Tempting Toffee Treat

This summer seems to be a summer for potlucks and I am loving it. However, the problem with potlucks is that inevitably everyone brings one of two dishes: a salad or a dessert. So after being to a gazzilion potlucks where I brought cookies or brownies or whatever I wanted to spice it up a bit. I decided to make this delicious toffee-esque dish that you eat by dipping apple slices in. This recipe is great because it is super easy and takes literally 10 minutes to make… including slicing up the apples. It is so yummy and it actually still tastes good days after you bring the leftovers home.
Here’s what you need:
  • 16 oz of cream cheese (two 8oz blocks are easiest…)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 packages of Heath Bar bits (find these right next to the chocolate chips in the baking aisle)
  • Granny Smith apples
This is literally the easiest recipe ever. Mix the cream cheese, brown sugar, vanilla and one package of bits together (I used a handmixer but do whatever is easiest for you). Spread in a dish (I used a 8×8 glass baking pan) and cover with the other package of Heath Bar bits. Keep this in the fridge until you’re ready to serve. Slice up your apples and spray with a lemon juice/water mix to keep them from browning. I used an apple slicer (like this one) and then cut the slices in half again. I cut up 8 apples and the dip and apple slices should run out around the same time. 
Before adding the second package of bits.
All done and ready to be devoured!

Good luck! Enjoy watching guests fawn over this and feel good about serving a fruit with dessert.
