Cream Cheese Toffee Dip {Guest Post}

Print Post

Today’s guest post is from Krissy at the Dainty Chef.  Her blog is full of delicious recipes and beautiful photos.  You must check out her Pumpkin Spice Trifle, Apple Pie Cupcakes, and Brownie Batter Ice Cream,  I’m so glad she was willing to share a delicious recipe with Keep It Sweet readers.  Be sure to check out her blog.


Hello there Keep it Sweet readers. My name is Krissy, the Dainty Chef, my blog is where I share recipes that are family favorites and ones that I stumble upon in magazines, cookbooks, and other blogs.  Lauren was looking for several guest bloggers, and since I love her blog I jumped at the opportunity.  I have to mention that Lauren and I also both used the same caterers for our weddings, we have the same taste in great food! Thank you Lauren for this opportunity to share with your readers.

On my blog I try to keep a balance of savory and sweet recipes, but sometimes I have a tendency to lean towards more sweet dishes. I love to bake and always have my eye on new and delicious treats. Hence why Lauren’s blog caught my eye in the first place. As much as I love the process behind baking, I can’t say that I don’t love quick & easy recipes too.  I have been loving making different types of dessert dips for various occasions, some I have already made are cookie dough dip & cannoli dip. If you clicked on those links, you can see my photography has improved just a tad ;). I love them because even though I tend to go back for ninths and tenths, they aren’t as heavy as other desserts. Plus doesn’t dipping count as exercise?! This particular dip recipe is actually a family favorite and was shared to me by one of my dear friend’s moms. She labels it as apple dip, but I don’t doubt that many other things would be deemed dunk-worthy for it. It has a caramel flavor from the brown sugar, and a nice crunch from the toffee bits. Since now is the time people are apple picking, you can eat an apple for dessert every night with some of this dip. Or you can find other delicious things to dip in it, and let me know about it.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


Cream Cheese Toffee Dip or Apple Dip


  • 1 8 oz bar of cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. of vanilla
  • 1/2 package of heath bar bits (4 oz. a little more than a 1/2 cup)
  • Apple Slices for serving or anything else dunk-worthy

Cooking Directions

  1. Blend cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla until combined, then add 1/2 of the package of heath bar bits.
  2. Serve with granny smith or gala apples. You can add some pineapple or lemon juice to the apple slices to prevent them from turning brown.
