10 Minute Simple Peanut Butter Fudge Dip

I am getting so excited.  We are just a week away from Munchkins 3rd birthday party!  I have been surfing Pinterest for about 6 months looking for party ideas.  She is in love with Cat and the Hat, so that is the perfect theme.  Red, white and turquoise.  Polka dotted to Whoville and back (that is a Seuss reference, just in case you missed it)!

I have been having so much fun testing recipes for the party.  The first one I am sharing with you is the Peanut Butter Fudge Dip we will be serving.  It seriously tastes just like peanut butter fudge but in a dip!  Perfect for dipping; this sweet treat is just right for every occasion.  We will be serving with some apple slices and pretzels.  The rich peanut buttery dip is creamy and delicious!

You are going to love it.

With love from our kitchen table to yours!  XO

Peanut Butter Fudge Dip
4 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
1/2 stick (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
1/2 cup mini marshmallows
1/2 cup chunky honey roasted peanut butter (I used Skippy)
1/2 pound (about 2 cups) powdered sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small saucepan over medium heat melt the butter and marshmallows.  Once softened, add peanut butter.  Heat until mixture is melted, stirring frequently.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese light and fluffy.  Add the powdered sugar.  Beat until well combined.  Add the vanilla, salt and peanut butter mixture.  Mix well.

(optional) Chill until cooled.  Beat again before serving.  Serve and enjoy!

    1. Thanks Gerry. We are really excited. I love to throw parties and simple desserts definitely have a place in my plans this year. Thanks for commenting. :D

  3. Oh my gosh this looks TOO good. 'I just ruined my diet' good! {And it would be totally worth it} Seriously needing to make this for the Mr. He would forget about my last shopping trip for sure!

  4. Silly me, thanks for sharing at Wicked Good Wednesdays! {And it was SO wonderful to meet you at Blended. I just wish I had been able to get to know you better!}

  5. This looks delicious, but where exactly is the FUDGE in the peanut butter fudge dip????

    1. It tastes like fudge and has a fudgy consistency.

  6. I'm wondering what the little chocolate bits you have scattered on top of the dip

    1. It is an ice cream topping that I sprinkled over it. I am pretty sure I bought it at Target. You could use mini chocolate chips if you are looking for a garnish.
