Finally, a caramel apple dip that stays soft for weeks, without reheating. This recipe makes a huge batch, making it perfect for your next gathering, afternoon snack, or Fall party.
THE BEST CARAMEL APPLE DIP. EVER!
I know it’s pretty bold to say this caramel apple dip is the best ever. But really, it’s the truth.
I’ve tried so many different caramel apple dip recipes. While the flavor was good, I didn’t like the fact that the caramel would harden up after reheating.
When it comes to these Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars (2 dozen cookies in 25 minutes, yes please!) and this Caramel Apple Dip, I will claim them to be the best all day long.
In fact, these 2 recipes are the most popular on the blog!
WHY YOU’LL FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS FRUIT DIP!
- This caramel dip is delicious! The flavor is light and creamy– a great compliment to apples, bananas, pineapple. It’s also yummy on ice cream! Or just plain by the spoonful. Don’t worry. I won’t tell.
- This caramel apple dip stays soft without any reheating! Seriously. Ever made some delicious caramel that hardens after just a few minutes? Not this one.
- This recipe makes a ton-around 7 cups of caramel goodness! But don’t let that scare you. (You’ll see why in my next reason.) Because it makes so much, it’s the perfect recipe for a baby shower, bridal shower, caramel apple bar , Thanksgiving dinner, back to school snack, and more! You can feed a crowd simply.
- The dip stays well in the fridge for a few weeks, so you can make a big batch of it and have it ready for a party, snack, dessert, or treat to take to someone on a moment’s notice.You can try out these other simple caramel apple dip recipes, but this one is still our favorite! Period.
HOW MUCH DOES THIS RECIPE MAKE?
One batch of this amazing caramel dip makes 7 cups worth. Yes, that’s a lot! But, don’t let that scare you. You can make one batch and keep it in the fridge for a few weeks, just pulling it out when you need a quick snack or treat.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED TO MAKE THIS:
- brown sugar
- real butter
- light corn syrup
- sweetened condensed milk
- sour cream
- cream cheese
- salt and vanilla
- apples, bananas, pineapple, or your favorite fruit
- 16-piece thin apple slicer for quick cutting
KEEP IN MIND:

- Make sure you have a clean, large bowl to store the caramel in after you have made it.
- This makes yummy and easy Fall gifts! Pick up some smaller glass jars to place the dip in and wrap it up in cellophane with an apple! So cute!
DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID!
Although making this caramel is not hard, you’ll want to be very careful when you make it so that you don’t overcook it.
The first time I made it I nearly burned it because I cooked it on too high of a heat. And I added double the sour cream. Oops! It still tasted fine, but the caramel apple dip will look much prettier and taste even better if you make it correctly.
Tip: So make sure to cook on a low heat to avoid burning and add the right amount of sour cream.
Also, before you add the sour cream and cream cheese to the caramel, be sure to mix them together well until there are no lumps.
PERFECT FOR CARAMEL APPLE BARS
If you’re wondering if this recipe is great for a Caramel Apple Bar, the answer is YES!
Like I mentioned, it stays soft for a few weeks in the fridge, meaning that if you are having a bridal shower, baby shower, or other Fall gathering say a family dinner, you can prepare this dip ahead of time and serve it as part of your caramel apple bar.

Here’s the Caramel Apple Dip Recipe!Print
The best soft caramel apple dip… no reheating required and stays good in the fridge for weeks!
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 cup real butter
- 1 cup light corn syrup
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 1 can (14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 8 oz sour cream
- 8 oz cream cheese, softened
- Combine butter, brown sugar, light corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil on medium-high heat and boil for 7 minutes. Stir consistently so it doesn’t burn.
- After 7 minutes, reduce heat to low. Pour in the sweetened condensed milk and vanilla and cook for 5 more minutes.
- Remove from heat. Cool until it is just warm to the touch.
- Meanwhile, mix the sour cream and cream cheese together with a hand mixer until very smooth. If you skip this step, you will have small white lumps of cream in your caramel. It will taste fine, just won’t be as pretty. Make sure your cream cheese is very soft to avoid lumps.
- Store in the fridge in an air-tight container. This caramel dip stays soft, so you will not have to reheat it each time you eat it unless you want it warm. Dip apples, bananas, or other fruit in it.
