Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned to Ashley's blog, Rainstorms and Love Notes. Her blog was pretty new to me (though she was assigned to my blog last month and made my Baked "Fried" Pickles!), and I really enjoyed browsing through it. As usual, my list of recipes to make grew with each page I read through. I narrowed it down to choosing between Broccoli Cheddar Dip, Banana Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting, Pumpkin Roll, and Apple Toffee Dip. Ultimately I chose to make the apple dip, but I'll definitely be making the others too!
Ever since my friend brought apples with caramel dip to a get together, I've been obsessed, and that's been my nightly snack. However, since making this Toffee Apple Dip, caramel has been kicked to the curb. I shared it with some friends the other night, and they all loved it and requested the recipe. They even agreed that it's better than the caramel dip, and even though we were all stuffed from dinner, we couldn't stop eating this!
This dip was so simple to put together, and it tastes absolutely amazing. Even Summer ate it, along with apples, and she normally doesn't like apples, so you know it was good! The only thing I changed was cutting the amount of sugar in half. Partially due to laziness on my part--I didn't want to go downstairs and bring up a 25 pound bag of sugar just for 1/2 cup--but mostly because after trying the dip with just brown sugar, I decided it was sweet enough for me. Give it a try with some fresh apples, or even bananas, you won't regret it!
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup toffee bits
Combine ingredients until smooth. Serve with fresh fruit.
