Summer is here! The weather is perfect for gathering with friends and family, barbequing, enjoying the variety of available fresh fruits and vegetables, roasting marshmallows for s'mores, and just having a good ol' time.
At all of my parties and get-togethers, I like to serve food on a stick. Whether it's a juicy chicken kabob, a refreshing fruit skewer or a sweet marshmallow pop, it's just more fun to eat it this way. I love doing this because it allows me to creatively display the food and it's easy for guests to grab and go. Another thing that I like serving at my events are dips. From a yummy guacamole, a hot spinach dip, a zesty salsa, or a savory sauce, it's just fun to dip food and enjoy all the flavors combining in your mouth. Dips aren't only for chips and bread! One of my favorite dips to make is fruit dip which pretty much goes with any fruit during any season.
For a deliciously cool summer dessert, I like to make fruit dip. It's creamy and sweet and everyone likes it (especially my sons). These STARMALLOWS Strawberry Dippers are my boys' favorite. They absolutely love marshmallows. When I want to make them an extra special treat, I make these. Juicy fruit, fluffy marshmallows and a creamy dip, what's not to love?!
