The Shady Porch: Easy Awesome Apple Dip


Easy Awesome Apple Dip

Here is one of the top contenders for the Epitome of Autumn ranks up there with Pumpkin Rolls, Candied Apples, and Chili.

It is one of those guilty pleasure treats, where we feel good about eating the apples, but we also know the yummy goo we're dipping them in is... well...not so good for us.

This dip is a sweet counterbalance to the crisp tartness of the apple. It is the perfect dish for game day Saturdays, movie nights, or any casual social gathering where licking your fingers is not frowned upon!

A most excellent treat! Crunchy apples and sweet caramel goodness.
I had the great pleasure of sharing time with family this weekend and I served this. We ate it while catching up on family news. After a while, my brother offered to take everyone's plate in to the sink with his. He noticed my Dad had run out of apple slices, but still had dip on his plate. He asked if Dad wanted more apples to finish his dip. Dad said, "No, just bring me a fork!" Bub declared, "Dad just gave you a great review for your dip...'skip the apples and just hand me a fork!'"

We laughed about it all weekend.

Here is the Way-TOO-Easy Recipe - Apple Dip

Caramel Sauce
2 - 8oz. bars cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 bag Heath Bar Crumbles

Mix softened cream cheese with the powdered sugar. Put the cream cheese mixture in a shallow bowl and cover in caramel sauce. Cover with Heath Bar crumbles. Just before serving stir it up to incorporate the crumbles.

To prepare the apples, simply rinse, and core, then slice into wedges.
