Hints:

* With all of the above recipes you may add desired nuts like almonds or walnuts.
* You may use sugar free pudding mix, fat free sourcream, fat free cream cheese, and fat free milk where it calls for thes ingredients.
* I personally don't care for Amaretto, but if you like it you can use this instead of vanilla if desired.
* These dips can be served with fruits or crackers.
* You may substitute fruit yogurt for sour cream.
* You may use fruit cream cheese instead of plain cream cheese.
