Double Chocolate Fruit Dip
Posted by Rini
3 squares (1 ounce each) white chocolate for baking
1 container (8 ounces) frozen whipped topping, thawed
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons chocolate-flavored syrup
7 cups assorted fresh fruit dippers such as apple or pear wedges; banana or
peach slices; or whole strawberries
Preheat oven to 400 F. Lightly spray 4 (7-inch) flour tortillas with water. Combine 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar and 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon; sprinkle
over tortillas. Using a pizza cutter, cut each tortilla into 8 wedges; place in
single layer on large cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned
and crisp. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely.
Microwave white chocolate and half of the whipped
topping, uncovered, on HIGH 1 minute, stirring after each 20-second interval,
until melted and smooth.
In a bowl, combine cream cheese with white chocolate mixture; whisk until
smooth. Fold in remaining whipped topping.
Place half of the dip into chilled bowl; drizzle with 1/4 cup of the
chocolate syrup, forming an even layer. Cover chocolate syrup layer with
remaining dip; forming a smooth surface. Drizzle remaining chocolate syrup in a
spiral pattern over dip. Using cake tester, drag through chocolate syrup,
forming a swirled pattern.
4. Prepare fruit for dipping. Place a bowl in center of chilled a platter;
arrange fruit around dip.
