Always a hit at parties, just don't mistake it as a healthy party food!
Caramel Apple Dip
1 Brick Cream Cheese
1/3-1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Zest of one Lemon or Lime* Optional
1 Cup Skor Chips, or 3-4 smashed Skor Bars
About one cup caramel sauce
About 6-8 Medium Apples, I like to use Granny Smith
Allow cream cheese to stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes or so to soften. Place the softened cream cheese in a large bowl along with the sugar, lemon juice, and vanilla extract (and the lemon/lime zest if you are using it). Beat with an electric mixer until creamy and well blended.
Using a rubber spatula transfer the cream cheese mixture to a deep sided platter or plate and smooth into an even layer.
Using another spatula carefully spread the caramel sauce over top of the cream cheese mixture, being careful to keep the layers separate.
Sprinkle the Skor bits over top of the caramel. Cover dish with plastic wrap and keep in the fridge until ready to serve. Can be made a few days ahead.
When ready to serve, rinse and dry the apples and slice nicely. Serve apple slices in a bowl along side the dip.
For a great morning I suggest:
