apple dip

One of my favorite things about my mom is that she speaks mainly in idioms.

When someone says something mean, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.”

When I’m waiting to hear about a job, “The squeaky wheel gets the oil!”

When we were complaining about cleaning the house for Thanksgiving, “Many hands make for light work!”

When Morgan gets herself into some dramatic encounter and takes no responsibility, “It takes two to tango.”

When I solve a crafty problem, “A Girl Scout is resourceful.”

…just to name a few. One that I always live by is “An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”

She won’t mind if it’s covered in caramel and chocolate.fa1edb34259d0651fd5d269721bcc2ee

Apple Dip

10-12 apples of your choice (I used Granny Smith)

1 brick softened cream cheese

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup caramel

handful of mini chocolate chips

handful of Heath bits

Mix the cream cheese and brown sugar and spread in the bottom of a dish.

Spread a thin layer of caramel over the top, then sprinkle the Heath bits and chocolate chips over that.

Enjoy!

This is super easy and a good thing to bring to holiday parties because you can make it ahead. If you can’t find the Heath bits (sometimes it’s tricky), you could use chopped nuts, peanut butter chips, shredded coconut, etc.

We really hit the nail on the head with this one.
