Butterfinger or Heath Bar Fruit Dip
Make this fruit dip with Butterfingers or Heath Bars. The orinal recipe calls for mascarpone soft cheese, but most campus grocers wont carry this buttery, smooth and slightly sweetspread. Thus, I substituted cream cheese and added Vanilla Greek yoghurt.

Great with any fruit!

Fork

Ingredients:
4 oz reduced-fat cream cheese
1 cup Vanilla Greek yoghurt
1/4 cup orange juice or milk
4 Fun Size Butterfingers /Heath Bars
Fruit--apples, grapes, strawberries, pineapple chunks on a skewer.


Instructions:
1. Wash your hands. 
2. Whisk cream cheese, yoghurt, and liquid into smooth texture.


3. Adjust consistency with more liquid or yoghurt. 
4. Prep you platter of fruit or whatever you have on hand.
