Heath Bar Apple Dip Recipe

 

heath bar apple dip recipe #apples

October is National Apple Month so I decided to post this recipe that I discovered on the back of a Heath bag about 10 years ago. This recipe is easy to make, tastes delicious and will help you use any apples that you have left over from apple picking.

According to livestrong.com:

Apples contain significant amounts of flavonoids, phytochemicals found in plants that help protect cells from damage, reducing your risk for heart disease, cancer and other serious health problems. Quercetin, one of the flavonoids found in apples, may reduce your risk for stomach, prostate, ovarian and breast cancers.

 I guess Ben Franklin was correct when he coined the phrase “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. 🙂

    I love this dip! It is my favorite fruit dip by far! Only question.. I had this at a party for the first time and that is how I discovered it. It was creamy too, so you didn’t have to fight it to get it on the apple. When I made it, it wasn’t creamy at all. I asked her what she used and she replied “Sorry, but I don’t share my recipes”… So now I am here. How can I make this creamier like it looks in the picture instead of a thick “peanut butter” like?

      Mandee—Wow! Someone wouldn’t share her recipe? I think it’s a huge compliment when someone asks me for my recipe.
      I found that the softer the cream cheese, and the more I whipped it, the smoother it became. I like mine smooth too =) Hope that helps!

    Def. saving this! As boring as it sounds, apples are my fav fruit – I love eating them as is (“horse munching” as my bf says), making apple related treats – tarts, pies, juices, pairing them with meat…this is great!

    i didn’t realize it was Apple pie month. I believe an apple a day keeps the doc away. It is also oral hygiene month but I still tend to bake mostly punpkin pie in October…

    I love eating apples because I know that they are good for me! I really like this recipe and am going to Pin it to Pinterest. I had some apples for a snack last night and I dipped them in caramel. I do not do this too often though because I do not want to turn a healthy apple into something unhealthy! But once in awhile it is okay to eat dessert!
