Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip

Our Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip is simply another variation of the ubiquitous cream cheese fruit dip– perfect for a party because it’s so simple. That’s the trick when you have a party where you’re serving a lot of food; make easy, delicious food where a lot of it can be made ahead of time and then you can actually enjoy yourself! The brown sugar gives it a rich caramelly base, and the toffee bits bring a sweet, satisfying crunch to the equation, resulting in a mouth-watering dip that is almost impossible to stay out of!

Caramel Toffee Fruit Dip

Cream cheese — full fat or low fat both work well, and non-fat would be ok in a pinch!
Brown sugar — light or dark brown sugar yields equally tasty results.
Vanilla — start with the recommended 1  1/2 teaspoons, but feel free to add more to taste.
Toffee bits — find these on the baking aisle by the chocolate chips. The chocolate covered ones are especially yummy here!

You’ll also need

Assorted Fruit — I just buy a fruit tray at some place like Costco and a carton of strawberries if they’re on sale; you could also cut up some Granny Smith apples.

Bamboo Skewers — if you want to kebab your fruit.

Instructions

Allow cream cheese to reach room temperature. With an electric mixer, combine cream cheese, brown sugar, and vanilla. When ready to serve, stir in about 1/2 a bag of toffee bits. Serve with fruit (or not…that’s totally up to you…I just caught my husband finger-dipping.)

  1. If I prepared this caramel tofee dip before party I would have to remake it and remake it before all guests arrived since I would empty bowls of this dip one after another. I couldn't resist even a second.

  2. I made this dip this past weekend, for a summer get-together with friends, and it was a huge hit! And you're right, no fruit needed – my friends were ready with a spoon, and I have already had three requests for the recipe.

    I thought I had brown sugar, but didn't, so I substituted white sugar instead, and it still worked!

  3. I’ve used many variations of this dip for showers/church activities and called it an “apple bar”. Put out lots of kinds of apples and then the different dips.
    Here are some ideas for possible additions besides toffee pieces:
    cinnamon, nutmeg and pecans
    frozen raspberries
    peanut butter (i use less cream cheese in this instance)
    caramel (good by itself too)
    marshmallows

    Enjoy!

  4. I want to host a babyshower just so I have an excuse to make this! My husband’s birthday is in 3 weeks, and I think I’m going to try this out on him. Birthday party, baby shower, caramel craving…this looks worthy of any occasion!

  5. So I just did a baby shower last night and while it was good, I wish that I would have done this full menu! I’ll have to do this for the next shower I host! Even better, I’m just going to make it all for me!
