fruit dips are one of my favorite things! i already love eating fruit of all kinds just by themselves, but having a creamy fruit dip makes snacking on a regular ‘ol apple feel like a special treat. and with only three ingredients, this apple dip is a no-brainer, especially when you consider what those three ingredients are!:
cream cheese, prepared caramel dip (i found it in the produce section beside the apples – how convenient!), and a package of heath bits (in with the chocolate chips section). and, of course, you’ll need granny smith apples to eat the dip with! or just use a spoon…it’s up to you! i am not one to judge. something about people in glass houses….
the first thing you need to do is soften the cream cheese so it’s easy to stir, and then mix in two big spoonfuls of the caramel sauce. no measuring here. but do make sure you mix them together until they’re really well combined.
spread the cream cheese/caramel mixture into the bottom of a pie plate (or into three individual 1/2 pint jars, if you plan on sharing with a friend).
next, use the remaining caramel sauce to make the next layer.
and then just top with heath bits!
c’mon, add a bit more than that….
there ya go. cover the whole top with the chocolate & toffee heath bits. it is a thing of beauty. i can’t want to cut up a bunch of granny smith apples into slices and dig into this decadent, creamy treat! aren’t we supposed to have an apple a day?
my sister asks me to bring this to every family get together and i never get to bring any home. i hope you like it just as much as i (and my family) do!Print

Thanks for the EventTrender.com shout out! We love your blog and all the great ideas!
I accidentally bought hersheys caramel topping… will that work? Or should I hit a different store (this is all target had)
I’m sure it would be fine – it may not be as thick as the caramel dips, but it will still taste good 🙂
