Introduction: Crock Pot Apple Pie Dip

Picture of Crock Pot Apple Pie Dip

I love caramel and apples (see this Instructable,
but what I really LOVE is apples dipped in butter milk syrup. So why not make a dip, using a crock pot, apples and a modified butter milk syrup. This is what I came up with.

Step 1:

  • ¾ cup butter
  • ¾ cup butter milk
  • 1 ½ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla flavoring
  • 1 Tbs. baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp cloves
  • 5 cups peeled and chopped apples (your choice)
  • Pie crust of your choice (


  • Crock Pot
  • Large sauce pan
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Rubber scraper
  • Spoons

and sugar.

Step 5:

Step 6:

While cooking, measure the spices into a small bowl, set aside.

Step 7:

Bring the sauce to a boil (usually for Buttermilk syrup you stop here) keep cooking stirring every once in a while to keep it from burning. The goal is to reduce the amount of water in the sauce so that it becomes thick. Cook for 23 (+/-) minutes or until it reaches 220°F. It should be reduced to about half.

Step 8:

Remove from the heat and add the vanilla and soda. Stir.

Step 11:

Peel, core and cut up 4 to 5 medium size apples (this should make about 5 cups of chopped apples).

Step 12:

Pour the apples and spices into the crock pot,

Step 13:

stir and put the lid on.

Step 14:

Let the crock pot cook for 2 to 3 hours.

Step 15:

It can be served, warm or cold. I can also see this poured warm over vanilla ice cream. For dippers I made cookie pie crust found here: Or you can buy a pie crust or use your favorite pie crust recipe. After I made this, my Hubby came into the house wondering where the apple pie was, because the house smelled like apple pie.

Oh my this is GOOD. Enjoy!

I am fearful of trying this, I'm sure I'll need a 12- step intervention program to make me stop eating it. ;-)
