Caramel Cheesecake Apple Dip

I wanted a simple dip for my apple one day and caramel apples are one of my favorite desserts, as is cheesecake, so I thought I may as well combine them all into one quick and ridiculously simple dip.

To say this dip is good is speaking much too lightly. I’m totally in love with it! It makes a great last minute treat for a party because, really it can be made in just a few minutes (and if you have an apple slicer things are almost too easy).

I almost always have cream cheese on hand, since it’s such a great ingredient for sweet and savory dishes. Caramel topping may not be a regular ingredient in your house, but the good news is that jars of caramel topping are shelf stable and easy to keep on hand. Graham cracker crusts are easy to buy and save time, but you can also use a food processor to crush graham crackers into tiny pieces for dipping.

Serve it with your favorite kind of apples (I think it would also be delicious with bananas and maybe a drizzling of chocolate mmm) and enjoy!

  • Break graham cracker pie crust into pieces and place pieces in a ziploc bag, then seal bag and using a rolling pin crush graham cracker crust pieces until finely broken (there should no longer be chunks).
  •  Serve with apple slices. Dip apple slices into caramel cheesecake dip then into broken graham cracker crust. Store cheesecake dip in refrigerator up to one week.
