2 8oz packages of cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar (or more to taste)
2 1/2 TBS vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Mix the softened cream cheese in your mixer for about 2 minutes on medium speed, you what to really whip it up. Add in the brown sugar, vanilla and cinnamon and continue mixing until fully incorporated.

Place in a crock or two small souffle dishes and serve.

Serve with apple slices, strawberries, grapes and pretzels. The salt and the sweet go so good together!!

Optional: top with some additional brown sugar, OR for some crunch make up a bit of toffee and crumble - place half in a middle layer and the rest on top...YUM!

To make toffee melt 1 stick of butter and 1/2 cup white sugar in a saucepan, add in a dash or two of salt - keep stirring until it comes to a full boil, keep it going a few minutes more (about 280 if you have a candy thermometer), stir vigorously.

Pour onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet or cake pan. Cool in the fridge, peel the paper off break apart and sprinkle (and nibble) and sprinkle some more!
