Brown Sugar Pecan Apple Dip is creamy with a sweet brown sugar flavor and crunchy pecans! It makes wonderful party food and is also great in sack lunches! With just three ingredients, this dip is ready in 5 minutes!
When Fall rolls around I’m the first one cheering for all the wonderful and extravagant cooking! I’m very excited about football (because of the food), fall parties and of course my beloved Thanksgiving!
As much as I love the seven layer bean dips and meatballs and cheese platters, I always think a great party has some variety! After all, something different is always fun!
Making Apple Dip
This apple dip is always a home run for me! The kids love the dip because it is a bit sweet. The adults usually enjoy something a bit lighter to accompany all the heavy fare. And of course it is apple season! You have to enjoy these wonderful, juicy fruits in all their glory at regular intervals during the fall.
For those of you who will pack approximately 180 school lunches this year, I highly recommend this as a great option to get your kiddos to eat their fruit! See my note below on how to prevent apples from browning so you can pack them up.
I hope this one finds some room on your fall table!
How to Keep Apples From Browning
Whenever I need apples to not brown for a few days, I use a Fruit – Fresh. Usually I use about twice the recommended amount and make sure to soak the fruit for 30-45 minutes. After that I can drain and refrigerate, bringing the fruit out at party time or packing it in a lunch.

I know two boys that would gobble up the entire bowl. Sounds perfect for fall.
Definitely boy and kid approved!
I love the fruity deliciousness in this pecan apple dip! I am glad to find another delicious use for apples right now. Thanks for the yummy recipe!
Any time! You can never have too many apple recipes this time of year!
I love this! And lucky me–my in-laws have a pecan tree in their yard, so fresh pecans for me when I make this!
Very lucky you! I admit to a bit of jealously right about now! I grew up with nut trees (walnut and filbert) and I miss it very much! I’m sure pecans are quite the treat!
