Sometimes I feel like apples get overlooked in favor of pumpkin this time of year, but at my house, we’d choose apple inspired desserts and baked goods over pumpkin most of the time.
I personally love pumpkin–everyone else in my family, not so much. But honestly, if I was forced to choose, I’d probably go with apple too.
And this super simple caramel apple dip, made with only four ingredients, is the perfect way to enjoy fresh, in-season apples. The secret is the brûléed topping, which totally take this dip to another level.
If you love the flavors of caramel and crème brûlée, then you are going to love this caramel apple dip!
And of course, you need apples for dipping. We like the contrast of tart Granny Smith apples to the sweetness of the dip, but any kind of apples will work.
If you don’t have apples, I can confirm that this dip is also delicious eaten straight from the spoon.
