This caramel-chocolate dip with buttery biscuit dippers is delicious! You can use refrigerated croissants instead of biscuits for a flakier texture. —Betsy Tankersley, Flat Rock, North Carolina


  • 3 tablespoons melted butter, divided
  • 1 tube (16.3 ounces) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat bottom and side of a 10-in. cast-iron or other ovenproof skillet with 1 tablespoon butter. Cut each biscuit in half; roll each piece into a ball. Place along outer edge of prepared skillet, leaving center open. Brush biscuit balls with remaining 2 tablespoons butter.
  2. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and caramel topping until blended. Pour into center of skillet; sprinkle with chocolate chips. Bake until biscuits are browned and chocolate is softened, 25-30 minutes. If desired, stir cream cheese mixture until combined. Sprinkle with confectioners' sugar; serve warm.
