toffee apple dip

We are getting to the time of year when it's common to be asked to bring something. Here's one of my favorite 'bring-able' treats.Allow 8oz. cream cheese to soften. Then place in a bowl and stir. (If you want to use lower fat or no fat cream cheese you can, but you may have some lumps.) Add 1/2 cup packed brown sugar and 1/4 cup granulated sugar. Stir again. Add 1 teaspoon (or more!) of the best vanilla you can put your hands on. Stir again. Now the pièce de résistance...
Unless, for some strange reason, you don't like chocolate, make sure you get a package that looks like this one. Heath makes a product very similar to these Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits, but is without the chocolate. (I know, why bother at all, right?!?) Make sure your package is labeled 'Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits'...or it won't have the chocolate.
Now, open the bag and dump the WHOLE thing into your bowl. (The one with the sugars, vanilla and cream cheese already in it.) I say whole thing so that you are not tempted to try the toffee bits by themselves. (wink, wink) Stir again, and voilà is your toffee apple dip.

Serve with sliced apples or pretzel sticks, and you will be the hit of the party!
