With the holiday season rapidly approaching, this caramel apple dip is a lifesaver for any gathering. Whether it be a shower, party, or fun holiday get-together, this dip will have everyone raving.
This caramel apple dip is SO easy to make. It is perfect for any fall gathering, especially when you need to provide an easy sweet treat. Besides just tasting delicious, this dip looks has a beautiful presentation and will look amazing at any gathering.
What ingredients do I need for caramel apple dip?
This caramel dip is SO easy to make and has very simple ingredients. One of the main ingredients in this dip is whipped cream cheese. Make sure that you get the whipped version of cream cheese. The regular cream cheese will not have the same fluffiness that makes this dip so delicious. You also need chopped pecans, smashed pretzels, tiny marshmallows, and drizzled caramel. Once you add all of these together, you can lay out a spread of sliced apples. Either you can slice the apples yourself, or you can just buy the pre-sliced apples if you are in a hurry.
How can I make the presentation of this dip look good?
The first thing that I would recommend in order to make this dish looks beautiful on the table is to pick a pretty board or bowl to put it in. Once you choose the container, then you can spread your ingredients on top and slowly layer the pecans, pretzels, and marshmallows, and top it off with the drizzled caramel.
What type of caramel should I use for caramel apple dip?
I use Ghiradelli caramel drizzle to add on top of this caramel apple dip. This caramel is SO delicious and you can find it at almost any store you look. It is much more convenient than making your own while also being just as yummy as homemade caramel.
What ingredient can I substitute for the nuts?
If you can’t have nuts for allergen/dietary reasons, don’t worry! You can substitute the nuts in this recipe for something equally as delicious. You can always use roasted sunflower seeds as an alternative that is still very fall-inspired. Other options include toasted coconut or toffee. Either way, whatever you choose to sub out the nuts with will still be just as yummy in this dip.
Can I prep caramel apple dip beforehand?
Absolutely! It is definitely possible to prep this caramel apple dip beforehand. However, I would recommend that if you prep it beforehand to decorate as you want the final product to look. You can always add more but you can’t take away what you already added. If you prep it beforehand, just make sure that you cover it up and place it in the fridge so it doesn’t go bad.
What are some other things I can dip besides apples?
You can dip whatever your heart desires into this caramel apple dip. However, I have some recommendations if you want a wider spread. Something that would work super well is graham crackers and other sweet treats or other types of fruits, for example, strawberries.
