Toffee Apple French Toast Bake

Ok, so this doesn't fall under the particularly healthy category, but it is ever so yummy!

8 cups cubed French bread
2 medium tart apples
1 pkg. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1-3/4 cups milk, divided
2 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
1/2 cup English toffee bits, almond brickle chips, or caramel chips
5 eggs

Directions: Place half of the bread cubes in a greased 13x9x2 baking dish; top with apples. In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugars, 1/4 cup milk and 1 tsp. vanilla until smooth; stir in toffee bits. Spread over apples. Top with remaining bread cubes. In another bowl, beat the eggs and remaining milk and vanilla; pour over bread. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Remove from refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 35-45 minutes until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean.
