In a small pan over medium/low heat, melt the butter and add the onions, salt and pepper and sauté for 15 minutes, turn down the heat to simmer and add the garlic, apple cider and brown sugar and continue to sauté for another 15 minutes until all the moisture has been evaporated and the onions are nice and caramelized, set aside. While the onions are cooking place the Gorgonzola cheese, cream cheese and milk in a food processor and blend until smooth, add the onions and pulse a few times, stir in the chopped pecans. Place in a beautiful dip bowl and garnish with more chopped pecans and chopped chives.
