Raw caramel apple dip is where its at for a treat or a snack! Spiced with cinnamon, cloves and allspice, it tastes just like you’re eating an apple pie! Crispy tart Granny Smith Apples are all you need to slather your caramel on. Share if you want to, or don’t, it’s up to you! I had to fight my kids off so that I could get any, we were all licking the bowl clean on this one!
To make your no cook, raw caramel apple dip, I highly recommend using a food processor. Just like anything, investment is important when deciding to choose a food processor. Buying one super cheap can guarantee you a breakdown of the equipment rather quickly not to mention quality of output which can be frustrating. I have had the Cuisinart Food Processor for years and love it. I have also heard good things about the KitchenAid Food Processor. I can’t imagine living without one seeing that I use it almost daily for different recipes such as energy bars, nana “nice” cream, nut butters, hummus, shredding and chopping veggies, making raw cheesecake, homemade mayonnaise, oat flour, black bean brownies, pureeing soup and so much more. I know many people have a Vitamix or Blendtec blender but the food processor can do things that a blender cannot do. In an ideal world, one would have both.
So let’s get on with the recipe! This raw caramel apple dip only takes a few ingredients and a few minutes with your food processor to put this deliciousness together and you can adjust flavors to your taste. Also, if you wanted a pourable caramel just thin out this recipe with a little water so that you can drizzle on ice cream or other desserts!
