Only recently I had a big sweet tooth. Like I do when I make this Chunky Monkey Banana Cream Pie or my Vegan Buckeye Brownies. I don’t know maybe it’s just the weather. Oh yes it’s getting colder.

I can feel the season coming, you know it. What about you? We’re close to the holidays and on the brink of Christmas season. Folks, I can’t believe the year is almost over.

It must be the chilling and relaxing, almost calming atmosphere that is about fall. Time for sweaters, hot beverages, long strolling watching the autumn glow leaves.

Heck yes, that’s a magic feeling. And this Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Dip fits perfectly to it. Trust me when food makes you feel good then it’s a thing. So enjoy and know it’s creamy, elegant, timeless, addictive from the first taste to the last, shareable, made for all holiday events, gatherings, potlucks and of course just for yourself.

Make this Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Dip

You won’t believe how easy this is to make? First mix cream cheese, maple, and vanilla powder in a bowl and mix until they well combined. Set aside and hop over to a heated skillet. Add pecans, maple and, again vanilla powder and roast them for around 4 minutes.

Next and last is assembling: simply cover your cream cheese dip with the prepared caramel, add a pinch of salt. Oh yes so good! The magic of salted caramel will happen and finally top with the maple pecans, enjoy.

This makes an amazing diary free alternative for snacking, dessert and just for you.

The Magic of Salted Caramel

Salted Caramel is a classic and timeless flavor, used in many things like cakes, ice-cream, nut butters, or beverages.

It’s just all about the combination of saltiness and sweetness which is not only a thing in the fall or holiday seasons. It’s a flavor which we will enjoy all year long.

Caramel for itself is a really delicious flavor. But adding a pinch salt will take it to another level, magic completed.

Make the most of fall and enjoy some pecans

Pecans are not only satisfying and delicious, they are also high in anti-inflammatory benefits, protect against oxidative stress, thanks to the high amount of antioxidants.

Rich in minerals like manganese, copper, magnesium, thiamine, zinc, iron and phosphor.

Plus these are so much fun to eat thinking about the nice crunch when snacking.
