Toffee Crunch Dip

I HIGHLY recommend making a batch of this dip and indulging in toffee-crunchy-deliciousness. Be sure to share it with a bunch of people to spread the calories around.
I was introduced to this dip when my friend Julie brought it on a fruit platter to our kids’ soccer party. I helped myself to seconds and thirds. When I complimented Julie on the dip, her husband commented that you could "eat it with a spoon.” Julie said she first tasted it at a church activity. The woman who brought the dip also brought recipe cards because she knew everyone would want to know how to make it!

Ingredients:
-8 oz. cream cheese
-8 oz. package milk chocolate toffee bits
-½ c. sugar
-½ c. brown sugar
-1 tsp. vanilla

Directions:
Put everything in a bowl then stir with electric hand mixer.
Done!

Serve with fruit, pretzels, graham crackers…whatever you want!

(Apple slices and salty pretzels are my favorite.)

Julie’s recipe calls for Heath Bits o' Brickle, but when she sent her husband to the store he picked up Heath English Toffee Bits by mistake. I told Julie’s husband he was inspired, because I love this dip with milk chocolate toffee bits.
Julie says one time she tried to make the dip with Neufchatel cheese (lowfat cream cheese), and the consistency was “gluey”. So no cheating!
