This easy Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Spread is the perfect sweet touch to a tailgating menu or any gathering of friends.

Easy Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Spread

A good friend of mine recently told me all about this super easy Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Spread. She said she served it at a tailgating event and watched it be devoured right before her eyes. It is good. I mean really good. And it could not be simpler to make. Seriously, it’s so easy, it’s sort of like cheating.

Three ingredients, plus about three minutes is all it takes (if that long) to put this sweetened up cream cheese spread together. Of course you’ll need more time to cut up the apples or pears or whatever you want to serve it with. A spoon perhaps?

Begin with some cream cheese. Drizzle the top with caramel sauce (homemade or store bought will do). Then sprinkle it with a generous amount of toffee bits. That is about as simple as it gets. But don’t let the simpleness of this Easy Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Spread fool you. It’s sneaky satisfying. You’ll see. I promise.

The simplicity of this Caramel Apple Cream Cheese Spread makes it quite perfect for tailgating. Of course you don’t have to be in a parking lot to enjoy it. Serve this cream cheese spread inside of your home for your next get-together and watch everyone cheer, even if there isn’t a football game on!

P.S. You can certainly use store-bought caramel sauce, but if you have some extra time, this Salted Caramel Sauce recipe is my favorite and such a great addition for so many other treats or maybe warm beverages, like hot chocolate or coffee!
