Here is that apple recipe I promised you! I first saw this caramel apple dip on Pinterest (if you have not heard of Pinterest, check it out!) and found a reason to make it pretty quickly. Sweetened cream cheese is layered with thick, gooey caramel dip and topped with crunchy toffee bits. Thick slices of apples are used for dipping, but really a spoon would work just as well.
I halved the recipe in the picture below, but if you are making it for a crowd, stick to the original, I promise it will get eaten!
Caramel Apple Dip
- 2 8-oz packages of cream cheese (regular or 1/3 less fat), softened to room temp
- ½ cup powdered sugar
- 1 16 oz carton caramel dip, such as Marzetti’s
- 1 cup toffee bits
- 4 large Granny Smith Apples, sliced thick
- lemon juice (if you are not serving immediately)
In a medium bowl, beat together cream cheese and powdered sugar until fluffy. Spread mixture evenly onto a platter. Spread caramel apple dip on top of the cream cheese layer. Sprinkle top generously with toffee bits. Serve with thick slices of Granny Smith apples. If you want to prep the apples ahead of time, dip the slices in a 50/50 mixture of lemon juice and water, then dry. This will prevent the apple from browning.Pin It
