It is almost Thanksgiving and I have an easy 3 ingredient dip/dessert for you to have on hand if you’re worried about what you’ve planned to make. Or maybe you need one more thing to keep the masses fed.
I saw this apple cheesecake dip on pinterest and thought it sounded awesome. It is one of those foods that just can’t LOOK as good as it tastes. I added it to a dinner of appetizers and it was awesome.
Apple Cheesecake Dip
Adapted from Cooking Classy
8oz cream cheese
¼ cup caramel ice cream topping
¼ cup toffee pieces
apples for dipping
Allow the cream cheese to soften slightly.
Beat cream cheese, caramel sauce, and toffee bits.
Serve with sliced apples.
This has such great flavor for just a few ingredients. I liked the apple dippers but graham crackers would be good, or animal crackers.
The original recipe has the apples dipped into the cream cheese dip and then into crushed graham crackers. I added the toffee in the dip instead for a pop of crunch.
This is a crowd pleaser and a super easy one to whip up. Something about it says fall to me, but apples are available all the time so I’m not sure where my season-ness is coming from. I definitely recommend this dip for an easy appetizer or light dessert. I love to be sure there are a few simple items when I’m hosting for an easy check mark on your list.
Tip: a few drips of lemon juice will help the apples not to brown. Prep the dip and refrigerate until you serve it. Slice the apples when you’re ready to eat!
