Cream Cheese and Toffee Fruit Dip

Cream Cheese and Toffee Fruit Dip
You will never guess who came to visit me this weekend.
The sunshine!
And can you believe the good old sunshine
brought along a little bit of 56 degree weather.
(Don’t go mocking me now…it’s been a long winter around here.
56 degrees feels like a heat wave…sort of.) 
It was a joyful occasion!
 Break out the trampoline springs and paint your toenails….
Spring is a comin’.
In my heart of hearts this Utah gal knows it’s going to snow again, but for today….
 I’m just going to let the sunshine soak right in.
I have a very easy, springy, sweet and luscious
 fruit dip recipe for you today.
This recipe has been floating around my neighborhood for sometime now. It just keeps getting passed around, and showing up at this party and that party. Then, just the other day I was reading through A Gooseberry Patch cookbook, and what do you know….there it was! 
This yummy fruit dip is a keeper, a lot of people think it.
Hope you will be one of them!
Cream Cheese and Toffee Fruit Dip
Time: 10 minutes
Yield: about 2 cups
Recipe from Heidi Sabey, Julie Thomson and 
The Gooseberry Patch
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 C brown sugar
1/4 C white sugar
1 t vanilla
dash salt
3/4 C toffee pieces
Here is what you are going to need.
(minus the dash of salt…..just imagine it being there, in all of it’s tiny granulated glory…)
You can find the toffee bits on the baking aisle. They are usually with the chocolate chips. 

1. Beat your cream cheese until nice and smooth. Add all other ingredients but the toffee. Beat until its nice and glossy looking. About 2 minutes should do you up just right.

2. Pour in your toffee bits. Mix just until combined. Serve with fresh fruit. Strawberries, bananas, apples, pineapple…are all great choices.

    Yumm! Here in Oklahoma Spring is kind of teasing us too…70 degrees one day, 34 degrees this morning. The sunny days make me want to plant, plant, plant…but somehow I know I'd better wait until April!! This dip sounds wonderful. I'm going to try it out today for a Spring Break treat! Thanks!

    I think I just heard the apples and strawberries, that are in my fridge, fighting over who gets to jump in first. 🙂

    btw…I know what you mean about the sunshine…it's made it way here today and I'm so going to enjoy it! It's suppose to be in the 40's here this week and I'm more than excited! I am totally going to break out the flip flops…who cares if there's still 8 inches of snow left in the yard! LOL

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE this dip….. but I've only ever stirred it up not used beaters…. I can see how that would be very much yummier (good english? eh? not me…. ;))

    glad you are enjoying your warmer weather!

    This dip made me popular at parties for the last 13 years of my married life!:) It also tastes yummy dipped with pretzels. I just wanted to add that the toffee chips are optional because I have issues with the feel of toffee crunching in my teeth, I leave that ingredient out and it is still FABULOUS! Loves!

    This stuff is OMG DELISH! I spread it on a large platter and swirl caramel on top. And then I top it with the Heath Bar pieces and serve with green apples.

    I just made this recipe for my family and it was an instant hit. We were tired of the marshmallow/cream cheese dip. Thanks for sharing!

    Here again! I just took your dip to a party tonight and everyone talked about how good it was and recommended to others they had to taste it.

    Others were at their tables trying to guess what was in it.

    Finally, someone asked who brought it so they could decide who had figured out what the ingredients were.

    Several had come pretty close, all were surprised at how easy it was to make. So, it was a real treat and quite a conversation piece to boot! LOL!

    Thank you, and love you,
