Flea Flicker Fruit Fluff

Flea Flicker:
A trick play in football that occurs when the QB hands the ball off laterally to a teammate, usually a running back, who fakes a run but before crossing the line of scrimmage (the blue line across the field when you're watching on TV), tosses the ball back to the QB who then finds a receiver down the field to pass.

Ok remember when you were younger and little Johnny stole the Barbie you were playing with during recess? Then he tosses it to Bobby who is standing next to him a few feet away and just as you start running to Bobby he tosses it back to Johnny. Now as you're running back to Johnny and thinking "Great, I hate Monkey in the Middle!" he throws it forward across the playground to that kid who's always picking his nose. Newsflash - the boys just pulled a flea flicker on you and poor Barbie now has boogers in her hair.

#LadyNFLTip: The Flea Flicker was created by University of Illinois coach Bob Zuppke who named the play after the imagery of "the quick flicking action of a dog getting rid of fleas"

I'm going to assume Barbie is a classy lady and enjoys Grand Marnier so I'd like to share one of the many amazing recipes that my mother picked up while swapping ideas with fellow military wives and simultaneously wiping my tears when the boys next door would steal our toys...

Flea Flicker Fruit Fluff
Small jar of Fluff
8oz block of cream cheese (softened)
Grand Marnier

Mix fluff and cream cheese in a small bowl until smooth. Next add Grand Marnier to taste. You'll probably only need about 1-2 tsp.

That it!

Simple right? Serve with some fruit like strawberries, grapes, pineapple, cantaloupe, etc. and you are all set! Once you try this I can guarantee you'll never go back to store bought fruit dips again - your guests won't even know what hit 'em :)
