One of the party staples lately is the cut-up fruit tray with the sweet creamy dip. I didn't want to buy one of those, so I bought some fruit and then made this super-quick dip. It is VERY yummy, but it is VERY hard to make stick to the fruit! Either add a little extra milk to make it liquidy, or make sure to keep a spoon next to it so that people can slather on the dip. It's very good. I would make this again.
