The base of this dip is made with cream cheese, marshmallow fluff, powdered sugar, and 100% pure maple syrup. After those ingredients are beaten together mini marshmallows and red and green sprinkles get carefully folded in.
Though when it comes to the mix-ins you can really have some fun! Add in mini M&Ms, mini chocolate chips, or any Christmas candy your family enjoys!
Then if you remember, Buddy makes spaghetti for breakfast! So for a fun, festive presentation, you can use chow mein noodles to give that spaghetti look.
All I do is place the dip in the center of a large platter. Then I add chow mein noodles around the edge along with a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips!
