Caramel Apple Dip

The Kids' Table
Chicago, IL

Autumn

Makes 2 Servings
Ingredients
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 Tbsp Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp molasses
  • 1 Tbsp + 1 tsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch allspice
  • 1 pinch ground ginger
  • 1 medium apple, cored and sliced (we used Jona-Prince Apples from Nichols Farm and Orchard)
  • 1-2 Tbsp crushed roasted, salted Pepitas (pumpkin seeds)*
Directions
In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, yogurt, molasses, sugar and vanilla. Stir until creamy and smooth (this can take a little time and muscle, so be patient).  Mix in spices. Taste dip for flavor. Feel free to add in a few sprinkles more of any of the spices to suit your taste. Set aside.  
Coat half of each apple slice in creamy caramel dip. Roll dipped half in crushed Pepitas*. Enjoy!
*Crush them up! You can crush the Pepitas with a mortar and pestle, or even chop them with a chef knife. But we've found that kids have the most fun crushing them with a small rolling pin. Just be sure to place them in a seal-able plastic bag with the air removed so the bag doesn't pop. And crush away!
