Caramel Fruit Dip

This creamy and sweet fruit dip is perfect for your favorite fall fruit!

Creamy and smooth caramel flavored fruit dip.

Five Reasons why I am NOT a cool mom:

1.  I have lost interest in swimming.  In fact I prefer to stay out of the water entirely.

2. One game of tag is fun, any more is not.

3. I yell, enforce bedtimes and insist the kids clean their rooms on a weekly basis.

4. I do not like dressing up for Halloween.

5.  I serve Brussels sprouts

Caramel flavored fruit dip is easy to make and tastes perfect with your favorite fall fruit.

 Five reasons why I AM a cool mom:

1. I can still do handstands, cartwheels and pirouettes.

2. I love dance parties and family game night.

3. I always have open arms, open ears, kisses and encouragement.

4.  I love playing fun pranks for April Fools.

5. I make desserts…lots of desserts.

Caramel flavored fruit dip perfect for apples and pears!

After today, I can officially add a 6th reason to my cool mom list.  I made this creamy caramel fruit dip.  Fruit is certainly good enough on its own, but dips make eating food more fun, even fruit!  Sometimes it’s ok to spruce up fruit and this dip makes the kids feel like they are eating dessert!  And therein lies the crux of what makes me cool….making plain fruit feel like dessert!   I do believe this cancels out the brussel sprouts!

A fall inspired fruit dip that is so easy to put together!

  1. You are a very cool mom exactly for the reason of making this caramel apple fruit dip! And many other reasons! I had such a fabulous time with you while we were in Cleveland! Hope to see you soon!

    • It was a pleasure getting to know you Lisa! Thank you!

  2. I think you are a very cool mom Tanya!! My mom never made us treats, or desserts, or had dance parties. :)

    • We didn’t have dance parties growing up either, guess I’m making up for lost time!

  3. Our apple tree is ready for picking and I know I’m making :-) Pinning and the picture is gorgeous!

  4. Awwww you ARE a cool mom! Except dressing up for Halloween is awesome and I’m totally gonna talk you into it :) This dip is AMAZING. I a so obsessed with all things caramel lately it’s crazy. And I think I have all this stuff! You are the coolest.

  5. I happen to think any mom that can still do pirouettes is way cool, but I’m biased 😉

    Love this dip!

  6. YUM!! I can’t wait to try this! I found you through the What’s Shakin’ link party, and now I can’t wait to explore the rest of your blog!

  7. You’re a totally FUN mom!!! I can’t wait to make this for my kids, Tanya!

  8. This would work on so many levels, Tanya. It’s a great dip that would encourage kids to eat more fruit. It would be great for after school snack time. The fact that it lessens the impact of your Brussels sprouts is icing on the cake. :)

  9. Ooh, this looks really good, Tanya! I need something to take to my little one’s preschool Halloween party, and I think this might be it! (P.S. I’m SO not a cool mom!)

  10. Yum! I love all kinds of dips, that’s how I get my kids to eat anything healthy!

  11. Overall I think you sound like a pretty rockin’ Mom! I’ve never been able to do a cartwheel or handstand…ya I’m lame! I’d bathe my fruit in this dip!

    • Thanks Julie! I’m thinking you are on the path to cool mom!

  12. This looks really good! I’ve never made a caramel fruit dip with pudding. Can’t wait to try it!

    • It was so good and so easy! Thanks Stephanie!

  13. I love fruit dip and this one looks wonderful! Love that you use pudding mix in it too. Your reasons for being a cool/not cool mom are so fun too!

  14. You are definitely cooler than I am…I thought we were on the same level until I saw you can do a handstand, cartwheel, and pirouette. WAY beyond me :) This fruit dip, though? This I could replicate…and I would definitely be a cool mom. Looks delicious!

    • Haha, Cathy, something tells me you are a very cool, fun mom!
