Monday Morsel from Mom (3rd Edition)

Caramel Apple Dip
Updated: October 2, 2010

When my dear friend, B got married in Oct. of 2008, my mom offered to provide a "light lunch" for B & her bridesmaids on the day of the wedding. Now, if you know my mom, she doesn't really do "light." When my mom offers to do a lunch, shower, reception, etc., she goes all out and you don't usually get your run-of-the-mill spread. She always comes up with the most delicious & unique food - specifically tailored to the guest of honors tastes.

The spread for B & her bridesmaids looked like this...

The picture above is of my mom's Caramel Apple Dip. It is OH SO HEAVENLY and was a HUGE hit with all of the girls. B even emailed me after she returned from her honeymoon asking for the recipe. It is super easy to make!


* 2 8-ounce packages cream cheese
* 1/2 to 2/3 cup light brown sugar
* 2 10-ounce package almond toffee bits, Heath bits, or brickle
* Sliced apples, grapes, pineapple...


1. Let cream cheese come to room temperature for easy mixing.

2. Beat cream cheese and brown sugar together. Stir in 1 cup toffee bits.

4. Spread in shallow serving dish. Sprinkle with additional toffee bits just before serving.

My Tid-Bits:

* You won't use the entire second package of toffee bits. Save them to pour over ice cream.

* Warning: Don't eat this alone. You'll end up consuming it all!
