Ingredients for Brown Sugar Apple Dip
There are only 3 simple ingredients needed and it all comes together in just 5 minutes. Here is your ingredients list:
- Cream Cheese – the block style cream cheese is preferred, not the whipped spread, and it’s important that it’s at room temperature so it mixes easily with the sugar and vanilla
- Brown Sugar – adds all the sweetness and balances the tanginess of the cream cheese
- Vanilla – adds delicious flavor
The measurements for each of the ingredients can be found in the recipe card down below.
What Kind of Apples are the Best?
My favorite apple for dipping will forever and always be Honeycrisp apples. Braeburn, Envy, or Pink Lady apples are also super delicious. If you like your apples to be a little more tart, go for Granny Smith. They actually pair with the sweet brown sugar dip brilliantly.
Can I Use Low Fat Cream Cheese?
Yes, the low fat cream cheese works great, but I would avoid the fat free cream cheese.
How Long Will Apples Keep?
If stored properly, apples should keep for 2 months. Apples should be kept in the refrigerator.
Are Apples Healthy?
Apples are packed with antioxidants, flavonoids, and dietary fiber. The antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
Apples do contain a fair amount of carbs. A 3″ diameter apple has about 25 carbs.
How to Keep Apple Slices from Turning Brown
Using sliced apples can be a little tricky because they brown so quickly, and then they are a little less appetizing. This is especially the case when you want to have sliced apples out at a party or gathering. I have a solution for you! Citric acid!
Before serving the sliced apples, soak them in a water and citric acid. Citric acid can be found in lemon juice, orange juice or pineapple juice. For every 1 cup of water you use, add 1 tablespoon of your citric acid source.
All of the apples should be covered with the water. Let them soak for about 5 minutes. Remove them from the water and let them drain. You can even pat them dry a little. This will help keep them looking fresh for at least a few hours.
What Can I Dip in Brown Sugar Apple Dip?
You don’t need to limit yourself to just apples! The apples are heaven in this dip, but there are all kinds of options. Here are some ideas:
- Graham Crackers
- Other Fruit (strawberries, bananas, pineapple, etc.)
- Animal Crackers
As long as we are talking about mixing things up, you can also mix in some toffee bits to add a little crunch and even more caramel flavor.
