Apples & Toffee Caramel Dip

Go Seahawks!!!!!!!!!! I’m reposting this as an awesome super bowl game day snack. Totally unhealthy, totally delicious. Super easy to make. Enjoy!

This dip pairs especially well with Honeycrisp (or a tarter) apple!

Blog apples caramel dip


  • 1 brick cream cheese
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar
  • 1/4 c. white sugar
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 bag toffee chips (like Heath toffee bits)

Mix first four ingredients well and fold in chips. Let chill for at least an hour. This makes very well a day in advance.

Honeycrisp apples are amazing with this dip!
