THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS has changed, you can now link up ANY recipe you'd like. Come one, Come all. NO rules, NO requirements, just link up any recipe (or food related craft items) and hop around to visit all the great recipes.

I have always loved my apple dip that originally came from a Pampered Chef cookbook long long ago, but lately my friend has been making this great apple dip and so I thought I'd give it a try. It's actually almost exactly like mine, see original recipe here, but even better.

Caramel Apple Dip
idea from my friend Joleen, adapted by me, original idea from Pampered Chef

8 oz package cream cheese
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup chopped pecans (or use your favorite kind of nuts)
Caramel Ice Cream Topping
Heath Bar Crunch Topping (found in the baking isle)
Apple Slices (soak in Pineapple Juice)

In a small mixing bowl combine cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla beat until smooth. Add in pecans and beat until combined. Transfer to a serving bowl and then cover the top with Heath Crunch Bar and drizzle with lots of caramel on top.

Core and cut apples slices into wedges and then soak in pineapple juice. You can remove apples and serve on a platter with the dip and the apples will not go brown.
Perfect dip for my fresh picked apples from Oak Glen, it's apple picking season and I LOVE IT!

  3. Tina, your dip looks delicious. I love the tip about soaking the apple slices in pineapple juice. I knew about lemon juice, but had not heard about pineapple. I'll be that give the apple slices wonderful flavor, too. This week I bring Spaghetti Pepperoni Pie. Thanks for hosting.
