This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Shamrock Farms. The opinions and text are all mine.

When thinking about an appetizer to serve to guests that’s a little more out of the box – on the sweet side boy do I have a recipe for you! My girlfriend Michelle shared this toffee chip fruit dip recipe with me and it is just delightful!

I usually eat apples when I can dip them in something like peanut butter, and this toffee dip is going to be a hit. After I made this Benjamin and I ate so much of it, it was almost our dinner! Put this easy recipe (because I only do easy) on your menu for all your holiday parties – your guests are going to love it!

Such few ingredients, you know me – easy peasy!

Ingredients

  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup Shamrock Farms sour cream, more to thin if needed
  • 1/4 to 1/3 cup toffee chips, crunch them into small bits
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4-6 sliced apples
  • Lemon juice to put on apples so they don’t brown

Directions

  1. Set out cream cheese to room temperature to soften for about 30-60 minutes
  2. Mix in sugars and vanilla extract to cream cheese to get as smooth as possible.
  3. Add sour cream in increments to get right consistency.
  4. Add toffee chips and gently stir in.
  5. Slice apples, and serve with dip. Use lemon juice on them so they don’t brown

I love Shamrock Farms sour cream, they use pure, wholesome milk with no added growth hormones like rBST and it’s s creamy! It’s smooth and also perfect for any topping or high-quality recipe ingredient. We always have sour cream in the fridge, it’s a staple around here.

I also love their heavy cream and use it for my cold brew! Being in Arizona I also like to support our local dairy farmers – like one of the farm belonging to my best friend’s family.

If you live in the Phoenix area, Shamrock Farms is having a farm tour with Santa, snow, craft and 15 tons of SNOW! It’s from December 1-3, lot of fun activities for the family, face painting, balloon artist, crafts, and photo ops with Santa. Reserve your spot and buy a ticket or call 602-477-2462 – you must pre-pay ahead of time to secure your ticket.

Back to the recipe, slice those apples – I love my handy tool here from the grocery, it core and slices, so genius. Serve up a variety of apples for those who like red, fuji or green!

You could line up all the apples on a tray and serve with the bowl, don’t forget the lemon juice to keep them from browning but I bet they will hardly have any time to brown as everyone grabs their slice for a sweet bite!

Happy entertaining!
