You know the Boy Scout saying, "Do A Good Turn Daily"?
Who knew that doing a good turn would result in a
delicious new recipe?
I was at the grocery store the other day when I saw my
elderly neighbor Madelyn. I stopped to chat and
she was frustrated because she couldn't find
any Heath Toffee Bits. She also commented on
how important it was to get these for a group
that was coming over and that she had come all
the way out in the terrible snowy weather.
She had looked in the baking aisle and had
asked a clerk and they said to check the candy aisle.
After chatting and wishing her luck with finding
the Toffee bits, I walked away. Then the thought
came to me to go and check the baking aisle for her.
I try to act on those moments of inspiration and
I headed off to the baking aisle rather than
to the checkout stand. Sure enough, there they
were tucked away on the side, easy to miss.
I grabbed a bag for her and one for me. I wanted
the recipe to this dip that would include Heath Toffee Bits.
I caught up with Madelyn and she was thrilled. Now she didn't
have to try another store. She quickly got the recipe off
her smart phone that her daughter had send her.
Caramel Toffee Dip
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
5/8 C. Heath Toffee Bits (the recipe called
for half a bag so I measure the bag and it was 1 1/4 C.)
Place the cream cheese, sugars and vanilla in mixing bowl
and mix until creamy. Mix in the Heath Toffee Bits.
Place in a smaller bowl and cover and refrigerate for
several hours or overnight for the flavors to blend.
Serve with fresh fruit and cookies.
It is so delicious - creamy and caramelly and filled with
soft crunchy bits.
I served mine with bananas, Gala apples, fresh raspberries (I would
have used strawberries but I had the raspberries, and Chessman cookies.
It is delicious all by itself. I liked the Chessman cookies best
and then the bananas. My daughter liked the apples best and
hubby loved it all, but we all agreed it was great straight from
Super easy and quick and super delicious.
