Whip up the yummiest caramel apple dip in just minutes. Perfect for entertaining and gift-giving…teachers, friends, and more. But make sure to keep a jar or two for yourself!
Caramel apple dip is absolutely one of the best things about fall. It’s so super quick and easy to make, and SO yummy. It’s definitely one of our family’s tried and true recipes, and I make it often. In fact, I can’t make it fast enough! I love to give it as gifts all through the fall and holiday season.
One of the first opportunities I have to give it away is when school starts. We have a tradition of giving an apple to the teachers on the first day of school, and I’ve done several different things, but this caramel apple dip is a huge favorite.

Caramel Apple Dip Gift Idea
I always use mason jars…they’re the cutest, and refrigerate well. (Pint jars are the ones I use most, but I also love these wide mouth half pint jars!)To give it an adorable apple theme, I use red gingham fabric on top, then tie on a green cardstock leaf with a little jute.
It’s such a quick and easy gift, but just SO darling! Perfect for teachers, but also friends, neighbors, and more. And even if you don’t package it up in red gingham fabric–it’s the yummiest to enjoy in your own home. I also love serving it at fall and holiday parties or gatherings…it’s always a hit.
