The kids are always hungry when they come home from school. I like to have stuff ready for them to snack on when they walk through the door. We always have a fruit basket full of apples, bananas and other fruit. This caramel apple dip recipe is perfect to go alongside some fresh fruit. This dip is simple to make and uses just four ingredients: cream cheese, peanut butter, marshmallow fluff and caramel sundae sauce.

Apples and caramel – apples and peanut butter; both combinations are incredible. This dip is so creamy due to the cream cheese and marshmallow creme. I have to say, I LOVE marshmallow creme.

I have lots of different ‘after school’ snacks. Since the kids always come home hungry, I like to have a number different things that I rotate around for them to eat. Some are especially good for those days when they bring friends home after school. Here are some of my recipes:

Use a mixer to blend the cream cheese until smooth.

The first step in this caramel apple dip is to beat the cream cheese. While you can beat everything together right away, I find that beating the cream cheese first, results in a creamier and more whipped consistency for the dip. Just beat it until it is a smooth consistency.

Add peanut butter, marshmallow cream and caramel sauce to the cream cheese.

Once the cream cheese is soft and smooth, add the rest of the ingredients to the bowl. I use creamy peanut butter because I like the dip to be smooth. The marshmallow cream/creme really helps to make this dip light and fluffy. With regards to the caramel sauce, I use the ice cream sundae sauce. I always keep this on hand and it is perfect for for this dip.

Blend the mixer until smooth and creamy.

Use the electric hand mixer to beat the dip until it is smooth and creamy.

Drizzle some extra caramel sauce on top of the spread.

I like to drizzle a little more caramel sauce on top of the dip, when it is ready to be served.

When the kids came home they dove into the dip and immediately started asking, “Are you going to put this on your food blog?” They loved it and tore through the apples. I peeled and sliced some bananas and they were popular with the dip as well. I have not yet decided what I liked better with the dip, apples or bananas – not sure.

  • This is one of the best dips I’ve seen in a while. Of course, I do have a thing for peanut butter!

    I’ve pinned it and will probably be serving this at our Christmas get together!

  • Hi Steve,

    I always did think that peanut butter and apples were made for one another. Looks really yummy and certainly something that I need to try in the near future.

  • Hey Steve, would this keep it’s consistency if you warmed it up? I’m just thinking that a warm dip would be yummy … Maybe even as a different fondue. Looks great!

    • Hey Janice! We had a little bit of the dip left and warmed it up. 25 seconds in the microwave warmed it up nicely. It held its consistency fairly well, although a bit thinner. After tasting it, we all thought it tasted GREAT but also thought it might taste better on something different (cookies, biscotti). Using this as a fondue dip would be a great idea I think! Thanks for sharing the idea.
