The BEST Caramel Apple Dip! | Salt & Baker

10 years ago, my aunt made this caramel apple dip for a big Baker family gathering. (My maiden name is Baker, hence “Salt & Baker“). She placed out small individual sized bowls full of this apple dip, then had plates full of sliced apples. It was the perfect refreshment. A little healthy with a side of sweet.

I remember eating it and thinking how much I loved that it wasn’t a super thick, hard-to-keep-on-the-apple-thick kind of dip.

You are going to go crazy for this caramel apple dip! It’s quick and easy to make, and only requires 5 ingredients.

I will say this, eat the dip when it’s warm! This caramel apple dip doesn’t have to be eaten warm, but do yourself a favor and eat it warm.

How do you make The BEST Caramel Apple Dip? It’s easy…

  1. To whip this up, grab a small sauce pan. Turn your stove on low heat.
  2. Add the butter, brown sugar, and sweetened condensed milk to the sauce pan.
  3. Once the brown sugar has melted add cinnamon and vanilla.
  4. That’s it. Done.

Eat it while it’s warm. The dip has a runny consistency, but it will thicken as it cools. I prefer the runny consistency, but everyone is different. Maybe you’ll prefer the thicker consistency? Keep me posted and tell me what you think!
