Peppermint Fruit Dip Ingredients

You just need three simple ingredients to make this sweet dip!

  • Heavy Cream – Also known as whipping cream, it whips to perfection making the dip light and fluffy.
  • Powdered Sugar – Also known as confectioner’s sugar it sweetens the dip while giving it luxurious texture. If you don’t have powdered sugar, pulse white granulated sugar in a food processor until light and fluffy.
  • Crushed Peppermint – Adds flavor and crunch to this dip. Crush candy canes also work well.

How to Make Peppermint Fruit Dip

It’s so quick and easy to make this crowd pleasing dip!

  1. Whip – In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer fitted with the beater attachment, begin to beat heavy cream on low. Gradually increase speed until stiff.
  2. Combine – Reduce speed and gradually add powdered sugar, followed by peppermint until just combined.
  3. Serve – Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.

Tips

  • If you don’t have a stand mixer or electric whisk, you can whip the cream by hand, it will just take a little longer.
  • Gradually add the powdered sugar, not all at once.
  • Use very cold heavy whipping cream.
  • Don’t over-whip! It’s better to under-whip than over-whip.
  • I prefer to wait until the last minute to make my whipped cream. You can prepare it in advance up to four hours and it will keep most of its volume. 

To Store

  • Refrigerate – Refrigerate in an airtight container. Best used within 4 hours to maintain volume. Stir and serve.
  • Freeze – Freeze in an airtight container up to 3 months.
