DIY Tutorial: How To Make Summer Fruit Dip Favors

If you haven't seen Stacey W's U Pick Party, you are in for a treat. It's an end of school party she threw at a local hydroponic farm. I know... cool.

Stacey of Elle Belle Creative did almost all of this gorgeous party herself, including making these yummy fruit dip favors for her guests. What a great favor for a summer party. I love edible favors!

So without further ado, here's Stacey telling us how she did it...

There are usually more parents at one of my parties than kids, so I always try to include them in party festivities, and I like to send them home with a little favor of their own, too.

Fruit Dip fit the bill perfectly since the kids all picked strawberries at the farm that day!

I found a great recipe online, changed it a bit to include one of Elle's favorite flavors, almond, and got creative with the packaging.

This dip is great for a party because it's inexpensive to make, delicious, and makes a big batch! Here's the recipe for Elle's Famous Fruit Dip:


  • 3oz package of instant vanilla pudding
  • 3/4 cup milk (we used almond milk)
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 8oz container extra creamy Cool Whip


Mix together the pudding mix, milk, and almond extract.  Fold in the Cool Whip.  Chill 1 hour before serving.  Makes 4 cups.

I printed the recipe on craft paper (a printable of the recipe formatted for the jar lids available for free on Elle Belle Creative here) & cut them out, spooned the dip into pint sized quilted mason jars, put the metal disc, put the recipe, an adorable Mud & Twig handmade label on top, & screwed the lid on.

To finish them up, I  stamped "thanks" on a little wooden spoon, and tied it on with a bit of twine around the lids.  I packed the jars up in a little crate and put them out for the parents to take as they were leaving the party.

Gorgeous, Stacey, thank you!! I love the crate you displayed them in, too!

Again, if you haven't seen the rest of the summer party, take a look. And to learn more about Stacey and read about her creative inspirations, please check out her blog, Elle Belle Creative.
