Caramel Cream Cheese Apple Dip

Caramel and apples… a match made in heaven for sure!  This easy and delicious dip takes the flavors of a caramel apple, adds the creamy richness of cheesecake, and the sweet crunch of toffee, and you have about the most delicious dessert you can make in 5 minutes!

I first tasted this incredible combo at a friend’s house (hi Heather!) several years ago.  She shared the amazingly simple recipe and I have been impressing family and friends with it ever since!

To help slow the browning of the apple slices, immediately after cutting, add slices to a bowl of cool water with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Remove slices from lemon water (allow excess water to drain off) and serve.

As soon as I took these photos, I shared this plate with my girls as an afternoon treat.  It was devoured in no time!   I have yet to come across anyone who does not LOVE this dip!

Happy snacking!
