Cheap and YUMMY dip for strawberries and LOTS of other fruit.
*1-8oz container cool whip, thawed
*1-8oz package cream cheese (NOT light or whipped kind, just regular cream cheese), softened
*3 tablespoons brown sugar
*kahlua to taste...I use about a shot, my mom uses about 3 shots! You can also use irish cream, or if you're looking for non-alcoholic, use high quality vanilla--but the kahlua ROCKS.
combine in a large mixing bowl, and then mix on medium-high with a hand mixer (or stand mixer, but it doesn't need that kind of power or no-hands convenience, really...) until smooth.
Best if refrigerated overnight, but still yummy if you forget and have to make it at the last minute.
I promise, you'll never think of it as "just a bowl of strawberries" again!
