Caramel Apple Dip Recipe

Amanda Powell | A Cookie Named Desire

Caramel Apple Dip is a creamy, sweet dip that tastes just like caramel apples. This tasty treat is perfect for your fall holiday parties, or just when you are in the mood for caramel apple!

Fall is our favorite season where I am. We’ve been in fall mode for weeks already.

There is nothing better than apple picking and sweater weather for us. I am just glad we can finally go full force with our love of fall without too much judgement from the outside world!

I’ve been loving on dips a lot lately, and this caramel apple dip has been on my mind for some time now.

I was first inspired to make it after talking to someone about making a dip using apple cider.

If you didn’t know, I love cooking down apple cider to make them into flavor infusion syrups in other recipes like this apple cider caramel sauce.

We use caramel in this caramel apple dip, and you can definitely use the apple cider caramel sauce, but you can also use any other homemade or store-bought caramel sauce.

This dip is a great recipe to use up any leftover caramel you might have from another baking project!

I made my own apple cider, but any apple cider you want to use will work. It all depends on how much you want to put into making this caramel apple dip.

I am all about ease, so I wouldn’t make apple cider just to make this dip.

Please get creative with what you use to dip! Our favorites are graham crackers and pretzels, but you can also use apple slices too.

My kid loves dipping french fries in her caramel apple sauce, so really, try anything out and see how it goes!

I also love putting this dip into my milkshake and it tastes almost like a caramel apple cheesecake milkshake which is just beyond good.

This caramel apple dip will last in an airtight container for up to a week in the refrigerator. This dip does not freeze well, but you are welcome to try.
