Snickers and Caramel Apple Dip

Here’s the deal. I’m not going to lie to you and say this is some sort of healthy dip. That, it is not. It’s full of cream cheese and sugar and store bought candy bars. And the fact that it is an apple dip is completely outrageous.

For the most part, my family eats pretty healthy. Apples and oranges are my children’s snack of choice and I make things like homemade rotisserie chicken, overnight oats, and homemade spaghetti sauce to name a few. I also try to substitute healthier ingredients in our favorite recipes (like this creamy soup using pureed white beans instead of cream or cheese).

I am a big believer in all things in moderation and still eating those delicious, but oh-so-bad-for-you snacks…. once in awhile. This is where this recipe comes in to play.

Snickers and Caramel Apple Dip

Snickers + Caramel Apple Dip..... OH. MY.

Snickers and Caramel Apple Dip

8 oz cream cheese
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 Snickers bars, diced small (if you really want to take it to the next level you could try making homemade Snickers)
2-3 Tbls caramel sauce (make your own or buy any store bought)

Beat the cream cheese, sugars and vanilla in a mixer for a few minutes until smooth. Fold in half of the diced Snickers and a drizzle of caramel sauce. Refrigerate for a few hours. To serve, top with the remaining Snickers and caramel.

Snickers and Caramel Apple Dip. This stuff is addicting!

I’ve been wanting to try to recreate a healthier version of this dip, but I just don’t think it’s possible. So I am fine with it being a delicious treat that my kids have on occasion.

I do usually double this recipe, especially when taking it to barbecues or parties. It goes quick and everybody loves it. Even my mom, who is a health nut, who usually only eats salads eats this- which is a testament to it’s deliciousness :)

Snickers and Caramel Apple Dip. Everybody loves this!!

    All things in moderation, and this looks like a deliciously sinful treat that is perfect for certain occasions! Assuming you aren’t eating it by the pint on a daily or weekly basis, I’d say you’re safe. Seriously drool-inducing.
