Fruit Kabobs with Orange Marshmallow Dip

Oh, busy days!  The last several weeks have been super busy and even though I have managed to cook up a few new recipes, getting those recipes posted was another matter entirely!  So here is the first new recipe to get us started for the year, (even though it's almost March, lol), and it is one of my favorites.

Serving fruit is a great idea for any party as it offers your guests something a little healthy, but a little sweet, too.  Fruit kabobs, served on bamboo skewers make a simple assortment of fruit into something a bit more elegant.  These are the perfect addition to your buffet for baby or bridal showers, or even a Christmas party buffet.

I've been making this creamy Orange Marshmallow Dip for many years, but it's such a simple recipe I never bothered to write it down.  So here it is in all of its glory.  This recipe can easily be cut in half if you need a smaller batch, but it does store well in the refrigerator for several days.  Enjoy!!

14 oz Sour Cream (regular or light)
16 oz jar Marshmallow Creme
1/3 cup Orange Juice
Assorted Fresh Fruits, cut into bite-sized pieces

Heat the Marshmallow Creme in the microwave for 20 - 25 seconds until softened, then stir until smooth.

Stir the sour cream into the marshmallow creme, add 3 tablespoons of orange juice and mix well.  Add additional orange juice about 1 teaspoon at a time, until the mixture is the desired consistency, then chill the dip for 1 hour before serving.

Serve with a tray of mixed fresh fruits cut into bite-sized pieces or thread various fruits onto bamboo skewers as shown above and place on a serving tray.  Include fruits that hold up well when exposed to the air, such as honeydew, cantaloupe, strawberries and blueberries, red and green seedless grapes, pineapple chunks, kiwi and watermelon. Avoid bananas and apples which will turn brown quickly.

 Serve the Orange Marshmallow Dip in shot glasses or in small ramekin dishes.
