Toffee Dip with Apples



I got this recipe years ago from Glenda at church.
If you are asked to bring a fruit platter to a function and the fruit is insanely expensive, this is a sweet solution and very good. It disappears very quickly.
Dip the apples in lemon juice or pineapple juice to keep them from going brown, or just keep cutting as they get eaten. I usually count on at least 1/2 an apple per person, but often it works out to 1 apple per person.
8 oz. pkg of cream cheese (light is good)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tbsp. vanilla
3 skor bars crushed
chopped peanuts are an options, I just never have tried that
Mix all of the ingredients together with a hand mixer and store in the fridge. The longer it sits the better it is.
If you have any left overs of the dip, use as a spread on toast or bagels as a little breakfast treat.

  1. I've made a delicious dip very similar to this one and my mom taught me to dip the apples in gingerale rather than lemon juice, same great results but without the tang of the sour juice.

  4. ginger ale sounds like a great idea!
    i will have to try that, the pineapple juice is good too but often when you have a party you have giger ale on hand for the punch anyway so thanks for the tip.
