the best apple dip {happy halloweenie!}

well. there really ought to be a photo of my costumed child in this post.

we have purposely not purchased a costume for halloween this year. yet.
elijah obsessively loves dress-up and costumes. all year long.
we can't wait to have him choose a fun new one! we would just rather pay a sale price. amen.

as a consolation for the missing costume cuteness, i brought you a treat:

this recipe is from a vintage church bulletin. i mean, at least 1994.
it's like caramel. but not.
i've tweaked it to my own liking. i'm a boss like that.
it's my favorite dip for apples, in all the land.

apple dip
14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
1 1/2 cups butterscotch chips
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
your favorite apples, sliced

in saucepan on low heat, 
melt and stir butterscotch chips, condensed milk and salt until very smooth.
remove from heat, add vinegar and cinnamon, mixing thoroughly. 
serve warm with apples slices!
store leftovers haha in refrigerator, and reheat when you need a snack.

make it today!

and for the cute costume fix, a memory of last year:


  1. This sounds so good. I might have to go make it.

  2. Well, amen again on that one. My cutie patootie is wanting "dress up" for her birthday, so we'll be combing the clearance next week for that.

    Also, I am going to email you another apple dip recipe. It will also knock your socks off.

  3. you are one super smart mom.
    always down for a bargain.

    also. wowowwowowowowowwww. elijah has gotten so big since last year.
    that buzz costume is melting my heart.

    happy halloweenie sweet friend. :)

  4. Really love this! I would love for you to add this, and more of your amazing activities, to my weekly Mom's Library Link-Up.

    Thanks and be blessed,

  5. Happy Halloweenie! Love that! I've been saying that all day to anyone who will listen. Mostly just the dog. Ha! Is that dip really that easy?!!!? Yum!!!!
    I might post a link on my blog to share that too:)
    Have a great day girl!

  6. firstly, your child is freaking adorable.

    secondly, please refrain from posting such goodness. i will never eat anything else with my apples again.

    and when i say refrain, i mean keep it coming forever.

  7. love it thanks for sharing! ps buzz in darling!

  8. my mouth is watering. what the heck. haha!

    i loved e.g. in that costume. i still do!

    my mom thinks of a new motto for each new decade she is in. when i turned thirty a few years back i decided that her motto idea was good. my motto for my thirties is "thrifty in my thirties" so yes totally with ya never pay full price EVER. amen.
