Use up those leftover fun-sized Halloween candy Bars and turn them into Snickers Caramel Apple Dip! A fun and easy dessert for fall!!

I know it’s still September, but I’ve got candy on the brain and this dip recipe would be a great way to use up Halloween candy next month.  But you can make it any time of the year – I made it for a dip party!  What better time to talk about candy than the fall?  I have to admit that I’m not huge on chocolate candy.  I know, I have issues.  I prefer things like sour patch kids, chewy sprees, and skittles.  But one of the few chocolate candies that is a weakness of mine is Snickers.

Snickers are one of my absolute favorite candy bars and I knew I had to make a dip with them.  I’m pretty positive that you could use any other chocolate-based candy bar in place of the Snickers that you like – Heath bars, Kit-Kats, Milky Way bars (especially if you are allergic to peanuts, these would be a great substitute).  Get creative!

This was delicious, but just to warn you, it made a HUGE amount of dip.  I took it to the dip party, as I said before, and as we put a good dent in it, I had half of it leftover.  If it’s for a SMALL get-together (10 or so people), I’d recommend halving the recipe.

This would be perfect for a birthday or holiday party, baby shower, you name it! If you’re wondering what else you can serve this with besides the sliced apples like I did, pretzels, Ritz crackers or animal crackers would also be great.  I tried to go the “healthy” route with the apples (ha ha).  This isn’t a dip you want to eat frequently, but I’m a firm believer in “everything in moderation” and eating the bad stuff once in a while.  Enjoy!
