Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Fruit Dip is the perfect, easy-to-make sweet appetizer to pair with apple slices, waffle sticks, celery, or any party snacks!
This kid-friendly Peanut Butter Dip treat is sure to be a hit anywhere!
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 long can it keep?? Want to make on Saturday for Sunday brunch! Ok? Or make it that day??
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.
Can you use regular peanut butter. Does it have to unsweetened?
You can use any kind of peanut butter. Sweetened peanut butter will make sweeter cookies, but that's not a bad thing.
