Gonna make this soon. Question for those who use marshmallow cream. Do you mix it with the cream cheese, etc? Or, do you just make a layer of marshmallow cream between the cream cheese-peanut butter mixture and fudge topping?

Leave it to a lady from Coralville to know how to use apples from the harvest. The added flavors are so smooth

Excellent! Several people asked for the recipe. Like another reviewer, I used marshmallow cream rather than miniature marshmallows.

LOVED IT!!! I used marshmallow creme instead of the mini marshmallows... also used bananas, YUM, and asian pears. I can't wait for fresh fruit!!

This is soooo good! I leave out the marshmallows. (They're not something I usually have on hand and I don't think they add anything to the dip.) If you don't happen to have peanuts to chop to sprinkle on top, don't worry. It'll still be a hit. This recipe is such a favorite everywhere I take it that I've lost count of how many times I've made it!

Fantastic! I brought this to my granddaughter's birthday party and it was a huge hit w/the kids especially. I replaced the choc sauce and marshmallows with applesauce and dried banana chips to cut back on the sugar. It was still awesome and made a beautiful presentation.

I make this for any family or friends gathering and am always requested to make this dip. It is fantastic and I've handed out the recipe to at least 20 people - you can't go wrong with this.
