IMG_20150901_191928 If you have a lot of apples right now and looking for something different to do with them, this dip is sure to be a hit!

It’s the simplest of desserts, great for a snack or for a late night treat!

All you need is cream cheese, a caramel sauce of your choice and some apples.

Get the cream cheese to a soft consistency, if you don’t want to wait you can microwave it for a few seconds so it stirs well. Depending on how sweet you want it, you can adjust the measurements.

I put 3 parts cream cheese to 1 part caramel – it’s sweet enough, but mostly you get the creaminess and just a bit of the caramel flavour.

Mix it up until it’s velvety smooth – you can just do this by hand, no need for a mixer at all.

I used Shirriff caramel sauce, but anyone will work. Not hard caramels though, you really want this to incorporate well.

Slice them up and you’re ready to serve!

This dip is so good I offered to take the kiddo out for ice cream and she asked me to make this instead 🙂

Great little fall treat and the perfect way to use up apples, even crab apples will work with this recipe.
