This easy to make, over the top Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip will have everyone coming back for seconds! The perfect dessert or appetizer for fall!
I’m seriously into dips right now. Like MADLY into dips. I went to Apple Hill this past weekend and bought alltheapples. And now, naturally, I am making allthedips to dip them in. This one is the best so far.
So here’s the thing. Up until a few weeks ago the thought of pumpkin and apple together seriously grossed me out. Like, YUCK. And then I made this Skinny Pumpkin Dip and I was like OMG this is GOOD! So now I want everything to be pumpkin + apple.
But then there’s my long standing love affair with all things caramel apple. Caramel Apple Empanadas, Caramel Apple Shakes, Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls, Caramel Apple Monkey Bread, and the list goes on…and on…and…you get the idea.
So I combined them into this ridiculous dip which is going to rock.your.world. Pinky promise.
I am a firm believer in equitable distribution of assets, in this case – caramel. I poured some into the bottom of the bowl, layered it in between the pumpkin cheesecake and then drizzled it all over the top. Why? Cause you need a little bit of caramel with every bit of this dip, obvi. There’s delight in every bite!
And this is not just your ordinary caramel sauce – NO – this is pumpkin spice caramel because duh, pumpkin all the things, remember?
Let me just take a moment to talk about the caramel because it turned out to be my favorite part of this dip. I melted caramels and Pumpkin Spice creamer together to create this awesomeness. The fragrance alone was inspiring…on top of the pumpkin cheesecake…heavenly. I can’t swear that any more than three quarters of the caramel actually made it to the dip, I was so busy testing it to make sure it was just PERFECT, ya know, the crazy things I do for YOU 🙂
The good news here is this dip is worthy of the apples my boys worked so hard at picking. Graham crackers, nilla wafers, marshmallows, and any other fruit would also make great dippers here – use your imagination!
