Fall is officially here! It's my favorite time of year. The cooler temps are very much welcome around here! I also love all the fall flavors! Caramel apple is always a winner in my book.
This creamy caramel dip is a great snack/treat that's pretty macro balanced ( 1 serving = Cal 127 C 9.2g F 6.4g P 8g). I kind of think it tastes like cake batter! It's so yummy with pretzels (hello, sweet and salty). Dip your fruit in it (apples, grapes, strawberries), dip pretzels or whatever else you can dream OR spread it on a bagel, rice cake….or eat it with a spoon! 🙂
I hope you enjoy this fun fall treat! My kids ate half the bowl when they came home from school! It's a winner for everyone.

PRO TIP: Serving size is 1/8 of the recipe. Since many factors can affect the weight of your recipe, you can weigh the prepared recipe in grams and subtract the weight of the dish and divide that by 8 (servings) to see how many grams one serving is. Create your own recipe if you'd like, I used Muscletech vanilla protein powder (nutrition C 9g F 2g P 20g). If your protein powder nutrition varies a lot, feel free to log your own recipe in MFP.
