Brickle Dip – Trust us… It’s Good!
It was a LONG time ago that I tried Apple Brickle Dip for the first time. I was attending a baby shower with my mom and sisters and saw a dip sitting amongst a bunch of apples. If I were to be quite honest, I was hesitant to try the dip because it looked a little more like tuna than a yummy fruit dip (true story)!
I asked what it was and the baby shower host told me. I thought I’d give it a try. I’m SO glad I did because the dip is absolutely heavenly!!! It has since become a very common and yummy treat my family makes for showers and get togethers.
This dip can be served with many things, but if you’re serving it with apples, here are some tips…
Keeping the apples from turning brown
Once an apple has been cut it exposes the damaged/cut cells to oxygen which then causes iron oxide to from. Basically, a cut apple = a browning apple.
Thankfully, there are many great tricks you can use to help keep your apples from browning while sitting on the serving tray.
- Use “Fresh Fruit”: This is an ascorbic acid/Vitamin C product that can be found in the canning section at the market. In my opinion, this works the best.
- Lemon juice or any juice containing citric acid. Simply brush or dip the fruit with the juice. Be aware that whatever flavor juice you use will affect the taste of the apple.
- Soak in ginger ale
- Cut the apples in water
- Use tart apples as they have a higher acidic level
- Use a very sharp knife. A sharp knife does less damage to the apple cells
Types of apples: You can use any type of apple for this dip. Some common tart apples include: Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Braeburn and McIntosh. Some sweet apples would be: Gala, Fuji, and Honeycrisp.
How to Make Brickle Dip + Serving Ideas
This dip is beyond easy to make!! Just beat the cream cheese, sugars and vanilla in a bowl. Then fold in the toffee bits. It’s that simple. 😉
Not just for apples: Though this is mainly an apple dip, you can certainly use other delicious items such as:
- Firmer fruits like melons, pineapples, berries
- Graham crackers
- Cookies: Vanilla wafers, Oreos, gingersnaps
Making Ahead + Storing
Make ahead of time: You can easily make this a few days ahead of time, just wait to add the Toffee topping. Keep the dip in an airtight container in the fridge. Allow it to soften for about 30 minutes before adding the topping and serving.
Leftovers can also be stored in the fridge. The dip can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days total.
My kids lick the bowl clean if we make this at home, and I have a feeling you’ll do the same thing!
