Easy Caramel Apple Dip Recipe

This weekend I made this homemade Easy Caramel Apple Dip Recipe out of part of my Moms Caramel Candy recipe. If you love recipes like this, you will LOVE my Easy Homemade Caramel Popcorn Recipe! One of the reason I made it was to get my kids to eat more apples! I love to create all kinds of yummy recipes that kids love to eat!

I adapted this recipe caramel apple dip to my liking (it called for white sugar) I prefer Brown for something like this.  After looking around the internet too, I found that it’s pretty much made the same just about everywhere you look…with very basic ingredients.  So enjoy and serve up this deelish sauce with Apples for a special treat…now and then.

Checking the thickness of Caramel Apple Dip

Use right away or pour into a container.  It will be hot, hot, hot so be careful if you use right away.  Give a minute or two to cool down. 

The Caramel Apple Dip will thicken upon standing..You can put into frig for later…if it thickens more than you like just put into the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften.

Which Apples are Best for Dipping?

Honestly, you can use any kind of apple that you love. Here is a simple list of the best apples “I” think are good for dipping:

  • Granny Smith ~ I love the sweet and sour taste
  • Golden Delicious ~ Nice mild flavor so the Caramel Dip is really the star
  • Gala ~ pretty inexpensive
  • Fuji ~ these are also inexpensive and delish

Enjoy getting your kids to eat there apples with this special dip..oh and you too!  Now and then Smile

How do You Cut Apples for Dipping

Cut apples into wedges for the easiest dipping. Cut the wedges for the size of little hands. So you decide whether the wedges should be thick or thin.
