This is my go-to apple dip. It’s surprising how addicting this actually is given it only has three ingredients. But I love that it is so easy! I brought it to a Halloween party last weekend and it was gobbled up. It would be great for upcoming Thanksgiving gatherings (or really just store it in your fridge and it’s great for anytime snacking-apples make it kind of healthy right?) Whip up a batch, layer it in a nice bowl and serve it with sliced apples. Or this makes a great little gift when layered in small mason jars and wrapped with an apple.
1 tub (16 oz) caramel dip (such as Litehouse brand Old Fashioned Caramel)
1 pkg (8 ounces) cream cheese softened (I use light)
1 package Heath bits (found in the baking aisle by the chocolate chips)
In a mixing bowl, stir together the softened cream cheese and the tub of caramel, reserving about 1/4 cup of the caramel to spread over the dip. Place in a serving bowl and spread the reserved caramel over the top. Sprinkle with the Heath bits (about 1/2 cup or more to your liking). Serve with sliced apples. Store leftovers in the refridgerator.
To keep apples from browning, slice and soak in a bowl with enough water to cover apples and with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Let apples soak for a few minutes then drain water, drying any excess water with a few paper towels.
For a cute gift, make dip as directed and then put in quarter pint (4 oz) jars. Put an apple on top, place in a cellophane bag, and tie with ribbon. Makes 4-5 jars.
