Caramel Apple Dip

The other night I settled in to watch a little college football. J had just finished homework and was jammin’ to some Colbie Caillat in her room.  Between a couple of offensive snaps, I jetted out to the garage to grab a soda.
There was a glitch in the door lock and I found myself locked out. I ran to the front door- locked!
I banged on the door, rang the doorbell over and over, but by this time, J was in the shower and my pleas for help went unheard.  I ran around back and tried both the back doors- Locked! And locked!
I quickly ran back to the front really wishing I had paused the game before retrieving my soda.
Unfortunately, the fortress was secured and I was literally on the outside looking in. With no other obvious choice, I cracked open my soda and commenced watching the game from outside on the front porch, looking in through the window.
J surfaced awhile later and the look on her face when she saw me peering through the window with a tipped up soda being slurped was priceless!
This apple dip goes together almost quick enough to whip some up in between snaps!

Caramel Apple Dip
4 oz. softened cream cheese (I use fat free if I intend to eat it all... Which I do...)
1/2 cup caramel dip or ice cream topping (I like Smuckers Salted Caramel)
8 oz. Cool Whip
Blend  together softened cream cheese and caramel sauce until smooth. Stir in Cool Whip.
Drizzle with more caramel sauce.
Chill and serve!

This is a quick way to serve up some crisp fall apples! But if you have to retrieve your apples from the garage fridge- pause the game!  ...just in case!!
