Caramel Apple Dip

I had my book club spread all planned out. A few old favorites, a few new recipes to try. Unfortunately, one of the "new" recipes just wasn't working. With  not a lot of time to spare and running low on energy, I turned to the Internet and spotted this delicious looking dip.

A snap to put together and perfect for fall, this sweet dip couldn't be better. It could easily be served  as a dessert or appetizer. Lightly sweetened cream cheese, topped with creamy caramel and crunchy toffee bits. Served with tart granny smith apples it's a winning combination. If you were serving this for  dessert it would also be fun to add graham crackers, pretzels, teddy grahams, etc.
