You will not be able to stop eating this Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Pie Dip!!! Warm, cinnamon brown sugar apples smothered in peanut butter caramel sauce = insanely delicious Thanksgiving, Fall or just because appetizer or dessert!
I can barely even handle the deliciousness that is this Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Pie Dip! That is a mouthful. A comforting, sweet, creamy Fall mouthful.
As you begin thinking about what to bring to your next holiday party or Thanksgiving itself, I can guarantee this will be the appetizer that EVERYONE will be raving about! It is so cravilicious it just might not make it to the party. And I wouldn’t blame you. In fact, it didn’t make it to smother its intended counterpart because it is that good…
I was originally thinking that a Salted Caramel Apple Peanut Butter Cheesecake was a brilliant idea. I had already made the peanut butter cheesecake. It was just chillin’ waiting to be doused in Salted Caramel Apples. But as I began melting my butter, adding my brown sugar, cinnamon and a splash of lemon juice and sauteing for 5 minutes, I had a feeling these apples might be a stand alone show stopper appetizer/dessert.
As I added my caramels and heavy cream and the apples began to tenderize in the brown sugar cinnamon bath, it was all but over for the peanut butter cheesecake idea. 10 minutes later as I stirred a couple tablespoons of smooth peanut butter into the the warm apples smothered in caramel to create the most luscious peanut butter caramel sauce and I could NOT PUT MY SPOON DOWN, I knew it was all about these apples.
And your Fall should be all about THIS Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Pie Dip!
And to make this Apple Pie Dip even more addicting, I’ve paired it with my homemade Cinnamon Chips which are a can’t-stop-munching entity all on their own. These delightful Cinnamon Chips take all but 10 minutes to prep by spraying with cooking spray, tossing with cinnamon/sugar then baking for 12ish minutes. You will be amazed how crispy these Cinnamon Chips get in the oven and are more than worth the little effort for something truly holiday special.
But if you decide not to make the chips, then Graham crackers, vanilla wafers, cinnamon sticks, etc. would also be delicious. Or just a spoon.
Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Pie Dip. Hands down the most favorite Fall appetizer you will ever make and quite possibly the only one you will ever need!
