Cream Cheese Fruit Dip - single batch...
1 8oz. bar of cream cheese
1/4 c of crushed Heath bars
1-2 tsp Vanilla extract
1/4-1/2 cup of powdered sugar based on your taste
So, with it so iffy in spots... you really do need to do some taste test quality control along the way...lol
I did get real Heath bars... no knock off. Not sure how it would take with different kinds of candy. The crunch of the Heath really adds to the texture.
I wanna say that I used 14 bars... but, I did double my batch and there was a bit extra... so maybe just 6 or seven bars for a single and 12 or 13 for the double.
Best way I know to get something into that "crumbled" state.... my meat tenderizing hammer!
I had the candy in a baggy, then folded the towel over and went to town.
Taking a peak from time to time to see how it was going.
Ok... enough of this... taking way to long! Left it uncovered and really just went for it. Finished in a few seconds.
Must admit, I did eat a few of those larger pieces!
As you can see... it was a bit over the 1/2 cup for a doubled recipe. I tossed it all in anyway.
I get off brands of stuff... much cheaper and generally taste just as good. Memo to self, next time, remember set the cream cheese out to soften ... like 30 minutes early!
Also doubled up on this part... and then after a taste later, added just a bit more of the vanilla. Still couldn't taste it, but was good.
Yeppers... my cream cheese are like bricks. Took off jewelry, headed to sink, and scrubbed down like I was headed into do surgery.
I just didn't wanna chance tearing up my mixer with any of the larger chunks of the Heath bars. It was all mixed in just a few minutes.
The sad part ... this is all it made. Oh well... enough for everyone to do some apple dipping. It really is quite good. The most expensive part is that bag of Heath. Thinking that I may freeze the rest of the bars and do this again sometime soon.
Thanx for stopping in and have a Merry CHRISTmas!
