I grew up about 2 miles from the biggest caramel apple factory in the midwest.
Every fall my father would take me there, let me order caramel apples for my whole class, and then we would watch them be made.
It was like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory except well, I’m a girl named Heather and those were caramel apples.
But I got to watch them being made!
So since then my favorite fall snack is caramel apples.
With nuts. Lots and lots of nuts.
I created this dip to help me cope with caramel apple separation anxiety during the LONG boring months when caramel apples are not so easy to come by.
Oh and it’s perfect for fall too.
And it is simple.
Serve your homemade Caramel Apple Dip on Tableware from Shindigz!
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- 6 oz vanilla yogurt
- 1 15 oz can of Nestle La Lechera Dulce de Leche (NOT sweetened condensed milk)
- chopped peanuts
Take the cream cheese, and whip it with the yogurt until creamy smooth. Slowly add the caramel and whip it into the cream cheese – yogurt mixture till well combined and you have a consistent caramel color. Keep whipping till fluffy, about 30 seconds.
Top with nuts and serve with apples.
It doesn’t get easier!
And here’s where I got those Halloween plates from Shindigz!
