Ever since I was a small child, I have been fond of whipped cream. We didn’t have dessert without it! In fact, when I was younger, I’d eat dinner rolls & whipped cream at Thanksgiving.

Thankfully, my tastes have grown & I can appreciate most of the dishes Thanksgiving has to offer. This makes me feel like a whipped cream connoisseur, if there is such a thing!

To Make Peppermint Fruit Dip, You Will Need:

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

  • Heavy cream
  • Powdered sugar: Also known as confectioners’ sugar
  • Crushed peppermint: Or candy canes

How to Make Peppermint Fruit Dip

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

  1. In a large mixing bowl/mixer, begin to beat heavy cream with whisk attachment on low. Gradually increase speed until stiff.
  2. Reduce speed & gradually add powdered sugar, followed by peppermint.
  3. Serve immediately or refrigerate & serve.

What to Serve With Peppermint Fruit Dip

This peppermint fruit dip can also be served with cookies, pirouette sticks & graham crackers. The girls love it with grapes, apples & of course, strawberries – you can make it as part of a fruit tray! It’s a great appetizer or dessert! You’ll love it on a warm brownie or piece of cheesecake, too!

A Sweet Dip Made With Whipped Cream

It was New Year’s Eve, 2000. A friend’s family member served Peppermint Fruit Dip. It was delicious, but I knew altering one “ingredient” could make it incredible! Exchanging cool whip for whipped cream. Whipped cream, for me, tastes quite artificial – let’s be honest, it contains a lot of ingredients! Whipped cream is so much richer and it really doesn’t require too much effort.

Easy Fruit Dip Recipe

These are my favorite kind of recipes, a handful of ingredients, 5 minutes and you have an amazingly decadent dish on your hands! It doesn’t have an overwhelming peppermint flavor to it, and it’s not too sickly sweet either. It’s a hit with teh adults and it’s a great way to get the kids to eat their fruit!

Can you Make Peppermint Fruit Dip Ahead Of Time?

Because the cream in this dessert appetizer is whipped, you don’t want to make it too far ahead of time or it will loose it’s fluff. You can make it two to three hours ahead of time and keep it covered in the fridge.
