What are some of the first things or foods we think of when we think of fall foods? Of course, pumpkin, stuffing, cinnamon, and APPLES! We all share the knowledge of and love of caramel apples and caramel apple dip. (If you don’t, we’ll try not to judge. Or we’ll just have more caramel apple dip for ourselves!) However, what about apples and caramel apple dip with a twist? Here is a caramel apple dip recipe you’ve might not have heard of too frequently: Cream cheese caramel apple dip. With most fruit dips, cream cheese is customary, but having it incorporated in a caramel sauce can definitely be new to the taste buds. Embrace the new and think of this dip recipe as a caramel apple cheesecake without the breadcrumbs or graham crackers crust.

Those who are gluten-sensitive or on low-carb diets can appreciate this! General foodies who need a quick bite will also like that it’s simple and quick to make with just four ingredients and five minutes of prep time (No recipe drawn out for 20 minutes here!). Those with peanut allergies can also appreciate this unique recipe that can call for toffee bits to add some of an Affy Tapple feel to this classic. Spruce up your Thanksgiving party and fall food ideas in a tasty way!

How to Make Caramel Apple Dip

Well, you definitely need apples slices with caramel dip, so that’s first. Grab ’em and cut ’em as thin or thick as you want.


This caramel dip recipe serves 8 individuals. (Or 1 individual with a major sweet tooth and appetite.)

  • 1 8 ounce block cream cheese softened
  • A few Heremes clamp jars
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 16 ounce container caramel apple dipping sauce or thick caramel sauce
  • 1/2 cup toffee bits, walnuts, or classic, traditional peanuts. Or all three!
  • Apple slices
  • Mixing bowl
  • Mixer or mixing paddle
  • Salt (Optional. We’d suggest healthier sea salt or pink Himalayan salt.)


  • Place the cream cheese in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Make sure the cream cheese is at room temperature for easier mixing. You might want to sit out the cream cheese on your counter before beginning this caramel apple dip recipe.
  • Add the sugar and beat until thoroughly combined.
  • Scoop and portion out the cream cheese mixture into the canning jars.
  • Pour the caramel dip or sauce over the cream cheese mixture.
  • Top with toffee and/or nut bits. Roasting them can create a pie taste. Sprinkle with salt.
  • Grab your apple slices and get to dipping! Or store the cream cheese caramel apple dip in the jars in the fridge for later.

If you do opt to eat this apples and caramel dip later then we’d suggest applying some lemon juice to your apple slices and string them in some of the canning jars as well or else you’ll find them turned brown. Don’t worry about them becoming tart apples. With the sweetness of this homemade caramel apple dip, you’ll find it a nice combination or completely overwhelmed by the cream cheese mixture’s taste. Alternatively, you can always just prepare the apple slices just before eating.
