I love entertaining people in my home.  The bigger the crowd, the better.  I guess that could also explain why I have six kids instead of two….
Caramel Apple Dip

A caramel apple dip buffet is a fun excuse to have a crowd over this fall.   The caramel is super easy to bring together, then just get out all your favorite toppings.  My favorite?  I double dip into both the M&M’s and the peanuts.  Heaven!

Caramel Apple Dip

I’m going request that you are quite picky with your apple selection with this fun treat.  These are the famous Minnesota Honeycrisp apples.  If you have never had one, you are missing out on apple nirvana.

If you don’t have any Honeycrisp available in your area, I have also used Granny Smith and Fuji.  Because the caramel and toppings are so sweet, you should have an apple that has some tartness to it.  Makes a perfect balance when you do.

So if you’ve been looking for the perfect excuse to have people over this fall weekend, you’ve found it. Be warned though.  Word will quickly spread about how awesome you are and perfect strangers will come knocking on your door in search of this delicatable fall tradition 🙂

Perfect fall dessert recipe when the apples are tart and the weather is cool!

  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 4 cups 1x


  • 1 C light corn syrup
  • 1 lb light brown sugar (about 2 1/4 C)
  • 1/2 C butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/21 teaspoon kosher salt


  1. In a medium saucepan, stir together the corn syrup and brown sugar.
  2. Over medium-high heat, bring it to a boil, stirring occasionally. Once it comes to a full boil, allow to boil for 3 minutes.
  3. Add the butter, vanilla, sweetened condensed milk, and salt.  Stir well and continue to stir until it comes back to a boil.  Once it does, remove from the heat.  Serve with your favorite toppings to dip into:  peanuts, pecans, walnuts, mini M&M’s, marshmallows, candy corn, coconut, toffee pieces.
  4. To reheat the caramel, just microwave it until it thins out some.  The time depends on the amount of caramel you are reheating.  Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator up to 2 weeks.


The amount of salt will depend on personal preference. Add the 1/2 and taste it to see if you want more.

can we use maple syrup instead ?i cant find corn syrup anywhere.

11 years ago

Nope! Completely different product with a completely different purpose. The corn syrup keeps the caramel from getting gritty.

Thanks for your recipe. I am going to use it for a bridal shower. Would it work to keep it warm in a crock pot?

Hey Krystal! That would be perfect as long as you keep it on warm. Have a great shower!
