Works for Me Wednesday - Awesome Fruit Dip!

This is my first week to participate in the Works for Me Wednesday carnival hosted by Rocks in my Dryer. I've received some pretty cool tips from checking out what other people have posted and decided that I should join in the fun.

This weekend I had my family over for dinner, since my sister who lives in California was home for a visit. (And by the way, I think she should move back. I mean, who wouldn't choose the never-ending winters of the midwest over the sunny beaches of SoCal?) For dessert I made an incredibly easy fruit dip. Here is the recipe:

Fruit Dip
Prepare one box of sugar-free butterscotch pudding.
Mix in fat-free Cool Whip, until you get a the consistency and taste that you like.
The end.

I told you is was easy! I also made a version where I mixed the pudding with whipped cream cheese. Mmmmmm. Everyone LOVED it. It's especially good with apples because the butterscotch gives it a caramel-like flavor. My sister brought chocolate chip cookies and everyone loved putting the fruit dip on the cookies, too. And it's good on graham crackers. And it's good all by itself. Mmmmmmm. And the Cool Whip version is FAT FREE. Woohoo! (Well, it's not fat free if you put it on cookies...)

Head on over to Rocks in my Dryer to see more WFMW tips!

We have a similar recipe but it uses vanilla pudding and half a package of your favorite Jello flavor. Dissolve both in a little milk then mix with the cool whip. :)

At first I was like..butterscotch? But you got me when you said it tastes like caramel. I've got to try this! Thanks for the tip. I'm also a Hoosier, just south of Indy. The past few days were so nice, but today is back to stinky Indiana weather!
