Every year about this time, I make a cream cheese apple dip that never lasts long around my house. I have to be pretty strategic about who's around when I make it, or I might not get much at all.

It only takes 3 ingredients to make this creamy apple dip recipe (4, if you sprinkle Heath bits on top). And there's no cooking or baking involved.

It's so easy to make, definitely my kind of recipe.

And while you can serve it with just about any kind of apples, my favorite are Granny Smith. There's something pretty wonderful about combining tart apples with the sweetness of this caramel cream cheese dip.

This dip, to me, signals the beginning of fall. Don't you just love everything about fall? While it's sad to leave summer behind, there's just something magical about this wonderful season of the year.

Know what else signals the beginning of fall for me? The scent of my favorite Instant Pot apple butter and apple oatmeal crisp wafting through the house.

HOW TO MAKE CARAMEL APPLE DIP

Making this sweet dip is as easy as 4 steps. All you need is a mixer.

  1. Whip the softened cream cheese by itself first.
  2. Then combine cream cheese, caramel extract, and powdered sugar until the cream cheese mixture is smooth and creamy.
  3. Wash and slice apples to serve with your dip, and place the dip in a small serving dish or ramekin.
  4. Optional step: Top the dip off with toffee bits, if desired. I used Heath Bits, the ones with the chocolate and toffee.

WHAT TO PAIR WITH CREAM CHEESE CARAMEL APPLE DIP

Personally, I love pairing Granny Smith apple slices with this dip. But we've also enjoyed it with other favorites like JonaGolds and Honeycrisp apples.

There's something delicious about pairing tart apples with a sweet dip, though.

Handy Tip: To help keep your apples from turning brown, sprinkle them with a little bit of lemon juice.

CAN I FREEZE THIS DIP OR MAKE IT AHEAD?

You can freeze this dip, but I wouldn't advise freezing the apples. Just make sure you give it plenty of time to thaw before you serve it.

Also, be sure to cover it well or seal it in an airtight container to prevent freezer burn.

As for making ahead, I'd likely make it the night before, and just make sure you store it in the refrigerator because it needs to stay chilled.
