Introduction: Super Simple Toffee Apple Dip

A tasty dessert doesn’t have to be complicated. This Toffee Apple Dip is always a crowd pleaser and usually the first thing gone at a party. The best thing is, it only takes minutes to prepare.

You can make this dessert for potlucks, a workplace treat, or even to have as a weekday snack. It’s a great no-bake option that will look impressive and taste even better. I get asked for the recipe every time I make it!

Satisfying, perfectly sweet, and the right mix of texture are what I look for in a dessert. This one checks all the boxes. I hope you give it a try!

Step 1: Ingredients & Supplies

For this recipe you will need:

  • 6 apples, sliced (I use a mixture for colour and variety. Shown here are Granny Smith, Gala and Ambrosia)
  • 1 package (250g) of cream cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 package (200g) of Skor toffee bits, divided (See Step 2)
  • Medium mixing bowl
  • Electric hand mixer with beater attachments
  • Rubber spatula

Notes:

To soften the cream cheese, unwrap the cream cheese and place it on a microwave-safe plate. Use a knife to cut it into small sections. Place plate of cream cheese in microwave. Microwave on full power for 10-15 seconds.

If you are making this for a smaller group or for yourself, I recommend only cutting up the amount of apples you need at the time to keep the freshness.

Step 2: Mix

Place the softened cream cheese and brown sugar in a mixing bowl. Using an electric hand mixer, beat on medium speed until well combined – about 1 minute. The mixture should be smooth and fluffy.

Set aside 2-3 tablespoons of toffee bits. Add the remaining toffee bits (about 3/4 cup) into the cream cheese mixture and fold in, using a rubber spatula, until combined.

Step 3: Arrange

Transfer the mixture into a serving bowl. Sprinkle the reserved toffee bits on top. Place the bowl on a platter and arrange the apple slices around the bowl.

Step 4: Serve

Your Toffee Apple Dip is ready to delight! Time to get dipping!

Note:

The dessert is best served the day it was prepared but it can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 1-2 days (but I'm sure it will be eaten well before then!)

    What is Skor toffee bits? And brown sugar, is it cane sugar, muscovado sugar or demerara sugar? Sorry, I'm not from US so I don't know your goodies over there.

    The toffee bits are small pieces of crunchy toffee (Skor is a type of candy bar). If you can get your hands on some toffee, you could crush it up into pieces to put in this recipe. Toffee is similar to a crunchy version of caramel. As for the brown sugar, I'm not too familiar with all the types of sugar, but on the brown sugar package it says 'pure cane sugar'. From my understanding demerara sugar is a bit more grainy, so it might not be as smooth when blended with the cream cheese. Hope that helps and hope you are able to try the recipe!

    Thank you. Now I know what kind of sugar I need. Crunchy toffee is a little more tricky. But we have crunchy toffee bars covered with milk chocolate here so I'll remove the chocolate before using the toffee.

    Wow! Your Toffee Apple Dip was a HUGE HIT at a family gathering I went to and will now be a family favorite from here on out. Thank you so much for this yummy recipe!
    As far as other things to dip we all loved the apples thought of things like Graham Crackers or Vanilla Wafers.

    I don't think I've really had apples with anything but caramel but this sounds really tasty :)
