When apple season hits, I know exactly what to bring to a get-together with friends. This Apple Crack Dip is always a hit and some of my friends refer to it as "apple crack" because it's just that addictive.
I originally had this Apple Dip at a party and loved it so much that I searched out the recipe on the internet. I found one that is similar on the Taste of Home website. Taste of Home calls it Apple Brickle Dip. Here's the link:
Apple Crack Dip
1package (8-oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 bag English Toffee Bits or Almond Brickle Chips (I use Heath Bar Chips)
3 medium tart apples cut into wedges (I like to use Granny Smith apples)
Blend cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla in food processor.
Stir in about 1/2 cup of the Heath Bar Chips. Put in bowl and top with another 1/2 cup of Heath Bar Chips.
Serve with apple wedges. Don't forget to dip your cut apples in lemon water. It will keep them from turning brown too soon, especially if you are taking this to a party. After dipping in lemon water, put apple wedges on paper towels to dry out. Blot apples gently with paper towel if needed.
This recipe doubles easily. If you are going to a party, double it. When you run out of apples, people will eat the rest with a spoon! Beware! This stuff is addictive!
