Liked this with apples, but really liked it on graham crackers topped with bananas!
I scaled this down to 6 caramels which gave me about 4 tbs worth of dip. After having tasted this divine concoction however I wish I had made more, much more. lol Its sooo creamy, sweet and addictive. YUM! I can see this used in many different ways: on top of ice-cream, swirled into a cake, layered into a trifle, used to fill thumb print cookies and so on. Its so easy to make and plain yummy, Ill make this again and again for sure.
All I had on hand was buttermilk so I used that and it was a nice contrast to the sweet caramel. My pb was all natural.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this winner with us, Paula! Made and reviewed for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap November 2011.
Made this dip for one or the monthly groups I host & it was great ~ Easy prep & tasty, too! I did chop the peanuts pretty well & then added them to the dip before setting it out! Sinfully delicious & definitely a keeper of a recipe! [Made & reviewed as a recipenap in the Aus/NZ Recipe Swap #36]
What an excellant recipe Paula. This quick and easy to make dip was great. It was rich, creamy, thick, sweet and very flavorful. Its lovely caramel texture was perfect served with empire and granny smith apple slices, chunks of bananas, large sweet strawberries and hazelnut cookies. I can't wait to try this dip with large marshmallows, pineapple wedges and ice cream. Thanks so much for sharing this wonderful treat.
I made this last night for Halloween! My kids love caramel dip with apples so I wanted to try this out on them to see how they would like the peanut butter.....it was great! What an easy recipe! Thanks! I will make again for sure. Oh, and I DID use a little lemon juice for the apples too.
This looks so good and appetizing! I would make only one suggestion for these apples, sprinkle them with lemon juice so they don't turn brown on you. Thank you for psoting, Diane
