J and I went to Dana and Patrick's for the South Carolina/Georgia game and dinner on Saturday. I was in charge of dessert and side dish, so I looked through my Pinterest Recipes and decided on Carmel Cheesecake Apple Dip.... (insert Borat's voice here) great success!Great dessert for tailgating or parties :) and super, super easy too.
Caramel Cheesecake Apple Dip
12 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature (I used and 8oz package since that's all I could find at the store)
3 Tbs. heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Caramel sauce (recipe below) or store bought
Heath milk chocolate pieces
mini chocolate chips (I used regular)
2-4 Granny Smith or other crisp tart apples, sliced and soaking in lemon juice/water until ready to serve (Soaked mine in Ginger Ale and Lime Juice, worked just as good)
Place softened cream cheese in a mixing bowl and beat on medium speed until smooth. Scrap down the sides of the bowl. Add the heavy cream and powdered sugar, mix well, until smooth. .Place the cream cheese mixture in serving dish smooth with the back of a spoon (If you dip the spoon into warm water before you start to smooth the cream cheese, it will be much easier to spread.) Spoon on a layer of caramel. Sprinkle with a layer of chocolate chips and the Health pieces. (I put the chocolate pieces and Heath Bar down first and then put the Carmel on top) How much you use is up to you but don't go to overboard or you may have trouble spreading the top layer of cream cheese. Place in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes.
