  8. I made this fruit dip last night and we couldn't dip fruit in it b/c it was like jello. I followed the directions so I don't know why it never turned out.

    1. Danielle, I am sorry it didn't turn out for you. I agree that it is quite stiff but we still enjoyed it with our fruit. If you like the flavour but would like a softer consistency you could add more water when making it and cut back on the butter which of course becomes solid once it is cold.

    2. I have edited the recipe to create a softer set to the dip.
