I found this recipe in my new cookbook by Joy Bauer called Slim & Scrumptious. This was a fun and quick dish I made for my kids’ afternoon snack this week. Needless to say, it was a HUGE hit with both of my kids and they gobbled up every last bite. It was fun for them to eat and it was a great way to load up on fresh fruit. My daughter liked to dip the fruit and crackers directly into the dip while my son liked to spread the dip on the graham cracker then top it with a piece of fruit – just like a real piece of cheesecake. This one is a keeper!
Cinnamon Cheesecake Fondue:
- 1/4 cup of cream cheese, at room temperature
- 6 tbsp sour cream
- 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Strawberries, sliced
- Apple, sliced
- Plum, sliced
- Kiwi, peeled & sliced
- Graham crackers
Combine the cream cheese, sour cream, brown sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla extract together in a bowl, mixing them vigorously with a whisk until smooth and creamy. For best results, refrigerate for 30 minutes prior to serving.
Serve the dip with the fresh fruit of your choice and graham crackers. Enjoy!
