Buffalo Chicken Dip and Caramel Filled Apples

Buffalo Chicken Dip
1 (10 ounce) can chunk chicken, drained (I use one 12 oz can from Costco)
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup Ranch dressing
1/2 cup Buffalo wing sauce (such as Frank's Red Hot, not to be confused with their pepper sauce. Start with less if you want and add more to your desired hotness.)
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
blue cheese crumbles (optional)

Heat chicken and Buffalo sauce in a skillet over medium heat, until heated through. Make sure to break up the chicken so there are no big chunks. Stir in cream cheese and ranch dressing. Cook, stirring until well blended and warm. Mix in shredded cheese.  Pour into a shallow dish or pie pan and sprinkle with blue cheese crumbles and microwave it until the cheese melts. We usually only sprinkle blue cheese on half of it for those who aren’t blue cheese fans. Serve with chips for dipping.

Fall Snack: Caramel Filled Apples

Cut the top of your apple off and set aside. Scoop out the body of the apple with a melon baller and fill with melted caramel or dipping sauce of your choice. (Make sure to melt your dipping sauce in a bowl and NOT the actual apple)

TIP: Dab lemon juice on the rim of the apple as well as the "lid" of the apple so it doesn't turn brown. AND if you celebrate Rosh Hashanah tomorrow you can fill the apple with honey!
