I was going to take my favorite apple dip to work for a special occasion. It is so simple to make, that I waited until the last minute to put it together. Guess what? No brown sugar in the house! I can’t believe I let myself run out of something that is such an important staple in my kitchen.
Well, I started thinking about what I could use instead of brown sugar. Then I remembered I had some cream cheese frosting left over from the spice cupcakes I had made the day before. So, here’s what I did:
I creamed together 8 oz. cream cheese, 2 Tbsp. butter, and 1 tsp. vanilla. Then I added 1 cup of powdered sugar and beat the mixture until smooth. Then, I added the leftover cream cheese frosting. I put it in a bowl and surrounded it with slices of green apples, red apples, and pears.
Everyone loved it at work, and never guessed it was a re-use of cake frosting!
