Toffee Apple Dip

What do you do when you have 2 pounds of granny smith apples in the refrigerator and they're gonna go bad if you don't use them up?

You make Toffee apple dip and feed it to the kiddies, of course!

(What did you think I was going to say? Make Pie? Um.. no, at least not right now when it's about 107° in my apartment and if I turn on the oven I will surely melt, and that would be a really nasty mess nobody would want to clean up)

This is a really simple recipe and I have most of this stuff on hand all the time.

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 (11 ounce) package Skor English toffee bits or heath toffee pieces

  1. Beat cream cheese, sugars and vanilla together until fluffy.
  2. Stir in toffee chips by hand.
  3. Serve with sliced apples.
Sometimes I think I have the only kid that does not like red apples, he just really loves the tartness of the Granny smith apples, and don't even try to feed him a golden delicious, he thinks they're "mushy and gross" (but they're perfect for my cranberry sauce, which y'all will get on a later date)

Now *this* is a great use for granny smiths! I was stupid enough to attempt a pie a few weeks ago. It was delicious, but homely, lol. Need to work on that.

My kids would love this dip!

ps--thanks for stopping by at my blog!
