Caramel Apple Dip Recipe

This is the Caramel Apple Dip recipe of your childhood, the one made with cream cheese, sugar, vanilla. Make a giant batch because people go crazy for it!

Fall is the most depressing time of the year for me.

Once September hits, everyone back in the Midwest goes apple-picking. They wear flannel shirts to combat the blustery winds. The frost crunches under their boots.

Their cheeks are rosy with cold and delight, and Facebook is just STUFFED with happiness.

While out here in LA, we are still frying eggs on our sidewalks. For another 2 months, even.

I used to cry about it every year, but now I just make Caramel Dip for apples and eat it by the pool.

You’ve probably had this Apple Dip before. It’s that one your Mom or Grandma or Aunt or Neighbor made for you when you were growing up.

It’s a delightful combination of cream cheese, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla. And that’s it!

You can whip it up in minutes, and suddenly everyone you know loves apples. I ate two whole apples myself immediately after taking these pictures today! Yes, with cream cheese Caramel Apple Dip. No, that’s probably not a great idea. But definitely a tasty one!

Because this Caramel Dip is so sweet, tart apples (Granny Smiths, for example), work really well. However, I like a mix of red and green apples because it’s pretty. So, use whatever apples make sense in your world!

By the way, I’m a huge fan of this apple slicer. If you are in the market, it’s a good one.

    Thanks. Can’t wait to make it this weekend.

    I was wondering if cinnamon would be a good addition?

    1. meggan

      Hi Cristina! I tried this today. I added 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and I thought it tasted great! But, you need to let the flavors blend for a while. If you eat it immediately after adding the cinnamon, the flavor isn’t really there. But yes. Overall, it’s a lovely addition and I’m going to add info to this post about it. Thank you for the idea! -Meggan

      I would think so, yes! I am going to be testing recipes next Wednesday, I can add this to my list and let you know. Thanks Cristina! :D -Meggan

    How long does this dip stay in fridge??

    1. meggan

      Hi Annmarie! I always go by the CDC guidelines for leftovers which is 4 days. It might last longer, in fact I know it does, but I like to give the official answer when people ask questions. Thanks!

  4. By brown sugar….do you mean BROWN SUGAR or is there a granulated sugar that is brown?

    1. meggan

      Hi Pat! Brown sugar. Just regular ol’ brown sugar. I tend to have light brown sugar on hand, but you could also use dark. Thanks for the question and let me know if you need anything else. Have a great day!

  5. I sometimes have to remind myself to eat fruit along with the dip!! So good.

    If you don’t have a paddle mixer, do you recommend using a regular hand mixer or a spatula?

    1. meggan

      Hi April, thanks for this question. I’ll definitely update the recipe. It honestly doesn’t matter, either will work. I’d say if you hate doing dishes, just use a spatula. If you want it done faster, use the electric mixer. :)

  7. Looks unbelievable!!!! Can’t wait to try it.5 stars
