Peanut Butter and Maple Apple Dip

Yum

 Creamy peanut butter, maple and cinnamon cheesecake dip is a perfect way to enjoy a bowl full of apple slices. 
 
I am trying to get my kids to love apples more because I think they are a wonderful after school snack. So I decided to make a tempting peanut butter dip to entice them into eating some. 

This dip only takes a few minutes to make and it's really yummy.  My daughter even ate it with some strawberries, so apples are not the only fruit you can dip in it.

My son then said that it would be a perfect topping for some waffles or pancakes.  I think I'll be making some pancakes tomorrow for sure to try this idea out.

Here is a Tuesday Tip on how to keep your apples from turning brown on you. I used my salt method to keep these apples looking picture perfect and they are still fine hours later in the fridge on the fruit platter when the kids came home after school to enjoy their snack. 

This dip would also make a fun party idea for Halloween.  So if you are planning on bobbing for apples this Halloween, make some of this dip to enjoy with them.
