Remember the delicious caramel dip I posted last week? You must try it ASAP if you haven’t already. I made the cutest little gifts with the leftovers for a few friends. I spotted a caramel apple gift at a local bakery and then again on Pinterest and knew I had to make something similar with my recipe. It really was so simple to put together and everyone loved them! Such a fun treat! Here’s what you need to get started-


  • 1/2 pint mason jar
  • caramel dip
  • green apple
  • clear bag
  • twine
  • tag


1. Place caramel dip in mason jar. Then put your jar and apple in a bag. Tie with ribbon or twine and add a little note.

Simple as that! Easy peasy!

    Great idea! I want to make some of these for gifts. Did you still top the dip with toffee bits before putting on the lid?

    Do you happen to remember how much of your dip fit in that size Mason jar? Did you use the full batch in one jar? Thanks!

      In case anyone else is wondering, one batch of the dip recipe will fill about 1 and 1/2 of the half pint jars pictured.

    Doesn’t this need to be refrigerated until giving since it’s got cream cheese in it? That would make it hard to give as a teacher gift or such. Just checking because I absolutely love the idea!

      Yes, it’s best to keep it refrigerated until ready to pass out. The cream cheese will be fine up to 12 hours (just like with cinnamon rolls and cream cheese frosting). Hope that helps!
