Grocery Cart Challenge Recipe Swap

I've had a few emails asking if I'm ok since I kind of disappeared this week and didn't put up a "reuse it" post. All is well! I just started a nursing class this week that meets for five hours at a time so now it's time to reorganize my life a bit to fit everything in. In the meantime, I think I've cooked NOTHING this week. The kids have been fending for themselves, using my menu plan and inserting a few scrambled egg nights in. I did happen to pull out a recipe when I was digging through my pile this week. I know I've posted it before but I'm doing it again because it is THAT good. It's a great way to get tons of fruit into my kids without any prodding from me.

So here it is...

Caramel Apple Toffee Dip
(at Christmas I serve this on a tray with red and green apples)

3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
8 oz cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup toffee pieces (skor or heath)
1 cup pineapple juice
12 apples cored and cut into wedges

Mix first four ingredients until smooth. Stir in toffee bits. Chill. Combine juice and apples in a bowl and toss to coat. This keeps the apples from turning brown on the tray. Drain apples and serve with dip.

Do you have a recipe you'd like to share? Please link directly to your post, not your homepage and please include a link back here to the Grocery Cart Challenge.

Have a great weekend!!!

Granny Smith Apples... always a hit, with or without dip. Good luck on your classes!
