Toffee-Apple Dip

Fall Season Sweet Toffee-Apple Dip Recipe & Video

Toffee-Apple Dip
Fall asks for family and friend gatherings around delicious food. Today we bring you a super-easy to make toffee apple dip. Try this simple recipe the next time you are entertaining guests and see why this classic combination never gets old.

Toffee dips pair perfectly with fresh fruit, but it’s no coincidence that apples are its best friends. Pick your to-go apples for dipping. Ours is Granny Smith apples because their sour distinct tart flavor compliments the sweetness of the dip so well. Gala and Honeycrisp apples are also delicious! Now that you have the apples, let’s look at the ingredients for the dip:

Ingredients needed:

1 8oz package cream cheese
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp vanilla
1 8oz package Milk Chocolate Heath Toffee Bits

Start by softening the cream cheese. Mix all the other ingredients, except Toffee Bits, in a mixer until blended. Then just add the candy bits and fold them in. Pro tip: you might want to save some bits for garnishing later.

This recipe is easy enough even for two busy orchids like ourselves. Just imagine how those toffee bits offer crunchiness to the dip. It’s sweet perfection. Every bite tastes heavenly since the creamy texture of the dip clashes with the rawness of the apples. Remember you can use lemon or pineapple juice over the apple slices to keep them from browning.

The difficult part is not standing there and devour the whole thing with a spoon before it ever meets an apple slice. To eliminate double dipping, we suggest you slice the apples thin. Caution when consuming: highly addictive.

No doubt this is a yummy recipe and will be guaranteed to be a hit at your next party. A crowd pleaser, like most classics, this will soon become your favorite apple dip. Beware: guests will go nuts over it!
