Review & #giveaway: Marzetti Caramel Dip

Fall is in full force and I'm loving it! All I can think about is Pumpkin Spice Lattes and caramel apples. We even plan on taking a little trip to an apple orchard so we can pick some apples and then dip them in caramel. Thanks to Marzetti Caramel Dip there's an easy way to make caramel apples and you have plenty of choices of dips to choose from!

Marzetti Caramel Dips are a delicious complement for any occasion – whether it’s an easy addition to an entertaining platter or an indulgent afternoon treat. They offer the perfect accent or finishing touch to a variety of party favorites including apples, pears, pretzels and even pound cake. YUM! 

What I love is there are multiple flavors of dips to choose from! They have Cinnamon caramel, fat free caramel, light caramel, old fashioned caramel, peanut butter caramel, and the new sweet and salty caramel. I'm a big fan of the old fashioned caramel but I would really LOVE to try the sweet and salty. I just have to find it!

My take: We haven't been to the apple orchard yet so I really wanted to try something other than caramel apples. I saw this great and easy Caramel Dipped Marshmallow treats recipe on Marzetti's website and thought it would be great for the kids and I to make together. Luckily when I was at Walmart I found the perfect pumpkin shaped marshmallows and couldn't wait to try them out. It was really simple. You just put the marshmallow on the stick, dipped it in the heated caramel dip and then put your own yummy toppings on it.

Now, I took pictures but mind you, it was such an easy dish, I let the 3 and 2 year old help. So although they may not be that pretty, it was lots of fun for them!
