Cream Cheese, Brown Sugar, Caramel, and Toffee Bars...Oh My....

A friend from years ago shared this recipe with me and since then I've used it frequently for gatherings and have shared it with others. It's gets rave reviews every time, as well as repeat invitations. 

Below is a recipe for what I've named 

The Apple Dip
Satisfies 10-12 Adults

Prep to Serve Time:
15 Minutes - the apple cutting takes the longest

1 Bar of Cream Cheese, soften (1/3 fat ok)
1/2 of Light Brown Sugar

4 large Green Apples, sliced 
1/4 or so of Creamy Caramel 
4 Skor or Toffee Candy Bars
1 Pie Dish or a Serving Plate

Step 1:
Combine in a small bowl your Brown Sugar and Softened Cream Cheese

Step 2:
Smear Cream Cheese mixture into/onto your serving dish

Step 3:
Open your Caramel Tub (I try to use Low-Fat when available, makes me feel better)
Grab a large Dollop with your Spatula and begin to spear a layer of it onto the cream cheese mixture

It should look like this when finished.

Step 4:
Break open all candy bars and place into your processor. If a processor isn't available, in the past I've placed all broken candy pieces into a ziplock bag.  I've then place the bag in between a dish town and used the flat side of a spoon to mash up the pieces finely.

After mixing it should, can, look like this; some finely chopped and some pieces still large.

Step 5:
Remove all large pieces and place to the side.  Sprinkle finely chopped candy over top of dish to evenly cover the mixture below.  Add remaining large pieces to the processor and mix again.

Step 6:
Wash and dry your apples and begin to cut them into wedges.  You can use an apple cutter but I've found that it's the same amount of time.  I like to cut them clean, meaning remove any core pieces from the apple.

Once you've finished cutting, place your apples into an air tight container and marinate them in 1/4 cup of lemon juice to preserve freshness and prevent browning. 7-up works as well.

When ready to serve, assemble apple wedges all the way around the brim of your dish.

  8. Just made this and it is delicious! I actually had the caramel sundae syrup already in the fridge so I used that instead. I decided I really like this technique because I could just squirt it on and not have to worry with speading the thicker caramel. Thank you so much for this recipe! I can't wait for my girl friends to try it. Not only is is super yummy....but it is SO easy!
