my last recipe was ridiculously simple, you may as well not read any further. However, if you like no-brainer recipes that surprise you by how delicious they are for their lack of complex ingredients or directions, please continue!
This recipe was born of a left-over part of a block of cream cheese and one of my most favorite things ever: Kraft's Jet-Puffed Caramel and Vanilla Mallow Bites (This is not a sponsored post, by the way, I truly just love them!). So, just so you know *exactly* what you are looking for, I have a really bad ingredient photo:
-4 oz. (1/2 a block) of cream cheese
-12 Caramel & Vanilla Mallow Bites
-fruit of your choice: apples, bananas, strawberries, this would also be good with graham crackers!Or on brownies, or ice cream... ;)
Cut your block of cream cheese into 4-6 rough chunks into a large microwave safe dish. Add about 6 of the marshmallows. Heat on high in the microwave for 1 minute. When you pull it out, you will see why I recommended a large dish.
I actually think you could use any flavor of marshmallow you like (regular ones would be a teeny bit sweet and bland for my tastes) I think it would be really fun with the chocolate swirled ones, or the strawberry ones. There are even ice cream flavored ones... so many choices! However, I love the caramel vanilla ones so much, I don't know if I would be willing to try anything else...
