I was really interested in that toffee dip for apples that some of you were discussing in previous threads. Anyway, I saved the recipe and bought all of the ingredients. My question is...it called for toffee bits such as "skor" which is a chocolate covered toffee bar if I'm not mistaken. The recipe didn't mention chocolate covered toffee so I was confused. Since "skor" was mentioned, I bought Heath bar bites and was planning on using that. Should I have bought the chocolate covered toffee??? Is that going to make the dip taste weird? Obviously I know that it will be adding more fat/calories.
Not sure about the recipe, as I have never made it, but you can buy the Skor bits - I have some in my pantry.
I used Heath Bar bites (no chocolate) - it was yummy. In fact I am still eating it - it really makes alot!
Well, since I found the chocolate covered toffee bits, I will be making the dip with that. Maybe next time I will look a little harder to find them without chocolate. How can you go wrong with chocolate anyway????
I don't think the recipe calls for the chocolate kind. I also used the Heath brand because they were cheaper. The dip turned out great!
Let us know how you like it.
I've made this recipe about a dozen times and it's one of my favorites so I can answer with authority.
Although the Skor candy bars have chocolate, the Skor bits in the recipe are little bits of toffee with no chocolate. In my store, I find them in the aisle with the chocolate chips. I'm not sure how the chocolate-covered toffee bits would do in this recipe (although I agree with your assessment that chocolate can't ruin much). Since those chocolate covered toffee bits are so yummy on their own, I'd save them for my next bout of PMS and go to the store to get a bag of the toffee bits.
Whatever you decide to do, good luck!
This same recipe is in one of the Colorado Junior League cookbooks, without any toffee chips at all and it is delicious!
Well, the day I made the dip, I went to the store and found the actual Heath toffee bits. Yes, I have saved the chocolate covered ones and between my DH and myself, they will be gone in a couple of days. As far as the dip goes.....YUMMY!!!!!! We have decided that we like the dip better with Rome apples or red delicious because the granny smith were just way too tart. We almost couldn't enjoy the dip because of the tartness of the apples. Anyway, it was great and we are still eating off of it and I made it 4 days ago. Thanks for everyones help
I'm going to ask the same question. I want to make this and all my store had was the choc. covered toffee. Has anyone made it this way? Should I melt them first? I know the toffee is suppose to soften. I'm wondering if it's going to look like choc. balls floating around in the dip.
Luckily I figured out what toffee bits I should use before I made the dip. It is definitely not the chocolate covered bits. Since I had already bought them before getting all of the facts straight, I just simply made the chocolate bits into a neat little snack
You can find the toffee bits that this recipe calls for grouped with the chocolate chips in the grocery store. I bought Heath bar bits.(They may have said almond toffee bits????) Someone had mentioned the Skor bits so I guess it's just whatever your grocery store decides to sell.
Tiger, I find the Skor toffee bits in the same section of the supermarket as chocolate chips. They definitely do not have chocolate on them.
I do hope you find them. It's such a delicious recipe. Also, if you serve it with red & green apples, it's a festive appetizer for the holidays.
Hate to be the only dissenting vote here--but perhaps there are others out there, afraid to post?
I made this and thought it was VILE. I guess I must be the only one that thinks toffee + apples = GROSS. I wanted to like it--but in a world already graced with caramel, I just don't see the place where this fits.......
Don't throw toffee apples at me! LOL
I'll just post for posterity...
I made this dip with crushed Heath bars (read: with chocolate coating) and it is wonderful... No worries about the chocolate covered toffee--yum! I'm sure it is great either way.
Kristi, so sorry you didn't enjoy the dip
Please don't be afraid to dissent. I doubt a recipe exists that everyone loves.
Awhile back, I remember reading rave reviews of something called "Lemon Buttercrunch Cheesecake bars" (or something like that). Well, I tried them with high hopes and thought they were vile. I posted a question asking whether I did something wrong or was it only me who found the recipe to be nasty. I received several replies that others didn't like the recipe either. Needless to say, I wished they had posted their experiences before I made a pan of them!
Anyway, I always appreciate the dissenters, especially when they have suggestions for improving the recipe. It's even ok when they disagree with my opinion -- more Skor toffee bits for the rest of us .

You can have mine <grin>.
I didn't have time to seach for the toffee so I just used the choc. covered health balls. As I predicted it looked like light brown dip with choc. balls in it. Although I have to say everyone really likes it. If I make it again and can't find the plain toffee I'd at least chop up the choc. covered toffee so it would blend better!
