The Easiest Homemade Apple Dip

Caramel is one of my weaknesses. If there’s caramel involved in a recipe, I already know I’m going to love it. Some of my favorite caramel treats are saltine cracker toffee, turtle chex mix, caramel popcorn balls, and microwave caramel candies.

One of my favorite things to enjoy in the fall is a sweet caramel apple. I mean, who doesn’t love caramel apples…seriously?! Well if you happen to love them as much as I do, you are going to LOVE this easy recipe.

This toffee apple dip takes caramel apples to a whole new level. My friend introduced me to this recipe over ten years ago and I’ve enjoyed it ever since. Do you want to know the best thing about it? This recipe only takes five minutes to make. Can’t beat that! It’s perfect to enjoy as a quick snack or add to a fall charcuterie board when entertaining.

4 Simple Ingredients!

This family-favorite dip is so simple to make with only four ingredients! Use a hand mixer to blend the ingredients together in minutes. This cream cheese apple dip is the perfect combination for any family and friends gathering.

  • Cream cheese: Soften your cream cheese before mixing together. It is best to leave it on the countertop for about 10 to 15 minutes at room temperature.

  • Vanilla: Added for a delicious flavor! Just a splash makes a sweet and savory difference.
  • Heath Toffee Bits: English toffee bits are the perfect sweet and savory treat to add to this apple dip. They have a crunchy texture that is perfect when dipping your apples in. You can even chop up Heath candy bars for bigger chunks on top!

Favorite Dipping Ideas

There are lots of yummy options to use for dipping. Our absolute favorite is sliced green apples. It tastes like a caramel apple that you would get from a local candy shop, without the work!

  • Apples: Green or red apples are both perfect for this apple dip. Fuji, gala, pink ladies, honeycrisp, or granny smith apples are great types to try. Tart apples are sometimes best but a sweet green or savory red apple is tasty too!
  • Pretzels: Give that sweet and salty taste when dipping the sticks or pretzel shaped pretzels into the apple dip.
  • Graham crackers: This is a soft texture cracker that can brake when dipping but always so good.
  • Waffle crisps: A sweet and crispy type of dipping treat!
  • Vanilla wafers: Perfect for dipping and hand held sweetness.
  • Animal crackers: Kids love these animal crackers! Make a charcuterie board with all these crackers, apples, and pretzels for a sweet, savory, and salty dish!
  • Cinnamon chips: We love these cinnamon chips for fruit dip and this apple dip is perfect for it. Cinnamon and apple is a great combination!
