Candy Bar Caramel Apple Dip

candy bar caramel apple dip

With a name like “Candy Bar Caramel Apple Dip” this recipe doesn’t even really need an introduction, does it! But I’ll give one anyway, because that’s half the fun of writing a food blog. I first had this simple yet delicious dip at a baby shower that my friend Teresa hosted a few years ago. I feel kind of bad looking back on that party because I’m pretty sure I ate 75% of the dip without sharing–definitely not my best party guest behavior! Teresa was generous enough to give me the top secret recipe after the party, and I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I probably said something like, “Shut up!” Another party guest faux pas. I look forward to apple season every year now so that I can whip it up. I’ve made it for a few get-togethers in the past few years, and it is always a huge hit. In fact, I made some Candy Bar Caramel Apple Dip just last week for a church youth group activity, and the double batch I made was practically inhaled by those teenagers. OK, I might have eaten a little too. I just can’t stop myself!

Candy Bar Caramel Apple Dip
Prep time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: lots
  • 1 brick cream cheese, softened
  • 1 16-oz tub caramel apple dip* (from the produce section)
  • about 12 oz broken toffee candy bar pieces (like a Heath bar or a Skor bar)
  • apple slices (This time, we used Sweet Tango apples, and oh my, were they amazing!)
  1. Beat softened cream cheese and caramel apple dip together in a medium bowl until smooth. Fold in broken candy bar pieces. Serve with apple slices, and try not to eat it all by yourself.
*Just in case you're wondering, yes, I do think you could substitute 2 cups of caramel sauce for the 16-oz tub of caramel apple dip called for in the recipe. Mind you, I haven't tried it, but I really can't see how it would be a bad idea. It would possibly make the dip more liquidy (depending on how thick your caramel sauce is), but the dip as is is pretty thick. So again, not a bad thing.

  1. Lulu, do you think it would still be good it I just used the toffee pieces from the baking aisle? I can see myself mowing this down and thought at least not having the chocolate might help…your thoughts?

    1. Hey Mo. Yes, I think that would work and still be delicious! One of the times I made it, I had some people eating it who had nut allergies, so we left out the toffee pieces entirely, and it was still yummy!
