Caramel. Apple. Toffee. Cream Cheese. Marshmallow fluff. Put it all together and what do you get? DIP! DIP! DIP!
So, this is my first post in a football-food inspired series. You see, I got to thinking about how I don’t really love watching football (shhh… don’t tell the others), but I really love football food. And then I thought, what would make football food better? Desserts, duh! So, I made this crazy good, crazy easy dip. Then I brought it around to some friends in case they needed to have a sweet treats football food addiction too. They really liked it, and I think you will too! It’s super quick and easy, and is good for tailagtes an potlucks alike! My favorite part? The sweet/salty, creamy/crunchy combinations that you get from adding toffee bits.
Let me know what you think. Do you have any sweet football food inspired desserts you would like to see? (Think: dessert nachos, chocolate chili, boozy milksahkes!)Leave it in the comments, and I will do my best to make something just for you!
Caramel Apple Dip

In a food processer, puree apple pie filling until it begins to look ground. Add caramel sauce and puree until smooth. In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, combine caramel apple mixture, marshmallow fluff and cream cheese. Beat until well combined and smooth. Fold in toffee bits. Serve with fruit, graham crackers (cinnamon grahms taste amazing with this dip!), or dippers of your choice.
The dog days of summer are upon us, so I thought I should share this recipe with you before summer is completely over and our brains can only comprehend pumpkin and apples and cinnamon (oh my!). I whipped up this … Continue reading
In our house we have a situation. I wouldn’t call it a “problem,” but it is definitely a situation. We have 5 different devices whose sole purpose is blending: two food processors, a blender, a Vita Mix, and an immersion … Continue reading
