Apple Dippers Bar

July 1st, 2014 Posted in Recipes
Guaranteed to keep any kid or kid-like-adult busy for 30 minutes :) Keeping them clean, that’s another story!

Here’s how you make these:

For the caramel dip, unwrap 20 caramels and add in a splash of milk. Microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted and set aside.

For the chocolate dip, measure out some milk chocolate chips into a bowl and add in a splash of milk. Microwave in 30 second intervals until completely melted and set aside.

….are you seeing a pattern here?

Milk {and cream cheese} are items we always have on hand. Just ALWAYS. My kids drink organic milk and I’m always baking or spreading something with cream cheese. Since it’s June Dairy Month, I thought it fitting to use them in each dip recipe.

PS- dairy items are so easy to use and develop recipes with! There’s always inspiration and creative possibilities with those products! Probably why I can always be found in the dairy aisle. Lol!

PPS- dairy products also include my favorite *addicting* coconut almond milk! Mmmm…..

PPPS- I know you were really wondering about my favorite non-dairy-but-still-found-in-the-dairy-aisle-milk. You’re welcome.

For the peanut butter dip, stir peanut butter together with some softened cream cheese….then add in some marshmallow fluff.

So it turns into this smooth and fluffy mixture that tastes amazing with apples.

Now for the goodies!! Anything that is small, sweet and edible would be a good topping. My favorites were the coconut and salted peanuts!

The last thing to do is wash and slice your apples. Then lay everything out and start dipping!
