Nothing says summertime like a fresh baked apple pie. Of course, turning on the oven in the middle of a heat wave is never pleasant. This apple pie dip is just as American as can be, with all of the flavors you love in a pie, and it’s loaded with chopped-up candy bars just for fun. The extra drizzle of caramel sauce on top gets everyone excited to dive in.
I always have the ingredients for this on hand for unexpected guests. The recipe comes together in just one mixing bowl and about 5 minutes of time. There’s no wait time involved, which means that you can be dipping to your heart’s content in a manner of minutes.
For this recipe, you’ll need: apple pie filling from a can, instant vanilla pudding, refrigerated whipped topping, caramel sauce for drizzling, milk, and Snickers candy bars. I like to buy a package of the bite-sized snickers because there are fewer wrappers to deal with.
I like to run my knife through the apple pie filling since it tends to come as big slices of apples. I prefer bite-sized chunks in this recipe. Once you have the filling chopped up, add that to the bowl.
Here’s what takes the whole recipe over the top: Snickers bars! Chop them up so they’re nice and small. If you’re looking for a nut-free option, Milky Way bars would work just as well.
Once you add your candy bars to the bowl, give everything a good stir. That’s it! You’re ready to get your dip on. Drizzle with the caramel sauce and prepare to see your dip disappear in a matter of minutes.
I like to serve the dip with freshly cut apple slices and vanilla wafers, but graham crackers are pretty divine too!
