Caramel Apple Dip
Creamy caramel apple dip made with cream cheese, caramel sauce, marshmallow cream mixed together and topped with praline bits and chopped nuts then paired with sliced apples.
It’s that time of year again when I most look forward to cooler weather and autumn food that I’ve been waiting ALL YEAR for! I’m talking about real apple cheesecake, pumpkin spice lattes, sweet potato pie, everything slow cooked, walnut crusted roasts, casseroles, soups, cranberry and white chocolate cookies, fig salads and so much more. With all these delicious seasonal favorites, it’s no wonder that everyone looks forward to this time of year and it’s a constant favorite. To me, autumn is all about the transition of summer into fall. Therefore, I like to dust of my pie and casserole dishes.
Caramel Apple Dip is one of my favorites. It’s a lot easier than getting the family together to dip apples in caramel and chocolate. This recipe is incredibly simple to make and can feed a crowd. It can be prepared in advance and lasts for several days. Although, September is a great time to use the oven again, this dessert is a no-bake recipe and takes a few minutes to make.
Most dessert dips are versatile enough and can be served with graham crackers, assorted fruit, pretzels, molasses cookies, ginger snaps, marshmallows, cookies and biscuits. This dip is great with all the above and preferred with apples, strawberries, graham crackers and cookies.
Ah, I must note that this sweet dip tastes good on french toast bagels, cinnamon sugar donuts and muffins.
To make this recipe, cream the cream cheese in a stand mixer fit with attachment. Add the brown sugar, caramel sauce and marshmallow cream to bowl and continue to beat. Add cinnamon to mixture and mix until combined. Wash and slice apples then toss with a little water and lemon juice so they don’t spoil fast. Serve on a tray with apple dip.
