I saw this idea all over the web, even the local news â€“ an apple and caramel cheese ball coated with pecans
... It's SOOOO good!! I chose to use some Dulce du Leche
for my sweet sauce â€“ awesome!
In fact, Mom enjoyed it so much on Thanksgiving that she asked me to make it again for Christmas. Haha!! I'd realized that, and had already made another batch! Done.
For the savory, I'd made this Roasted Cauliflower
recipe for the potluck at work, and my... it was good as a side, but in my mind it tasted like a supreme dip! Ok... spread...
It has an interesting tomato based sauce, and instead of goat cheese I had â€œcheaped outâ€ and used cream cheese â€“ but dang, it worked!!! For the Thanksgiving app I used two 8 ounce blocks of cream cheese, doubled up on the the spices, and added an extra splash of tomato sauce. Hearty crackers (Triscuits) were perfect.
I've been having some computer issues, and not nearly enough time available to fix - so please forgive me if I post this without any pics and add them as I can get them ready - but I didn't want you to miss out <3
