Fluffy Chocolate Fruit Dip ~ made with cream cheese, melted chocolate, and real whipped cream, this dessert tastes just like dipping fresh fruit into chocolate cheesecake! | FiveHeartHome.com I’ll attempt to keep this brief today…so suffice it to say that this effortless fruit dip received a stamp of approval and two enthusiastic thumbs up from Five Heart Home’s Director of Chocolate Taste Testing. Let me also disclose that, when I gave each of my kids two apple slices and a little dollop of Fluffy Chocolate Fruit Dip after dinner last night, they decided to eat their apple slices plain and then eat the fruit dip with a spoon…so as to fully savor it. Well, at least my boys used spoons…my daughter used her fingers to wipe every last trace of dip from her bowl, which somehow resulted in a happy trail of chocolate up her arms, on her shirt, in her hair, and alllll over her face.

Well, multiple spoons actually because, you know…germophobes don’t double-dip. In fact, I believe I counted seven (of my own) spoons in the sink before the 5-year-old busted me. Oooops…

Yup, it’s just that good, y’all…awesome on fruit but equally delicious scooped straight out of the bowl! With that cream cheese undertone, it really does taste like chocolate cheesecake. In fact, it was originally inspired by my beloved White Chocolate Cheesecake Fruit Dip. I decided to give that recipe a semisweet chocolate twist, but after making a few tweaks, the texture of the two dips turned out totally different. The white chocolate dip is creamy and silky, while this semisweet chocolate dip is (as you can see from the pics and most likely deduct from the title) fluffy! Both are scrumptious and both will disappear in a flash when you serve them at a party or get-together. Or, let’s be honest here…if you have a chocolate-aficionado toddler or an endless supply of clean spoons for yourself, you don’t even need a party for this dip to disappear!

But don’t worry…I’ll save myself the spoon-washing labor and use a bowl this time. Heck, maybe I’ll even get out an actual strawberry (or twelve)… 😉

A blend of cream cheese, melted chocolate, and real whipped cream, 5-ingredient Fluffy Chocolate Fruit Dip is like dunking fresh fruit in creamy chocolate cheesecake!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 heavy whipping cream
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature

  1. Measure chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute; stir chocolate well. Microwave for another 30 seconds; stir until chocolate is smooth. (If necessary, microwave in additional 15-second increments, stirring between each one, until chocolate is completely melted and smooth.) Set aside and allow to cool.
  2. Pour heavy cream into a large bowl. Use an electric mixer to whip the cream until soft peaks form. Set aside.
  3. In another large bowl, use an electric mixer to beat cream cheese and powdered sugar until smooth. Blend in vanilla and melted chocolate. Beat at high speed until light and fluffy.
  4. Gently but thoroughly fold in whipped cream until no streaks remain. Cover and chill until ready to serve with fresh fruit, such as strawberries, apple slices, pineapple chunks, melon spears, etc.

      Hi Becky! Thanks so much for the sweet comment. Congratulations (and good luck!) on your new blogging journey! This fruit dip actually does contain cream cheese, but I think the addition of chocolate sets it apart from other cream cheese-based dips. 😉 I appreciate you stopping by and hope your week is going well!

  6. This sounds so good! I have had lots of fruit dips before but never chocolate. AND you’ve combined my two favorite sweets, cheesecake and chocolate 🙂

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I couldn’t agree more…it’s hard to improve upon chocolate, but cheesecake just might do that. 😉 Thanks so much for stopping by…hope you enjoy this fruit dip if you have a chance to try it!

  7. Love this! I can’t wait to try it. I was looking for something to serve with fruit for a ladies tea that I’m in charge of and this is perfect.

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      I’m so happy to hear that, Lydia! I hope that this is a big hit at your ladies tea…sounds fun! 🙂

  8. Oh. My. Word. I could totally eat this before the addition of the Whipped Cream. And then you fold that in and BAM! PERFECT texture! I’m seriously in Heaven right now. This is the best thing I’ve tasted in a long time. Okay, I digress. Back to your regularly scheduled program 😉

    • Samantha at Five Heart Home Samantha at Five Heart Home says:

      Ha ha, Dani…I’m so glad you enjoyed this! And I share your sentiments, seeing as how I could happily eat this dip with a spoon. 😉 Hope you enjoy this recipe for many years to come!
