Easy Apple Dips

by North Metro Woman

We know you’re busy readers, but making a great apple-tizer doesn’t have to take time.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a Pink Lady, Granny Smith, Gala, or  Honeycrisp fan, they are all in season right now and they ALL taste amazing when set on a plate with these yummy and oh so easy dips.

Here are three yummy and super simple recipes for an amazing apple dip for your fall or Halloween party:

Sea Salt Caramel w/Toffee Bits

  • Apples (of your choice)
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 jar of Stonewall Kitchen Sea Salt Caramel Sauce
  • Your Favorite toffee candy

That’s all you need!

You can certainly make your own caramel, but sometimes you may be pressed for time and this sauce is to die for!

  • Cut your favorite apples into large slices and brush with a little bit of lemon juice to prevent browning.
  • Spear slices with popsicle sticks and place on a festive plate.
  • Spoon the sauce into a cute little bowl and set in the middle.
  • Crush toffee bits and place in another bowl and display with a small decorative spoon for scooping.  You can also use crushed nuts  if you’re not worried about allergies.

That’s it!  Guests can dip their apples with as little or as much of each topping that they prefer.   It’s that simple.

Dipped apple recipes - North Metro Woman

White Chocolate Ginger Cookie (pre-dipped apples)

  • Apples
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 box Ghiradelli White Chocolate Melting Wafers
  • 1 package of Biscoff Cookies

Brush sliced apples with a little bit of lemon juice to keep them looking pretty.

Melt the white chocolate in a double broiler stirring often until smooth.  Remove chocolate from heat and dip the apples.  Before the dip cools, sprinkle the dipped apples with  crushed cookie bits. Set dipped apples on parchment  and place in fridge to cool. Display on pretty plate when cooled.

What makes these dips so wonderful is that they are easy, but taste like they took a long time to make!

Sometimes a higher end, or not so common main ingredient, makes all the difference like the ginger flavor in the cookies – it adds some crunchy zing to the creamy white chocolate.  Biscoff can be found at World Market in Thornton.

Hot Chocolate Coconut Bliss

  • Apples
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 package Callabaut Finest Belgian Dark Chocolate
  • 1 bag of shaved coconut flakes

Melt the dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for one minute, stir, and then continue for short 10-15 second intervals stirring often until smooth.

Remove chocolate from heat and dip the apples.  Before the dip cools, sprinkle the dipped apples with coconut flakes.

Set dipped apples on parchment  and place in fridge to cool.  Serve on a festive serving platter.   Callebaut chocolate can be found at Louisville or Broomfield’s  Whole Foods.
