Caramel-Peanut Butter Apple Dip

I think most of you are aware by now that I'm not a big fan of fruit. I rarely post fruit recipes and when I do, they're usually savory recipes that incorporate fruit as an afterthought. I think it's a genetic thing, like my hatred of cilantro because it tastes like soap and Moscato wine because it tastes like my grandma's rose garden bathroom air freshener, but regardless, my taste buds do not groove on fruits.

Why then am I displaying sliced Granny Smiths on parade? Well, I should think it would be obvious. They're about to be dipped into a caramel sauce and as far as I'm concerned, you could probably dip my hubby's sweaty gym shorts in caramel and I'd be all over that. Too much info? Let's move on.

This caramel, peanut butter apple dip is as easy as they come. Three ingredients and about thirty seconds and you're done. Except for the apple slicing, of course.

Caramel Peanut Butter Apple Dip

3/4 cup caramel sauce (the kind you buy to top ice cream)
1/4 cup smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup marshmallow Fluf
1 TBSP chopped peanuts as garnish (optional, but you'll gain sensitivity points for notifying the peanut allergy people that there is peanut butter in this dip)

Combine the caramel sauce and peanut butter until smooth. Fold in the marshmallow Fluf. Spoon dip into serving bowl and top with optional chopped peanuts.

Serve with sliced apples....Granny Smith's preferably.

The ONLY fruit I will eat are apples. Not baked or dipped apples, but I will happily dip a spoon into this and eat it straight up!

Oh yuck...and I'm not talking about your dip. I feel the "I can fix it" need to come over there and ply you with fruit after fruit after fruit. As Fessick would say, "That's inconceivable."
