How to Make Fruit Dip

What Fruits Should I Serve with This Fruit Dip?
I love it best with strawberries and bananas. But I think raspberries would be another delicious option. And I wonder how a citrus fruit would taste with this, such as tangerines or oranges?
Tips for the Best Fruit Dip
- The cream cheese should be softened to room temperature. Otherwise it won’t whip up properly.
- Feel free to scale back on the amount of powdered sugar you add to this recipe, if you prefer a tangier fruit dip.
- Double check that your cocoa powder is unsweetened.
