Move over, caramel dip!! I absolutely adore caramel dip, but this toffee apple dip has long been a favorite of mine. It’s incredibly easy to make (we’re talking 3 minutes), and you just can’t go wrong with anything made with cream cheese. ☺ It’s intended for apples, but (if you’re my husband) you might just eat it with a spoon!
As soon as I tasted this dip for the first time years ago, I knew it was going to make into my recipe binder–which includes only our tried and true, family favorites. It’s been there ever since. ☺ The weather here was so fall-ish this weekend, that it seemed the perfect time to make it!
I love it because it is so easy, it’s always a hit, and yes, it does help encourage some apple eating along the way. You really can make this all year long, but it’s perfect for fall parties, gatherings, football games, or for no reason at all! Kids love it, and it’s fun to serve at school fall or Halloween parties. I’ll even send a small container in my kids’ lunches every once in awhile, as a special treat.
*As a note, when you’re buying the Heath Toffee Bits, it’s not the chocolate covered ones, it’s the plain toffee bits, “Bits O’ Brickle”. I’ve found them at Walmart, and my local grocery store.
- 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
- ½ c. brown sugar
- ¼ c. white sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- ½ bag Heath Toffee Bits (Bits O' Brickle)
- Combine the cream cheese and sugars, mix well. Stir in the vanilla. Add the Heath Toffee Bits (NOT the chocolate covered ones, just plain toffee bits) and stir until combined. Serve with sliced apples!
