I originally wrote this Cream Cheese Apple Dip recipe in 2012 in preparation for babysitting my then 2 year old niece Desdi. Reading the post made me smile…reading about how she still loved the movie Frozen and was all sass and personality.

Actually she is still all sass and personality, but she has moved on from Frozen. She is in Kindergarten now and more into Jurassic Park. :) She still would love this Skinny Caramel Apple Dip!

        Hi! It's a bit different than canned whipped cream. here's a great tutorial on making it at home!http://www.somethingswanky.com/homemade-cool-whip/ Thanks for stopping by!
Linda
This is the best way to eat apples...yum...thanks!!
Krissy
Can't wait to try this one Becky! We have a trivia night coming up in September and I think this might be what I bring. I might just have to test it out a few times first ;)
    The Cookie Rookie
    That's awesome Krissy! I think it would be perfect for a trivia night :). Thanks for stopping by, we miss you guys!!
Sharla
This looks delicious! I have made a non-skinny version of this but this actually looks better and if it has less calories, then this would certainly be the way to go!
    The Cookie Rookie
    Thanks Sharla! It was yummy and you would never know its a slimmed down version!! I can't wait to see all the appetizers you post! My favorite food for sure!
Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com
Oh yum! This looks absolutely delicious!
Jean
Very good but very sweet! I didn't even add the chips or drizzle the caramel topping on top. It's yummy without!

Not sure how you can call this "SKINNY" caramel apple dip. Although it sounds amazing, when you actually add the calories and fat of all of the ingredients the calories per serving comes to 313 and fat is 14g with 49 carbs! That is not what I would consider a "SKINNY" food especially since the government food guidelines suggest 5 smalls meals consisting of 300-500 calories a day, this would be a meal, not a snack. I only bring this up because many people trying to lose weight will see that it is titled "SKINNY" and think that it is a low calorie snack and not think twice to check the calorie content of this recipe.
    Becky Hardin
    Hey there- I definitely appreciate your comment. This recipe is meant to be a slimmed down version of traditional Caramel Apple Dip. I tried to make substitutions that would lower the typical calories/fat. Very good points on people not checking the actual calories etc. I hope that someday soon I can find a good plugin that will add that info to the end of my recipes like on a food label. Thanks for stopping by!

      Walden Farms makes a delicious CALORIE FREE caramel sauce. If you used it and omitted the chips, calories would be minimal and fat would be zero. Yum!
    Kueckelhan Photography
    Good point on recipe not being totally "skinny." Any reduction from original is good idea. Any idea what recipe would be if omitted the wt. chocolate chips? Used fat free carmel sauce If you can find it?
    Jenn C.
    She meant it as a "less fattening recipe" and if people that are on a diet do not check the information before they eat, then that is their problem do not blame her she is just posting her recipe.

    Really?! I made it today using low fat cream cheese, regular old butterscotch caramel sauce, and fat free cool whip and 12 servings came out to be 184 calories, 5.5 g of fat, and 32 g of carbs. Not terrible and certainly much better than a regular version.
      Becky Hardin
      Glad you liked it Rachael! Yes it's definitely still a dessert dip, but just meant to be a bit healthier than the traditional version. Thanks for stopping by!
        Rachael
        Oh no, my comment was totally in support of the recipe as compared to the traditional Apple dips! And realistically, I got about 20 2 tbs servings so it's down to 110 calories, 3.3 g fat, 12.1 g sugar, and 19 carbs. Granted, I'm training and am allowed to have a ton of carbs, But again, I used reduced fat (not fat free) cream cheese (is that even a thing? Lol) and completely normal caramel sauce. If you swapped those out for sugar free and non fat this would have next to nothing in it.
          Becky Hardin
          No me too!!! Hahaha...I so appreciated your comment and it's awesome to have the nutritional info written out. Thank you SO much for breaking it down, truly! That's cool that you are training btw!
        Rachael
        You're welcome! All credit goes to the myfitnesspal app! All I was copy the link to the recipe in the app, scan the actual ingredients I used, and enter the number of servings. It calculated everything for me :). That would be a great way for you to include at least the macros for your recipes if you wanted that info readily available for your followers.
          Becky Hardin
          Yeah I have been thinking about doing that...I think it might be a great move! Glad to hear it's pretty easy. Thanks again!!!!
Amy
This looks delicious! Pinning to try soon. Looks like a great way to shave a few calories and fat grams off the traditional dips while preserving the great taste. Thanks for sharing!
Angela
This looks AMAZING, can't wait to try but nothing about this recipe makes it Skinny!
Dee
This was awesome! I made it tonight and it was a hit. Now I know what to take for pot luck.
