This was definitely the hit of my party. I sliced all but 3 small apples of a 3 lb. bag and every apple was gone the the bowl licked clean. I was worried it was going to be too sweet but went ahead and added all the sugar anyway. It was perfect! I wanted to have all the food prep work done hours before the party so to keep the sliced apples from browning I put them in a bowl of about 4 cups of water and 1/4 cup lemon juice and kept them in the fridge. Right before I was ready to serve them I drained them and served them on a large platter with the dip in the middle. The last apple was as white as when I first served it.


Scrumptious! I love caramel apples but they can be a little hard to eat (not something you would serve at a party). SOLUTION: the flavor of this recipe is very close to caramel apples, but it is easy to make and easy to serve to a group. Suggestions: 1. add extra caramels for added caramel flavor. 2. be sure to melt the caramels completely to avoid clumps. 3. submerge apple slices in orange or lemon juice to prevent browning. 4. I prefer to use tart apples, like Granny Smith to balance out the sweetness and enhance the caramel flavor. 5. The dip refrigerates well. Enjoy! A perfect Autumn treat.


I've tried the caramel dip with cream cheese/brown sugar/vanilla. Adults love it. Even my 4-year-old son loves this one. The addition of actual caramel makes this a dip nobody can resist. Brought it to a party last night. People were trying it with EVERYTHING. Grapes, Brie, apples, bananas . . . Thick, sticky, sumptuous. I didn't put in quite as much water, and added vanilla. Refrigerates well. Thickens a bit, but still very spreadable and dippable. This will be a tradition for our family through the holidays. Teri
