Paleo Salted Caramel Apple Dip

Happy Halloween Weekend! Since Halloween falls on a Wednesday this year, I am officially celebrating this weekend! I LOVE Halloween and really get into the couples costumes. In the past, we have been Sonny and Cher, and Adam and Eve (don't ask me how I got the boy to wear a nude-colored unitard with ivy leaves strategically sewn/glued on), and this year we are going to be a Pirate and Wench!
 
The funny thing is, that as much as I love Halloween, I HATE scary movies and being frightened. No haunted houses for this girl! Last weekend my girlfriends convinced me to watch Scream and I had to make them check all the closets and watch a "happy" movie before they could leave. 
 
Whether you choose to have a spooky or sweet Halloween weekend, I hope everyone enjoys this salted caramel apple dip! This seriously killed my craving for an Affy Tapple.

 
 
Ingredients
2 Tbl SunButter (or almond butter)
2 Tbl honey
1 Tbl coconut milk, canned
1 tsp vanilla
pinch of coarse sea salt
 
Instructions
  1.  Place the SunButter and honey in a small microwaveable bowl. Heat for about 20 seconds until warmed through and easy to mix
  2. Mix the honey and SunButter until smooth
  3. Stir in the coconut milk and the vanilla
  4. Finish with sea salt and serve with apple slices


A word to the wise, if you are doing Whole30 or any other type of Paleo Challenge, I would skip this. Even if you aren't challenging, I would approach this as a rare treat!



 
Enjoy!

  3. Have been looking for a paleo dessert recipe that doesn't require me to plan weeks in advance and order expensive exotic ingredients from the internet. This is so simple and so perfect! I can't wait to try it!

  4. I made this yesterday -- I have to say when I tasted it straight out of the microwave (with just the almond butter and honey at that point), it was delicious as is! I didn't think the coconut milk and vanilla added much for anyone who doesn't have those handy. And after I ate an apple with this on it, I had the energy of the Tasmanian Devil (without the crash afterward). I had about half of it leftover and I reheated it this morning and ate another apple :) Will be hard not to make this everyday! Thanks so much for the recipe!
