Caramel Pecan Cheesecake Fruit Dip

This cheesecake fruit dip, perfect for any occasion, is packed with caramel and pecans. It takes minimal effort to prepare and can be served with more than fruits!

Recipes like this one are great to take to holiday events, when you need a dessert or dish to pass. I can almost guarantee that you’ll bring home an empty bowl.

It’s no secret that pecans are expensive. Save money by buying them in bulk before the holidays and freezing them until you need them. Out of the shell and frozen properly, these nuts have a freezer life of approximately two years. Any airtight container will do.

Just a couple of quick tips, before you put this recipe together. Allow the cream cheese to warm to room temperature and use a refrigerated stainless-steel bowl to prepare the whipping cream. Doing both of these things makes the entire process a whole lot easier and your dip as smooth as it can possibly be.

Apples are probably the best choice to serve with this caramel pecan cheesecake dip. Other possibilities include pears, strawberries and bananas. Honestly, it’s really just a matter of taste. Consider peeling the apples if you’re serving this to younger children. This eliminates the possibility of choking on the skin.

You can easily substitute the vanilla for another flavoring such as almond. Even half and half would work well. This is one of those dips where you have a little bit of “wiggle room” when it comes to creativity in the kitchen.

That being said, it’s easy to switch out plain cream cheese with the pineapple or strawberry version that many grocery stores carry. Another fun (and yummy) idea is to drizzle chocolate or hot fudge sauce on top of the caramel layer.

The next time you’re craving something gooey and sweet, why not whip up this tasty fruit dip? Your family and your stomach will thank you for it!
