Apples and caramel together for a fun dip for the holidays.


  • 5 cups peeled and diced apples, (about 5 apples)
  • 12.25 oz. jar caramel sauce (I use Smucker’s glass jar ice cream topping, regular or salted caramel)
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 Tbsp. water

For the crust dippers:

  • 14 oz. pkg. refrigerated pie dough
  • 1/8 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon


  • Add the apples, caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a 3 quart or larger slow cooker. In a small bowl mix together the cornstarch and water, add to the slow cooker.
  • Stir everything until combined.
  • Cover, and cook on HIGH for 2 hours. Stirring once or twice during those 2 hours.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cinnamon and sugar.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Spread out one pie crust at a time onto a baking sheet. Using a pastry brush, spread on the milk. Sprinkle half of the cinnamon sugar mixture onto the pie crusts.
  • Using a pizza cutter or knife cut the pie crusts into serving strips.
  • Spread out the strips on the baking sheet so they don’t bake together.
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Repeat with other pie crust.
  • Serve and enjoy.

    Mine came out super runny-huge bummer

  2. Chrissy says:

    Town House has cinnamon sugar pita chips available this time of year, think I am going to try those, but will have cinnamon graham crackers on back up! So excited to try this recipe!!

  3. Sarah @ Sezen Your Life says:

    Made this for a gathering last weekend. Sooo delicious, everyone loved it! I did add several extra cups of apples, and ginger and cloves; gave it more of a mulled cider taste. I used a cookie cutter on the pie crust to make cute little leaves too. This is one of my new favorites! Thank you!

  4. robin says:

    I am thinking of using cinnamon gram crackers instead of the pie dough strips

  5. Kelsey says:

    Whatever you do, don’t overheat it – I came back after 2 hours and the caramel had completely separated to give a watery, clumpy sugar that the apples were just floating in…not good.

  6. Renee Drew says:

    I have directions to make caramel sauce by heating a can of sweetened condensed milk in a slow cooker. Haven’t tried it yet. (Almost afraid I’d eat the whole can myself! LOL) I also found directions online to make my own sweetened condensed milk.

    I made some homemade caramel but it got thinner after apples cooked. Solution: I added Clear Jel a teaspoon at a time until I got the desired consistency. I also cooked my pie crust in custard cups which made the perfect sized personal pies served hot and ala mode w/ a nice crispy flaky crust.

  8. Risa says:

    This Would be good using cinnamon tortilla chips, soft tortillas, dip in melted butter, sprinkle cinnamon sugar on them then bake till crisp. Cut with a pizza cutter into 8 pieces.

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      That sounds delicious Risa!

  9. Jennifer says:

    Is it ok to bake the pie crust first and then let sit out for s few hours before I serve it?

    1. Sarah Olson says:

      Yes! A few hours would be fine, but overnight they get soggy. 🙂

  10. Trish says:

    Could you use caramel candy squares to put in instead of the jar stuff?
