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!
- 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
- Set out cream cheese to room temperature to soften for about 30-60 minutes
- Mix in sugars and vanilla extract to cream cheese to get as smooth as possible.
- Add sour cream in increments to get right consistency.
- Add toffee chips and gently stir in.
- 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!

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!
