Butterfinger Fruit Dip


Marshmallow fruit dip mixed up with Butterfinger candy bars! You won’t be able to stop dipping those apples in this easy fruit dip!

You know, I really think that there should be some sort of test before becoming a grown up. This whole arbitrary 18 years of age thing is crap.

I’m in my mid-30s, married with children, have 2 dogs, regularly have to color my hair to hide the gray, and from the outside looking in, I probably appear to be a proper adult.

Then I get on the internet and show you how ridiculous my life is.

Like, for my work, the thing I am paid actual dollars to do, I chop up full size candy bars and put them in a mixture of cream cheese, cool whip, and marshmallow fluff and then I feed it to my people on the end of apple slices and graham crackers.

Someone needs to come and take away my grown up adult membership card, because clearly I am a three year old. Candy bars! In my fruit dip! I just feel like that is not something a grown up should be doing.

Life as a mad scientist candy experimenter is good, y’all. I highly suggest creating fruit dip recipes for a living.

Mix it all up again and grab a few apples.

Slice ’em up and serve them with the fruit dip. Graham cracker slices, grapes, berries, Ritz crackers – all of these are acceptable dipping tools. Live your life to the fullest. Enjoy that dip.
