"This was a childhood memory that I was craving, so I called my nanny and she gave the recipe to me. The second I tasted it, I was flushed with happy thoughts. It tastes like caramel! Enjoy with slices of apples for a healthy snack! Be creative: You can add peanut butter, nuts or chocolate sauce, or try using strawberry flavored cream cheese. Have fun and enjoy!" — Rachel

Was a great hit!! Remember, if you cut the apples before hand, you can leave them in water and lemon juice to keep from turning brown!
Found it kind of bland. Was just o.k. Won't make it again.
This took less than five minutes to prepare, and it was delicious! It was lighter tasting than the typical caramel dip you purchase at the store, and a little sweeter than yogurt-based fruit dips. It is a keeper in my book!
I did keep the cream cheese out for over an hour to soften before I mixed it, and I'm sure this helped a lot. I wouldn't try mixing it until the cream cheese is quite soft, either from setting out or from microwaving it for a short time.
This dip is great! I used an electric mixer to beat it, i made it 2 times in a couple of days and I loved the taste but the consistency was very clumpy and chewy, so the third time I made it I softened the cream cheese and I whipped it until it was like thick whipped cream. It filled up with air and was so much more light and fluffy.(beat at the highest speed your mixer will go).
It was so much better!
Loved this-served with apple slices and graham crackers and it was a huge hit.
Growing up, if I wanted an apple, all I got was an apple...Not even any peanut butter. This dip was a little sweeter than I had expected but it went well with the tart granny smith apples that I love. My husband does not eat sweets and even he spent a good half hour hovering over the bowl. Excellent! Will make again.
Very Yummy! I do recommend that you bring your cream cheese to room temp. so that it is easier to mix your sugar and vanilla in smoothly. Very good on bagles and would be a nice christmas gift in a pretty jar for your favorite of neighbors!
Excellent. We served with Granny Smith Apples, like others suggested. We also ate it with bananas. Both were equally yummy. Next time I may serve with a variety of apples, and bananas. I made it with regular cream cheese, and I am sure low fat would not alter the taste one bit. I am trying it next. A dash of cinnamon may also be good in it. I will also try it with grahmn crackers.
