Caramel apple dip

Oh, I'm so happy to be sharing this little recipe with you!  It's easy, and so delicious!  Crowd-pleaser, for sure.

Apple dip

I found the recipe here on a fellow Islander's blog, although I did modify it.  The recipe is simple:  1 pkg caramel sauce (find in the produce section - it's used straight-up for dipping apple slices), 1 pkg softened light cream cheese, crushed skor bar pieces (some mixed in the dip, some on top for garnish).  The original recipe also calls for 1/2 cup brown sugar but I think the dip is sweet enough with the caramel and skor bits.

The part of this dip that got the biggest response was definitely the tray of apple slices.  I used a combo of Granny Smith and Red Delicious.  I arranged them in alternating colours and it made quite a visual impression!

My dad has over thirty years of experience as a grocery man, so he had a great tip for keeping the apple slices from oxidizing (i.e. turning brown).  Dip them in 7-up.  Good ol' 7-up.

An up-shot of using the pop was that at the end of the process, you had a delicious little apple-lemon-lime beverage to sip!  (Mike came up with that).

Here is a final shot of the dip before it was taken to the annual family party and devoured.

Something quick to make for a New Years Eve party, maybe?
