- Servings: 8-10
|2||Granny Smith Apples|
|2||Red Crisp Apples|
|8 oz||Honey Nut Cream Cheese Spread|
|1 tsp||Brandy Extract|
|2 Tbsp||Apple Brandy|
|1 cup||Chopped Salted Peanuts|
|1 cup||Orange Juice|
Combine cream cheese, honey, vanilla and most of the peanuts, saving a few for garnish. Cover dip and chill until serving time. Wash, core and slice apples, but do not peel. Use 2 resealable bags, one for the red apples, one for the green. Place 1/2 cup orange juice in each bag, then shake to coat the apples well. Drain apples well on a wire rack. Put the dip in a pretty glass bowl, arrange the apples around the dip, alternating red and green slices.
This is unexpected treat for the holidays, when so many things are so heavy including the appetizers. The colors are Christmas and it's so crisp and crunchy, a lighter refreshing fruit with a nice light dip.
