My family loves going to pick apples at our favorite local orchard and THIS dip is the perfect match for those delicious fresh-picked apples that I literally have bags and bags of ;)

We go to the orchard at least a couple times a year and always end up with more apples than we know what to do with! When Miss Add was little she used to call it the Apple Porchard… (and to her mama, it will always be the apple porchard ;) ).

Perfect Caramel Dip Crock Pot

So now we currently have an abundance of “Miss Add-hand-picked” Jonathan, Jonagold and Golden Delicious apples and the very first thing we did with them was make this Crock Pot Caramel Dip!

It is creamy.

It is sweet.

It only calls for 3 ingredients.

And, it is the perfect consistency for dipping.

Crock Pot Caramel Dip

I found the original inspiration for this Crock Pot Caramel Dip in Gooseberry Patch’s Slow-Cooker Recipes Cookbook. Ellie Brandel’s recipe for Caramel-Rum Fondue got me thinking that I could totally cRock the Pot with some killer caramel dip!

So I altered the recipe just a tad to omit the rum… but feel free to add it in if you’d like. I also used a bag of easy to melt caramel bits rather than 25 caramels. I LOVE those caramel bits. Ready to melt and no unwrapping!

The result was the PERFECT Crock Pot Caramel Dip if I do say so myself!

Note: This recipe for Crock Pot Caramel Dip is best for a 2-3 qt slow cooker, if you have a bigger model, you may want to double the recipe.

Running Late on Time?

If you are like me, I don’t always remember to get cRockin’ on time. The great news is that this recipe can be prepared in microwave and then kept warm in slow cooker if running low on time.

All you do is place the caramels and cream in the crock and cook on high in microwave for 3 minutes or until caramels begin to melt when stirred. Once the caramels melt, add in marshmallows heating in 30 second intervals until stirs creamy.
