It’s back to school season and apples are definitely the symbol for school, teaching, and learning. So I’m super excited for today’s post. Not only do I have a yummy recipe for you today, I have a chance to introduce you to some of my good blogging friends! Let me introduce them to you!

Just for fun we decided to team up once a month and create projects based on a common theme. This month’s theme is APPLES. It was fun coming up with my project, but even more fun to see the creative projects the other ladies made. Check it out:
Okay, now aren’t you thoroughly amazed by their creativity too? You’ll find links to their projects at the bottom of the page along with a chance for you to link up your apple projects too.
Okay, now my goodie today is inspired by those super yummy caramel apples I LOVED as a kid. However, I find that caramel apples are messy and hard to eat so I prefer this taste combo in apples and dip form. Another flavor combo that I makes me think of fall is apples and cinnamon. So, what if we put all these items together? Sounds good, don’t you think?
Cinnamon Caramel Apple Dip
- 1 part unsalted butter (I used 1/3 cup)
- 1 part brown sugar, packed (I used 1/3 cup)
- 2 parts sweetened condensed milk (I used 2/3 cup)
- cinnamon (I used 2 tsp)
Add the sweetened condensed milk. Cook, stirring constantly, over low heat for approx. 20 minutes.
Once you can draw your spoon/spatula through the caramel and it doesn’t immediately flow back together, you know your dip is done. (Be careful not to over cook…your dip with thicken more as it cools. You want the consistency to be a bit runnier than what you’d like your dip to be.)
Serve it up with some apples and enjoy!
I hope you like this recipe. Take a look at the other amazing apple-inspired projects!
