Quick Caramel Apple Dip

This four-ingredient caramel dip is so simple and yummy. People always want to know how long I slaved over the stove to prepare it and are amazed to find that I made it in the microwave. When large marshmallows aren’t on hand, I substitute 2 cups of mini marshmallows. —Becky Heiner, West Valley City, Utah

    Good, but makes a massive amount. I'll cut the recipe in half next time. That will also solve the problem of having to buy 2 bags of caramels to get to 14 oz.

    Beware - caramels come in 11 oz. bags now. Most recipes still say 14 oz. because that was the standard for so long. It seems the good old days are gone.

    Does this get hard after it's served or do I need to keep it warm? Such as serve in a crock pot.

    Brought this to the office Christmas potluck and it was a big hit. A little messy tp make - the caramels are sticky as you would expect, but it tasty and gets recipe request! Thanks for a good recipe!
