I made this dip in my classroom with my preschool children. It was easy and they loved it. They each ate more apples than I have ever seen them eat!!!!

We've tried a great many fruit dips over the years, but this one is by far the simplest & absolutely delicious! I'm not ashamed to say that DD & I ate dessert for breakfast this morning! :) It's amazing how much it tastes like a caramel apple (which we also made recently), without the time involved or the tooth-sticky mess. I'll be making this again & again. I used Mexican vanilla and dark brown sugar, then allowed the cream cheese to soften & just mixed everything very easily with a hand mixer. Thanks for posting, Pear! Made & enjoyed for the Photo Forum's National Dessert Month & the Spain & Portugal Forum's Cooking with Apples event.

I love this dip - so simple and delicious. I only use half the sugar, though, and it is still very sweet. I let the cream cheese come to room temperature before mixing by hand - then I don't have to clean a food processor.

This is just wonderful and the kids love it. DD wanted 'caramel' dip, so this is what I made ~ she didn't really know any different. Made for LET'S P-A-R-T-Y December Cooking Tag, December 2009!

Delicious! I think just a half-cup of brown sugar makes it sweet enough, though.

I've made this for years. I always mix it by hand (let the cream cheese soften at room temp). Good topped with chopped peanuts. Tastes remarkably like caramel dip, but creamier. YUM!

Awesome dip, easiest I've tried. Around our house it gets eaten faster than store-bought carmel dip.

This is a great dip! Even better though when you add caramel sauce and crushed Skor or Heath bars to the top! It's great with apples, cheese and pretzels....believe it or not! Thanks for posting!

I make this exact apple dip with the exception that it calls for 3/4 c. brown sugar and 1/4 c. white sugar. Always well received and most people don't guess that it has cream cheese in it.

What a yummy way to eat apples! This goes together very quickly with few ingredients. I knew that it would be good, because anything with cream cheese in it has to be good...right? My family enjoyed it and I will be making this again. Thanks for sharing.
