This easy Cream Cheese Caramel Apple Dip is a delicious and easy cream cheese fruit dip recipe. It's made with only 3 ingredients but boy, it's impressive. It can be served with crisp apples or any of your favorite fruit.
What to serve with Cream Cheese Fruit Dip:
This easy cream cheese fruit dip recipe is especially ah-mazing with crisp fall apples. It's rich, sweet and creamy and the perfect pairing for apples. Granny Smith, Gala, Honey Crisp, Pink Lady, are all the best apples for caramel dipping. Pretty much any of your favorite crisp apples will work great.
Strawberries, Pineapple, orange slices, grapes, and even cantaloupe are all great options for dipping in this fruit dip.
Make-ahead Apple Dip Recipe:
This apple dip recipe can be made a couple of days ahead of when it needs to be used. It can sit in the fridge for up to 3 days before being used. Just be sure to leave some of the caramel aside so you can make it fancy before serving. Of course, it will taste great without the caramel sauce but everyone loves fancy food.
Caramel Cream Cheese Dip:
If your family loves to dip apples in caramel, this is the apple dip recipe for you. It is a caramel-flavored cream cheese spread. It is silky smooth and has just the right amount of tang and sweetness.
Ingredients in Caramel Apple Dip:
Cream Cheese: Full fat or low-fat cream cheese work great in this recipe. Just be sure your cream cheese is room temp before you mix it. Otherwise, you will have little chunks of cream cheese that aren't mixed. One of the best things about this apple dip recipe is that it is silky smooth.
Brown Sugar: Light Brown sugar work great in this recipe. If you're in a pinch and only have dark brown sugar on hand, It'll do too. Your caramel apple dip will just be a little more rich in flavor and darker in color.
Caramel Syrup: As far as caramel Syrups go, I just used the one I picked up from the grocery store. You can certainly make your own but pre-made is quick and easy. I've used the Hershey brand and also Mrs. Richardsons, and they both worked great.
