Chocolate and caramel is a winning combination under just about any circumstance. OK maybe not chocolate caramel hot dogs but it is good just about any other time. Take this dip for instance. Creamy caramels are melted with half and half, cinnamon and vanilla. Then melted dark chocolate is added to the mix and the whole dip is topped with chopped nuts. Trust me when I say it will satisfy any sweet tooth craving.
I have not had much success with making my own caramel in the past so I use a bit of a short cut with this caramel dip recipe. With Halloween season in full swing and the candy aisles in the grocery store busting at the seams with candy it seemed like the perfect opportunity to stock up on some chewy caramels. And as it turns out, not only are chewy caramels the perfect treat, when melted they also make a mean dip.
This dip is best served when it is warm but cools off rather quickly. If it does become too hard, you can pop it in the microwave for 30-45 seconds to soften it up a bit. Enjoy!
