Maple Cinnamon Fruit Dip

Maple Cinnamon Fruit Dip

You guys, it’s entirely possible we put up our Halloween decorations this week. You know us, we’ve been counting the days and could wait no more!

I don’t make very many dessert dips, but the idea of a maple cinnamon dip just seemed too dreamy not to make. And you know, ’tis the season, and I had a huge bowl of my most favorite honeycrisp apples to enjoy!

This fruit dip couldn’t be easier to make. First start with either some whipped topping. If you are opposed to whipped topping, you can also quickly whip up some homemade whipped cream to use (the dip may just be a bit softer). Then I add some cream cheese so really this dip tastes like maple cinnamon cheesecake! Oh yeah!

Of course, you will also need some good maple syrup. I like to buy mine at Costco. I know it can be pricey, but it’s so worth it! It adds such a warm and comforting flavor to the fruit dip and also acts as a sweetener. A touch of cinnamon and nutmeg and that’s it!

This dip is seriously scrumptious and taking these photos was not easy because Maddie wouldn’t stop trying to eat it!
