Creamy Caramel Dip

Because I feed three hungry people in my family (my husband, a member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and our two boys), I love satisfying snacks that are easy to make. We all appreciate this cool, light fruit dip. —Karen Laubman, Spruce Grove, Alberta

    My children and family absolutely love this fruit dip! Nobody can believe that there isn't any caramel in it! I've been making this dip for parties, get togethers and just as a snack for years. It's the most requested dip for parties. If I could give it 20 stars I would!! It's smooth, creamy and absolutely delicious.

    If I could give this 10 stars I would. I have been making this for YEARS after seeing it in one of the earlier editions of TOH. My children have requested this for parties, and when they have friends over for years. I've shared this recipe with 50 people. I serve it mostly with different apples and sometimes bananas and strawberries. This has been a winner in my book for 15 years. I've always wanted to write a review and thank Karen for sharing THANK YOU Karen!

    I thought it was OK but not great. No one else really liked it.

    I have made this a couple of times for work and it has always been a huge success. Extra bonus the kids love it too.
