Blair and I were swimming in apples since we had gone apple picking. I used up the final ones this past weekend in an apple pie (updated picture of this coming soon). Of course, one way we enjoyed them was eating them straight for lunch, but sometimes I like to smother my apples with something. There is always the standard peanut butter route, but when you have peanut butter and jelly for lunch, you need a little something else. I had pinned this a few weeks ago and knew that I wanted to make this for when we were overwhelmed with apples. We enjoyed this dip as dessert and I also packed it in my lunch a few times. I scaled back the recipe to only make half of it because with just the two of us, there was no way we would be finishing it. I loved the combo of the sweet cream cheese mixture, the smooth caramel, and the crunch from the toffee bits. It was one heavenly bite with the sweetness of the apples. This would be the perfect dessert for a Fall party that you are either hosting or attending.
A quick housekeeping note, this weekend my blog will be undergoing a redesign so I may have to take a few days off of blogging. Sorry sisters, Aunt Donna, and Bethany for messing up your daily routine, I promise to make up for it :). Come back soon for a Halloween inspired dessert and some other great recipes too! I am so excited about this redesign, please bear with me as the blog undergoes some changes!
