My creation for today is a fun party food that’s great for kids of all ages. Ghostly Gooey Dip is not only delicious, but it adds a very cute touch to parties. It is definitely appropriate for the younger kids, it isn’t scary. Serve with pretzels, graham crackers or cut fruit.
This is a simple 3 ingredient dip, yup that’s all it takes folks. Grab your electric hand mixer, and get mixing. What totally makes Ghostly Gooey Dip over the top cute is the addition of some friendly little ghosts from Wilton. Aren’t they fun?
In addition to the ghosts, I simply used some orange gel food color and swirled it around with a toothpick. Next a sprinkling of sprinkles and there ya have it, Ghostly Gooey Dip! Easy, fun and ready for a party!
Some tips for making Ghostly Gooey Dip:
- Add in any flavor extract you wish to make this dip flavored.
- Make the dip portion ahead of time and refrigerate. Decorate just prior to serving.
- I added a large dollop of Cool-Whip in the center to elevate the ghost decorations.
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 7 oz container marshallow fluff
- 4 oz Cool-Whip (plus additional for under ghost decorations)
- Orange gel food color
- Halloween sprinkles
- Ghost decorations
- With electric hand mixer beat cream cheese and until light and fluffy. Add in marshmallow fluff and beat until mixed.
- Beat in Cool-Whip until just blended, spoon into serving bowl.
- To decorate: Using a toothpick swirl orange gel food color on top, add sprinkles. Put a large dollop of Cool-Whip in center of bowl and place Ghost decorations on top. Serve immediately.
