Based on the five-star reviews, I took a risk and made this for a party, without having tested it first. The sauce was EXCELLENT and a huge hit with my guests. For those of you wondering how far ahead you can make this, I made the sauce about an hour before serving it to our guests and reserved half of it in the refrigerator. The next day, I served the leftover sauce mixed with cubed fruit and it was still in very good condition (no signs of separating. Should mention that I forgot to include the pineapple juice, but the dip was still great. Highly recommend this recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Made this tray, with the dip in the pineapple. WOW! This is worth the extra 5 minutes it takes to whip the cream. My guests were so impressed, they were putting the dip into little cups to eat with a spoon. I sliced watermelon and fanned the slices along the top of the pineapple, left the leaves on it, and fanned cantaloupe slices in front of the watermelon. Piled up strawberries, the pineapple bits, grapes and kiwi. I have had so many compliments, thank you for the recipe. I would give this 6 stars if there was a sixth one! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Paula did it again! The dip is amazing. Definitely go full throttle...and not use Cool Whip. It's worth a few extra minutes. My friends gave this dip two thumbs up. item not reviewed by moderator and published
