ok, I know that apples are amazing by themselves. There is so much variety in flavor that I believe there is an apple to please everyone. But occasionally we make a dip for our apples, usually it’s when we’re having a party or I make something lame for dinner and I need a quick dessert to make up for it.
The recipe I use has lots of brown sugar and Heath baking chips in it. While making it the other night (my boys had some friends over to play a board game, I didn’t make a lame dinner that night) I was thinking maybe we could use honey instead of brown sugar. But I didn’t want to experiment on these extra teenage boys.
So, the next day for lunch I decided to try my idea. The only one who knew there was no brown sugar was Benjamin and he swore to secrecy until everyone had tasted it. No one noticed.
Without further ado, here’s the recipe…
Amazing “kinda” Healthy Apple Dip
8oz cream cheese
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 to 1 tsp. molasses (depending on how much you like molasses)
2 Tbsp. raw honey
Cream all ingredients together and serve with sliced apples. You can add more or less of the vanilla, molasses and honey depending on your tastes. We all like the tart taste of cream cheese so we don’t had much sweetener.
