Caramel apples have always been a favorite of mine. I love the mix of sweet and sour that comes with the Fall-inspired treat. I wanted to do something caramel apple related for a Halloween post. This is a dessert salad that has the taste of caramel apples, without all of the mess, and it only takes ten minutes to put together.
This salad is different from other caramel apple salads because instead of using cool whip I used cream cheese. The honey flavored cream cheese adds an extra sweetness to the salad that goes well with the tartness of the apples. The top is generously drizzled with chocolate and caramel sauce, just like the outside of an apple has sauce surrounding it.
1 granny smith apple
1/2 cup honey pecan philadelphia cream cheese
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1. Place cream cheese in a bowl.
2. Stir in apple, cinnamon, and nutmeg
3. Drizzle the top with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, and pecans
I hope that you give this dessert salad a try and love it just as much as I do.
Have a happy and safe Halloween everyone.
