Peanut Apple Dip is almost like making your own peanut butter. It’s wonderful.  Coarsely ground peanuts mixed with a little brown sugar, vanilla, and cream cheese, which serves as a binder. Then use it as a dip with your favorite apples. So yummy and nutritious! 

Serving Peanut Apple Dip for Kid's Snack

I first made this recipe when our daughters were young for an after school snack. They loved it. And it’s so easy.

 

Cooking with Kids

It’s also a great recipe to make with your kids. Children love to be involved in your every day activities, especially when it comes to cooking. So let them. Give them step-by-step directions and let them help you make this recipe.

Roasted Peanuts

  • Begin by letting them help you gather the ingredients and measuring tools.
  • Have them measure the peanuts (and don’t complain if they steal a few to eat while they do it!)
  • Help them use the food processor or blender to grind the peanuts. If your children are too young for this, let them watch.
  • Instruct them to place bits of cream cheese into the processor with a butter knife.
  • Help them measure the brown sugar into a measuring cup. (Remember to pack the brown sugar until it is even at the top.)
  • Let them measure the vanilla extract.
  • Lastly, if your child is old enough, teach them how to safely cut an apple with a paring knife.

Never forget that food is a great way to bring families together–while you make it and when you gather to eat. Okay, let’s get started on this recipe!

 

Ingredients to Make Peanut Apple Dip

  • dry roasted peanuts
  • cream cheese at room temperature
  • brown sugar
  • vanilla extract
  • your favorite apples

 

Instructions for This Recipe

Ingredients Needed for this Dip

To begin, gather all your ingredients so that you have everything close at hand on the counter or table.

You’ll need a food processor or a blender to process the peanuts for this recipe.  An immersion blender would also work.

In a food processor, chop the roasted peanuts until they are coarsely ground.

When grinding the peanuts, try not to grind them too finely or you’ll actually make peanut butter. You want to see little bits of peanut, which will add more texture to the dip.

With a butter knife, add small chunks of cream cheese to the ground peanuts, along with firmly packed brown sugar and vanilla extract.

Processing Ingredients in the Food Processor

Process again until mixed well. Scrape the peanut dip from the food processor with a spoon or hard spatula.

Serve on a pretty platter or in a small bowl with your favorite sliced apples, such as Gala, Red Delicious, or Honey Crisp–especially when they are in season. They are so big and juicy!

Serving Peanut Apple Dip at a Tea Party

This apple dip is perfect for morning or afternoon snacks (for kids and grown-ups alike). It even makes a great addition to a tea party!

Store any unused dip in a container in the refrigerator for up to ten days. Although I doubt it will last more than a few days. This recipe will make about 2 cups of dip and will serve 8-10 people.
