Cinnamon Caramel Apple Dip only takes a few minutes to make and is made with ingredients that I always keep on hand.

Cinnamon Caramel Apple Dip is made with only 3 ingredients - sweetened condensed milk, butterscotch chips and lots of cinnamon! This easy caramel apple dip recipe is easy and delicious!

I have made a lot of different caramel apple dip recipes, but this one is my favorite. It’s one of the easier ones to make and the consistency is perfect. There is a pretty strong cinnamon flavor, which I love, but you can definitely reduce the amount of cinnamon in the recipe if you prefer. You can even leave the cinnamon out completely if you aren’t a cinnamon fan, and the dip is still delicious!

Ingredients in Cinnamon Caramel Apple Dip

  • 1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup butterscotch chips
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon

How to make Cinnamon Caramel Apple Dip

Place all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring until the butterscotch chips have completely melted. (This takes a few minutes for the butterscotch chips to completely melt – they will mostly melt very quickly, but if there are still a lot of butterscotch chunks, just keep stirring! They have to get pretty hot to completely melt, but they will get there, I promise!)

Remove from heat and serve immediately with sliced apples. Refrigerate any leftovers and then reheat the dip in the microwave or on the stovetop to use again.

What types of apples go best with caramel dip?

I prefer sweet and crunchy apples and usually buy Honeycrisp or Fuji apples to use with caramel apple dip. If you have never tried a Honeycrisp apple, you need to get some the next time you are the grocery store. And I’m apologizing in advance, because once you try a Honeycrisp apple, you may never be completely satisfied with any other type of apple again! I first tried Honeycrisp apples a few years ago, and I have a hard time enjoying other varieties now – they are soooo good!

I usually don’t like green apples because they are so tart, but I do like them with caramel, so that is another good option for dipping in this caramel dip. Basically any type of apple will taste even better when you dip it in caramel, so use whatever kind you like!

Can you make caramel apple dip in the microwave?

You can easily make caramel apple dip in the microwave. I usually just make this dip on the stovetop because it is very quick and easy to do, but you can definitely make it in the microwave instead.

To make caramel apple dip in the microwave, place the butterscotch chips, sweetened condensed milk and cinnamon in a large microwaveable bowl. Heat in 60-second intervals, stirring in between each interval, until the mixture is smooth and the butterscotch chips are completely melted.

How to Make Apple Spice Bundt Cake

Preheat your oven to 350ºF. Prepare pan by spraying with cooking spray or greasing with butter.

In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer cream together the butter, sugar and eggs until smooth. In a separate mixing bowl combine the flour, spices, soda and salt. Whisk the dry ingredients until well blended.

Add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter and sugar one cup at a time until well incorporated. To this mixture add in the applesauce and mix on medium until all the applesauce is blended into the cake batter.

Peel and slice the apple into small, bite sized pieces. Try to slice the apples into pieces that are equally sized so they will all cook through. Fold the apple slices into the apple spice cake batter.

For the pecan pieces, you can buy pieces that have already been chopped or, if you are using whole pecans, slice them into small pieces using a sharp knife. Fold into the batter.

pouring apple spice cake batter into a bundt pan

Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan. If you do not have a bundt pan, this cake can be made in a 9 x 13 inch baking dish.

Place the cake in the preheated oven and bake for 45-50 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.

When the cake is done cooking, place a plate over the top of the bundt pan and turn it upside down to remove the cake from the pan.

Drizzle with warm Caramel Sauce.

How to Make Homemade Caramel Glaze

The caramel glaze is simple to make and only takes a few simple ingredients. You can make the sauce while the cake is baking in the oven so it is ready to drizzle on the warm cake.

To make the Caramel Sauce you will need:

  • butter
  • sweetened condensed milk
  • heavy cream
  • vanilla

In a saucepan, melt the butter and add the sweetened condensed milk and cream. Bring to a boil and continue to boil for 3-5 minutes, until the sauce has turned a golden brown color. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. With a spoon, drizzle the caramel sauce over the top of the Apple Bundt Cake.

What type of Apples are best for Apple Bundt Cake?

For this Apple Cake recipe you can really use any type of apples that you prefer. For this recipe, I used Gala Apples. I think that add a little bit of sweetness to this cake.

Other varieties that would work good in this recipe are: Honey Crisp, Granny Smith, Jonagold or Fuji. Just be sure you are not using mushy or soft apples, you want apples that are firm for this recipe because they will soften when cooked.

Can you freeze Pumpkin Bars?

Yes, these pumpkin bars freeze really well! Just bake, cool and ice the bars, then let the icing set. Slice into squares and store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to 1 month. Bars can be made ahead and frozen, then served later on. Just separate layers with parchment paper and try not to squish them!
