feet had something to help you cool off in the wonderful, warm sunshine.

When I returned this Dessert Fruit Dip was just the logical choice so that I could keep indulging in the tastes of summer.

The only thing that would make this dip better would be this view (Aruba)! Our Panama Canal cruise made stops in Aruba, Columbia, Panama Canal, Costa Rica, and Jamaica. Seriously, don’t miss this one! If you love cruising and love history this cruise is for you.
