Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip: Halloween Edition

Can you guys believe our Halloween party is almost over?? We’ve had so much fun this week and hope you have, too–we’ve really loved hearing all of your feedback and fun ideas! The good thing is that both Sara and I feel like Halloween kind of kicks off the holiday season, so we have lots more fun like this coming your way in the next few months!

This is a fall twist of one of our earliest recipes, from our very first theme week. Back when our blog was, like, 6 weeks old, Sara went and had a baby, so I threw her a baby shower, complete with all sorts of goodies you could serve at a girly kind of party. All of the recipes are pretty fabulous, if I do say so myself, but every single time I serve the Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip at a party, I catch someone forgoing the fruit altogether and doing a little lot of finger dipping and even the occasional bowl-licking. It’s so good and so super easy that Sara had the great idea of doing a Halloween twist!

Check out the recipe card below for the full recipe!

Prepare cinnamon chips according to these directions, only cut with Halloween-shaped cookie cutters.


Meanwhile, combine cream cheese, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla with an electric mixer. When ready to serve, stir in about 1/2 a bag of toffee bits with more sprinkled on top. Serve in a hollow pumpkin with the spooky cinnamon chips and fresh fruit.



Again, we hope you’ve had as much fun as we have this week! If you’re just stopping by now, don’t forget to check our the shrunken heads here, and scope out all the fun party food here!

  1. oh my who are you and how wonderful is this website.
    i am running late to a baby shower i am throwing and am making myself even more late by drooling over this site!!!

    i will be back!

  2. I am going to do this for our Thanksgiving this week. (Canadian). It looks so yummy and the presentation looks great!! Thanks for all the wonderful recipes and ideas

  3. That sounds like my kind of fruit dip! I'm not really into the fluffy, cool whippy fruit dips, but this looks delish! I love the toffee bits idea 🙂

  4. Your blog is the death of my diet. And I am loving every minute of it. I made your caramel popcorn TWICE this week. Keep up the great work!

  5. That tip is so tasty I've never made it. A friend frequently makes a similar one. Then I have to wait and have others in the room watching, so I can't lick the bowl or dip my finger in it! =)

  6. I was just introduced to your blog by my daughter, and I am TOTALLY HOOKED!! You guys are AMAZING, and I have spent hours going through your posts. It just makes me happy!! Now I wish I had time to do everything I found. Thanks for all of your hard work!!

  7. That's such a fun idea to use cookie cutters for the cinnamon chips. And my mouth is watering just thinking of this dip!

  8. Great way to kick this up a notch!! Those cinnamon chips are so fun with the pumpkin 🙂

    Do you know if this would work with cream cheese that has been frozen? I bought a bunch on sale and mistakenly put it in the freezer thinking it would be okay, well it's not. It completely changed the structure, so I'm having a hard time finding things I can use it for that still work in the final product. Thanks!
