Caramel Cheesecake Dip

Caramel. Apples. Cheesecake. Peanuts. ♥

This Caramel Cheesecake Dip is ridiculously easy  to make and is the perfect last minute dip to bring to a party. It’s sweet, creamy, and caramel-y with an extra crunch from the salted caramel peanuts that everyone loves.

And with football season starting in a couple weeks {GO PACKERS GO}, I will be making this delicious Caramel Cheesecake Dip a lot for our Green Bay Packer parties this year. Enjoy!

Caramel Cheesecake Dip

JUST A FEW BAKING TIPS:

✓ CHILLED CREAM CHEESE: You want your cream cheese to be soft enough to beat until smooth & creamy but you also want it to be semi-chilled if your planning on serving the dip right away. So what I like to do about 30 minutes before I’m ready to make this dip, I remove the two cream cheese packages from the fridge & place them onto the kitchen counter, this way they will be slightly soft but still be chilled.

ADD SOME CRUNCH: I like to add some “crunch” to this caramel cheesecake dip. I used Planters Salted Caramel Peanuts which are AMAZING in this dip. But you could use regular salted peanuts or if you don’t like peanuts you could add chocolate chips instead!

 SERVE: Serve this dip with your favorite kind of apples or cinnamon sugar graham crackers are excellent too!
