Simply the BEST fruit dip recipe ever!
Here’s is a summertime twist on a Sandomeno family favorite, party dessert. My Mother-In-Law has been serving this for years and it’s always the star of the table! Plus, it’s a healthier option than most desserts. When you add the dip it takes this dessert from delicious to deliriously good! Hope you enjoy and try it at your next gathering.
