This Apple Dip combines crunchy toffee bits, creamy cream cheese and the sweetness of brown sugar. Just add in some apples and I guarantee you won’t be able to stop eating this stuff!
I have been making this toffee apple dip for years, ever since my friend Dawn showed up at my door with a cute little basket full of all the ingredients needed to make the dip, including the apples. Everyone needs a thoughtful friend like Dawn. This dip is perfect for an after school snack, a party treat or really anytime. You have been warned though, once you start eating this it’s very hard to stop!
It is a perfect fall treat with all the wonderful apples that are available right now. But you really don’t need apples, according to my friend who tasted it at a party where I serve it, all you need is a spoon!
How to Make Toffee Apple Dip
Cream Cheese – make sure your cream cheese is softened. I let it sit out of the refrigerator for an hour or so before mixing up.
Sugar – I use a combination of white sugar and brown sugar.
Toffee Bits – You can find the toffee bits in the baking aisle, right next to the chocolate chips. You will usually find plain toffee bits and also toffee bits covered in chocolate. I’ve used both and they both work great!
Apples – I love using a tart, granny smith apple but I have also used Honey Crisp and Gala. Use whatever your favorite apple is. I like using a combination of different color apples for a prettier presentation.
How Do I Keep Apples from Turning Brown?
Most people will tell you to coat them in lemon juice. That method works o.k. but I’ve discovered an even better way to keep your apples from turning brown. After slicing your apples, put them into a bowl full of cool water with salt – just a teaspoon or so of salt. Submerge the apples for a minute or two and then store them in a zippered plastic bag or air tight container. No brown apples. I’ve done it the day ahead of time and still had pretty apples the next day!!
Caution: It is addicting and you may find yourself consuming the entire thing by yourself!!
