When my kids would little I would do anything to get them to eat more fruits and vegetables. I would serve their broccoli with ranch dressing or cheese sauce and I would peel their apple slices and serve them with peanut butter.
I would do anything to get them to eat!
Once I got the kids used to the fruit and veggies I wanted them to consume then it was a delicate process of weaning them off of that ranch dressing or eating apples with the skins on. It always happened, it would just take time and patience.
I’m sure my kids would have loved eating their apples every day with this caramel apple dip recipe. It really does make apples taste like dessert!

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!
Aimee @ ShugarySweets says
You ARE a cool mom. Love your lists (and the dip!)
Nancy P.@thebittersideofsweet says

Lisa@ Cooking with Curls says
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!
Our apple tree is ready for picking and I know I’m making 🙂 Pinning and the picture is gorgeous!
Thank you Deb!
Heather @ Sugar Dish Me says
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.
Awe, thank you Heather!
I happen to think any mom that can still do pirouettes is way cool, but I’m biased 😉
Love this dip!
Kelsey @ Tomorrow Is Another DIY says
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!
Jen Nikolaus says
You’re a totally FUN mom!!! I can’t wait to make this for my kids, Tanya!
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. 🙂
The Weary Chef says
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!)
This looks absolutely deee-lish! Would love to have you share at our Super Saturday Link Party!
Yum! I love all kinds of dips, that’s how I get my kids to eat anything healthy!
Julie Evink says
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!
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!
Stephanie @ Macaroni and Cheesecake says
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!
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!
