Spiced Caramel Apple Dip Recipe

Caramel apple dip is another must have recipe around my house. It’s perfect for a quick dip to take to a potluck, snacking during the big game, and to have when friends drop by for a visit. And during the cooler months of fall and winter, it tastes even better with spices – like a bite of apple pie.

You’ve just got to try it. I promise, you’ll thank me.

Delicious recipe for spiced caramel apple dip perfect to serve with sliced apples.
Serves: 12
  • 8-ounce package cream cheese
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice

And yes, you can go ahead and slice your apples ahead of time, too. In a medium bowl, pour in a can of ginger ale, Sprite, or 7-Up, or even pineapple juice. As you slice your apples, simply place them in the bowl and then cover and refrigerate. Right before the party, remove slices from the liquid and serve.

    What a great dip for all the yummy apples we are picking!

    Great dip to go with crisp and crunchy apples!

    Great looking dip-perfect with the apple, and salty pita chips could be good too. My kids would be all over this :)

    I totally thought it would be something you’d have to cook but how cool (and easy) is that? Trying this one soon.

  6. 7

    Sound delish! A much healthier option to dip and chips at any party or while watching a football game. Great idea!

    I will try it with confectioners sugar instead of the white granulated sugar…creamier and no possibility of crunch!

    After reading your Cookie Dough Dip Recipe and falling in love with this I had to follow your link to this recipe. And this is stunning. As I don’t live in the US and just had been there for one vacation I remember having wonderful caramel dips with apples. I used to love them but (thinking about my shape) actually was very happy I did not find any in my country. Anyway, this recipe looks wonderful and I love the fact it’s not a ‘normal’ caramel dip but a very special and stunning one!

    So the “apple pie spice” is the 1/2 tsp. cinnamon + 1/2 tsp. ginger?
