I love me a nice crunchy tart yet sweet apple. Honeycrisps and pink ladies are my favorites. But what’s better than a really good apple? An apple dipped in this stuff, that’s what.

I wanted to feel like a kid again so I toasted up a freezer waffle and used that for the dip too. Soooo flippin’ good!

What it tastes like:

Remember when you were a kid and the only thing better than peanut butter cookie dough was chocolate chip cookie dough? Oh, who am I kidding. The same thing still stands as an adult. Peanut butter cookie dough is freaking good. Well, you know what? This dip actually tastes like peanut butter cookie dough.

That’s my son’s hand in the picture. Isn’t it cute? He loves helping me with my food photos because that means he gets the first bite. I make my kids earn their keep.

I like to make a special apple waffle peanut butter dip combo. Doesn’t this little bite sized treat look yum? It’s not the healthiest dip. I’m not claiming that it is. I’m just telling you that it tastes great. And even if it isn’t the healthiest, you need a sweet snack every now and again.

There are endless dippers you can use too – apples, waffles, crackers, pretzel sticks, celery, your fingers, etc. Take my advice and make this with crunchy peanut butter. You can thank me later.

How to make it:

The first thing you will need to do is gather up all of your yummy ingredients. It takes only the best, sweet ingredients to create good snack foods like this Peanut butter dipping sauce! The secret behind the sweet fluffiness of this peanut butter dipping sauce is the whipping cream, peanut butter and cream cheese.

After you have gathered your peanut butter, cream cheese, brown sugar, whipping cream, and vanilla, the dip is made very easily! You just need to add all of your ingredients into a stand mixer and beat on medium high until all the ingredients are well combined and fluffy. This should take around five minutes.

This recipe will give you around two cups of delicious peanut butter dipping sauce. We all know that most any fruit and peanut butter are a match made in heaven, so imagine what it is like when the peanut butter is traded for a sweeter, more delicious peanut butter dip!

  1. Have you tried this without the brown sugar? I try to not eat added sugar, wondering how it will be if I keep it out.

    1. I personally wouldn’t like the taste unsweetened, but it would definitely still taste good with a natural sweetener like honey or maple syrup.

    1. The fat content is much higher in heavy cream than half and half. Coconut cream is actually a good alternative.

        1. I haven’t used it in a cake. Compared to frosting, it’s actually not that sweet. I think a thin layer would be good if you were already planning on a cream cheese frosting.

  2. Adding all the ingredients will make a smooth dip so the crunchy peanuts disappear, honey. Perhaps after whisking ingredients except the peanut butter and later on slowly incorporating the peanut butter would make what’s in your picture BUT it isn’t included in your explanations. The rather standard recipe, after all.

    1. Did you make the recipe? Also, I said I prefer crunchy peanut butter, but it’s not required. No where do I state that it’s full of crunchy bits.

    1. This will actually keep for several days. Just refrigerate and let come to room temp and give it a good stir or whip before serving.

    1. You can use any kind of peanut butter. Sweetened peanut butter will make sweeter cookies, but that’s not a bad thing.
