Margarita Dip (non-alcoholic, of course!)

Need a quick, yummy, summery dip? I came across this and it's DELICIOUS! This would be a great dip for a Mexican-themed party or any summer get together. Serve it in a bowl or margarita glass with a sugar-coated rim. I think this would also make a great non-alcoholic dessert served in margarita glasses for the kiddos (and for the adults like me who don't drink:)).


Margarita Dip
Ingredients:
8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup frozen margarita drink mix, thawed
2 Tbsp. orange juice
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream, whipped

Directions: In a medium bowl, beat together softened cream cheese, margarita mix, orange juice and powdered sugar until smooth. Fold whipped cream into mixture until well blended. Cover and chill 1 hour to blend flavors.
To serve: dip rim of glass bowl or cocktail glass in grenadine syrup (or corn syrup). Shake off excess and dip in colored sugar. Spoon dip into bowl and serve with your favorite fruits!
