And I’m not just being polite. When I popped this dip in my mouth Sunday I had to take a moment… you know, one of those head hung low, can’t talk right now, just give me a minute moments.
I've never had anything like this. The caramel is beyond rich and creamy and then there’s the crunch from the toffee bits and it all meets up with the crisp, tart apple!? Stop it! Just stop it!
Caramel Apple Dip
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 14-oz. container caramel dip (usually found in the produce section)
1 8-oz. bag toffee bits (such as Heath’s Bits ‘O Brickle)
Beat cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add brown sugar, sugar, vanilla and caramel dip then continue mixing until thoroughly combined. Stir in toffee bits by hand. Refrigerate in an air-tight container until ready to serve. Serve with apple slices.
TIP: Toss apple slices with lemon juice to keep them from browning when served.
