We had a belated boss's day potluck at work today, and I was slated to bring my mac and cheese but then I went and burned my hand on a cookie sheet. (See yesterday's post.) So I had to regroup and think of something that wasn't labor intensive.
A few months ago, my mom got a big group of women together to go to a local place called Dinner with TLC. They provide all of the kitchen equipment, ingredients, and recipes for you to put together your own meals. All you do is put it together (or have them do it) and take it home and reheat! It's awesome and the menus change every month. Anyways, the owner had out this fruit dip and assorted fruits, along with various other appetizers.
Those who know me well would be shocked to know that I actually ate a fruit dip. I'm not a dip-person. Never have been. But oh.my.God this dip was amazing.
I would have taken a better picture of it last night, but I just never got around to it. Also, a big thank you to my fabulous coworker, Rhonda, for arranging the fruit for me! You should make it for yourself and see for yourself how lovely it is!
8 oz. block of cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 bag toffee pieces (not the chocolate covered toffee pieces)
Beat cream cheese, sugars, and vanilla in a bowl. Mix in the toffee. Serve with fruit.
