Keep your dip creamy and smooth by making sure your cream cheese is at room temperature so that you don’t have any lumps in your dip. If you can’t find salted caramel sauce, regular caramel sauce or caramel dip would also work great for this recipe.
Top your caramel tip with toffee bits or substitute them with butterscotch chips or peanut butter chips, or even a little bit of both. You can also substitute regular or mini chocolate chips for the white baking chips.
