I absolutely love apple everything, and apple season is in full swing here in the mountains of North Carolina. Orchards are bursting with fresh, juicy apples and my taste buds are salivating for them. So, with apples on my mind this month, I dug up one of my favorite recipes for homemade apple dip. When I was a kid, I loved dipping apple slices in caramel dip. Who am I kidding? I still love doing that. This vanilla toffee apple dip reminds me so much of that flavor, even though caramel is not one of the ingredients. Not only is this dip nostalgic of childhood, but it’s absolutely scrumptious and always a huge hit at parties.
- 1 8oz. block of cream cheese (softened)
- 1 8oz. bag of Heath Bit-o-Brickle toffee bits (found in baking section of grocery store near chocolate chips)
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated white sugar
- Allow the cream cheese to sit in room temperature until softened
- Combine the cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla.
- Mix until well-blended. Stir in the toffee bits. I use a little less than the full 8 oz.
- Continue mixing until everything smooth and blended.
- Refrigerate in a glass bowl with a lid. Serve with apples of your choice.
This simple recipe is adored by family members and party goers of all ages. It works great as an appetizer dish or a dessert. Whether it’s a work party, bridal shower, baby shower, and dinner party, you can’t go wrong with this scrumptious and festive dip. Happy apple eating!
