Caramel Apple Dip

My kids LOVE their apple slices, as do me and my husband. We find ourselves sitting down to this fruit at snack time more often than not. I was browsing my grandmas cookbook the other day and stumbled upon this recipe for Caramel Apple Dip. I decided to put the recipe  to the test and it turned out absolutely fantastic. My husband raved about how yummy it was. But who wouldn’t love a little sugar and caramel smeared on their apple?! I am not complaining one bit  :)

Note: I usually double this recipe if more people than my family are eating it. It disappears so quick! It is definitely a crowd favorite.

    OMG! I made this tonight and it is so delish!!!! However, I have to cut me and my family off. We CAN’T eat it all in one night! Will this hold overnight in the fridge, or is this a one night only dip?

    Just out of curiosity, do you use hard or soft caramels?

      Chef in Training says:

      I have always used either the individually wrapped kraft caramels (unwrapped of course) or the kraft caramel bits and made caramel to each packages directions.

    You can also use low fat cream cheese

    Made this today and it was the hit of the party! I used lite cream cheese with no problems! I served it as room temp and it stayed nice and soft, unlike packaged caramel dip.
