Apples w/ Creamy Caramel Dip~A Tribute to Daniel

This post is a special tribute to a fellow food blogger, Daniel Saraga, who was the author of the wonderful blog, The Haggis and The Herring.  Daniel  passed away recently and he will be missed  by many, including the Secret Recipe Club and the food blogging community. In his honor, I made this recipe from Daniels blog. This is definitely my type of autumn recipe with apples and caramel and pure yumminess! Thank you, Daniel!
Apples with Creamy Caramel Dip
1- 8oz Cream Cheese (softened)
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
2/3 cup crushed Heath Bars
Granny Smith Apples
Lemon Juice (for drizzle)
Caramel Sauce
25 squares Caramel
1/3 cup Whipping Cream

Blend soft cream cheese and brown sugar together.
Place mixture in a small dish or platter.
Make caramel sauce by combining the caramels 
and the whipping cream.
Mix together over low heat, until smooth. 
Sprinkle 1/2 of the Heath candy pieces over the 
cream cheese mixture.
Spread some of the caramel over the top 
of the Heath pieces.
 Sprinkle the remainder of the Heath bar pieces over 
the caramel, and then top the candy pieces with 
more caramel.
Cut your apple into small bite size pieces.
Sprinkle with the lemon to keep the apples
from turning brown.
Enjoy with family and friends!

I changed a few thing in Daniel's recipe. 
Check out his original recipe.

Read Daniel's wife's eulogy to her husband.
It is a touching and heart warming tribute.
