Can Smuckers Caramel Topping be used, or do you recommend a thicker sauce?
That should work just fine. Everything is blended together, and the cream cheese provides most of the texture/consistency.
You make cookies but don’t know a ‘sub’ for cool-whip?! The recipe does not state container size, cool-whip comes in many. I will use regular non-modified products
Very yummy, for my family I went full flavor and full fat, and I didn’t have cool Whip so I made up my own using 1/2 cup of cream with a splash of vanilla. I also chopped my white chocolate coarsely and my husband and boys couldn’t get enough.
Omg that sounds super yummy!! I’m glad you loved it so much!
I was very interested until I saw the number of artificial ingredients and artificial sugars. it may be low CAL but definitely not healthy .
Hi Laura, it’s just meant to be a lightened up version of traditional caramel apple dip. Hope you have a great weekend!

If I make this the night before serving it will the texture be off? I am excited to try the recipe but am looking for any way to save myself time the day I’m hosting! Thanks!
I have never tried it in advance but I think it would be fine. Just stir it up quickly before serving. Not 100% sure but 99% sure :)
