Caramel Apple Dip
And everyone likes a good dip, right? Heh heh.
Several years ago, my mom and sisters came to visit and it happened to be just after an apple picking excursion to a local orchard. In addition to using them like guinea pigs for a pumpkin latte recipe, I made three different kinds of apple dip, hoping that I could narrow it down and just make one version from then on. My plan worked and this was the result. All were good, but the others couldn’t hold a candle to this fluffy, creamy, carmeley (is that a word?) dip. Don’t get me wrong! I love apples and straight up carmel dip. But sometimes it is nice to do something a bit different for a change. So now this is really the only one I make anymore.
This dip is great with apples or pears. It also may or may not be insanely good right from the spoon.
I made Pumpkin Dip earlier this week so I didn’t even bother to measure out the marshmallow in this recipe. I just used whatever was left in the jar. My husband always complains that this dip is too crunchy (from the brown sugar) but if you leave it for a minute or two after you mix it up and then just give it another stir, the sugar melts and it becomes nice and smooth. Of course, the kids and I just ate it right from the get-go! Just scrumptious this time of year! It is also great to bring to a party (maybe an outdoor picnic?) with a big bag of apples. Just don’t forget the pairing knife! One Year Ago: Fried Noodles I ate these yesterday for lunch!
