Toffee Dip

Last Friday was my birthday, and I was surprised during lunch at work with a tray of fresh fruit, devil's food mini bundt cakes and this incredibly toffee dip, which was served with Granny Smith apples. If you're a fan of Fiddle Faddle or Crunch 'n Munch, you will be addicted to this after one bite. I ate it on just about everything on Friday - apples, strawberries, grapes and chocolate cake. When I made it at home, I bought pretzel rods for dipping and it's great on those as well. So here's the recipe, thanks to our superstar receptionist.

What you need:
  • 8 oz. package of cream cheese - softened (fat free did not work as well as regular, unfortunately)
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup Heath toffee bits
What you do:
  • Stir them all together if the cream cheese is soft enough, or use a blender on the lowest setting
This dip is perfect for being a portable treat - scoop it into a container and take it with fresh fruit, pretzels, cookies or anything else you might like. Bring along to a party or picnic, work function, etc. It's easy and inexpensive - two things we all love!
