Reviews for Apple Brickle Dip
"LOVE this dip but I can't give it 5 stars because it is SO very hard to find brickle where I live. It is great with toffee bits too but it is amazing with brickle."
"can't save this in my recipe box:("
"To lighten the mix you might try using whipped cream cheese opposed to a block of cream cheese."
"I've done this with splenda blend. It still tasted great, and there was less sugar."
"Was delicious, but added additional cream cheese and some greek yogurt to make it more spreadable."
"My mom first gave me this recipe about 12 years ago. I have made it countless times, and every single time, I get asked for the recipe. Yes--it's a lot of sugar. But it's fabulous. Modify if you must, but it's terrific just as written. Don't eat the whole bowl and you'll be fine. :)"
"SWEET PERFECTION! It was a little rich for me, but I tell ya..... when the apple slices ran out people were eating it with SPOONS...lololol Next time I make it (it will be a regular item at our gatherings from now on) I might try adding a little Cool Whip just to lighten it up a bit. I'll also use low fat or fat free cream cheese next time. I don't think you would be able to tell the difference in taste! It just couldn't be any easier to make. PEOPLE WENT NUTS FOR IT!"
"This is way, way too sweet to serve with sweet, juicy apples . It tastes good otherwise. I would reduce sugar by half. I ended up using it as a spread on English muffins and French toast. It was delicious that way---just sweet enough for that"
"Made this over the weekend for a small party. It is delicious!! The bowl was empty at the end. I chopped up Heath bars and put in it. Served with apple slices and honey graham sticks."
"Made it as directed and it was a hit at our family cookout!"
"I make this every Fall to go with the apples I pick! I don't add the brickle/toffee bits. It is DELICIOUS!!!"
"Great night time snack!"
"I made this yesterday for a Superbowl party and it was a bigger hit than the Superbowl. At one point my son-in-law was eating it out of a spoon with no apples. I didn't vary from the recipe at all and had no complaints. I am adding this one to the keeper pile."
"Quick, easy, delicious ...a-w-e-s-o-m-e! Most certainly a fan favorite. (Gently toss the apples with pineapple juice, so they won't brown. Try this dip with bananas too!)"
"Very good, but I omitted the white sugar and only used 1/4 c. Toffee bits."
"I doubled this recipe for a group. Used only one 8 oz. package of Toffee Bits which was just fine. Next time I make it, I'll try omitting the white sugar. A keeper!"
"My sister-in-law serves this during the holidays. It is delicious."
"This is a fabulous recipe and a family favorite!!!! The Carol Jacksons of the world need to settle down and remember the whole idea of rating a recipe is to TRY it first, not to editorialize it without making it. Reviews like hers are more about attitude than appetite."
"I can't believe the amount of sugar in this recipe - 3/4 cup to 8 oz cream cheese, then also the bag of toffee bits. That's more sugar than cheese! I would never make it as it currently is written for this reason alone, I don;t care how good it might be."
"I doubled this recipe for a large party. When it came to adding the toffee, I only used ONE 8oz bag of Heath English toffee bits and it was more than enough. Used with Granny Smiths - Awesome!"
"Kids loved this when I made it at the beach house as a snack."
"This is fantastic!"
"This is definitely a favorite. It is SO good. I leave out the white sugar. And, it is not necessary to use the whole bag of chips. The chips blend into the cream cheese mixture in time."
"Wow! I am definitely adding this recipe into my rotation. I am new to making dishes and I have to say this dip was so easy to make! It is Extremely quick! I packed a little in my husband's lunch with some sliced apples, and he said that it looks delicious! I will definitely use this dip for get togethers! It is the perfect recipe for the holidays. I found that it was easier to mix all of the ingredients (excluding the toffee and apples) in a blender (I used my magic bullet) to soften the cream cheese. I also used whipped cream cheese. Then after the mixture was blended well, I added the toffee and a dash of ground cinnamon. Great great recipe!"
"It's a winner"
"This dip is fairly sweet. But the apples compliment it very well. Definitely added to my permanent recipe's."
"wow, I served this on Christmas Eve --- wow! Everyone loved it. I had a buffet lunch which included xmas cookies/candies and apples/dip. My guests bypassed the cookies/candies and went crazy for the apples and dip. Keeping this recipe and will make often."
"had this last year at my daughters fall party for school. Amazingly devilishly yummy! We have added mini chocolate chips to this a couple of times and oh yeah it was even better!"
"AWESOME!! Made this a few times,,everytime people asked for recipe,,makin it again tomorrow for granddaughters B-Day party,YUM! I double it,,everything but white sugar,,leave that 1/4cup...load it with crushed heath bars..better to make day before,,,,."
"made this lastnight for company,,They raved about it,,i doubled recipe and only used the 1/4 sugar(whited) doubled the brown, thought it was sweet enough,served it after meal for a light dessert."
"Love this dip! One of our favorites. Great spread on a cinnamon bagel too!"
"Delicious! Good way to start the fall season with fresh apples."
"I've been making this for years - since I first received it in Taste of Home magazine. It's a fun recipe because people always love it and don't know what's in it!! I am always asked for the recipe.....this is one of my all time favs."
"The kids tore this up. My lil' son licked the bowl clean. They never like apples either but with this dip they were asking for more."
"This is a good recipe. Will have to try the chocolate toffee bits next time."
"I have made this recipe for several years and it is ALWAYS a big hit at parties! Sometimes I make it with chocolate covered toffee bits instead, which is just as yummy!"
"My friend gave me this recipe several years back and I made it several times then. After the paper it was printed on faded, I was sure glad to stumble on the recipe here!"
"This dip is fabulous! I did make a few changes. I used fat free cream cheese and cut my apples into wedges; not chunks. I will now have to keep toffee bits in my pantry as I will be making this often. Thank you for this delicious recipe!"
