Dips. Appetizers. Finger foods.

They're my Waterloo. Heaven help me when sweets or breads come in these nifty little portions. Feta dip is my nemesis. This chocolate chip cookie dough dip knocks my socks off. I was utterly surprised to sort through all my test kitchens and realize that I hadn't posted that one yet. It is seriously one of my go to desserts treats. Do yourself a favor and check it out. Or maybe do yourself a favor and don't...with melted butter and brown sugar it's rather dangerous.

But tonight I may have just ruined apples for myself. Normally I'm not a fruit dip person but when I came across this recipe it sounded good and the creator, Karly from Buns In My Oven,  mentioned it was good with nilla wafers or fruit.

I tried it with both wafers and fruit, (don't judge me...it's Mother's Day) but the clear winner for me was the apple with the dip combo. Something about the way the toffee bits and peanut butter mixes with the apple to form a love triangle of epic proportions.

What you'll need:
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
milk, as needed for consistency 
1/2 cup toffee bits
1/4 mini chocolate chips

What you'll do:
Beat cream cheese and peanut butter until combined. 
Stir in powdered sugar and vanilla. 
Add milk if necessary to thin to desired consistency.
Add in toffee bits and chocolate chip pieces.

We enjoyed it with nilla wafers but like I said the combination of flavors with the apples wins hands down for me. Even my son, who is quite skeptical at trying new foods, went from suspicion to "I am craving the dip" after one bite.
