This is one of the simplest recipes ever, but sometimes the simplest combinations make the tastiest food. This dip is a great addition to an appetizer or dessert buffet. Creamy, crunchy and sweet, enjoy this dip with sliced Granny Smith apples that you toss in a little bit of lemon water. My sister-in-law Erin originally made this dip many years ago and I knew I needed the recipe upon first bite!
|Apples with Toffee Dip|| |
- ¾ cup light brown sugar
- ½ cup confectioner's sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 oz. cream cheese (or Neufchatel)
- ½ cup Heath Bits O' Brickle Toffee Bits, or similar
- 3 large Granny Smith apples
- 1 lemon
- In a medium-sized bowl, mix the brown sugar, confectioner's sugar, vanilla and cream cheese well with a fork until it is all combined. Use some muscle, it takes a little strength to mix it all.
- Add the toffee bits close to serving time to keep them nice and crunchy. Mix well.
- Wash and slice the three apples and toss in a large bowl with half of a squeezed lemon mixed with a tablespoon of water.
- For a nice presentation, take a glass pie plate and spread the dip with a spatula in a nice even layer in the dish, leaving the outer inch or so empty. Place the apple slices all around the dish so they are just touching the dip. Enjoy!
