Caramel Apple Dip & Our Tree is Up (Sort Of)

Wednesday, December 18, 2013

This is the easiest recipe ever. It's great for those times when you sign up to bring something to a party, leave it to the last minute, and then don't have time to cook or bake anything. All you need is a few simple ingredients and you're good to go.
P.S. I tried this dip at a party a few years ago and kept meaning to make it ever since. I don't know why I waited so long since it's a) heavenly and b) healthy (apples are a fruit you know).
- One large tub of cream cheese (500 g)
- 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
- Prepared caramel sauce
- Skor bits
- 6-8 Granny Smith apples
- 1 tbsp. lemon juice
1. Bring cream cheese to room temperature. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with brown sugar until smooth and creamy. Spread onto cute plate or tray.
2. Melt caramel sauce according to package directions and pour over the cream cheese.
3. Sprinkle Skor bits over top of the caramel.
4. Cut up apples into uniform wedges and arrange b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l-l-y on your cute plate.
5. Brush some lemon juice on the apples slices to keep them from turning brown.
In other news, we have our Christmas tree and it's (sort of) up!!! It looks great from one spot in the living room. However from all other angles it looks waaaaaay crooked. (Even with ten shims under two out of three stand legs.) The poor hubs has to empty the water out of the tree stand, lug the tree back outside, re-cut the stump, and try again. What a nice treat for him when he gets home from work today. Tee hee! Aren't real Christmas trees the best!?!?!?!
