Cream Cheese Apple Dip

September 24, 2012 in Chilled Desserts - 3 Comments - 2 min read

I can’t believe it’s fall already!  Last Monday, we were having 90-degree weather, and now, it’s in the 70s.  I’m not complaining though; 70s-80s is my kind of weather.  All of my summer decorations are now gone, the garden is winding down, and soups all of a sudden sound really delicious.  Yeah, fall is definitely here.

Two of my favorite things about fall are now occurring: the changing of the colors and fog.  The first makes sense, I know.  The Northwest has some beautiful, vibrant reds and yellows when fall hits, and I love to watch it slowly descend from green to those vibrant hues.  The second seems a bit odd, but I look forward to it every September—fog.  There’s just something about it that I can’t describe, but with the crisp air in the morning, it just gets me going.  (We also live up on a hill, so when I enter the valley, I get to see it creeping around the fields and houses.  That could partly be why too.)

In honor of fall, I made some cream cheese dip.  They go really well with apples, but you could pair it with any fruit, really.  I also decided to give them to some of my neighbors, as a welcome-to-fall gift.  If you’d like to make them as fun gifts and treats for someone too, you’ll need to following: wide-mouth, small mason jars, cute cupcake wrappers, and ribbon.

The mixture calls for four ingredients, and once you blend it well in your mixer, divide it evenly into your jars.  (The recipe doubles really well.)  Sprinkle some Heath Bar tidbits on top, place the metal top over it, cover with the cupcake wrapper, and seal closed with the lid.  Tie some ribbon around it and you’re ready to go!  That simple.

I have to warn you though.  If you do make them for others, make sure you leave a little for yourself.  It’s that good! Enjoy! xoxo
