Alternatively, you can use marshmallow instead of brown sugar. For this recipe, you need an 8-ounce package of softened cream cheese and a 7-ounce jar of marshmallow creme. Using an electric mixer, combine the cream cheese and marshmallow creme until they appear well-mixed. Serve with fresh fruit.
Also, consider using powdered sugar instead of brown sugar. Take 8 ounces of softened cream cheese, and mix in a bowl on low speed until creamy. Add 2 tablespoons of water and 4 cups of powdered sugar. Continue mixing on low for one minute, scrape the bowl, and then mix on high speed for two more minutes. Add in your preferred fruits, and serve. Refrigerate when storing.
