#AppleWeek 1 Minute Caramel Apple Dip

It's the last day of Apple Week and I hope you have been having as much fun as I have checking out all of these great apple posts!  Today we are all sharing our "Anything Apple Goes" posts.  Pretty much it's a chance for us to share anymore of our apple posts that we haven't gotten to yet ;)

Today I'm sharing one of my go-to, quick snacks - my 1 Minute Caramel Apple Dip.  This is a recipe I learned from my mom how to make when I was a kid and that I plan on sharing with my kids how to make once they're old enough to handle a hand mixer.

This dip is not only great on apples, but any fruit that you're looking for a sweet and creamy dip for.  It works great to bring to get-togethers with family and friends, because it's quick to make and it's a nice, healthier option to add to the "food table".  Plus my kids (and I) love it.  I sometimes will to bring this dip, doctored up a bit, to gatherings.  I learned this trick from my friend Beth Ann at It's Just Life.  Just take the cream cheese apple dip, spread it on the bottom of a pie plate, then pour caramel sauce on top, and cover with Heath Bar bits.  It adds a little something for entertaining and it's oh, so good. :)

#AppleWeek 1 Minute Caramel Apple Dip

1 Minute Caramel Apple Dip

8 oz Cream Cheese
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
3/4 tsp Caramel extract

Mix ingredients together with a hand mixer until smooth.  Store in the refrigerator.  Serve with apple slices or your favorite fruit.

And to show how easy and fast this dip is, I'm going to do a Facebook LIVE video today at 3pm CST showing how it literally take 1 minute to make.  I hope you hop over to Facebook and watch today!

So, which Apple Week recipe are you most excited about that I shared this week - my Harvest Brats with Apple Slaw, my Apple Brown Betty, or today's 1 Minute Caramel Apple Dip?  Have you checked out some of the other Apple Week posts?  Which one of those are you looking forward to making?  Remember to Comment for a Cause!
