Heath Toffee Cream Cheese Apple Dip

This dip is out-of-this world delicious!  Enough said…or is it?  I could go on and on…everyone that tries it does!  One of the main reason behind serving this with apples is because it eliminates the need for utensils.  Using a slice of an apple helps you get some of your daily servings of fruit in.  You will learn early on that you should get a good scoop of it on each slice, since double-dipping is socially unacceptable…and yes, you will have to keep an eye on the dip – the dip-partakers might just forget their manners!  You could always encourage your guests to use plates, but you might want to double this recipe or there won’t be enough to go around.  If there does happen to be any left, lock the frig or it will mysteriously disappear overnight.  Yep…this Heath Toffee Cream Cheese Apple Dip is THAT good!

Heath Toffee Cream Cheese Apple Dip

2 – 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar, well packed

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1/2 a 8 oz. package Heath Toffee Candy Bits

Let the cream sit out until it softens.  Add the two sugars and the vanilla. Whip together until smooth and creamy.  Add about 1/2 the package of the Heath Toffee bits and whip it up a little more.  Chill for a few hours or overnight.  This will soften the bits and you will end up with little toffee pockets in the dip. 

Here’s a great tip for keeping your apples from turning brown.  I have always used lemon juice to keep the apples from turning brown, but then I read a tip on Pinterest.  Pour ginger ale into a bowl, and then as you slice your apple, soak them in the ginger ale or lemon lime soda for 10 minutes. 

I put a plate on top to keep the apples submersed…the apples on top held it all down.  It doesn’t make the apples quite as tangy as the lemon juice, which I am used to, but I really liked it!

Right before you serve, sprinkle a few Heath Toffee bits on the top of the dip. This would be a welcome treat for a family night, bridal or baby shower, or really any occasion where people come to graze!  Easy to whip up and gone in a flash!

    How many servings is this recipe?

    • Helen says:

      Hmmmmmm…I haven’t had anyone ask that before. If you add the measurements together, it seems like there would be about 3 cups of dip. I know that sounds like a lot, but you almost have to serve apples with it to keep the guests from eating it with a spoon! If you are serving it as one of several items on the menu, it should serve 12 – 16…that’s my guess.

        Thank you that helps making it for a huge event for 300 people and trying to figure out exact servings.

          Okay, hopefully this will help. We did this for a group of about 200, and there were LOTS of other appetizers. My cohort said that she quadrupled the recipe, but she and I talked about it and think you might want to 7 or 8 times it. As far as the apples go, she gets one 12-pk of those nice big apples (that Costco has in the plastic boxes) per batch of dip, so I think I under-guessed how many it would serve, although I don’t think we had dip left, but we did have some cut apples left over. So if you if you bought 7 dozen big apples (84), divided that by 300, it comes out to just a little more than 1/4 apple per person…when you break it down to 2 or 3 slices per person, that doesn’t sound like a lot, does it:) She did half the apples in lemon juice/water and the other half in ginger ale. We also decided that we like the ginger ale best for keeping the apples from going brown. If I were you, I would certainly test that out ahead of time to see what YOU prefer. Good news? You can make the dip ahead of time. The apples? Not so early. One of those apple-corer-slicer thingie would certainly help. Depending on what kind of an event you’re doing, we have the motto that it’s better to have a little leftover than not to have enough! Good luck…I’m sure it will be a hit!
