What Is Toffee Apple Dip?

Years ago I belonged to an amazing group of women who loved to craft. On one of these evenings one of my friends, Trisha, shared this delicious toffee apple dip. We all ate and ate and ate this stuff until it was gone! This dip is sweet – made with cream cheese and brown sugar, and combined with toffee bits.  It is literally candy for your fruit!

The recipe has three ingredients, so anyone can do it.  And I promise that everyone will love it!
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 heath bars, crumbled
Ingredients needed for toffee apple dip.

How To Make Toffee Apple Dip

1. Start by crumbling your Heath or Toffee bar.  I like to do this by putting them in a zipper bag and rolling a rolling pin over them.

2. Add brown sugar and cream cheese to a large mixing bowl.

Pro Tip: Leave your cream cheese on the counter overnight to ensure it is soft enough for mixing.

3. Mix with a hand or stand mixer until well combine and smooth.

4. Add in Heath pieces.

5. Stir to combine.

6. Slice apples and serve.

To Keep Your Apples From Turning Brown

I like to serve this with sliced apples.  I have a tip for keeping those apples from turning brown.  After slicing – place in a gallon size ziplock bag.  Juice one lemon or lime into the bag and give it a shake.  The citrus will keep the apples nice and fresh for your serving platter. Some may say that you don’t even need an apple with this dip – just wipe the bowl clean with your fingers, ha ha!  To each their own!

Toffee Apple Dip Q&A

How to you prevent apples from turning brown?
Toss your apple slices in lemon or lime juice.  You can also toss them in a salt water solution.  Both of these methods work for preventing apple slices from turning brown.
Why do packaged apples not turn brown?
Packaged apples found already sliced in your local produce section are usually treated with a solution of calcium ascorbate or citric acid to maintain freshness and color. Both are very safe to use on fruit that will be consumed. This is the same method as tossing with lemon or lime juice.

How long does the dip and apples last?

The dip will last 10 days in an airtight container in the fridge.

Apple slices last 4-5 days in an airtight container in the fridge if they’ve been treated with citrus juice.
Can I use toffee bit rather than crumbling a toffee bar?
I have tried this and you just don’t get the same delicious texture and taste as using an actual candy bar.  So I recommend going with the crumble method.
What kind of apples should I use?
I like a mix of green and red apples for this dip.  It is also delicious with sliced pears, graham crackers, and ginger snaps.

Halloween Styling

This dip is decadent.  It is truly the candy for your apple.  With a candy bar as one of the ingredients you can’t argue with that!  And who would want to?  Toffee apple dip is truly delicious.  As a tradition I make this dip every Halloween for an adult costume party we host. There is never a speck left. Here is how I style it for Halloween, although this dip is delicious year-round.
