Recipe: Caramel Fruit Dip
Summary: Creamy sweet and a perfect foil for fresh seasonal sliced fruit and/or not-too-sweet plain cookies, this goes together quickly and can be made ahead.
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 8 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature (I prefer using Neufchatel 1/3 reduced fat cream cheese)
- Dippers: Fruit slices or plain cookies (not too sweet) such as shortbread or vanilla wafers
- Put sugar, vanilla and cream cheese in food processor, blender or electric mixer and blend until smooth. Serve as a dip with fruit slices in an array around it.
- Makes about 1 cup dip.
