I have friends that we get together every couple of weeks to sit and eat and talk (and eat and eat and eat and drink).  It is quite a lot of fun. I am always wanting to come up with new ideas for food to bring plus as an added bonus, I can try out new recipes on them.  Some have gone over well while others have died a screaming scary death.  You know it's bad when your friend looks at you with such betrayal on their face. At other times you know it is a hit when the container is completely emptied out.  Luckily this is one such recipe.
There are two ways to make this.  You can use all store pre made items (caramel from the ice cream section and frozen whip cream) or you can make the items fresh.  I prefer the second way as I think it has a much better taste but that could just be the sweat and love added to it.

Recipe:


  • 1 8oz Cream Cheese

Whip cream Recipe
Beat 1 cup cream in a bowl until peaks form.  Place in refrigerator at least 1 hour prior to use. 


Caramel Recipe:
  • 6 TBSP Butter, melted
  • 4 TBSP Extra Thick Whipping Cream (this is a must)
  • 1/2 cup Corn Syrup light

Whisk completely, try to avoid getting it up the sides
Microwave for 1 minute

Microwave for 30 seconds, it will have bubbled up quite a bit so be careful when removing from microwave to whisk, place back in microwave
Watch carefully for the last 30 seconds
IT WILL BE SCORCHING HOT 
Let cool to room temperature


Allow cream cheese to come to room temperature.  
Beat until creamy 
Add the caramel (reserve about 2 tablespoons to drizzle on top) and beat until incorporated, you will need to keep scraping down the sides
