With only three ingredients, peanut butter, Greek yogurt, and salted caramel, this delish peanut butter apple dip takes only a few minutes to whip up!

It’s that time of year! We’ve officially entered fall, which means it’s time for apple picking, apple pie, caramel apples, apple cider, aka all the apple things.

There’s nothing like biting into a fresh, crisp apple for a snack. But if you’re like me, you need something a little more substantial to pair the apple with to hold you over.

Peanut butter is a great go-to but what if I told you you could make a delicious creamy peanut buttery dip with salted caramel to sweeten the deal?!

If you love caramel apples and you love apples with peanut butter, this DIP IS FOR YOU!

The dip only calls for THREE ingredients so it’s super easy to whip up in just a couple minutes.

I suggest buying jarred salted caramel or making the caramel ahead of time as a time saver. But if you want to make the caramel by scratch, it only takes another 20 minutes by the time the caramel is cool enough to use.

Grab yer apples and when I dip, you dip, we dip.

Ingredients You’ll Need

heavy cream, Greek yogurt, peanut butter, apples, sugar, and butter laid out on countertop

Notes on Ingredients

Greek yogurt: I used 2% Plain for this recipe but you could use also use whole milk or 0% if you’d like, but my recommendation would be for whole or 2%.

Peanut butter: I used creamy, unsalted.

Salted caramel: If all you have is regular jarred caramel at home, add a pinch of sea salt to the dip

Apples: Use for favorite variety for snacking. I love gala, fuji, and honeycrisp!

How to Make Peanut Butter Apple Dip

This apple dip is SUPER easy to make with only three ingredients.

If you want to be able to make this dip in just a few minutes, I suggest using jarred caramel sauce. But if you want to make caramel from scratch, it only takes another three ingredients: sugar, butter, and heavy cream. It only takes about five minutes on the stovetop to make and then at least 15 minutes to cool.

For the caramel, you’ll heat the sugar in a saucepan over medium heat, whisking often, until sugar is completely melted. Whisk in butter until melted. Remove from heat and whisk in heavy cream. Add a few pinches of flaky sea salt for salted caramel.salted peanut in mason jar and ingredients for apple dip mixed in glass bowlThen to make the dip, simply stir together yogurt, peanut butter, and caramel until combined, smooth and creamy.

Drizzle with a little extra caramel over top because why not?! It is fall after all. 

Apple Dip FAQs

Can you use other types of fruit with this dip?

Of course! I like apples the best with this flavor profile but you could also use bananas, strawberries, grapes, pineapple, etc. 

What if I don’t want to use caramel?

You can leave it out but I’d use another sweetener instead, like agave or maple syrup, to balance out the flavors.

What if I don’t eat dairy/am vegan?

You can use a non dairy yogurt as a substitute.

How do you store this dip?

Store in the refrigerator, covered, for up to a week.

Can you use peanut butter powder instead?

Yes! You might want to try thinning it out with a splash of milk though.
