Caramel Cheesecake Dip: if this doesn’t get you in the mood for apple season, nothing will!

This easy Caramel Cheesecake Dip is the perfect fall recipe! Use it to dip apples or as a party dip!

Ever since I made my first Skinny Cheesecake Dip last spring I’ve been dying to make it again. It’s one of those dangerous dips – I can eat it with a spoon. (Which, I guess, is better than inhaling it with a pound of graham crackers, but still.) Last week I gave into my temptation: I made the cheesecake dip and I added caramel.

That was an even better decision, don’t you think??? Fluffy, sweet cheesecake dip layered with gooey caramel. Just hand me a spoon.

Easy Caramel Cheesecake Dip - totally decadent and perfect for fall!

You want to know something funny? The other day I was at the coffee house and I ordered my usual (an Americano, I’m addicted). I told the lady my name was Dorothy. When they called out my order, they yelled Jordan (my daughter’s name, for those of you who don’t know). I mean, they call out Dana and Diana on a regular basis and 99% of the time my name is spelled Dorthy on the cup, but Jordan?

That’s just weird.

Caramel Cheesecake Dip made with International Delight Caramel Macchiato Creamer!

Speaking of buying coffee drinks, want to know how to save money? Use flavored coffee creamer. International Delight® Caramel Macchiato Coffee Creamer tastes like the real thing and it’s, like, pennies comparatively. Also? I love sweetening my cheesecake dips with creamer because it adds sweetness and flavor at the same time. (I love ingredients that do twice the work!) You can add any flavor creamer (or iced coffee) to make whatever flavor cheesecake dip you love.

(Just make sure to add toooooons of caramel, obviously.)

If you’ve ever made cheesecake dip before, you know it’s super easy. There is only one really important thing to remember: room temperature. You want all your ingredients to be room temperature when you mix them together to avoid lumps. Simply mix it with an electric mixer and then layer the cream cheese dip in a bowl with some caramel sauce.

Apples are optional.

My preferred dipper is a spoon. Or my face.

Caramel Cheesecake Dip

This cheesecake dip is so easy to make and tastes so good with caramel sauce! You can easily make this dip sugar-free or low-fat! Serve it as an apple dip this fall.


  • 4 ounces regular or reduced-fat cream cheese — room temperature
  • 3 tablespoons International Delight Caramel Macchiato Creamer — or your favorite flavor
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup Cool Whip
  • Caramel Ice Cream Topping


  1. Beat cream cheese with a hand mixer until smooth. Beat in coffee creamer and vanilla. Mix until no lumps remain. Stir in Cool Whip. Chill until ready to serve.
  2. Layer the cheesecake dip in a serving bowl with caramel sauce between the layers and more drizzled on top. If your caramel sauce comes in a jar, put some in a ziploc bag with the tip cut off to drizzle it.
  3. Serve with graham crackers or fruit, it’s especially good with apples.

  1. That is completely weird (in a good way) about how they called your name. Maybe because the vowel sounds are the same, followed by an “R” (English teacher nerd alert!)? But they never get my name at Starbucks, so I just tell them my name is Summer.
    This is a great transition dip! Now I can kind of wrap my mind around fall. Kind of. The caramel is amazing!

  2. Oh this cheesecake dip looks dangerously addictive, Dorothy! I love it! Such a great idea to add in caramel. And I’ve loving the flavored coffee creamer in here, too!

  3. As much as I think apples would be GREAT in here…I think my WHOLE face would be MUCH better dipped right in! Cheesecake is my jam, so I am TOTALLY diggin’ this dip! pinned!

  4. That is so freaky! Maybe they are a fan of your CFC and know Jordan from your posts! Anyway, I hope the coffee was nice, Jordan ;D Dorothy, you are a genius, this dip looks amazing, Autumn has already reached us, the leaves are turning orange and brown and I have just order some ankle boots! 

  5. Gah! I’m so excited for pumpkin and apple everything. I’m trying to resist the urge to buy candy corn for a few more weeks. This looks insanely good, Dorothy. 😀 

  6. Eeeeee apple season is here! This looks like the perfect way to enjoy them!!

  7. This is so much more dangerous than a slice of cheesecake because – no portion control! (not for me anyway)

  8. You genius. I love making steamers with coffee creamer but I never thought about putting it in cheesecake dip. I totally will now! Love this idea!

  9. I definitely think my preferred method of eating this would be my face, because this looks amazing! And baristas can never get my name right either. Somehow “michelle” is lost in translation, and I get the joy of answering to “mitchell” and “michael,” lol. 

  10. I use to drink caramel macchiatos by the boatload with extra-extra caramel. I was basically drinking caramel 🙂 And now I can just eat it! YAY!! 🙂

  17. This is seriously all types of wonderful.  I cannot stop staring at it with glee!

  18. Life is all about balance. And I say the apples balance out how much of that dip I would consume. Because…ohmygod. WANT.

  19. YES!!! I am so ready for apple season – this has been the summer from hell and I need it over ASAP

  20. Fall is my favorite season, and caramel is like the mascot of the season! And the barista –  Dorthy!?  Really, haven’t they ever seen the Wizard of Oz, and that charming, compassionate and brave girl!?

  28. Yes, please. This looks lickable! 🙂

  29. That is pretty bizarre that they called your daughter’s name, what are the chances? I’ve never had them call me a different name, but they always spell it wrong.  This cheesecake dip looks amazing, that caramel!  Yum!  Perfect with apples!

  30. Just hand me a bowl and a spoon, so I can go to town on this crazy awesome dip!  And yes, I am so ready for all things apple and pumpkin all the time!!!  It’s time, right?

  32. I saw the best dips are the ones you eat out of the fridge with a spoon when no one is watching! 

  33. I adore a good caramel dip, especially for apples. It’s a great treat but it feels a bit healthier than other desserts. Pinning, Yumming and Stumbling!
