Toffee Apple Dip

Well, it’s October already!  The days are starting to get much shorter, the nights are getting longer, and the air is getting crisper.  I drove down the roads this week near where I live and realized that the trees weren’t quite as green and there were some leaves blowing across the road.  That’s when it  hit me that summer is really gone.  I’m hoping for an Indian Summer!  We normally get one in October or November so I’m keeping my fingers crossed for one more week of summer weather before the snow flies.  Yes, I went there (said the “S” word).  Either way, it won’t stop me from wearing flip-flops when I shouldn’t be wearing flip flops (basically until the snow covers the ground).  There is just something really nice about wearing sandals when you shouldn’t be wearing sandals.

 This dip takes two minutes to make and I must say, it is really good.  It would be an excellent idea to make for a potluck or buffet…or when some family comes to visit you from out of town, which is what I did :)  I really liked the flavor the cream cheese has with the brown sugar mixed in.  I think I will make this a new fall tradition since it is a great way to enjoy your favorite apples anytime.  You can also just eat it with a spoon – no apples required!

Toffee Apple Dip

Toffee Apple Dip.  Perfect anf quick dip to make for a snack at a fall party.

INGREDIENTS:

1 package cream cheese, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar (I used dark)
½ cup English toffee bits

6-7 cored and sliced apples for dipping (tossed with a little lemon or pineapple juice to prevent browning).  You can also use pretzels!

DIRECTIONS:

In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese and brown sugar until well combined. Stir in the toffee bits.  Serve with sliced apples.  Store the dip covered in the refrigerator until ready to serve.  I topped it with some extra toffee bits.

    That would be so delicious. I have never had a toffee apple dip before! I can see how this would be a big hit in Autumn with the weather getting cooler and the abundance of apples in the stores xx
