Caramel Apple Pie Dip

Caramel Apple Pie Dip – A quick and easy no-bake dessert dip recipe! Caramel cream cheese topped with apple pie filling, perfect for fall!

Welcome to day 3 of #AppleWeek! This has been a recipe I have been so excited to make since the idea for it first came to me about two months ago.  I wanted it to be everything that apple pie is but in a dip-able form that is perfect for parties! I debated between making it an apple pie dip or a caramel apple dip but in the end, I just combined the two desserts into a caramel apple pie dip because why not? It tastes amazing so I’d say it worked out for the best!

To start off, this dip has a layer of caramel cream cheese at the bottom.  It is literally just caramel and cream cheese beaten together but it is so tasty.  Honestly, I could eat a bowl of that just on it’s own.

The next layer is apple pie filling.  This can be either bought pre-made or made from scratch.  Personally, I love my apple pie filling recipe that I developed back when I made my apple hand pies so I wanted to use that again.  It was also a great way to try out my new paring knife from Swiss Diamond for participating in #AppleWeek along with Rodelle vanilla! The knife was incredible and the vanilla was great as always! I am an ambassador for Rodelle so I always use their products when I am baking.

To finish the dip off, I covered it with crushed graham crackers and peanuts.  The graham crackers remind me of pie crust and the peanuts come in because you can’t have caramel and apples together without peanuts!

To serve this tip, I suggest having graham crackers, pretzels, nilla wafers, or pie crust cookies with it.  Alternatively, you could serve a healthier option like apple slices, strawberries, or grapes.

How to make caramel apple pie dip

Step 1 – Make apple pie filling (optional)

The key to a good apple pie dip is the filling. To make it, combine water, cornstarch, brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, and salt together in a pan over medium-high heat. Once it thickens up, add in the apples and cook for 10 minutes.

Alternatively, you can just buy pre-made apple pie filling to save time.

Step 2 – Make homemade caramel sauce (optional)

You can either make homemade caramel sauce (click HERE for recipe) or buy it pre-made to save time.

Step 3 – Mix together caramel and cream cheese

Beat together caramel and cream cheese until well combined and then place it in the bottom of a pie dish or whichever serving dish you will be using.

Step 4 – Top with apple pie filling

Top the caramel cream cheese with the apple pie filling.

Step 5 – Top with graham crackers and peanuts

Sprinkle the top of the dip with crushed graham crackers and peanuts.  The peanuts are optional but I think they are a great additional that is reminiscent of a caramel apple.
