I love this yummy dip. It reminds me of all things fall, so I’m posting it today in honor of our first day of school which also reminds me of fall (even though technically it’s still summer!). I usually serve it with cut up apples and bananas, but you could experiment with other fruits as well as pretzels and various types of cookies (I bet Ginger Snaps would be awesome). It’s normal for small bits of caramel to never quite get mixed in. Think of those as hidden treasures.
1 8-oz. pkg cream cheese, softened
1 cup sour cream
50 store-bought caramels, unwrapped
1. In a mixer, blend the cream cheese and sour cream together until smooth.
2. Melt caramels in a microwave safe bowl.
3. Immediately pour caramel into creamed mixture and blend well until smooth.
4. Eat right away or store in the fridge. You may need to warm it a bit in the microwave if it is too stiff from refrigeration.
