In a small microwaveable bowl, heat the fruit spread on 100 percent power (high) for 20 seconds, or until slightly melted.

Add the whipped topping, vanilla, and cinnamon, stirring briskly until smooth. (The volume of the whipped topping will decrease.) Serve with the pineapple and mango for dipping or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to two days before serving.
