5 Awesome Apple Dip Recipes – Caramel, Chocolate, Nuts and Cheese

Easy to make homemade apple dip recipes. Homemade Caramel Apple Dip , Chocolate Almond, Maple Bacon, Walnut Ricotta Cream, and Pistachio and Blue Cheese.

One of my favorite things about fall is apple harvest – and apple dip! The thing is, last year I grabbed a container of caramel dip at the orchard without looking at the ingredients. When we got home, popped the dip container open and tasted it, I knew I had made a big mistake. It tasted like chemical preservatives and the texture was awful. The ingredient list took up one side of the container, and most of it was things that were hard to pronounce. We ended up tossing it.

This year I’m prepared! I raided my old recipe books and did some experimenting in the kitchen, and have put together five great apple dip recipes to share with you. We have Classic Caramel Apple Dip, Chocolate Almond, Maple Bacon, Walnut Ricotta Cream, and Pistachio and Blue Cheese. These are great for snacking or entertaining – heck, you could even add a few more dippers and make a full meal out of dips. Since everything can be prepped ahead, this would be a great option for holiday entertaining.

So, without further ado, let’s get to the apple dip recipe goodness! No chemicals, high fructose corn syrup or hard to pronounce ingredients allowed!

Note: To keep your apples from browning, dip them in lemon juice after slicing.

Homemade Caramel Apple Dip

Adapted from Favorite Recipes of America: Desserts including Party Beverages (1968)

Ingredients

  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 2 cups light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter

Break egg into a double boiler or heavy bottom saucepan, whisk lightly. Add remaining ingredients. Cook on medium heat, whisking frequently until mixture starts to bubble. Cook for a few minutes, whisking constantly, until thick. Do not boil at high heat or you are likely to overcook your egg and cream. Pour into a heat proof container (I use pyrex); cover and refrigerate. Mixture will thicken more as it cools. Makes around 2 1/2 cups. Keeps for about a week in the fridge. Also goes well with other firm fresh fruits such as pears or not too ripe bananas, and makes an excellent ice cream topping.

Easy to make homemade apple dip recipes. Homemade Caramel Apple Dip , Chocolate Almond, Maple Bacon, Walnut Ricotta Cream, and Pistachio and Blue Cheese.

Maple Bacon Apple Dip

Because everything’s better with bacon.

Ingredients

  • One 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2-4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2-3 strips bacon, cooked and finely crumbled or chopped

Directions

This one is best whipped up in a stand mixer or food processor to make sure it gets nice and fluffy, although if you don’t have either you can mix by hand – just make sure your cream cheese is soft.

In a stand mixer bowl or food processor, whip together cream cheese and sour cream. Scrape down sides of bowl and make sure they are evenly blended. Add 2 tablespoons maple syrup. Blend well. Taste. Add more if you like a sweeter dip. Blend in crumbled bacon, reserving a small amount for garnish if desired. Refrigerate and use within one week. Makes about 2 cups. This one would work great with apples and pears, hard bread sticks or pretzels, and possibly celery and kohlrabi strips, depending on your flavor preferences.

Pistachio and Blue Cheese Apple Dip

I’m a blue cheese fan and also enjoy pistachios, so this tangy, crunchy dip sounded like a winner to me. Adapted from The Encyclopedia of Homemade Dips (1996)

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces blue cheese (crumbled is fine, since it ends up crumbled in the dip)
  • 2/3 cup plain yogurt (6 ounce container)
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 3 ounces pistachios
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Dash of salt

Directions

Add blue cheese to a medium bowl. Crumble finely with the back of a fork if needed. Stir in yogurt and milk and mix until well blended.

Shell pistachios. Rub off any excess husk/skin. Coarsely chop the nuts. Set aside a few for garnish, if desired. Mix the rest of the pistachios with the blue cheese blend. Place in storage container, cover and chill.

To serve, place dip in serving dish and garnish with reserved pistachios. Also goes well with veggies, slices of homemade French bread or pita bread. Makes a delicious and unique baked potato topping.
