Caramel Apple Cheesecake Dip vindicates my awkward middle school years.

Caramel Apple Cheesecake Dip

In middle school, I was not one of the “Cool Kids.” I didn’t have the right pens (for whatever bizarre reason, glittery Gelly Roll and neon Uni-ball pens were signs of social status). I failed every single presidential fitness test event, except for the sit and reach. I had bad bad bad full-forehead bangs and a mouth full of braces. Boys didn’t bother to TP my house, and the “popular” girls did not invite me to their birthday parties. Yes friends, middle school was traumatic.

Now, when older, wiser, and big bangs-free me, walks into a party, the boys who wouldn’t waste their toilet paper on my yard and the girls who wouldn’t call me to go shopping flock to my side. While I’d like to credit my successful evolution from insecurely awkward pre-teen to confidently awkward adult, I’ll tell you my secret: it’s the caramel apple cheesecake dip.

Yes ladies and gentlemen, the girl holding the caramel apple cheesecake dip is the one to meet!

The Best Fluffy Caramel Apple Dip

Sweet, creamy, caramely, and smothered in toffee bits, caramel apple dip grabs the center of attention at any party. Other dips want to be this dip. It combines the lusciousness, sweetness, and tang of a cheesecake with the melt-in-your mouth, buttery brown sugar flavor of caramel.

When you bring caramel apple dip to a party, it’s clear that everyone loves you, er, your dip. You’ve combined cream cheese, homemade caramel, and toffee. Who could resist you it?

Now onto the buttery, crunchy, chocolatey toffee topping: These flecks of nutty candy add extra texture and enhance the caramel’s flavor. I’m a sucker for toffee and think it is totally underappreciated, but if toffee is not your favorite, I’m sure this dip would be fab with chopped peanuts, almonds, or crushed graham crackers. Should you decide to go big and top caramel apple cheesecake dip with all of the above, I support you.

  1. haha oh man the presidential fitness tests – I remember those! At our school some guys from the army would come in for a week to run the whole thing – so intense! lol But this cheesecake dip sounds amazing! Happy Tuesday friend!

    1. That DOES sound intense Ashley. Can I hide on the sidelines and eat dip instead? ;-) Happy Tuesday to you too!

  2. Oh yes, I had the bangs and the braces too! Thank goodness those things are out of the way and there’s more room for this dip! I sort of want to dive right into it. :)

  3. I don’t even know what to say about this dip, I’m tongue tied and blown away! Mayor yums!5 stars

    1. Homemade caramel all the way Jessica! It seems scary but is actually super simple. Plus, I hate peeling the wrappers off the store-bought ones anyway!

  4. Erin, I love your site! Food is a great way to gain friends. I was not at all popular in middle or high school. I was just kind of quirky and weird. Thanks to food, I’m cool now ;) Pinned this!

  5. You just gave me presidential fitness test flashbacks. I’m gonna need some of this dip to cope.
